“Two Election Workers Targeted by Pro-Trump Media Sue for Defamation”

Reid J. Epstein, N.Y. Times

“Two Georgia election workers who were the targets of a right-wing campaign that falsely claimed they manipulated ballots filed a defamation lawsuit on Thursday against one of the nation’s leading sources of pro-Trump misinformation.”

Must admit I am not a big fan of defamation suits. Don’t individual election workers become public figures when there is an election meltdown? I guess I could be persuaded not. Maybe. Or maybe the claim is one of actual malice? I am left curious. And who knows may even get around to reading the complaint by tomorrow.
