Mayor Sam receives formal "Cease and Desist Letter" from Democratic Political Consultant John Shallman's Attorney Andrew Cowan.
** Blogger's note: In response to a blog missive posted here yesterday regarding Democratic Political Consultant John Shallman, the Mayor Sam Blog received the following "Cease and Desist Letter" from Gallo LLP Attorney Andrew Cowan, on the behalf of Mr. Shallman. In the spirit of openness, transparency and the First Amendment Right to Freedom of the Press, we post the letter below for your review. As the letter below states, Mr. Cowan is representing Mr. Shallman against a lawsuit filed by former client City Attorney Carmen Trutanich. For the record, the post that is the subject of Shallman's protest, was not a statement of fact by this writer, but merely an exercise in ascertaining the veracity of an email received by myself (** which was partly validated by Shallman's Attorney Andrew Cowan). Further, this writer has never endeavor to slander the Shallman Family, but merely reported on the recent work of Lani Shallman's "West Coast Public Affairs Business". In closing, this blog writer will continue to comment factually in the future on Mr. Shallman's political work and accord him (or his chosen attorney) the right to rebuttal---Scott Johnson.
