Gus: Commish Tired Of HBO ‘Character Assassination’

Dan of the County: I can’t imagine that the public feels it is within the rights of one public officer to tell them (members of the public) how they can converse with another elected official,” English wrote, adding, “I believe it is poor public policy.”

More Info: Gus Johnson said the commission was tired of the “character assassination” on the blog. Johnson also said that The Spokesman-Review was allowing the publication of “hurtful” actions against him on its Web site. “I feel it’s unfair and actually revengeful,” Johnson said in an interview Tuesday, his first since his defeat. “No human should have to go through that.”

DFO: Character assassination? None of the fun began here until Gus had been pouting two days after his election loss and refused to talk to the press. He and Katie need to ap-hollow-gize for an abuse of power in censoring the press.
