The Point Breeze Organizing Committee, who we wrote about earlier in the week regarding their online spat with their bete noire, developer Ori Feibush, has now issued a cease and desist letter against Feibush.
In a mass email, the group alleges that Feibush doctored a Facebook conversation with PBOC organizer Gary Broderick, in order to discredit the group. In a video included with the email, what appears to be a screencap of the conversation is shown, showing a lengthy, profanity laden screed with Broderick's name at the top, next to an arrow that says "FAKED".
The group alleges that Feibush had been showing neighbors images of this supposed conversation, which purportedly includes a pejorative racial term, in order to discredit PBOC. Earlier, they claimed that Feibush tried to stage a block party in the path of a planned protest this Saturday.
Feibush denied this both accusations in emails this week, adding that he was "not familiar with any cease and desist letter" and that he had "not received any correspondence from Gary or anyone representing him." He said that he had planned the block party without knowledge of the protest, and moved the event when he found out about PBOC's event.
Earlier in the week, Feibush had accused Broderick of living in a house constructed by OCF Realty, Feibush's company. In a lengthy comment issued by Broderick in response to that story, he said "workers built this house", not Feibush.
