As a former resident of Connecticut, Ive been following Linda's 2nd Senate campaign as closely as the first when I got to vote against her. This one is a LOT more fun.
Started off sort of innocently with a local editor doing the standard, WWE was raunch pre-2008 column. Unlike the 1st campaign, the WWE fired back with lawsuit threats and claimed they were being "bullied" – I have no idea how they got that. http://www.darientimes.com/news/darien-features/local-news/5003306-wwe-threatens-columnist-with-libel-suit-over-pornography.html
In response, basically every CT newspaper has called out the WWE for being the bullies. And the local editor, under threat of lawsuit, fired back with a tremendous burn on Linda McMahon: http://www.journalinquirer.com/articles/2012/05/30/chris_powell/doc4fc6ea7f645fd394119365.txt
And here's a good roundup basically calling out the WWE for turning this into a PR nightmare. http://blogs.rep-am.com/worth_reading/2012/05/29/the-empire-strikes-back/
PS – My favorite part is the "Trish barking like a dog" YouTube video being taken down by the WWE after newspapers started linking to it.
I think that any libel case filed by WWE can be destroyed in 5 seconds with four words: Edge's Live Sex Celebration. That was simulated sex on a WWE TV show, which is pretty much the definition of pornography.
Linda is many things, but a smart politician is WAY down the list.
