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.

After reading this I went to see what the DUmmies are saying about it. I could find nothing. Odd, usually they would be braying like jackasses over something like this.
There is a thread about the C&D letter that outlines the story. The black-hole-stupid morons are hoping the DNC will crush FR for discussing the story.....yes, the same one they are discussing.
Morning, coffee. How does it feel to in the center of a maelstrom? ;-)
Jim Quinn mentioned Free Republic this morning on his show. One thing ya gotta say about Jim....he smeared the rats face in it again this morning.
Dear DNC - Come and get some.
I think that Dean should authorize the phone company to release some phone records. So should the guv. If no calls were made at 5am, they should be able to easily prove that.
GOVERNOR ASKED TO RELEASE PHONE RECORDS — http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1833389/posts
So sue me Howie. Or, if you prefer to settle this like men, bring it on.
Under the legal definition of the term, anyone who places any statement or other material in the public domain, or otherwise widely disseminates it, is indeed a publisher.
I am now afraid of offending the DNC./sarcasm//
Can I sue?
Anyone have an update on the DNC’s threat?
Thanks Doug, for being so faithful and long suffering on this cause. I seriously doubt that the Governor or Howard Dean would ever submit their phone records though. You must remember, this party is not interested in truth, the security of the nation, or stopping it’s enemies. They only lust for power, greed and control. Right now I can imagine Dean dreaming up a diversion right now. He may be praying to Satan, for an earthquake, or a tsunami, or a terrorist attack so he can draw his attention away from this. IMHO, the who pretext for the DemocRATS enabling our enemies is they WANT another major attack, desire hundreds, thousands, perhaps millions to be killed so they can blame Bush. After all, we are just pawns, or cannon fodder for them
Peace, and strength, My Faithful Laborer
Should Pitt also have been sued over the "business hours"?
I heard that Howard was doing lines off an intern’s leg while talking on the phone.
Thats how I heard it.
