It might be easier to keep track of the public officials and municpalities not being sued by Sam Zherka. This time it’s Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore who is being charged with violating the First Amendment rights of the Westchester Guardian publisher and owner of a real estate empire that includes a Manhattan strip club.
The violation, Zherka says, came in a March 21, 2007 phone call from Janet DiFiore. It left the 6-foot-3 Zherka “chilled in the exercise of his First Amendment protected rights, humiliated, menaced and rendered anxious and upset, and otherwise rendered sick and sore.”
That conversation, according to Zherka’s legal papers, came after the Westchester Guardian published a report about supposed dealings between Independence Party chairman Giulio Cavallo and DiFiore’s husband, attorney Dennis Glazer, concerning the Independence Party’s endorsement in the District Attorney’s race in 2005.
