Former U.S. Attorney-Turned-Congressional Candidate, To Talk Radio Host: I Could Sue You For Defamation


"So you're saying you're going to sue me?" Griffin replied. "Is that what you're saying, Mary Beth, because Dr. Wecht and others are suggesting? So you're gonna run for Congress, and you're threatening to sue me because we're suggesting that the case cost $20 million?"

"I'm saying that you have to know what you're talking about before you start repeating things," Buchanan replied.

Griffin challenged Buchanan to provide information on the salaries of all the people who had worked on the case, saying that he didn't believe it was only $500,000. Which led to this amusing exchange:

Griffin: Are you gonna answer my question?

Buchanan: I am answering your question, if you would shut up and let me talk.

Griffin: Oh, so this is how you're gonna run? Telling people to shut up and threatening them with lawsuits?

Buchanan: Listen, if you want the facts, I'm here to give them to you. If you hear want to hear yourself talk, then why do you even invite people to come on and be guests?

Griffin: Go ahead, Mary Beth.

Buchanan: Okay, thank you.

Griffin: You sound very defensive to me. It's a long road, Mary Beth, to run for office. This is just the beginning. This is just your toe in the water.

Believe it or not, they both seemed to have cooled down at least somewhat by the end of the interview, and Griffin invited Buchanan to appear on the show again.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
