Editorial Cartoonist, Other Journalists, Sued by GOP Candidate

Westchester County GOP candidate Jim Russell has called out editorial cartoonist Matt Davies, as well as other journalists and even two fellow Republicans, suing them for $1 million each for calling his views racist.
"Jim Russell, the disgraced GOP House candidate in Westchester — who penned an article warning of the evils of interracial mixing and movies like Save the Last Dance, and then gave a really sweaty and nervous interview about it that made us uncomfortable for days — is suing various journalists and Republican officials for $1 million each because they 'smeared his name' by pointing out how racist he is.
"The lawsuit names Journal News columnist Phil Reisman, reporter Leah Rae and political cartoonist Matt Davies. It also named John Goff of News 12, Richard French of RNN, Justin Elliott of, Douglas Colety of the Westchester Republican Party, Alexander Carey of the state Republican Party and Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center."
