Tim Eyman has been forced to sell his Mukilteo home as financial restitution for more than $5.6 million in penalties and legal fees after a Thurston County judge’s finding that the political activist failed to report campaign contributions to the Public Disclosure Commission.

“The fact that [Ferguson] would gloat today in a press release about how I lost my home. I’ve lost every penny I’ve ever earned in my lifetime,” Eyman told KIRO Newsradio’s Dori Monson.

“He’s really furious that throughout this entire process, I’ve continued to say there’s absolutely no violation whatsoever of the law.”

“That in every instance, we’re dealing with people that voluntarily provided me money so that I could survive this onslaught from the attorney general, and that they somehow thought that I needed to report that because those were campaign contributions.”

“Well, when a check is made payable to Tim Eyman’s legal defense fund, that is not a campaign contribution. That’s for me to be able to fight back against this injustice.”

Monson asked Eyman why he continues to be an anti-tax activist, despite having lost his home, wife, and estate in legal penalties.

“It’s what I was born to do,” Eyman replied.

“I wake up every day saying, ‘how can I make a difference?’ At this point, it’s not like you have a whole lot of choice in the matter. It’s not like I can go sell real estate for a living, Bob Ferguson has made it impossible to earn a living doing anything else. So even if I wanted to switch professions, I really can’t.”

“The ultimate revenge is my continued political activism.”
