William “Wild Bill” Kerr, 32, posted a copy of an e-mail he received Thursday from Rod Nixon, a partner in Stephen Jones law firm. Jones is representing Jordan Edmund, the Istook staffer Kerr connected with sexually explicit instant messages sent by Foley.
Jones confirmed Friday the e-mail came from his office.
Text of e-mail from Stephen Jones law firm to PassionateAmerica:
From: Rod Nixon
Date: Oct 5, 2006 10:17 AM
Subject: Jordan Edmund
Dear William Kerr and Passionate America:
Please be advised that I represent Jordan Edmund. It is our understanding that you and Passionate American are identifying Mr. Edmund with certain Instant Messages ("IMs"). You have indicated that ABC News mistakenly published these alleged Ims and that you should not have been able to obtain this information. Whether this is true or not is beside the point. Without any foundation or legal permission, you are stating that our client is the person associated with the Ims. Neither ABC News nor Brian Ross have been error free in their reporting in the past. You should not assume that they are correct now.
