Legalized theft by the government, also known as civil forfeiture must not be allowed. Cooperating with federal agencies in any way for civil forfeiture will be forbidden. I will propose legislation to make it so property can only be forfeited after a guilty verdict or guilty plea on a felony. Restore justice to those not convicted.
Kelo v. City of New London is the worst Supreme Court decision of my lifetime. Eminent domain should NEVER be used to take property from anybody other than for public use, and then only after compensation of one and a half times the value of the property and the costs to move. Give property justice to ALL.
