Mo Brooks campaign co-chair says process server has been identified, vows to pursue legal avenues against server for violation of trespassing statute
Sunday, Martha Brooks, wife of U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), was served papers giving notice that Mo Brooks was being sued by his colleague U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) for his alleged role in the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill.
The process server has received widespread media attention, with Brooks, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama’s 2022 election, claiming the service violated Alabama’s trespassing laws.
During an interview with “The Jeff Poor Show” on Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5, the Brooks campaign’s co-chair Stan Mcdonald said legal options would be pursued against the individual, as he recounted the incident.
“Yes, it will be pursued,” Mcdonald said. “But, as your listeners probably know, Mo Brooks is a defendant in an Eric Swalwell lawsuit. Swalwell is the Democrat House member from California who was having an affair with a Communist Chinese spy. And so, he is suing Donald Trump, Sr., Donald Trump, Jr., Rudy Giuliani and Mo Brooks. Those are your defendants. So, a lot of times, you know, you can best be known by who your enemies are. And Swalwell — he has targeted those four people as his top people. And the other defendants received service of process — just waived and made it easy. Mo Brooks has been on record and said, look, if you’re going sue me in such a frivolous, politically charged, nonsensical lawsuit, then I’m not going to do your job for you.”
“So these poor guys have ran around for months making a political show out of it,” Mcdonald continued. “You could have easily served Mo Brooks. You could have easily served many, many times. But Martha Brooks was coming home from church Sunday morning. She pulls into her garage, and the garage is attached to the home. It is part of the home. And you could see on video, even though Swalwell’s lawyers denied it, so they’re now caught in a lie — you can see on video where the guy pulls in behind Martha as she’s getting home from church and runs in the garage and is in there for 14 seconds. He got right up on her window, scared the daylights out of her. She’s a grandmother of 10. [He] drops the paperwork, and she starts screaming at him, telling him, ‘Get out, get out, get out.’ And you saw where she chased him out into the parking lot. It’s on video. She tried to get his tag, but I’m not sure she got that.”
Mcdonald also revealed the campaign was aware of who the individual is, who he identified as being from Georgia.
“We know who he is now,” he added. “I can say it now. We know who he is. We didn’t know it yesterday, I don’t think. … Now we know how to prosecute. So, he’s from Georgia. We know that much.”
Mcdonald told FM Talk 106.5 those behind the Swalwell effort tried to get a process server from Cullman, who called the Brooks team and said she was a big supporter of the congressman. She offered to bring the paperwork and wanted to get a photograph with Brooks while serving the notice, but Brooks turned down the offer.
