Justin and Ron:
Well, so much for worrying about a blog comment. All those legal fees and the guy wasn't even close to winning. Take a look at the Donna Edwards election in Maryland...It's proof of what happens when y'all sit down and work with bloggers with a bit more respect.
Of course, when the real goal here is billable hours you can always count on a lawyer to move ahead on a baseless complaint -- You guys should have told the candidate to focus on, say, running for the position he coveted.
