Interesting case of telephonic harassment

But Mary Jo Pullen-Hughes, who estimates she has made about 75,000 phone calls to public officials, bureaucrats and journalists over the last two decades, isn't easily discouraged.
When she phoned receptionists at both departments, the federal government pushed to have her prosecuted for telephonic harassment.

Excellent case law. Over 75,ooo phone calls and the DA dropped the charges because she was not threatening anyone and she was calling a government office. Lane was not threatening anyone and he was contacting a quasi governmental office that is completly out of control.

I hope Lane presses charges against Tri Met and Roberta Alstad!
