Report: GOP candidate sues Rep. DeFazio over billboards

According to The News-Review in Oregon, Robinson's attorney filed an 11-page defamation suit, which says DeFazio is using "half-sentences and partial ideas" that are meant to convey a "false portrayal" of Robinson. But DeFazio told the paper that all the billboards are true.

"All of them are documented," DeFazio said. "They are accurate. He said all those things."

Robinson's suit also argues that three of DeFazio's billboards fail to include a disclaimer saying who paid to put them up. DeFazio told The News-Review that this was an oversight and is in the process of being corrected.
