Republican Party leader Tina Jacobson knows that formerly anonymous blog commenter, almostinnocentbystander, is actually Linda Cook, who unmasked herself last week following a judge’s order that would have resulted in the unveiling.

Press readers think Jacobson should continue on with the lawsuit that alleges Cook defamed Jacobson online when, as almostinnocentbystander, she commented on a Spokesman-Review blog that funds were missing from the county GOP central committee’s coffers, and insinuated the money may be “stuffed inside Tina’s blouse.”

When asked if they think Jacobson should drop the lawsuit, here’s how Press readers responded:

“No” - 468 voters - 62 percent

“Yes” - 280 voters - 38 percent

    Even the most humor-challenged could see that Ms. Cook asked the question tongue-in-cheek. Do you think maybe TJ is not cut out to be in the public eye? Huh?

    LMYCDA.........................I have a hunch you can't get blood out of a turnip.

    It's a shame LMYCDA that liberals such as yourself, have no problem supporting people who slander and harm others, jes' so long as it's not you!

    Every one of us has had completely false things said about us. The problem is, people believe false information, repeat it, and the harm can never be repaired.

    Slander is covered by most home owner policies. I doubt Miss Cook is a homeowner...

    I hope Jacobsen gets a judgement against Cook. Somehow I doubt Jacobsen will ever receive any compensation for the harm Miss Cook has done to her.

    A wise judge would sentence Cook to stand on a street corner, holding a sign which says "I am a gossip, and slanderer who causes harm to others."

    Insead of admitting Cook harmed Jacobsen, Cook tried to spin it into something cute in her letter about the 1960's.

    Frivilous? I don't think so. This kind of slandering and gossip needs to stop.

    Please invite Cook to join the local democat party. She'll fit in beautifully.

    Frivolous lawsuits! Why not Tina! Get your name out there in the public more! Does it change your image to half of the public -nah. Does it make you a BETTER representative of all Republican? Nah...makes you represent status quo.

    I personally laugh whenever I hear or read your name! There I go now!

    I'm sure that the attorneys are singing the same song... "If you got the money honey, we've got the time!"

    It's the American Way!
