    Does he want to give up his self-proclaimed martyrdom?

    Let's think about this: an illegal auction of public lands, Tim interrupted an ILLEGAL auction of public lands. Thank you Tim. And btw he was not allowed to pay the first payment for the 14 parcels, so as to ensure his so called fraud was indisputable, and btw he was not the only bidder who didn't follow through to pay for the parcels he won, but he is the only one prosecuted. Wrong, wrong wrong. He's been made an example, and I for one appreciate his sacrifice. You'll always be welcome at my Thanksgiving table Tim!

    He's lucky he's only serving two years.

    Real heroes who believe in their causes are happy to go to jail for them. Apparently this guy isn't that committed.

    Tim doesn't understand, or doesn't care, that he injured people who worked hard to earn and invest their resources. He also hurt taxpayers. His crimes should not, and will not, go unpunished. He must learn that his desire to press his political agenda is bounded by the laws of this state and this country, and that he cannot choose to harm others' interests without consequences. He can make his own personal choices, but not choices for innocent fellow citizens who disagree with his personal politics.

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving in jail Timmy...

    Correction to the Headline- he is not an "environmental activist" he is a "convicted criminal."

    Let's call things what they are, unless this is more advocacy opinion, not factual news reporting.

    he claims he didn't get to prevent his defense.

    No, he just didn't get to make his stump speech in court.

    stop giving this guy the attention he's after
