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.

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.
It will be the cover up that gets them.
I heard he's a pedophile. Not saying it's true, but the NYSlimes, NPR and the WaComPost should look into it.
What ever became of this?? Did Jim R. tell them to SHOVE IT?
For some reason, I always think of your screen name in capital letters. :^)
Thank you for all your efforts, to keep us updated.
