Cliff Willmeng

Our favorite radical is claiming victory for bullying Lafayette into coughing up $5,000 to forgo a lawsuit because the former mayor wouldn’t let him harass her on her own Facebook page.

This isn’t the first time Cliff Willmeng has sued a female mayor for blocking him on social media.

He and another defendant also took $30,000 off Thornton’s mayor pro tem when she kicked him off her page.

Of course it’s the taxpayers who have to pay the settlements.

People like Willmeng are why we can’t have nice things anymore, like access to our public officials through social media.

Because of these types of lawsuits, public officials will have little choice but to open their page to every nutjob on the planet and essentially abandon the page, or close their social media sites altogether.
