Bothell, WA asked in Libel & Slander for Washington

Q: Very troublesome issue, slanderous rumors.

EX husband of an ex gf is spreading rumors in the very small town of coupeville wa. He's telling anyone who will listen that I'm a pedophile, peeping tom, stalker, anything regarding that issue.

None of this is true, not a shread of this is has one bit of merit. Now, people whom I've never had a bit of problems with are now approaching me, In public with the audacity to tell me im not welcome, people who have fallen for this mid 50s man's drama.

What are my options? It's causing stress to no end. He was a huge factor in why I stopped seeing my former gf who simply told me it was my problem.
