Johnson County Supervisor Rod Sullivan sent an e-mail to Iowa City resident Yale Cohn at 2:26 a.m. Sunday saying, "F--- you, 'Donny,'" referencing Cohn's user name on the Press-Citizen Web site.Posting back and forth on the paper's website got a little testy between the two and the supervisor didn't care for it.
Sullivan called his response "appropriate to what I was confronted with."Methinks he doesn't like criticism.
"They sent me an e-mail, and I responded," he said. "I don't even know who it is."
Sullivan said he does not feel "obligated to sit back and take this crap from somebody I don't know."
"I think it's just par for the course with the site, frankly," he said. "I don't have time for somebody who hides behind some kind of anonymity."
I think I've tempered some on the internets even with anonymity* (in real life, I'm an ass) so an elected official with his haughty-ass nose in the air acting like he can't take "crap from someone I don't know" better get a new job. Just a thought.
*I'm not anonymous for the people that I correspond with on a regular basis.
