First, he clearly says "what I believe is a scandal." Everybody has a right to their opinion on what transpired. It certainly is NOT a crime for me to think what happened with the fire department records is in fact a scandal.
Second, he said, "there should be demotions and a full investigation and possible prosecution of those employees and union officers that knowingly over-inflated their pay." Again, I fail to see what is wrong, because this is only saying anybody who did that should face those repercussions and I agree completely. IF none of that transpired, then nobody will or should have to pay that price.
Based on these statements, I see nothing wrong.
What were the other statements that led to the defamation of character?
At issue are Nabity’s comments during an Oct. 29 talk radio program in which he said LeClair had “committed fraud” and “theft by deception” and that he was “receiving money from public funds” that weren’t due to him, according to a defamation lawsuit filed by LeClair.
