Samm Simpson's response to Kriseman



Samm Simpson wrote a blog post explaining her reaction to Rep. Rick Kriseman's letter slamming her for campaigning at Raytheon community meetings.

She writes that this blog's headline, "Kriseman rips Samm Simpson on campaigning at Raytheon" implies she's assumed guilty and has to prove her innocence, the same "modus operandi" of the Bush administration.

She adds she's never had a conversation with Kriseman and he made no effort to talk with her and get the facts before writing her the letter.

"In all my years as a parent, a corporate executive, an activist or a candidate, I have never received a communication such as the one that arrived on Wednesday from State Representative Rick Kriseman," she begins her post.
