IDAHO – The politician in question is Tina Jacobson, chair of the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee, who has launched a lawsuit against a commenter who identified themselves as “Almost Innocent Bystander” following a couple of comments made on a February 14, 2012, blogpost on the website for the Idaho Spokesman-Review newspaper. The comments thread accompanying a post which featured a photograph of Jacobson alongside other local Republican figures, was disrupted by Almost Innocent Bystander’s seemingly-out-of-nowhere comment that $10,000 allegedly missing from the Central Committee’s funds could be found “stuffed inside Tina’s blouse,” with a second comment by the user going on to outright accuse her of embezzlement. The offending comments – and, indeed, the entire post that spawned them – were quickly deleted by the paper, with Almost Innocent Bystander banned from the site as a result (He/She emailed the newspaper to renounce the earlier comments, writing that they “apologize for and retract my derogatory and unsubstantiated commentary regarding Tina Jacobson”), but that wasn’t enough of a response for Jacobson or her attorney, Matthew Andersen.”In Idaho, being called a thief is a per se libelous statement,” Andersen told Businessweek, underlining the point by adding “She had been called a thief.” There’s just one problem with this lawsuit: Neither Jacobson nor Andersen knows what Almost Innocent Bystander actually is. An earlier appeal to the Spokesman-Review to release the commenter’s name and details was met with a firm refusal, which has brought us to the current state of the lawsuit: A disputed subpoena that, if allowed, would force the paper to release the details of the commenter alongside two other anonymous commenters, “Phaedrus” and “OutofStatertater,” who challenged the accusations in the original, deleted, thread.
You can sue internet trolls? Holy shit. Talk about a game changer. Getcha popcorn and checkbooks ready Blackdude, tr1d3nt and CANCEL PHILLY SITE. I’m coming in to steal the food off your ugly kid’s plate and castrate your hard earned cubicle monkey cash.
And this bitch is suing for 10K just because someone jokingly accused her of stealing some cash and putting it in her tits. They even deleted the comments and the people called/emailed in to apologize. That’s it? This toots is gonna get 10K for that? Small peanuts. Wanna talk some defamation of character? Pretty sure on here I’ve been accused of anally raping a goat while going down on my mother and getting fisted by my father. Good God I’m going to be a millionaire after the clouds clear. Lets just take a look at what was said about me after I posted a picture of myself on the shitter looking in the mirror earlier this week:

No idea who this “Smitty” cunt face is, but this is the least fumy thing I have ever read in my life
Insinuating that I’m an unfunny homosexual fag job cunt face prostitute douchebag that should rub feces on my face to hide my ugliness? I can handle that. What I can’t deal with is some assface saying that I make Pres look like the Sexiest Man Alive. Fuck that noise to high heaven. I may not be an Adonis, but goddammit at least I look better than the Quasimodo of Boston. The discussion should end when you see my nonexistent neckfat and a nose that doesn’t hit the steering wheel while driving. I can and will sue your dick off 4guys1barstool. Proof is in the pudding.
One of these men straight up makes titties wet while the other illustrates what Mark Zuckerberg would look like if he was on a first class train to diabetes. Game, set, match: Smitty.
