Libertarian Chairman to Challenge REAL ID in Court Wednesday

Libertarian Chairman to Challenge REAL ID in Court Wednesday

September 6, 2011

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA – The State of Florida will be facing a legal challenge to the new driver’s license requirements as mandated by the Department of Homeland Security under the REAL ID Act.  Libertarian Party of Florida Chairman and syndicated radio talk host Adrian Wyllie was cited for driving without a license, and will argue that the new DL requirements force citizens to waive their Fourth Amendment rights in order to be granted the “privilege” of driving.

Wyllie surrendered his driver’s license on May 17, 2011, on the grounds that he refused to provide the personal documents required by REAL ID without a warrant.   Wyllie then called several law enforcement agencies to report he was driving without a license.  Despite his efforts, police ignored the violation.

That was until July 15, when Wyllie issued a challenge to Pinellas County Sheriff Jim Coats on his radio program to “Man up and pull me over.”  Within four hours, Wyllie’s vehicle was stopped by Pinellas deputies and he was ticketed.

“This case is a first step in nullifying REAL ID, and determining whether the Fourth Amendment is still applicable in America,” said Wyllie.

One of the components of the REAL ID Act is that States must acquire digital facial image captures which are compatible with facial recognition software, and upload them to a national database.  Wyllie says he has subpoenaed the administrator of the PCSO’s facial recognition network, and will dig deep into how driver’s license data is being used for covert surveillance of Floridians.  “We will reveal how the new data and facial recognition images collected are being unlawfully used by law enforcement,” said Wyllie.

The Florida legislature is also taking a fresh look at REAL ID. Florida Rep. Larry Ahern (R – St. Petersburg) has introduced HB 109, which would repeal virtually all the provisions of REAL ID that were implemented as part of the driver’s licensing process.

The trial will be held at the Pinellas County Criminal Court Complex, Courtroom 19, at 14250 49th Street North in Clearwater on Wednesday, September 7 at 5:30pm.    The courtroom is open to the public and the media.

  1. I was always under the impression that socializing Land equally across the entire spectrum of humanity was the only way for each of us to have True Liberty which opens the door to Pure Democracy and a Pure Capitalistic Marketplace where we each have an equal footing to “play the game”. There is an easy way to accomplish this -)

  2. Way to go, Adrian! Thanks for fighting for freedom! I pray God blesses and protects you and that you prevail against the surveillance State.
