BY KEITH ROLLMAN – Yes, Eric Ryan the man who harasses his “enemies” with phony charges of illegal activities, has become the first one to get cuffed and hauled off by the police for actual illegal activities. Seems that he has learned the hard way that when state judges issue restraining orders to stop you from harassing someone they actually mean it.
In September, he arrived, in his “Citizen Patrol” T-shirt and derogatory banner to “protest” a Kym Pine sign-waving group. Previously, however, Pine had won a TRO to keep the cyber thug, Ryan, at arms length. Apparently, thumbing his nose at the state court system is a no no and get’s the full attention of HPD.
Ryan is a serial slanderer; that is what he does; apparently that is all he does.
Kym Pine is just one of Ryan’s latest targets. He is currently focused on both Pine and Tom Berg, who have offended him in different ways. Berg fired him, and Pine refused to pay a fraudulent bill he sent her.
There have been many others who endured a Ryan assault which typically features a defamatory website, forged email and other Internet based slander.
The list of victims grows long and includes everyone who has ever fired Mr. Ryan; or had the audacity to stand up to him. It seems, however, he can only focus his full wrath on two people at once.
This year’s District 1 City Council race places Ryan on the horns of a dilemma because it pit’s his two current “enemies,” Berg and Pine against each other. We can assume he will try to interfere in the election and make trouble for both; TRO or no TRO.
His latest effort is a curious email campaign, which looks like a fake Pine attack piece on Berg, and claims “Rep. Pine has “essentially” joined Citizen’s Against Crooked Politicians,” Ryan’s one-man hate group. It goes on to ask for donations so people can “help us (and help Kym Pine).” This time Ryan goes beyond simple harassment and flirts with criminal fraud. Clearly, he has no intention of “helping” anyone but himself. His Citizens Against Crooked Politicians current activities include a website smearing Pine and distributing fake wanted posters charging her with over a dozen “crimes.” It is very unlikely she has “joined” his organization and zero chance he would like to “help” her in any way.
Stay tuned, as Ryan continues to try to inject his brand of defamation and dirty tricks into this campaign in his desperate and futile attempt to become relevant.
