The Pride of ArtVoice, Alan Bedenko, has been mercilessly attacking Republican Congressional candidate in CD-26 (incumbent Brian Higgins) Kathy Weppner on the AV blog. It is difficult to count the number of poison posts, but most are at least a little unhinged. I met Kathy the other day and asked if she would do an interview. We met for coffee this morning at the Lake Effect Diner on Main Street in Buffalo. I was fascinated to learn that, like many of Bedenko's other victims, she has never met the Pride or even spoken to him. You decide whether this is the worst, most vicious and contempable person you have ever encountered.
