Melissa Klein, the owner of the bakery that refused to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding ceremony, has revealed that the state of Oregon seized all of her bank accounts weeks before she planned to pay the settlement from the suit brought against her by the couple.

According to Fox News, Klein and her husband were hit with a penalty of over $135,000 in July payable to the lesbian couple who cited “emotional suffering” for the mom-and-pop bakers holding to their Christian beliefs. The state, ignoring the couple’s religious liberty, agreed and said the small business, Sweet Cakes by Melissa, couldn’t discriminate against the rights of LGBT customers.
