Help Ed Brayton fight a lawsuit.

The other day Ed posted:

So it looks like I’m going to be sued by a white supremacist who doesn’t like it that I’ve called him a white supremacist several times over the last few years. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail right now because I need to hire an attorney (one in Texas, unfortunately) and get some advice on how exactly what I can and can’t say publicly, but in order to do that I need to raise some funds. Here’s what I do know: I’m not going to back down from this. I’m not going to let this racist jerk intimidate me into silence. But I need your help on this one, if you can give it.

Ed is sending a message though: he’s wanting to file an anti-SLAPP claim, which will increase the upfront cost on his end but might lead to recovery of costs later on.  But this will take money.  Ed it one of the most fair-minded people in the biz.  He’s a great guy, a genius.  I will send what little I can.  I know my father also sent him a check.  If you can help, please donate (and help spread the word).

Here’s how you can donate:
