Another e-mail lesson NIMROD UPDATE

Posted By on Sat, Dec 19, 2009 at 7:38 AM

The state Ethics Commission yesterday properly dismissed a complaint against a public radio newsman at ASU who'd mistakenly sent an e-mail intended for someone else to the campaign of Conrad Reynolds. The e-mail referred to Reynolds as a nimrod.

Of course he wasn't campaigning, so the complaint was outside the bounds of the commission's consideration. And, of course, it's another lesson in the need for care in e-mail communication. But it's worth remembering that even public employees have free speech rights, particularly when it comes to speaking truthfully.

NIMROD UPDATE: Thanks to Stump for noting Jason Tolbert's post on the departure of Conrad Reynolds' campaign manager, Ryan James. James seemed to be reasonably intelligent. More evidence.
