Rostan “started to call me a low-life jerk and (expletives)” in Vukmir’s Capitol office, Bruce Lowrey, co-owner of C. Lowrey Process Service, said in the affidavit. “When I got outside Jason was running after me and he pushed me and knocked me down and threw the paperwork at me and continued to call me all kinds of (vulgar) names.”The kerfuffle occurred when the Lowreys were trying to serve Vukmir with a notice of a lawsuit by our friend at The Center For Media and Democracy, who are seeking documents they believe Vukmir received from ALEC. Vukmir is a top official of ALEC.
Lowrey said he and an employee had tried twice previously to serve Vukmir.
Lowrey’s wife and business partner, Chris Lowrey, said the next day she went to Vukmir’s office to complain.
“One of the guys got rude and snotty and I told him to stop right there,” she told the State Journal. “I told them, ‘You guys are the ones who make the law, and you have to follow it. Be professional.’ ”
In her affidavit she describes Rostan holding his hands behind him while she reached around and touched the papers to his hands — to make the service legal — before leaving the papers on a desk.
“That office hopefully learned a lesson,” Chris Lowrey said. “I’m a Republican, and I was disgusted with their behavior.”
Interestingly, they are staying true to their nature by shifting the blame:
Vukmir staff members had been told by the state Department of Justice not to accept service in the case, Rostan said. Department of Justice officials couldn’t be reached Wednesday night. Vukmir didn’t return phone calls or emails seeking her comment.I can't help but wonder sometimes if the Teapublicans have some sort of secret contest going on to see who can be the most outrageous. It's hard to believe that a whole group of people could be this willfully ignorant and maleficent.
But hey, at least they weren't singing.
