Ask HN: Public Corruption Clearinghouse?
10 points by throwaway250k 9 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite
I got convicted of a felony in US federal court, in spite of being innocent and having documentary proof to back it up. The judge suppressed my evidence, the jury never heard it, and here I am.

The problem I’ve run into is not that I had no proof that the government was breaking the law during the prosecution, but that nobody cares. I have ample proof, but journalists immediately hellban me, whether introduced in person, on phone, on Signal, or email. It’s bizarre.

And it occurred to me, that as the government gets more and more corrupt officials in the judiciary and law enforcement, I can’t be the only one with this problem.

So I’m in the process of launching a site that acts as a clearinghouse for naming names, calling public officials (who are above the law) out for their documented abuses, providing documention for said abuses, to put them on notice, and hopefully bring America’s future government to shine some light into that deep dark hole.

It’s not libel if it’s true.

I’m looking for advice, others with documentary evidence they can’t give away, and especially non-US entities who want to help the US get its house in order, by providing mirror hosting from the safety of a first-world nation. Email in profile.
