Kuhlman is a "public figure"..she is Chair of local GOP and has ran for public office putting her name on the ballot. The comments on the Hornback Blog are par for the course in politics. Kuhlman needs to learn to take a little heat or get out of the kitchen. She ran for the GOP chair and is known for making off the cuff comments frequently. It appears most of the comments she claims libeled her are true anyway. Kuhlman chill out.

There was a day, perhaps a better one, when the political gadfly Hornback would have called the loudmouth chairperson Ruthie out with her choice of weapons. If the public's best interest were to be served they would have been dueling pistols, and we would be minus two self serving sycophants.

Ruthie appears to have under estimated Brian Hornback. She was with Jeff Ownby when he went to court about his Sharps Ridge incident. She got her daughter a job with Phil Ballard and he is rumored not to make it in office into 2014, the gray bar motel calls his name. She aligns herself with McCroskey and Briggs. All incompetent and losers of their respective aspirations. How can Kuhlman say she never said what she said when she was calling the guy the next morning. I wonder if she or her attorney tried to get the guy to recant his story before he provided his statement and voicemail to Hornback?

Ruthie, please just go away. As head of the Sequoyah Blue Hair Society we're tired of you & your cronies.
