GotNews.com has been hit with a cease and desist letter from the counsel of Congresswoman Renee Ellmers amid allegations of her own martial infidelity.
GotNews.com stands by its story regarding the DC, NC, and Bakersfield rumors regarding an alleged affair between Congresswoman Renee Ellmers and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. We look forward to the opportunity to avail ourselves of deposition with seated members of congress should it come to that.
The letter, reproduced here, was written by Thomas A. Farr, an attorney from Ogletree Deakins, a white shoe law firm.
Meanwhile Congressman Walter Jones of North Carolina has called for a full vetting of McCarthy before the speaker vote.
“I’ve had the pleasure of serving the third district of North Carolina for the past 20 years in Congress. Some of the most difficult times have been when our Republican leaders or potential Republican leaders must step down because of skeletons in their closets,” said Congressman Jones. “We’ve seen it with former Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Bob Livingston, who ran for Speaker in 1998. Let’s learn from the past and not go down that road again. Let’s make sure the new House Republican leadership team is full of individuals that can do the job without distractions that further degrade the public’s trust in the people’s House.”
Has Congresswoman Renee Ellmers or her staff consulted with Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy or his staff before hitting GotNews.com with this letter?
