MT PLEASANT, WI–A Mt Pleasant woman alleges that she has been the victim of cyberbullying by the village’s Fire Chief. Kelly Gallagher has been an outspoken opponent of the Foxconn development, and is one of the admins of the Facebook page “A Better Mt Pleasant.”
She’s asking village officials to investigate her allegations. Gallagher alleges that Chief Robert Stedman created a mock page solely to harass her. She says a glitch in that site eventually allowed her to find out who created the mock page.
She has filed a complaint with the Police and Fire Commission. It’s unclear that even if Stedman created the posts that anything illegal was done.
Gallagher’s spokesperson says they are hoping for a punishment that fits the crime, up to and including termination.
