Ron Paul Supporters, St. Charles County GOP Chairman Scuffle Before Brent Stafford's Trespassing Trial

Ron Paul supporters scuffled with St. Charles County Central Republican Chairman Eugene Dokes and his wife Tuesday morning before a St. Peters municipal trial.

Brent Stafford fought a trespassing charge in St. Peters municipal court Tuesday morning. The charge stems from an arrest after the St. Charles County Republican Caucus March 17.

Stafford, a Ron Paul supporter, said the caucus was improperly shut down. Stafford said he was trying to legally reconvene the caucus on the Francis Howell North High School parking lot when he was arrested.

St. Peters Police Community and Media Relations Officer Melissa Doss said four protesters were near the St. Peters Justice Center before and during Tuesday’s trial, and some were carrying Eugene Dokes campaign signs that had been defaced. The signs had red circles and a slash through “Dokes for State Representative.”

Stafford’s trial has been held over until the next municipal court date at 6:30 p.m. July 31.

“Some of the testimony was drawn out,” Stafford told Patch. “I wish we had gotten further along. Some of the questions had to be repeated or rephrased. But the judge said we’ll finish it (on July 31) if we have to go to midnight.”

Stafford commented on Ron Paul supporters donating money to support his legal defense.

“The Missouri Freedom Center isn’t charging me anything for legal representation, but they have costs and the money raised goes to support them,” Stafford said.

He said one fundraising effort paid for a privately supplied court reporter to work at the trial because municipal courts typically do not provide one.

“I’m thankful there’s a lot of people supporting us. These are real constitutional issues that are involved. On one hand, it’s a petty, personal thing against me. But on the other hand, it’s as basic as freedom of speech and freedom of assembly,” Stafford said.

BEWARE of VIRUS!

I didn't know much about the background of this situation so I did some Googling and when I tried to find out something about this idiot Dokes, the website edokes.com, (with whatever ending you put on it), is blocked by my anti-virus program. It's giving me the notice of:

Trojan.IS.Agent.GOZ

Now, I know nothing about these things, but in case this is a problem, I am letting you know.

I did find a good article about the mess Dokes made of the caucus:

It's criminal what Dokes and his cronies have done. THEY ARE THE ONES WHO SHOULD BE BROUGHT UP ON CHARGES.

May justice prevail

ALL the best to you!

Go Get em Brent!
