The founder of a new political effort dedicated to combating political "bad actors" discussed why there was a need for such an effort during a Tuesday interview with Raw Story.
Attorney Daniel Uhlfelder first came to national political attention after sparing with his Florida neighbor, former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR). Huckabee attempted to silence Uhlfelder by filing a complaint with the Florida Bar association -- threatening his livelihood.
But Huckabee's move backfired spectacularly, and Uhlfelder went from having 400 followers on Twitter to over 100,000.
Uhlfelder wants to use his new platform to help others who been targeted by powerful people seeking to silence them.
On Tuesday, Uhlfelder announced the launch of a new Political Action Committee named the Make My Day PAC.

The PAC is focused on fighting bad actors, lifting up victims and using social media and contributions to do good, Uhfelder says.
Since taking on Huckabee, Uhfelder has been highly critical of several politicians, including Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA). Raw Story asked if Nunes should be worried about being targeted.
“I would say Mr. Nunes checks a number of the boxes," Uhlfelder said.
Other names mentioned during there interview include former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is considering running for governor in Arkansas and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who represents Uhlfelder in Congress.
Raw Story also asked about the still-pending complaint with the Florida Bar.
"I’m confident that I will prevail," he said. "I’m not going to be pushed around for doing the right thing."
Here is some of what Uhlfelder has said about politicians who could be target by the Make My Day PAC:
