UPDATE: With a link to Bart Cohn's comments to Eureka-Wildwood Patch on Facebook.
Missouri State Sen. Brian Nieves hit the headlines of the Riverfront Times alternative newspaper this week after it revealed the details of a nasty email exchange the senator had with Wildwood man Bart Cohn.
You can judge for yourself who you think was in the wrong in the exchange.
Nieves, a Republican whose 26th district includes parts of West St. Louis County (including Wildwood) and Franklin County, received this email from Cohn, who was apparently on a mass email list from Nieves' office: "Take me off your mailing list. Freak."
The exchange started there and escalated. , responded to ask if Cohn was "incapable of communicating in a way that common, decent people do," according to the exchange published in the RFT.
Cohn's emails said he "despised" the senator and chided Nieves to "act like a big boy." Nieves in turn called Cohn a "troll," and accused him of harassing him.
UPDATE: Bart Cohn responded in the comments below and also about the episode on our Facebook page.
