Loser in election sues, alleging she was defamed
Harriet Miller, who lost a 2006 election to state Rep. Tony Goolsby, is suing the Dallas Republican, the county GOP and the PR firm Allyn & Co. for defamation of character. The lawsuit filed Monday in Dallas district court alleges that they spread false accusations that Ms. Miller engaged in voter fraud during a previous election. A couple of weeks before the 2006 election, Dallas County Republican Party Chairman Kenn George sent a letter with those allegations to the district attorney. The lawsuit states that either Mr. George or Allyn & Co. leaked that information to KTVT-TV (Channel 11), which ran a story about the DA’s inquiry. Mr. Goolsby then mentioned the story in campaign ads. Ms. Miller’s lawyer, J. Gerald Hebert, said it “went beyond dirty campaigning and crossed over to illegal campaigning.” Mr. George called it a “political stunt” and said he didn’t say anything that he didn’t believe was true.
