Stand Back, Chuck C. Johnson Is Going to Sue Politico
Today, dear readers, I’d like to direct your attention to Politico’s profile of hirsute hate-monger Chuck C. Johnson, because even though it’s irritating to see this cretin getting media coverage, Jacob Silverman nails Chuck pretty well:
I don’t know about the “digital Darth Vader” title, though. Chuck’s more like a digital Dark Helmet.
In any case, Silverman interviewed me as well for this piece, and here’s what I had to say:
Some people have little choice but to engage Johnson. Another man named Charles Johnson, who writes the political blog Little Green Footballs, is sometimes confused for his more inflammatory counterpart. “It’s like he’s damaging my brand with his behavior,” the proprietor of LGF said. Last month, Charles C. Johnson showed up at a Los Angeles apartment where the other Johnson used to live and tweeted a photo of it. The former resident was unamused: “He’s been so incredibly vicious towards me on Twitter that it’s hard to feel that this is just a harmless prank,” he said, describing Charles C. Johnson as an “egomaniacal bully and a malignant narcissist whose behavior borders on and sometimes crosses into outright stalking.”
If you had to guess, how do you think Chuck is reacting to this article? That’s right! Stand back, HE’S GONNA SUE.
I just got off the phone with my attorney. Looks like we are suing Politico if we don’t get the retraction.
In case you were wondering, the Internet has now been free of lawsuit threats from Chuck C. Johnson for just over 44 minutes.
