Andy Hedden-Nicely is living up to his name as he has urged supporters of his third party congressional campaign to do their best to inflict pain and suffering on the Idaho Statesman, but in a civilized manner.
Last week Hedden-Nicely and Statesman publisher Mike Petrak exchanged e-mails in which Petrak threatened Nicely with legal action, commenting that Heddon-Nicely’s resources could be drained if stickers were not removed from Statesman newspaper boxes.
Here is the text of Heddon-Nicely’s letter to his supporters:
JOIN THE BOYCOTT, BUT DO IT IN A LEGAL WAY – PLEASE!
Dear Supports of the United Party and the Boycott of the Idaho Statesman.
At the request of the “new” Statesman publisher, Mike Petrock I am sending yet another email asking each and everyone of you to remove any stickers you have put on any Idaho Statesman property including their newspaper boxes. Also please do not put any United Party Boycott material on the Idaho Statesman newspaper boxes in the future.
To participate in our boycott in a legal way please ask businesses you patronize to call the Idaho Statesman (377-6370) and ask to have the newspaper and/or the Statesman boxes removed. This will accomplish our boycott goals and remove the temptation of the boxes.
Heddon-Nicely, not the GUARDIAN, offers the misspelling of “PETRAK” as “PETROCK.”
