South Carolina Democrat Judge Campaigns Arrest Warrant

A Democrat candidate for Probate Judge in South Carolina is still campaigning despite the warrant issued for her arrest.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for Diondra Love, who is campaigning to become Probate Court judge in York County, South Carolina. Love is wanted for second-degree domestic violence stemming from an August 3 police report filed by Love’s husband, Steven Love, who alleges she hit him in his eye. The warrant was issued on August 8, and York police say they have been unable to locate the candidate.

Yet, over the last two months Love has continued her campaign for public office. Her campaign website describes her as “innovative and knowledgeable,” and suggests her “critical thinking and communication skills” allow her to correctly assess difficult situations.

Her crowd funding campaign on political website CrowdPAC shows Love has been fundraising in the period after the arrest warrant was issued. Since September, Love has raised over $1,000, with the most recent donation coming only two weeks ago.

Love’s campaign literature states she is a “Criminal Justice Instructor” with “over 17 years as a mental health administrator,” who has experience “helping attorneys build comprehensive and cohesive cases.”

Love also describes herself as “a mom, wife, daughter, sister and friend,” who had “core family values, morals and determination” instilled in her from a young age.

While South Carolina election officials have confirmed there is no law requiring a candidate to stop his or her political campaign due to an arrest warrant, there has also been no official statement from Love or her campaign.  It is unclear if she is aware of the arrest warrant.

The Love campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.

Free Speech

Does the Arizona Constitution Provide Means for Lawmakers to Crack Down on Big Tech Censorship?

Does the Arizona Constitution provide protections from Big Tech?

The Arizona Constitution provides stronger protections for freedom of speech than the First Amendment does, potentially providing legislative solutions to Big Tech censorship in the state at a moment where political censorship is more pervasive than ever.

Article 2 Section 6, Arizona Constitution states that “Every person may freely speak, write, and publish on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that right. “

This differs greatly from the federal constitution in that it doesn’t limit the powers of a legislature to restrict freedom of speech. The US Constitution identifies “Congress” as the body it’s restricting from making a law abridging the freedom of speech.

The speech rights established by the Arizona Constitution are thus expressed positively; recognizing a right belonging to the people, as opposed to negating an infringement of said right.

Quite obviously, the Arizona Constitution was written in an 1910, an era in which the internet would’ve been just as inconceivable as it was in 1789.

In a 2019 Arizona Supreme Court case, the state’s highest court recognized in a 4-3 judgement that the Arizona Constitution provided greater protections than the federal constitution. The case recognized that violations of the First Amendment would represent de facto violations of the

It’s not outside the realm of possibility that the Arizona Attorney General, or state legislature, could hold Big Tech oligarchs to account for violating the Article 2 Section 6 rights of Arizona citizens- especially in a context the major platforms are collectively adjudicated to be acting as a trust in order to suppress competition and silence lawful speech.

Three Arizona legislators called upon Attorney General Mark Brnovich to begin an antitrust investigation into Big Tech oligarchs following the coordinated deplatforming operation against Parler, in which both Amazon and Apple colluded to restrict the free speech platform from the internet.

In an era where the overwhelming majority of free speech is communicated online, the censorious actions of Big Tech very plausibly represent an assault of the right of free expression guaranteed in the Arizona Constitution. Both chambers of Arizona’s legislature remain Republican, even as the state has become purple, and action against Big Tech censorship on the state level could become a real possibility in the coming years.
