When Blog Wars Go Bad

Posted on | April 18, 2012 | 5 Comments

Frequent commenter T.R. sent me this item:

Lehigh Valley blogger Bernie O’Hare is making good on a promise to sue a woman who sought a restraining order against him last week.
O’Hare filed a defamation suit against Tricia Mezzacappa, of West Easton, in Northampton County Court on Monday afternoon. He is seeking more than $50,000 in damages.
Last Wednesday, Mezzacappa filed a petition for a temporary restraining order against O’Hare, and requested protection from stalking and cyber-stalking. . . .
In Mezzacappa’s request, she claimed O’Hare sexually assaulted her in her home last Aug. 26; tried to use his blog, Lehigh Valley Ramblings, to ruin her reputation as a professional nurse and politician; regularly accosted her while she was walking in Hugh Moore Park; tried to poison her pet pot-bellied pig, and told police that O’Hare may have been involved in a burglary at her home last Nov. 10.

You think that’s bad? Just wait until Bernie O’Hare finds out Tabitha Hale didn’t invite him to BlogCon.

    Worse’n you think.  Bernie’s hosting the BlogCon panel on cyberstalking.

     Maybe Stacy should be a member of that panel!

     Exactly!  We would be certain of getting opposing view points.
