Posted on 08/05/2004 12:38:53 PM PDT by hinterlander
Lawyers for the DNC and Kerry-Edwards sent this letter to television station managers, claiming the Swift Boat Veterans For Truth ad is "false" and "libelous." Click here for the full letter (can't be pasted into Free Republic window).
Limbaugh read from this at the close of his show today.
Thanks, apparently I'm too stupid to get it to work.
So much for the Democrats whining about the GOP stifling dissent and the truth .
That having been said, it is a very ... "nuanced" letter. LOL! (Kerry is SOOO screwed!)
Interesting that nowhere in the letter does it say that a lawsuit for libel and/or slander is being initiated by the Kerry campaign.
Can anyone refute the claims in this letter?
Are we living in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia?
Anyone trying to prevent any ad from being aired is a tyrant.
Second, they talk about the Doc that signed the card ... will they release the cards and other documentation to prove that this doctor had nothing to do with the treatment? I see nothing in the letter denying the doctor rendered aid, only that there is no paper trail. Which is it?
Isn't one sailor that did serve on Kerry's boat a SBVfT member?
Looks like scare tactics without substance to me.
My understanding is that these men did serve with Kerry, just not under him. They were on the other 2 swift boats in his group. And the nonsense about the Doctor is transparant ("He did not sign the ..." blah, blah, blah)
Uh oh, looks like this ones sproutin legs and is fixin to run a marathon.
Yes, I can. The letter claims the ad is libelous.
In fact, it's would be IMPOSSIBLE to win a libel claim about just about anything said about a high profile politician. Any lawyer will tell you don't even bother with a libel suit if a person is a public figure....anything goes.
You can serve with someone and not be on their boat. The boats traveled in tandem with other boats. When not on the boats, they were together.
Excellent any lawyer types here on FR please feel free to cal lthe DNC and let them know the law.
They showed each man's before and present-day image.... the before being a photo taken standing in a group with Kerry.
Is that true?
