In responding to another commenter at Coeur d'Alene Press online re: "Kennedy's legal fees soar to $50,000," Mary Souza of OpenCdA.com said that targetting Kennedy as a defendant wasn't "optional" or "personal." Writes Mary: "Mike Kennedy was only named in the lawsuit because the Idaho Election law REQUIRES (her shouting capitals not mine) that the incumbent be named." She set up that comment by pointing out that Brannon has no money and that he was fired from his position as local director of Habitat for Humanity "less than an hour before the televised candidate forum where he was to debate Mr. Kennedy." She said the firing looked "even more political when Habitat then received a grant from the city a short time later." (See 2:55 comment here)
Question: Would you take it as "personal" if someone brought a frivolous suit against you that cost you $50,000?
