The Otter Now Aiming at Patrick Slattery With Defamation Lawsuit
Yesterday, Republican activists and former political candidates Mr. Otto Slozer and Mr. John Donches filed a defamation of character suit against me in Lehigh County Court. If you follow the trail of this frivolous lawsuit, it leads right to the backrooms of Harrisburg. The attorney representing Mr. Slozer and Mr. Donches, Mr. Larry Otter, has done extensive work for the House Republican Campaign Committee to remove Democrats from ballots across the commonwealth.
This is the kind of baseless, desperate, and political stunt my opponent, Mr. Ryan Mackenzie, and his friends in Harrisburg use to win elections when voters are rejecting their policies which invade our privacy, allow oil companies to drill wherever they want in our communities, and slash funding to our schools
Mr. Slozer and Mr. Donches are also hosting tonight’s C.E.P.T.A. debate between Mr. Mackenzie and myself. The events of the last 24 hours are proof that an impartial and unbiased debate on the issues is impossible as long as these two men are involved and I will not dignify their partisan circus with my attendance. The event cannot go on as scheduled and should be cancelled immediately. I am willing to debate Mr. Mackenzie any place and any time he sees fit as long as an open and fair exchange can be guaranteed.
If Otter is involved, it has to be frivolous.
