Kay Hagan Files Defamation Suit

According to just about everyone in the free world Elizabeth Dole crossed the line with her "Godless" ad attacking Kay Hagan.

Kay is fighting back. She has not only released a strong ad, but plans to fight back in court.

GREENSBORO, NC- Kay Hagan filed a lawsuit against Elizabeth Dole and the Elizabeth Dole Committee, Inc., after Dole declined to remove her new television ad, described by North Carolina newspapers as "indecent," a "gross misrepresentation," "dishonest," and "beyond the bounds of acceptable political disagreement."

"Like her time in the U.S. Senate, Elizabeth Dole has made her choices here, and that's her decision," said Hagan Campaign Communications Director Colleen Flanagan said. "But it's equally our decision not to allow someone to slander Kay Hagan, impugn her character, her convictions and her faith, without any consequences. Elizabeth Dole would love nothing more than to distract from the issues and her record for the last 5 days of the campaign. In filing this suit, we've made clear that these kind of despicable tactics will not be tolerated, and our campaign is moving forward with the most important task at hand: defeating Elizabeth Dole, and giving North Carolina's families a voice in the U.S. Senate that they've been sorely missing."

Uh, Oh! It's looking like Liddy's stepped in a big ol' steaming pile 'o poo.

Einstein was talking about Liddy's campaign when he wrote

He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice.

End The Lies

Good for Hagan. She should not back down if she wins. It's time to end the lies.

Copy of the Letter

The fact that she sent the Cease and Desist Letter to Dole's Washington DC is quite possibly one of the most funny and effective moves I have seen in a long time.

I'm glad Kay is moving forward with all this. Dole needs to stop lying.

Hagan fights back

I just posted a blog entry with a link to the new ad.

Damn straight.

As she damn well should. This isn't protected political speech on Dole's part, but libel. And libel is against the law for reason.

Just saw the rebuttal ad on Hardball

Hagan takes Dole to task for questioning her faith. Way to go Kay!!!

Love the phrase "rue the day"

I have always loved it when people use that phrase. I don't know why, just do.

Wonkette has it front paged

Terrific ad and I bet it has folks cheering when they see it!!!!

Wonkette wins.

Such a great take on the entire ordeal.

Liddy's got a SECOND ad up

Hillary coming to NC for Kay Hagan?

This is from an email I just got from the GASP list (Girlfriends Appalled by Sarah Palin). I hope it works out, but think the price tag a wee steep:

MESSAGE FROM FRIEND OF GASP!, TOM HENDRICKSON: Save The Date!! Senator Hillary Clinton to attend a Special Event for Kay Hagan. Sunday, November 2nd in Raleigh, NC. We have just received tentative confirmation that Senator Hillary Clinton will come back to North Carolina to attend a final fundraiser on behalf of Kay Hagan and the DSCC on Sunday, November 2nd in Raleigh. Time and location and event details are being finalized. We expect that supporters will be asked to contribute $1,000 to attend and Hosts will be asked to give or raise $10,000. To get involved, please call Tom (919-880-1367) or send him an email at Tom@LookoutNC.com.

Just got a robocall from Liddy

Supposedly if you press 1, you can hear Kay denying that she knows anything about the godless america pac. The recording goes on to gripe about liberals and taking the god out of the Pledge of Allegiance. I hope Kay sues the pantsuit right off of her.
