Candidate Calls Blogger's Claims," Libelous"
A former head of the La Crosse county Republican party is facing claims of libel from a pair of candidates. Mike Krsiean (kri-zeen), running for congress in Wisconsin's third congressional district, and Robert Taylor, running for US senate, call Chris Muller's claims on his couleeconservatives.com blog, "amazing" and "baseless." Muller recently rhetorically mused on whether Krsiean and Taylor had appropriately filed campaign finance reports and whether some of their activities might be supported by the democratic party, the International Monetary Fund or MoveOn.org. Krsiean, in turn, has quickly responded with threats of a lawsuit and by suggesting that Muller is acting unethically.
