Dan Meuser for Congress Releases Letter From Attorney Confirming Recent Ad, “Mentor” Is Not Defamatory

Pottsville:  Today, the Meuser for Congress Campaign released the following letter from legal counsel Matthew Haverstick, which was delivered via email to the Wolff campaign, confirming that our claims regarding Denny Wolff’s debts in our recent ad, “Mentor" are not defamatory. Click here to watch ad.

Haverstick wrote, “The ad is not defamatory, it will not be taken down, and if you pursue any legal action against the campaign or its employees you will be subject to a Dragonetti action.

“Here are the facts: Mr. Wolff signed a promissory note and a guaranty agreement with Northern Central Bank that authorized the entry of a judgment in the full amount of each of the debts in the event of a default. Northern Central Bank filed two separate praecipes to enter judgment against Mr. Wolff. There appears to be no basis in the promissory note or the guaranty agreement for the bank to enter a judgment absent a default. Therefore, the obvious conclusion is that Mr. Wolff twice defaulted on obligations to Northern Central Bank.”

“Our ad is not defamatory and is accurate,” said campaign spokesman Mike Barley. “Desperate Denny Wolff is the one who is running a dishonest ad and that is why our campaign will be taking action to have his campaign stop airing his most recent ad filled with lies. In Denny’s ad, he despicably says that Dan’s company “preyed on seniors” and that is a flat out lie. Secondly, he alleges that Dan supports an “Age Tax” and that is another lie. Our campaign is about the truth. Unfortunately, Denny Wolff is following the Nancy Pelosi playbook of lie and do anything to get elected. The voters are smarter than that and will let their voices be heard on Election Day.”

Dan Meuser is the Republican nominee for U.S. Congress. Dan has served both as a private sector businessman responsible for helping create thousands of jobs and as Secretary of the Department of Revenue for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
