“It’s astounding what the ‘White Privilege’ power from Tanglewood has vs a whole diverse community that cares for the well being of others,” Garcia-Lopez wrote. “These are their names: Jennifer Treger, Todd Daniel, Kerri Rehmeyer and a coward Jane Doe. Internet do your thang.” While Garcia-Lopez has made most of her posts on Facebook and Twitter private, Rehmeyer provided screenshots of her posts to Fox News. Garcia-Lopez went on to share the phone number and address of Treger, along with Rehmeyer’s employer, her phone number, and her work email address (this sensitive personal information has been blurred from the photo below). When a local activist thanked her for sharing the information, Garcia-Lopez wrote, “They definitely need to be called out.”
Rehmeyer told Fox News that Garcia-Lopez had singled her out because she and other parents oppose critical race theory (CRT) – a framework that involves deconstructing aspects of society to discover systemic racism beneath the surface – and because they sued the school district, challenging the COVID-19 mask mandate. In August, a court granted a temporary injunction against the mandate, but the school district has twice appealed the case to higher courts.
Warren Norred, the lawyer who represents Rehmeyer in the mask mandate lawsuit, told Fox News that he and his clients have “considered suing Garcia-Lopez for release of private information” but decided against it. “It’s kind of like complaining about defamation – you can end up making it worse.” The lawyer said Garcia-Lopez strongly supports CRT and that she cannot stomach opposition to it. “All of her angst and umbrage comes from the simple reality that she enjoys a strong liberal take on CRT, and she does believe this is a racist country,” Norred said.
