05*Speaking out for the first time, Rosemary Port, the blogger who anonymously scorned model Liskula Cohen as a “ho” and a “skank”, said that she plans to sue Google for $15 million for revealing her identity when put under pressure by the court.

The furious blogger, a 27 year old student of Fashion Institute of Technology, blamed Cohen for uplifting her blog and exposing it to the media, thus drawing ample amount of attention not only from Port’s comments but also to Cohen’s behavior at New York Clubs. “This has become a public spectacle and a circus that is not my doing,” said an agitated and disturbed Port who had labeled the 37 year old model Cohen as an “old hag”. “By going to the press she defamed herself. Before her suit there were probably two hits on my website. One from me looking at it and one from her looking at it.

That was before the spectacle. I feel that my right of privacy has been violated,” said Port who seemed to be angry with the media uproar regarding the whole issue.

Cohen said that she is prepared to sue Google for “breaching its fiduciary duty to protect her expectation of anonymity,” said Port’s lawyer, Salvatore Strazullo. “When I was being defended by attorneys of Google, I thought my right to privacy was being protected. But that fell right through the cracks. Without any warning I was put on a silver platter for the press to attack me. I would think that a multi-million dollar conglomerate would protect the rights of all its users,” said Port.

“I am proud to be in a country where you are not persecuted for your opinions,” said a seemingly agitated Port.
