Dear Ms. Schuldt:
Recently you have been publishing on the internet and other places a series of defamatory statements about State Senator Tom Reynolds. You are accusing Mr. Reynolds of using his campaign fund for personal utility bills. At the same time, you acknowledge and are well aware that Tom Reynolds has his campaign office on the same property as his home, which is equipped with those items to run his campaign including printing presses. As such, Mr. Reynolds is required under the Election law to charge his campaign fund for his expenses and take the expenses either as a personal contribution or take a cash reimbursement.
You are a professional journalist and should know enough not to publish false statements without checking your facts and making sure the facts are correct. In your case you are obviously doing this for the purpose of trying to defeat Mr. Reynolds in the upcoming election.
Unless a retraction is published on the Story Hill Website and in any other posted or published location of your statements, Mr. Reynolds will sue you and the owner of the website for libel and slander. Because your actions are obviously being taken with a reckless disregard of the truth and a reckless intent to harm him in the upcoming election, punitive damages will also be sought.
When you comply with the retraction(s) please notify me at once by furnishing me with a copy of the same via fax at (414) 276-0731 if you do not publish the retraction within seven days of the date of this letter a lawsuit will be started.
Very truly yours,
PETRIE & STOCKINGS.C.
