FREDERICK, Md. — A newspaper in Frederick, Md., decided to do just the opposite of what a city councilman told them to do, and wrote an editorial that has now gone viral and made the councilman famous (or infamous.)

The war of words started when councilman Kirby Delauter reportedly told Frederick News-Post reporter Bethany Rodgers never to print his name unless he gives her permission.

She had written a story about parking spaces allotted to councilmen.

Citizens of the free world know this is a ridiculous request from Delauter, and especially since he’s a public figure elected to office.

Spurred on by what they considered “bullying” by the city councilman, the newspaper printed an editorial that used the councilman’s name 30 times. Read it here.

Councilman Delauter issued an apology on his facebook page, according to the paper.
