But my wife saw this posted on the Daily News website today by an anonymous PARD scumbag:
Of course Tom Forbes is responding here. You know that, too. Just follow the nasty, offensive posts and you'll find forbes! Again, it is amazing to me that this is the issue that he has decided to waste his time on! I'm sure his children will be proud one day as they look back and say, "If it wasn't for Dad I wouldn't have the opportunity to buy all this cheap crap and to work at this minimum wage job with no benefits!"Well, you don't mess with a woman's children. My wife responded as follows (using her real name):
How dare you bring my children into this!!! For the record, my kids and I are extremely proud of my husband for taking a public stance on an issue he feels strongly about. It's one thing for Tom to be insulted by people who lack the courage to use their real name the way he does, but it is repulsive that you drag innocent children into this discussion. Have you no shame?To which "WSU Student" answered:
This will be my one and only post to this thread, so I will take the opportunity now to dispel a myth that frequently appears on the Daily News website (see above from WSU Student). My husband, Tom Forbes, is not being paid by Wal-Mart. I wish he could be compensated for the numerous hours he has volunteered to bring this very important issue to light. However, Tom says the thanks he receives from local business owners and residents is more than enough.
At least Mrs. Forbes had the guts to use her real name which Tom Forbes never does. I won't use my name either. Do you know why that is Mrs. Forbes, so proud of your wonderful husband and the community service he provides to Pullman? Because I don't want my face pasted on your husband's disgusting website with all sorts of lies and insults. I think he said himself not long ago that he sees his community service as pulling others into the pigstye with him. Nobody knows whether your husband is paid by Walmart or not but considering the pack of lies he spews on his website I guess with your blessing there is no reason to believe you. Yes, have you no shame is a question that many have for him. Glad to hear you are proud of that and you've programmed your kids to be too.Bringing my children into this slime and then calling my wife a liar and says she "programs" our kids is beneath contempt, even for the bottom-dwelling, lowlife PARDners. I won't stand for it.
Wondering why the Daily News is in financial trouble, Nathan Alford? Get rid of that cesspool of anonymous comments at your newspaper for a start. Someone doesn't like what I have to say here? THEN DON'T EVER VISIT AGAIN. The Daily News, however is a NEWSPAPER to which people pay money to get local NEWS, not anonymous character assassination. People that read the news have no choice but to view all this nastiness, whether they want to or not. It's just the same as walking into a newsstand and seeing porno mags laying open all around.
This "WSU Student" also claims to have gone door-to-door for Nathan Weller. I just contacted Nathan and I'm sure he will denounce these comments as he has no desire to be associated with a wife-and-child attacking dirtbag like that.
UPDATE: I have identified "WSU Student." Once I get confirmation on his identity, I will be taking the appropriate actions.
