Seattle Weekly Follows Jacobson Suit

Looks like the lawsuit filed by Kootenai County GOP CC Chairwoman Tina Jacobson has grown legs. The Seattle Weekly reports: "This is a story that is embarrassing to a Republican Party chair in Idaho, and you have her to thank for it. She apparently feels someone has accused her of a crime - taking $10,000 and hiding it on "her person." This was said in a Spokane newspaper column called Huckleberries Online - not by the columnist, but by an anonymous commenter. The claim was later removed, and might have since been forgotten. But Kootenai County GOP Central Committee Chair Tina Jacobson has now filed a lawsuit to force the newspaper to identity the commenter, turning a little story into a bigger one. As a commenter says now that the bigger story has developed, 'Cool... this should be fun to watch...'/Rick Anderson, Seattle Weekly. More here.

DFO: Papers all over the state and USA Today also have reported on this lawsuit & the subpoena filed on behalf of Jacobson in an attempt to find the identity of three Huckleberries Online commenters.
