    I was concerned that the taxpayers would have to pay his attorney fees. But if he is claiming that his page is a personal one then it seems like he will have to pay them.

    If bonehead loses in court that will be a huge win for us. He would either have to take down his FB page or allow criticism on it. Plus he will be out all of the attorney fees and the court costs.

    Yes, I have been following what is happening in politics.

    It seems to me that if bonehead claims his FB is a personal account then he would not be able to use taxpayer money for his legal costs. If he loses the suit and the judge says that his FB account is a public account then he may be able to use taxpayer money to pay the costs.

    It is going to be interesting to watch this unfold. Either way it goes we the people will win.

    What is legal and what should happen often has no effect in what politicians get away with.

    Not condoning it, just reporting the facts ma'am.
