Sign Stealer Caught

Every fall during election season, signs from Democratic candidates are stolen from private property and destroyed. This year Dems have had enough.
From a reliable source:
"Hello,
As you may know, we have had many of our 4x8 signs and other signs stolen in the Merrick-Bellmore area. Tonight, a dedicated group of Democratic Committeeman and Zone Leaders conducted a stake out. Our thief showed up. He started taking our signs and was arrested. He's spending the night at the 7th precinct with a committeeman and an "executive leader" waiting to bail him out. Here are the pictures."

Oh please ...

How many Republican signs do you see out there? How many Democrat?

And while we are at it, how is it that virtually every piece of commercial property in the Town of Oyster Bay features Rebublican signage? Could it be that commercial property owners in Oyster Bay are intimidated by Republican bullies. I know of one restaurant owner who has said so. The Democratic signs came off his property and the Republican signs went up. The last thing he needs is a series of never-ending health inspections.

If you think the Town of Oyster Bay has it bad with the proliferation of GOP signs (and the corresponding disappearance of DEM signs), visit us peons in the lowly Town of Hempstead!

When the Republicans were in power in Nassau County they passed a law prohibiting the posting of signs, posters, placards, etc. on public or utility property - such as trees, telephone poles, grass medians, etc. The law further went on to allow any "citizen" to remove such signs.

While this was enacted under the guise of minimizing litter and keeping the landscape beautiful, etc, we all know the true intent of the law, for at the same time, the Republicans began their tactic of bullying commercial enterprises into putting up Republican signs on their property - and threatening business boycotts or "worse" if they displayed Democrat signs.

Thus, under the cover of this law, the Republicans proceeded to launch legal sign removal squads to remove any Democrat sign on public property, while simultaniously using their bully tactics to add to the deluge of Republican signs on private property. The squads have since expanded to removing any legally placed signs they can find even if on private property (interesting how it is all done in the dead of night). This is clearly against the law, and for which the person photographed in this blog article was arrested.

In the 2003 election, a squad of these goons was followed in the middle of the night. They were also photographed and some of the culprits were even identified. Sadly, no fans of the Democratic party, the police stood by and did nothing. Amazingly enough (or perhaps not so amazing), one of the goons has since been elected to a state office, while his mother sits on a town board.

Here's what I don't get ... since the Democrats have been in power in Nassau, why has nothing been done to modify the public sign removal law. At the very least, the law should be changed to allow the placement of campaign posters perhaps six to eight weeks prior to any election, with the provision that such posters must be removed within one week after the election.

The other thing I don't get - The Republicans demonstrate every single day how they lie, cheat, bully - they will do anything to get into office, and once there they abuse their power to their own advantage. How in the world can ANYBODY trust these thugs enough to actually vote for them??!!??

When are you going to get it. There is no difference between the democrats and the republicans. Both sides do it all the time. One is no better than the other. What we as taxpayers should do is get rid of all of them and put ordinary people in office who care about their county. We don't need party politics from both sides anymore. It's time the people took their county back!!

Stop stereotyping, open your eyes and your mind and take a look at reality. Having been an active member of both parties (and currently a Dem) I can tell you for a fact that you are dead wrong - at least here on Long Island. Republicans around here are dangerous and they behave like thugs. On the other hand, local Long Island Democratic candidates are, for the most part, made up of the very well meaning, caring ordinary people you are looking for. The trouble is, those ordinary people can't compete against the Nassau Rebublican goon machine - and - the Nassau Democratic Party can't stand behind them beacuse they have throw all they've got into the County Executive and key legislative races.

Just a couple of examples of ordinary people that run for office on the Dem ticket but are generally ignored: John Rennhack - a network television technician - up against Peter Schmidt in 2003. John's a great down-to-earth guy whose wife gave birth in the middle of the campaign (Republican's launched a tirade against him because he chose to be with his wife rather than show up at a particular event). He never stood a chance. Larry Weiss, a local businessman and ordinary guy ran for Oyster Bay Town Board the same year. Got creamed by a Republican landslide. And while we are in Tobay - Mary McCaffrey - about as caring as one can get - an ordinary person, not a polished polititian - standing alone for the past two years on a Republican Oyster Bay Town Board. Jim Stephanich - great guy - ordinary, caring and brilliant who actually was re-elected receiver of taxes in 2003. He finally gave up being a Dem and switched parties because the Republican Supervisor and Town Board were making his job impossible and his life hell.

The list goes on - look at the majority of this year's Democratic slate. Basically ordinary (but talented) people running for office because they care. Check it out!

Come and check it out and if you can suggest something I would love to hear your advice :-)

The blogger fails to mention that the "perp" had permission from the resident to tear down the sign, since it was put up WITHOUT the owner's permission. He had written documentation that he was allowed to remove the sign and was never booked and was released that night.

How about when you put up a Republican sign and two weeks later an assessor from Democratic Assessror Harvey Levinson’s office shows up saying " they send me out to re-assess on permits." When I told them there are no changes or permits, they said "your house was flagged by the office for me to look at". And you think the Republicans are the BULLIES!!

Well I know that I am tired of these DAM liberals making up stories, and TAXING the hell out of use. Tom Suozzi has the nerve to say that he has not raised our taxes. THIS IS BULL SHIT. My friends and I will NOT be voting to Suozzi team in. When Tom Suozzi and his friend Harvey Levison STOP lying about THEIR reassessment thay THEY started. Then MAYBE My friends and I will not vote for the better party.

