Md. Official Might Sue Us All Over Bizarre Name Spat
Frederick County Councilman Kirby Delauter threatened to sue a newspaper reporter for using his name in a story.By Christian Bryant | January 6, 2015
We've just started 2015, folks, and we might've just experienced the most ridiculous dispute of the year.
Internet users joined hand-in-digital-hand to antagonize Frederick County, Maryland commissioner Kirby Delauter after he started a beef with a local newspaper reporter for using his name in an article — without his permission.
The initial exchange took place on Facebook Saturday between Delauter and Frederick News-Post reporter Bethany Rodgers. She used Delauter's name twice in an article about his concerns regarding parking for county officials.
