A cover letter to McHale from an Arlington, Texas law firm claims that an article the MCHALE REPORT defamed Hernandez.
What did McHale actually say about Hernandez? Did he accuse Hernandez and his entourage of "bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people?" Had Jerry used such inflammatory language, Hernandez might have had justification in retaining the services of Attorney Frank Hill.
Read McHale's words and Hill's letter for yourself. Here is the link to Jerry's blog, containing the threatening legal letter and the language Hernandez claims he found defamatory:
Our January 5, 2016 Brownsville Observer article identified Hernandez as the renter of cryptic signs throughout Cameron County promoting something called OP 10.33.
This blog and local bloggers Juan Montoya, Jerry McHale and, eventually, Bobby Wightman-Cervantes ALL found objectionable and offensive elements in the techniques, style and methodology employed by Mike Hernandez III and OP 10.33. Proposing to give a $2,000,000 stipend to United Brownsville, that unelected, elitist entity that attempts to shadow and usurp local government? What the hell?
Mike Hernandez III foray into Brownsville politics has been a learning curve, an expensive one, largely because he simply didn't do his homework. Will he choose to dive into a local lawsuit involving 1st Amendment rights similarly unprepared?
