“If a thief is found breaking in and is struck so that s/he perishes, there shall be no bloodguilt for her/him, but if the sun has risen on her/him, there shall be bloodguilt for her/him. S/He shall surely pay. If he has nothing, then s/he shall be sold for her/his theft.” (Exodus 22:2-3)

Like Coeymans, If New Baltimore Democrat Candidates Can’t Get Votes Honestly They Resort to Other Ways
Coeymans police lietenant Kerry Thompson’s son(s) and friends were caught on video vandalizing and stealing the political campaign signs of someone the Coeymans police or daddy Kerry Thompson don’t support. But that’s Coeymans business-as-usual. What do you think of New Baltimore town board candidate Angelis’ criminal conduct? (See What candidate Jeff Ruso (R) who has the Republican, Conservative and Independence party endorsements has to say about it, comment below.)
But it gets much worse when you consider the campaigning in the Town of New Baltimore, Coeymans’ evil twin to the south, in neighboring Greene County. There candidate Janet I. ANGELIS, a democrat and New Baltimore Conservancy elite-club-member, who is running for New Baltimore town board along with another New Baltimore insider, SCHRAUF.
It seems Ms ANGELIS takes it upon herself to decide where her opponents’ campaign signs should or should not be. In fact, if she doesn’t like where her opponents place their signs, Angelis simply steals or removes them. But that’s not all. Angelis, despite her criminal activity. Yes! Stealing or removing an opponent’s political signs is THEFT. In addition, it’s interfering or preventing the freedom of political expression guaranteed by the First Amendment freedom of speech rights. Not only that, it’s interfering with voter’s rights to make a choice of candidate.
What’s even stupider is that Angelis, after perpetrating her theft, vandalism and illegal removal of her opponents’ campaign signs has the gall to appear early in the morning at the home of Mr Jeff RUSO, one of her opponents, blocking Ruso’s in his driveway as he’s leaving for work, and dumps the signs, telling Mr Ruso he shouldn’t have put them where he allegedly posted them. Now isn’t that richt: Angelis breaks the law and then has the balls to decide where the signs should have been placed (in a previous article we called Angelis “gender ambiguous;” it seems our diagnosis is correct. She has BIG balls!).
Put yourself in ANGELIS’ and SCHRAUF’s shoes for a minute: Imagine that your opponent has decided they are getting their asses kicked and your campaign sucks, so you resort to desperate measures and violate election law and regulations, intentionally or not, and by breaking the law — yes, theft is still a crime, even in New Baltimore — Angelis and her gang are trying to get an unfair advantage in the race. Moreover, that this issue isn’t just about campaigning but also trust. Why should voters trust someone like Angelis and her gange to create laws and to govern when they can’t even follow some of the simplest rules during their campaign?
We can all agree that stealing the signs is a crime under the law. And we don’t have to argue the fact that campaign signs come under the protection of First Amendment freedom of political speech and tht if you interfere with that right you are violating the candidate’s civil rights. But even New York State election law prohibits such stupid and illegal conduct. But Angelis is also breaking New York State Election law, which reads:
§ 6201.1 Fair Campaign Code
In order that all political campaigns be conducted under a climate promoting discussion of the issues and presentation of the records and policies of the various candidates, stimulating just debate with respect to the views and qualifications of the candidates and without inhibiting or interfering with the right of every qualified person and political party to full and equal participation in the electoral process, the following is hereby adopted by the New York State Board of Elections pursuant to section 3–106 of the Election Law as the fair campaign code for the State of New York. No person, political party or committee during the course of any campaign for nomination or election to public office or party position shall, directly or indirectly, whether by means of payment of money or any other consideration, or by means of campaign literature, media advertisements or broadcasts, public speeches, press releases, writings or otherwise, engage in or commit any of the following: (a) Practices of political espionage including, but not limited to, the theft of campaign materials or assets, placing one’s own employee or agent in the campaign organization of another candidate, bribery of members of another’s campaign staff, electronic or other methods of eavesdropping or wiretapping. Up to a $ 250 fine,
And the NYS Election law states further:
§ 17–152. Conspiracy to promote or prevent election Any two or more persons who conspire to promote or prevent the election of any person to a public office by unlawful means and which conspiracy is acted upon by one or more of the parties thereto, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. (L.1976, c. 233, § 1.)
Our advice to her opponents, whose campaign signs Angelis removed and stole, and whose civil rights she violated, and by doing so violated the New York State election laws, is: File a report and complaint with the Greene County Sheriff or with the New York State Police. Let Angelis fight it out with the Greene County District Attorney in court. Send a clear message that political campaigns are part of the democratic process, even in New Baltimore, and that WE THE PEOPLE will not tolerate misconduct and criminal activity by the liks of ANGELIS and her gang. If we can’t trust candidates like ANGELIS to behave while campaigning, what can we expect if, God forbid, they should actually be elected?!?
New Baltimore Candidate for Town Board Janet ANGELIS is Guilty of Political Espionage, Theft, Civil Rights Violations, and Violations of New York State Election Law. She and her supporters should be prosecuted under the laws of this state to the fullest extent of the law. She and her supporters are LOSERS all the way!
And Readers: What do you think of such behavior by a candidate?
