State representative and liberty lover Tim O’Flaherty of Manchester has put forth a bill that repeals the act of adultery as a crime, which according to the state, hasn’t been enforced in a decade. It’s amazing that any police resources were spent on such a ridiculous investigation even a decade ago!
The bill was overwhelmingly passed by the NH house in a 268-29 vote. The senate votes today and according to WCVB, governor Maggie Hassan has pledged to sign the bill if it reaches her desk.
I’ll update this story as the senate vote is revealed.
UPDATE (6:44p) – this has passed the NH senate in a voice vote. Presuming Hassan signs it as she’s pledged to, the repeal goes into effect on Jan 1st, 2015.

If you’ve been reading the Free Keene blog for the last year, you know that in Summer of 2013, the NH DMV suspended my driving “privileges” indefinitely, until I got a NH driver’s license. You also know that for many years I have been using the name Ian Freeman without going through the probate process to change my name legally. In my interactions with the state and city, this name-change-in-fact has had mixed results. I was able to successfully register to vote as Ian Freeman and run for office under that name, but most courts would not recognize my name change. Though, there were a couple exceptions, including Concord district and MA’s Palmer district courts. However, most robed men would refuse to recognize it, even though I would cite NH supreme court decision Moskowitz vs Moskowitz that makes it pretty clear that one can change one’s name in NH without probate court, simply by using the new name. They just ignored the decision.
Since I had been ordered to get a drivers’ license under threat of violence, I decided that would be a good time to do a legal name change. (I’d actually tried this a couple of years ago but was stopped when I was arrested for going to court. That no trespass order for which I was arrested was eventually thrown out and the case against me dismissed.)
The DMV had told me my “privileges” would be suspended as of Nov 5th. After that, there was a short window of time where if I got their license, the $100 re-instatement fee would not apply, so I was in a hurry to get it done. The probate court process was simple and relatively quick for government work, but of course, I was paying them $105, and they tend to be more efficient when getting paid. I got the official name change document from the probate court on November 7th and went down to the DMV to get the NH drivers’ license.
I figured I had everything required – old license, voter ID under the name Ian Freeman and name change document from probate, but no – turns out there was an unwritten requirement: (more…)
The producers of AKPF #1 are pleased to present this special edition family friendly censored edition of the thirty-eighth episode of controversial Cheshire television talk series Black Sheep Rising.

Shortly after the conclusion of the three day Robin Hood of Keene evidentiary hearing, which led to the dismissal of civil lawsuits against the Merry People, nearly complete video records of the hearings were posted online to Fr33manTVraw and the FreeKeene youtube channel. Unfortunately, due to a technical malfunction midway through day two of proceedings, approximately sixteen minutes of direct examination of a witness was excluded from publication.
To restore the public record, the Merry People have obtained an audio record of the entire hearing from the court. The corrupted file was re-edited with audio from the missing segment affixed in the proper location and inserted into the raw video playlist. Enjoy the now complete record of the Robin Hood of Keene civil trial, which was performed on August 12, September 30, and October 01 of 2013, and currently awaits appeal to the NH supreme court.
Why I plead guilty to “disobeying”: I don’t have time to make a video right now, so a post will have to do. Monday morning, I was ready for a trial. We walked into the Laconia court house, and my attorney Seth Hipple asked to speak to me. He informed me that prosecutor Jim Sawyer had contacted him that morning and said he believed I had given false information on the bail paperwork I filled out in jail and that he intended to charge me with perjury.
What would this have meant? Regardless of the outcome of Monday’s trial, it would have meant ANOTHER trial and – because my attorney was at the jail when I was doing paperwork – I would have to hire ANOTHER lawyer. Jim Sawyer was willing to stop the additional assault if I would pay $100 and admit to committing the horrendous crime of not obeying orders shouted by a jackboot in the street.
So I had a choice – more hours of my life to the state and fistfuls of money to another lawyer, or leaving a situation that had just taken a very bad turn. (more…)
