Letter to the editor
I have read all the social media postings about Paul Chablo’s campaign. Though some people questioned his ethics and motives, no one knowingly spread lies. It is not slander that Mr. Chablo means, but rather libel, as he is referring to the written and not the spoken word. In order for someone to be guilty of defamation—libel or slander—they need to have spread known falsehoods that have injured the reputation of the victim. People might have speculated and might even have called him or others liars. But that is not defamation. To threaten legal repercussion seems out of place.
