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
P.S. - “Duck the F.N.C.”
I never saw that thread. Looks like I missed out on a fun thread. Anything Howierd Deaniac is on, has to be a good one. LOL
G-d forbid the public, exercising free speech, should interfere with the almighty DNC’s “operations”.
Times like these it is necessary! ;0)
—Are you sure that you did not hear any rumors about Joseph E Sandler and Howard Dean having sexual relations with DEAD ANIMALS.—
Did you mean to say “Howard Dean had SEXUAL RELATIONS with JIM TRAFICANT’s hair” ?...
Funny how they misspelled their own law firm’s name.
Public Figures= Free Game.
We all know it is true and these lawyers are proving that Dean called the gov to lie about the Nat’l Guard. Why else would they make such a big deal out of it? It’s not like we said they knew about terrorists flying into the WTC.
What was your thread about that was pulled?
Are you sure it wasn’t signed by “ADAM Sandler”?
“I believe that an investigation needs to be launched to determine if this call took place.”
Everyone here would agree, but ... is there even ONE Republican Congressperson with the jinglies to demand it?
And we all know how well that worked out, don't we?
“Power Punch”, Legal Times (April 26, 2004): A feature on the feature on the Republican National Committees FEC complaint charging the Kerry campaign of conspiring with 527 political groups. Joseph Sandler is quoted regarding the complaint: We regard this as an effort to misuse the law to muzzle criticism of the Bush administration and to intimidate the groups and their donors.

Go ahead and read the thread now
Couldn’t have been, Adam Sandler is a good guy, the DNC mouthpieces who wrote the cease and desist are not.
I know a man that was married to my sisters brothers cousin that heard that some men by the name of Dean and Sandler enjoyed clubbing baby seals but he never said nuttin about having sex with them.
