White Nationalist Richard Spencer is begging for money to hire an attorney as his legal and financial woes continue to grow.
Spencer is asking for $25,000 to defend himself in a federal lawsuit over the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Right Wing Watch reported.
“I am under attack and I need your help,” Spencer said in a public appeal. “Some of the biggest and baddest law firms in the United States are suing me, along with some other prominent figures, in civil court.”
Spencer recently had a falling out with his longtime lawyer, Kyle Bristow.
“This case is a conspiracy theory in the truest sense of that term,” he argued. “This is a mockery of justice.”
“Put simply, they want to shut me — and all of us — down,” Spencer claimed.
He argued the goal of the lawsuit is to “take down the alt-right’s most prominent spokesman, that is me.”
“It is now time for me to lawyer up,” he said in a public YouTube video.
In October, three men were arrested for attempted homicide following a Spencer speech in Gainsville, Florida. Spencer’s National Policy Institute bounced a $10,564 check to the University of Florida to rent the auditorium for his speech.
