Frank Knotts is a blogger over at DelawareRight — he previously blogged at DelawarePolitics until he was largely ostracized from there. I don’t agree with Frank over much (and have never met him, either), but he’s been the target of some really despicable actions by members of his party who don’t much like what he has to say about them, their views or political actions. Today, I am calling attention to the fact that 3 Sussex GOP members have decided to sue Frank — a blogger — for defamation. Just go here to see the letter. But also see the rest of his post — they’ve contacted his employer, they’ve called the police on him and pretty much tried to harrass him out of his own viewpoint on his party’s and his party’s members’ actions. This is completely despicable — rather than engage in more free speech, the parties suing — Vincent Calabro, Lacey Lafferty and Don Ayotte — are trying to bully Frank Knotts into shutting up and falling in line. From where I sit, this one action is more than enough reason for all three of these people to never be trusted with either public office or party leadership. I’m calling your attention to this because we should all see how folks on the right wing fringe operate — you will not criticize us or we will bully you. Which isn’t a principle that they got from Leadership 101. So I’m standing with Frank here and hope you will too.
