Taking (at least part of) the day off
I’ve been publicly accused of serial harassment. J. Patrick Frey, a DDA from California, has made the public claims that I am responsible for “serial harassment” and that I was sent a cease and desist letter by my victim. I IMMEDIATELY AND WITHOUT RESERVATION asked him to release proof of these accusations. I gave permission for any documents to be released, waving any claim to privacy. I have denied that any of it is true.
No evidence has been offered. And Frey claims he hasn’t seen the emails or the letter. He won’t release the name of my supposed victim. He is suggesting that his reason for not releasing the name or the emails is that it would re-escalate the situation, forcing the victims to relive my assaults on them. Which of course is suggestive that these assaults took place to begin with — something he can’t and won’t prove. Because it never happened — at least, not with my involvement.
And yet he keeps making public the accusations.
He has now added to those false allegations by suggesting that I “edited” my list of email recipients since Nov of last year (which I did not) to excise the name of my supposed victims.
All of which has put me in the awkward position of having to try to prove a negative. None of my questions have been answered. Meanwhile, the accusations just hang there. As I’m sure they are supposed to do.
But I’m not one to be bullied by a guy who likes to use his prosecutorial persona as an online weapon. So I am going to spend the day looking into my options. Because if I don’t, I’m only delaying (as others have noted) the inevitable next instance of such behavior aimed at me. And I’ll listen to any advice from any of you. I’m particularly interested to know if the header info on emails can be faked. And if it can, would a prosecutor know how to do such things, or have at his disposal those who might? At this point, I’d put nothing past this guy. To save his “honor,” he’ll do or say anything, and it doesn’t seem to matter to him at all who gets hurt by it.
As I’m doing all this, please remember that your government will spend an additional $72 billion today. And that those $6 billion in cuts we’re supposed to be clapping House leadership on the back for? Are largely symbolic, and are being used by the GOP to burnish its optics, even as their feckless leadership moves us ever closer to financial disaster.
