Former District 20 Candidate Eli El Weighing Lawsuit Against Delegates Hixson, Hucker, Mizeur & ex-Blogger Adam Pagnucco

UPDATE: A reader points out that the blog posts in question were written over a year ago. That means the statute of limitations may have expired on these types of claims.

Former District 20 candidate for House of Delegates Eli El appears to be contemplating a lawsuit against District 20 Delegates Sheila Hixson, Tom Hucker and Heather Mizeur, along with former Maryland Politics Watch (MPW) blogger Adam Pagnucco. A source has pointed Maryland Juice in the direction of a draft legal complaint by Mr. El. We copy the document below.

It appears (for now) that Mr. El is representing himself, given the unusual construction of the complaint. It doesn't seem to actually state the legal basis for any claim upon which he might seek relief. Instead, Mr. El broadly discusses the tactic of "Cyberbullying" in political campaigns and seems to complain about the way the MPW blog discussed publicly available documents regarding alleged domestic disturbances in his legal docket. Unfortunately those articles are now offline:

Was Mr. El inspired by former Senator Mike Lenett's lawsuit against his former legislative aide? If so, we in the blogosphere should note the frivolous nature of Mr. El's claims -- lest we all begin to face a wall of harassment from sore losers everywhere. See the weak argumentation for yourself:
