“Raise your hand if you’ve been a victim of ‘The Eye’ !” someone yelled outside of the County Administration building recently. Several people raised their hands. This gathering was assembled just before a county board meeting was scheduled to start. A local “activist group” led by a failed Aldermanic candidate called Tanya McLean rallied to oppose my nomination to a county commission – that I ultimately declined.
Among the people who claim to be a “victim” of this publication are:
A career violent criminal named Sharmain Harris, who among other felonies, broke into his girlfriend’s home, choked and beat her before he stole her money.
A used-panty-stealing Kenosha mailman named Evan Quirk.
The embattled Village Administrator of Salem Lakes named Michael Murdock.
A former politician and current attorney who had a mistress OD and die in his bed, and his wife who attacked him, named Ted and Connie Kmiec.
A man who has two OWI’s, was arrested for being drunk with a gun, caught two felony charges for beating his kids with a belt buckle, losing all custody and placement for both of them, and I’m suing for defamation, named Ray Roberts.
County Board Supervisor Andy Berg who has OWI and drug convictions and has been involved in a lot of shady stuff in the last few years.
A Kenosha Alderman named Anthony Kennedy who beat his coworker with a chair after a verbal dispute.
A failed candidate for State Assembly Crystal Miller, who hired a food truck owned and operated by a convicted sex offender during her “100 Women Who Care” event.
What do all of theses people have in common? Their bad conduct made them newsworthy, so I published articles about them.
On March 8, 2022 I filed a defamation suit against local criminal and BLM Activist Ray Roberts. He has long criticized me and my political beliefs. No problem there. He took it too far, however, when he started publishing lies on the internet, especially those about my children. Here are just some of the outlandish things he said about me:
I am training my kids to be suicide bombers, to blow up their middle school.
I threatened to kill multiple Veterans in Kenosha
I take money as a Private Investigator to find battered women in confidential domestic violence shelters, so that their abusers can beat them again.
I threaten and harass African-American families including children and women in Kenosha.
Roberts has somehow convinced his followers that he is the plaintiff in this case and he is on a “mission to hold Mathewson accountable.” He secured free representation for his defense from the president of the Wisconsin ACLU. Roberts doesn’t have much money and has had several tax warrants over the years for failed business ventures. My lawsuit has survived a motion to dismiss and summary judgement. It is going to trial in three days. A jury will decide if he is financially liable for his defamation. For me, it’s not about the money, I agreed to drop the suit if he apologized to my family including, my 12 and 14-year-old kids. He declined. He makes frequent videos on Facebook that talk about the status of this lawsuit. They are mostly false. Of course, he is soliciting money online as well, naturally. He never tells his audience exactly what statements I’m suing him for. Today we had a final pre-trial conference and in court today were two of KCE’s “victims.” Mike Murdock and the used panty-sniffing thief mailman Evan Quirk. Once they learned in court today that I was the plaintiff, they left. They were lied to.
Nobody wants to make it on the “Eye” for a negative reason. Here is some advice on how to avoid being featured on The Eye;
- Don’t break the law
- Don’t Do Stupid Crap
- Don’t steal used panties out of mailboxes
For the most part, if you stick to these three simple rules, the rest is cream cheese.
So if you’ve been featured in The Eye, or in any media source for that matter, don’t blame the publication, blame yourself. The age of the “victim” is over.
