Dan Bice, please report to your peephole
Well, either Jerry Bader at WTAQ just opened himself up to a serious slander lawsuit, or he has the explanation of why Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton decided not to run (audio). (Thanks to Lakeshore Laments.)
Look, I’m not looking for saints in public office. But if her lifestyle was such an open secret supposedly, how stupid would she have to be to consider running? Did she think it wouldn’t eventually come out?
Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton denies the story about the affairs and threatens “legal pressure” to get Bader and WTAQ to retract the story.
Jerry Bader now retracting the story:

I HAVE LOST CONFIDENCE IN THE SOURCES THAT PROVIDED
INFORMATION YESTERDAY REGARDING LT. GOV BARBARA LAWTON.
