Last Sunday a comment left on this post by “N.F.” indicated that Mayor Dick Davis sent a letter to me. He even provided a link to a copy of the document he claims Mayor Davis transmitted via fax and e-mail. This is a big deal for reasons N.F. points out.
N.F. @ November 6, 2010 at 9:27 pm
Finally, and most importantly, this is a copy of the fax and emails Dick Davis sent to PCP and Merritt Patterson on Wednesday, October 27, 2010, in advance of last week’s paper being printed and/or distributed, and in advance of Merritt Patterson’s piece falsely accusing Dick Davis, obviously attempting to make him look dishonest and/or foolish. She and the paper were informed of the truth; and they apparently ignored it.
It is already known that PCP knowingly printed on its front page as news a story beyond totally false, malicious, and incorrect against the Anti side of the campaign. That’s already been discussed and proved. But, this fax also demonstrates other information generated or written in the paper or on the Web by the PCP and/or Merritt Patterson was known to be false and misleading and demonstrably untrue.
Aside from the fact that it seemed odd for N.F. to have access to Dick’s files, there is nothing found in the link above that indicates it was sent. No fax number, time it was sent or a confirmation report that it actually went through. And there isn’t a copy of an e-mail with the address it was sent to or the time and date it was sent. So I double checked. Nope. Didn’t receive a thing.
Maybe he didn’t even send a letter. I mean, we don’t even know who N.F. really is, he could be some nut. So I decided to go straight to Mayor Davis via e-mail.

A reader sent us a link to a copy of what he/she claims to be a letter, sent by you, via fax and e-mail on October 27, 2010. Can you please confirm whether or not you sent the letter? I did not receive a fax or e-mail from you and am very interested in the authenticity of the letter. [LINK]
Thank you so much,
I hadn’t heard anything by the following day so at 9:37 a.m. on Tuesday, November 9, 2010, I left a voice mail for Mayor Davis asking the same thing I had written in the e-mail on Monday.
Then today I received the following e-mail.
From: Davis, Richard

Yes, the e-mail was prepared for me and sent. My notes show that you were copied on it.
So I responded.

Thank you. Can you forward a copy of the e-mail to me? And also a copy of the fax confirmation?
I appreciate it so much,
Nothing yet. But I’m so totally on this case.
