    Bizarre email exchange between state senator and displeased constituent

    By Mike Krumboltz | The Sideshow – 7 hrs ago



    Missouri state Sen. Brian Nieves (photo: Wikipedia)
    When an unsolicited email arrives, most people hit delete and move on with their lives. Not Bart Cohn.
    The Wildwood, Mo., resident received a newsletter from Brian Nieves, a Republican member of the Missouri Senate with whom Cohn does not see eye to eye on the issues. According to River Front Times, which originally reported the story, Cohn wrote a seven-word reply to Nieves' newsletter. "Take me off your mailing list. Freak."
    And thus began a wackadoo exchange of insults between Cohn and Nieves, all of which were forwarded by Cohn to River Front Times.
    After Cohn's tersely worded response, Nieves issued a retort:
    Who are you? Is there something wrong with you? Are you incapable of communicating in a way that common, decent people do?
    Tell me this, how did you ever even get on MY Distribution list?
    Cohn fired back:
    Remove me from your list. I despise you.
    Nieves then wrote this:
    Tell me who you are and how you ever got on my list. I don't take we'll to some troll sneaking on to my distribution list.
    Things get weird(er). From Cohn:
    I don't care what you take well to. Take me off your list. I don't know how I got on your list. And I don't sneak. I'll tell you to your face I think you're a freak. Now act like a big boy, senator, and remove me from your list as I've requested. And stop harassing me or I'll make an issue of it.
    Nieves apparently took issue with the word "issue." He wrote:
    Explain "issue"
    Are you threatening an elected official? I'm sure your very Big & Bad & Tuff.
    The ONE and ONLY way for you to have gotten on my list is by YOU having communicated with me via email. I guess your the type who wants to be able to throw something my way but not hear back?
    You'll be removed but be Very Careful to NEVER Threaten me! Also, don't ever send anything to this email address again because every time you do, you automatically get put back on the distribution list. :-)
    Think that's the end? Nope. Cohn responded with more insults:
    I didn't threaten anyone, you tool. You are such a douchetard it's not even funny. Now go do some work on your insane conspiracy theories that everyone laughs about behind your back. You're a joke!
    To which Nieves wrote:
    Wow. Your communications are so thought provoking, well written, and intelligent. Perhaps you secretly want to be on my distribution list because every time you send me a message, your email is recaptured and put on my distribution list. I'm tiring of taking you off every time you email me AGAIN so unless you are in love with me or have some other sort of sick obsession with me (sorry, I'm straight as an arrow) you should probably stop emailing me so that you don't keep getting put back on the list. Should I type these instructions slower? Are you having a hard time understanding? BTW - I archive ALL questionable emails like yours in case there's ever any doubt about who got ugly first. Go back to the grade school playground where people you can successfully bully and out smart are playing cuz junior... You are way out of your league with me.
    Cohn apparently did not respond. But Nieves couldn't resist writing one more email and referencing a photo of Cohn from Facebook.
    BTW... You really don't look good with a beard.
    In a comment posted on the River Front Times story, a person identified as Cohn expressed some regret for his part in the exchange.
    I shouldn't have called him names. But I'd just had enough of him. He was spamming me left and right with his insane newsletters, I'd just had surgery, and I couldn't take it anymore. I was shocked he wrote me back immediately, I had expected him just to remove me from his distribution list. And then for him to write me back 5 more times after that... I'll let the public be the judge of what went down between us.
    Messages seeking comment from Nieves were not immediately returned.

    Oh, and how depressing is it that even an elected official can't figure out you're vs. your.

    Maybe his teen gay lover responded to his email while the senator was in the shower after a steamy gay sex session?

    When i write to elected officials all I ever get back are canned responses to their current pet issue, my issue is never addressed.
