Lynn Dannheisser Confuses Italian-Named Law Firm With Her Favorite Pasta Joint
In July 2010, town commissioner Edward Kopelman threatened to have the State Attorney's Office investigate "the true identities and true authors" behind the blog and its local counterpart, Who Controls Surfside?, both of which have been critical of town government.
So Save Surfside retained a law firm to write a letter to Kopelman, demanding that he cease his "bullying" tactics.
The name of the law firm is the Randazza Legal Group. Which apparently thoroughly confused Dannheisser. Or maybe she was just trying to make a snide joke about how the law firm wasn't prominent enough for her taste? We're not sure -- Dannheisser wasn't at her town hall office when we called and didn't immediately
respond to an email. (See update below.) Either way, this is the type of befuddling immaturity in our public officials that Riptide absolutely loves. The letter is below. (Randazza Legal Group's response, which points out Dannheisser's "inability to distinguish between the vowels a and o," is here.)
Update: Dannheisser emailed us: "This letter was in response to a formal letter from the Randazza Legal Group to Commissioner Kopelman which threatened legal action and demanded, among other things, that he cease and desist from public comment. This demand was an improper attempt at prior restraint. My light-hearted comment was designed to make the point that such a demand was ridiculous."