Excuse me?

Okay. Let's assume someone puts a sign on your property without permission. Who are you going to call? Most folks I know would call the people who put up the sign and demand they remove it. So you are telling me - this particular resident, rather than calling the Nassau Democratic Party (number listed in the phone book) instead called Republican goons to come and remove the sign? In the dead of night no less? Please!!! You'll have to come up with better BS than that. If a Republican goon had permission to remove that sign, that permission was obtained through bully tactics - plain and simple.

>>>Well I know that I am tired of these DAM liberals making up stories<<<

From dictionary.com (look it up yourself):

"lib·er·al ( P ) Pronunciation Key (lbr-l, lbrl)
adj. Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry. Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded."


Liberals are the folks who created the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, who gave birth to the ideas of civil rights, equality for women, trade and labor unions, Social Security and just about every major concept upon which our country is based.

Let me repeat part of the definition ... Liberals: "tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded". I would take that to mean that those who bash liberals are the opposite: intolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; closed-minded!

This is why you hear so much vitriolic "liberal bashing", but very little of the reverse. In reality, those who resort to "liberal bashing" have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. They don't even know what the word liberal means. They are just blindly following windbags like Bill O'really and Ruch Limbaugh, not unlike Germans who blindly followed Hitler, and just as dangerous. WAKE UP and think about what you are saying!!!

Oh come on! If that were true, Levinson would be out re-assessing virtually every piece of commercial property in Nassau County!

The way I see it, not only are there Republican goon squads out every night stealing Democrat signs, they also have Internet Goon Squads posting BS in response to every unfriendly post. If only the Dems could organize like that.

They do LOOK AT THIS BLOG YOU JACK ASS. No wounder no one like the Dems. That is why come November 8th I will not have to worry about Tom Suozzi being in office, or Harvey Levison. Since Greg and Kate will be elected into office. Get rid of the LYING DEMOCATS. I also had this problem,
"How about when you put up a Republican sign and two weeks later an assessor from Democratic Assessror Harvey Levinson’s office shows up saying", and when I brought this to Harvey Levinson’s office they said they would look into it. And a few weeks ago I find out My TAXES went up over $2500. Harvey is FULL of crap. WHY Do you think I am pisted.

The story is as follows. The owner of the piece of property is a registered Republican. He only allowed signs for Republican candidates to be placed on the piece of property. In order to get the sign removed, he contacted the local GOP organization to remove the sign. Rather than calling the Dems up so they could relocate it, the owner was smart and had the GOP come and remove it so that the lies and distortions of the Democratic Party would be destroyed rather than relocated.

Okay - take a drive up Route 106 in Jericho in front of the new Whole Foods Market (nice place, btw). The property owner allows both parties to erect signs there. The Dems have erected and re-erected signs for various candidates. They are all gone. The Republican signs are untouched. Drove by this morning. All the re-erected Dem signs were gone again, except remnants of a shredded sign for Mary McCaffery. Again - Republican signs untouched. Don't believe me? Hop in your car and drive by. It is appalling. Today's Rebublicans are nothing more than low-life thugs who will lie, cheat and steal to get into office - an indication of what they do when they actually get elected. It is really quite scary - and despicable. And it is why I am no longer, and can never again be, a Republican.

Drove by Hempstead TPKE. and Front street a few weeks ago. I see Tom Suozzi and Harvey Levinson signs covering both greg and kate signs and you think Rep. are thugs. How come the Democatrate act so low class. You would like we live in queens (note: Headstead TPKE. is starting to look like it for the last 3 years. and whom has been supervisor during this time. I'll let you figure this out.) Hint: It is not Greg. Thanks for your time.

Typical Republican Goon response. If this doesn't say it all, I don't know what does. They behave like bullies, thugs and lowlifes - and that is why I am no longer one of them.

Jason said...

Hey I just said that was wrong, I was a republican and I am still a republican. Because I know that may choice is better(opinion). You are the dem. goon for answering that way. You dem. keep showing me over and over again how rude you are.

Some of these answers including yours seems to be from a 12 year old kid.

Well unfortunately Dems the guy was not a goon the man who owned the property didn't want the damned Democrap signs up to begin with so the poor guy was falsely arrested he was just doing what the owner of the property wanted him to. You people are a bunch of cry babies with no lives not dedicated committee men. Dedictatd committeemen go out walk to their communities meet people and listen to the problems and the issues the constituents have. But I forgot David Denenberg and the rest of the fuckups I mean Dems couldn't give a half a shit about what we the citizens have to say they just want to make Nassau a part of NYC, build their HUB and draw business away from our communities. Hello mineola listen up we don't want that. We simply want a safe county that we can afford to live and work in. Thats it no light houses no light rail systems. Get a clue. Teddy Roosevelt would be fuckin ashamed to have his home in this county if he were alive today. I also neglected to say that dedicated committemen do not take upon themselves the duties of police officers and surround innocent people in their cars and throw blame on them for things that they did not do, they walk their districts and go home to their families at night. To the last poster Jason I would call you people bullies because you are the ones surrounding people in their cars and thinking you are police officers. Your legislative candidate's wife screamed at opposing committee men passing out literature in her neighborhood so much for democracy huh, not to mention when opponents signs when up rightfully so I might add she screamed at those neighbors like a maniac. Wow but we are the bullies. Listen When FDR died so did the Democratic ideals that actually made sence to our parents and grandparents 60 years ago. Row A baby, Row A!!!!!
