St. Louis, MO: Pro-life activist turned congressional candidate Mark Houck will join the Eagle Council 52 program this weekend in St. Louis. Houck became a headline name last fall when the FBI dragged him out of his home at gunpoint in front of his wife and children. The DOJ’s federal case against him for violating the FACE Act fell flat in front of a jury, who acquitted him of the charges.
“We are thrilled to honor Mark and hear from him on Friday,” said Phyllis Schlafly Eagles President Ed Martin. “He has an incredible story, not only of longstanding activism for the cause of life, but of fighting back against Big Government and winning!
“The corrupt FBI leadership dragged him from his home, guns drawn, and the corrupt DOJ slapped him with federal charges when their attempt at local court fell through. His story is one that calls into question not only the politically motivated nature of our weaponized federal agencies, but even their anti-religious work as well. I look forward to honoring Mark this weekend with the Phyllis Schlafly Eagle Award and hearing from him how he’s bringing oversight back to D.C. in his run for Congress and what we can do from our perches of grassroots activism!”
Mark Houck and his wife and family will join Eagle Council 52, where he will be honored on Friday at the Save the American Family dinner program with the prestigious Eagle Award.
