Forde files response, denies charges; Plaintiff files notice of dismissal of action

It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is for people to believe a lie. Especially in the presence of silence by the one being falsely accused.

Such is the case of Sue Forde (R) of Sequim, a recent candidate for Clallam County Commissioner. Now that her accusers, none other than the local media, have filed a dismissal of action without predjudice, Sue will have opportunity to tell the real story. It will be told on this site.

Our readers might note that she was careful not to use the Citizen Review to tell her story or answer the lies of the Peninsula Daily News (PDN) until she could do so freely. It is not wise to talk about pending cases, especially in the news media. The dismissal followed on the heels of the Defendantís answer filed on the previous day, by her husband Bob Forde, whose name was added to the case by the plaintiffs.

There are many guesses as to why Peninsula Collection Services, representing the PDN filed the dismissal.

Anyone who can read and understand could see the list of grievances, misconstrued information, lies, exaggerations, and more by the plaintiffs against the defendants. Oh yes, and of course the election is over. Could that have been a planned deception on
their part. I will say it was.

Although the requested 5 million dollars to a church of the defendants choice could have rocked the plaintiffs it also shows the defendants were not greedy for money for personal gain as accused. Hopefully the public will take the time to give the Fordes the chance to explain their side before casting judgment.

One never knows who their real friends are until there is a crisis.
Stay tuned!
