Back in 2010, Wolfgang Halbig suffered a fall on a sidewalk, for which he settled with the City of Apopka, Florida, for $25,000. He next tried to raise additional money by suing the homeowner’s association of the neighborhood where the sidewalk was located (this lawsuit, and some amusing deposition material found therein, has been briefly covered here).
Tiffany has some commentary about all of this:
Tiffany’s views about Sandy Hook and its characters have sometimes defied easy categorization, but here she asks exactly the right questions. Why does Halbig have such a long history of raising money with his injuries? Why is he trying to collect twice for this one? Tony Mead, however, is absolutely offended at this unfair line of questioning:
Interesting to learn that everyone Tony knows has been involved in some kind of lawsuit… he must hang out with some real shady characters. And it is true that most Truthers are indeed destitute underachievers (Tony should know). Tiffany doesn’t back down though. She lucidly explains the problems with Tony’s thinking, while Tony himself is reduced to frantically reciting the same old discredited nonsense:
And then Tony outdoes himself with tastelessness, invoking his own deceased nephew. I’d really love to know what Gary Mead thinks about his estranged alcoholic brother trading on his name.
I have no idea what Tiffany thinks of me these days, but I have nothing but respect for the stand she takes here.
NB: The “Jeff Dryden” Tiffany refers to is a cyber-douchebag friend of Tony’s. He promised to take this site down about a year ago. I’m still waiting.
