106. Interesting response I got to this email - and since I was the named addressee, I guess I can post
The whole response here.
I'm responding to her underground blog and asking the forum director to remove the content because at this point she is not being very truthful and it is slander, defamatory, and offensive. She will be getting contacted by my attorney.
You should get the other side of the story before you base judgment on me. This law abiding citizen was so angry that I was republican that she lost all bearing and chased and pursued me up the street. If you want to talk about the facts I'm more than open to it and would prefer to do it rather than trying to defend myself with emails.
I'm appalled at the so called law abiding citizen you reference who was following me up the block after she ripped up my door knocker and then began to ripping the other door knockers off of the other doors and then thinks an assault occurs when I place myself between the next door and her attempting to rip it down.
As I said I'm responding to the underground website and will put the facts out there.
Everyone should not be so dam angry with anyone that calls him or herself a Republican and that is what happened here. She was so angry that I was a republican that she thought that she could just go ahead and rip down door knockers from private residences. Sounds like the deranged liberals.
If anyone that is out there on that website that wants to know the truth about today's events I'm more than open to sitting down with them and discussing it in person.
I'm a neighbor who is out there trying to bring a change to the existing representative and there is no reason why I should be getting harassed by some angry person about National politics where as I'm running for local office. It's ridiculous. If you donít agree with someone you should just disagree but to be disrespectful and behave the way she did is out of line for anyone. I have been out in the district since Memorial Day and it's every weekend. If I had anger problems it would have come out a long time ago when I started doing this. I have never come across this type of behavior in over five months. So who is the issue, the angry women who hates Republicans? I'm running as a Republican in a 99.5% Democrat district my job is hard enough let alone dealing with someone that is just upset with a party and finds it acceptable to rip up things that are being hung on other neighbor doors.
As for the incident it's nice to have video and voice recording on cell phones and doing this type of work you need to have some type of supportive materials to back up any claims, so we shouldn't jump to conclusion and just assume the Republican has anger issues. If you knew me you would know that I'm someone that is just trying to give my community a choice.
Again I am available and I apologize if I might be coming off a little upset but when you see this behavior it's upsetting and makes you second guess what you are trying to do for your community.
I have chased drug dealers off my block, I have chased unruly PHA tenants from PHA homes on my block, I have taken on dice games on my block for my neighbors, chased down and caught two kids trying to set fire to my neighbor's house, and be to be told to get out of her neighborhood is upsetting.
You can meet my neighbors and they can tell you the type of person I am and can tell you what I have done for them while being on the block. Here from the people that know me and see me everyday doing what I'm doing.
Get the true facts.

My response to him is:
Slander and defamation don't apply to public figures. Running for office makes you one of those and your lawyer will advise you of that fact.
Why did you not state on your literature that you were Repblican?
If you truly were intending to supply a choice for your neighbors, why not let them know what they were getting from the outset? Why not engage in a conversation with her, tell her your platform, try to win her vote? Because you wrote HER off when you saw her sticker. If you had been interested in swaying her vote in this local election, as you claim was your intent with your hangers, to provide an alternative, why would you dismiss her so handily that she would have to "chase you" to get the information? Not buying that one. And a wise man once said "All politics are local." <-- Tip O'Neill
If you touched her, you assaulted her. Period. I never said what she did was right or wrong, I said what you did in touching her was wrong.
So, are you saying that you have video? If so, post it. Youtube is available and you can send the link. If you have evidence that it didn't happen the way she said it did, then put it to rest by sharing that now. Prove her wrong if you can.
