Regan Warns Reagan Repub Leader

I received a copy of the Kootenai Weekly Conservative wherein you state: " On behalf of the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans, I am writing to report the commission of various crimes in violation of both federal and state law including mail fraud, voter fraud, identity theft, criminal conspiracy, campaign reporting violations and witness intimidation. These violations appear to be a criminal conspiracy devising a scheme to defraud the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans, its members and the voters of Kootenai County, Idaho utilizing the U.S. Mail." The problem is that in this country people are innocent until PROVEN guilty, therefore any suspected legal action is just that "suspected" until proven otherwise. You would have been wise to characterized the event as "possible commission of various crimes" rather that the unqualified declarative. As such you have now potentially exposed KCRR to civil action should your assertions be themselves proven false. I appreciate the offensive nature of the mailer but that does not grant license to reply in kind, or worse. (SR file photo, of Brent Regan)

Question: Sound advice?
