Re: Statement re Democratic National Committee
Dear Mr Robinson:
We are writing on behalf of our client, the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
A post by coffee260 on FreeRepublic.com today states that this morning, on the Quinn & Rose show on XM, co-host Quin stated that the DNC chairman, Gov. Howard Dean had called Gov Kathleen Sebelius (D-Kans) around 5:00am on morning after a tornado destroyed the town of Greensburg, Kansas and discussed with here what to say about the tornado and how to blame the war in Iraq and the Bush administration on a slow response to the aftermath.
The statement was made by Mr Quinn, repeated on FreeRepublic, is demonstrably, unequivocally and absolutely false. Gov Dean had no such conversation with Gov Sebelius, ever.
No effort was made by FreeRepublic to contact anyone at the DNC for comment or to check the accuracy of these statements before they were published. FreeRepublic not only repeated this statement, but further stressed that Quinns source was extremely reliable and in a position that would give him direct knowledge of these revelations.
The statements quoted above are false and defamatory, are libelous and slanderous and clearly threaten to interfere with the DNCs operations and ability to solicit support and raise funds by predjuding the organization in the eyes of the Democratic Party supporters and the public. For these reasons, we demand that FreeRepublic immediately cease and desist from Further dissemination of the above quoted statements or any statements similar in substance and immediately post a retraction of these statements in a location on its web pages at least as prominent as that on which the original story appeared.
Please let us know by noon, May 11, 2007, whether you intend to comply with these requests.
Thanks for your time and immediate attention to this important matter.
Joseph E Sandler
DNC is apparently stupider than we thought.
God, how I hate lawyers...especially soulless ones who are puppets of the DNC...
Your fifteen minutes have started...
Alrighty then! Lets start issuing subpoenas!
BTW, what language is this? : predjuding
The Dems doing what they do best, threaten people.
Ok, maybe we got the time wrong?
I wonder if they are calling on XM and Quin and Rose to cease and desist. This is an attempt to intimidate, and by intimidation limit information and debate on Democrats’ activities. Typical of the DNC. Why don’t they have Dean and Sebelius denying the phone call?
I don’t buy the Sebelius conspiracy. She’s said this in the past. (If we have a disaster, blah blah blah). I knew it was going to come out as soon as the scope of the disaster was revealed.
“No effort was made by FreeRepublic to contact anyone at the DNC for comment or to check the accuracy of these statements before they were published”
That’s probably because the DNC are a bunch of thieving, lying sumbitches.
Ping! Your ears should be burning right now.
also....LIMBAUGH yesterday stated that he expected that the DNC had contacted Gov Sebelius about “talking points”. Limbaugh must have also been ordered to stop lying about the Democratics too.....I am sure he will comply.....I am sure FreeRepublic will comply.
So....Did Quinn and Rose get a similar C&D letter, hmmmmmm?
Methinks they protest too much. Hmmmm. That means we’re on to something.
Thw walls have ears and eyes...........I’m quite surprised they can read.......
Maybe because we are not publishers?
