After I wrote about her unwittingly linking to bizarre conspiracy websites on Facebook, Rep. Jenny Graham called me a "cocksucker," a "lying piece of shit," "disgusting," "hateful" "sleazy" and accused me of an " attack on human trafficking victims."

Check out my SoundCloud of Graham calling me a "lying piece of shit" and telling me "It's on. If you think for one minute you're going to pull this crap and you're going to walk away from it, you're nuts."

Obviously, I take being accused of being a liar -- or even getting something wrong -- very seriously. Which is why I tried to reach out to Graham by phone and text message, and asked her to have a conversation about her concerns.

She did not respond.
In fact, even when asked by two others on her page -- both people I've previously had tough interviews with -- what was false about the article, she refused to identify anything specific.
Instead, she challenged me to post the raw audio recording of my interview with her.

So here's all 78 minutes:

In one of her Facebook attacks on me, meanwhile, she linked to *another* conspiracy theory site, one brimming with posts about vaccines, QAnon, the Illuminati, 9/11, chemtrails, Wayfair furniture sales, COVID-19 and, yes, reptilian-human hybrids.

Graham both accused me of trying to "silence" and "intimidate" her, and also said she was seeking a lawyer to sue me/The Inlander for libel.
The original Graham piece was just intended to be a sidebar to this piece about 4th WA Legislative District Candidate Rob Chase, who much more knowingly promotes QAnon, even if he doesn't describe himself as an outright believer in the theory: inlander.com/spokane/matt-s…
If you're wondering whether Graham called me a "cocksucker" (or, in daily newspaper speak, "a profane term often used by saloon owner Al Swearengen on the hit original HBO drama 'Deadwood'") someone noticed that she quietly mutters that on the voicemail.

Members of the 63rd Lightfoot Militia militia hang back in the parking lot watching the #Spokane #GeorgeFloyd protest. Tells me they're there to make sure that what happened last week doesn't happen this week.
#Spokane protest speaker Renee White seeks support for the cause from a member of the Washington State Patrol. He says he supports the 1st Amendment and they're there to keep everyone safe -- but doesn't go as far as to endorse the cause.
The protest in front of the Courthouse:
