John Phillips [Exotic’s lawyer] has received my medical records from FMC Fort Worth and my PSA count came back very high for prostate cancer,” he wrote.

“The prison has approved testing to verify what stage it is in. My body is tired, I have lost a tremendous amount of weight, the mouth sores are out of control, I throw up more than I eat,” Joe continued.

He then asked for support from President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in helping him get released from prison, where he is currently serving a 22 year sentence for trying to pay an assassin $3,000 to kill Carole Baskin.

“I don’t want anyone’s pity, what I need is when John Phillips gets the evidence he is working on, I need the world to help him get President Biden, VP Harris and the Attorney General to listen to the evidence and see that it’s not just city cops out of control with corruption, but his very own Department of Justice and make this right and sign that pardon that Trump left behind so I can go home and get proper medical care and proper food,” he continued.

Joe had been hopeful for a pardon from Donald Trump when he was in office, but was not named on the list of pardons the former President gave when he left office. He also reached out to Kim Kardashian in order to secure a pardon.
