URGENT! TAKE ACTION!

Mike Lambrix of Florida is scheduled to be executed Thursday, October 5th at
6:00PM. He has been on
Death Row for 33 years.

Please contact Florida Gov. Rick Scott and ask him to halt the execution of
Michael Lambrix and
grant a new clemency hearing. Phone: 850-488-7146 (Mon-Fri 8am-5pm ET) or
***@eog.myflorida.com

* Mike’s only clemency hearing was 30 years ago
* Mike has a case for innocence and maintains he acted in self-defense
* He twice refused offers to plead guilty in exchange for a prison sentence -
had he done so he
would have been freed years ago
* Key witness testimony has now been tainted or recanted
* The purpose of a Clemency Board is to intervene in cases like this where
the courts are
restricted due to “procedural bar” on allowing a hearing on his evidence of
self-defense and
other late discovered evidence of innocence
* His jury votes for death were not unanimous. This sentencing scheme has
since been ruled
unconstitutional and is now unlawful
* Mike is an honorably discharged, disabled Army veteran.


Governor Rick Scott
The Capitol
400 S. Monroe St.
Tallahassee, FL 32399
Phone: 850-488-7146 (Mon-Fri 8am-5pm ET)
Email: ***@eog.myflorida.com

When you call or write, please be sure to give your name and where you live. If
you are not
a Floridian, provide a connection (i.e., visit Florida, have friends/family
there, want to move
there someday, etc). The staffer answering phones will be very nice and
courteous. They won't
question or challenge you. They simply record the issues that people are
calling for and make a
tally to give to the Governor.

That's why it is so important for your view to be known. You can simply say:
"Please urge Governor
Scott to halt the execution of Michael Lambrix and grant him a new clemency
hearing." If you like
you can add any of the reasons listed above.

Please share this message with others. Only with your help can the work be done
and progress made.
