Sam Brownback, Red Ass

Yet another adult in authority bullying a kid.

This time it’s the governor of Nebraska, sending his goons after a high-school kid because she tweeted that he “sucked.” (via Drudge)

The instinct of the political class toward authoritarianism is clear and disgusting.

As for this high-schooler, I believe that truth is an absolute defense in a defamation case. And it isn’t hard to prove in this case.

Update: Brownback has apologized to the teen. Good for him.
