An Election Incident at Waldbaums

On saturday, King, Faso (candidiate for governor) and Joe Saladino (local Assemblyman) went campaigning at the Waldbaums on Hicksville Road in Massapequa.
A posse of 30 people plus a limo set up shop so that the three candidates could press soem flesh.
The problem was that with such a large group, it was difficult for shoppers to navigate the entance and exit to the parking lot.
A store manager came out and asked the group to move along.
Saladino didn't like being told what to do but decided to relent when the manager said he would call the police.

According to witnesses, Saladino got a bit too big for his britches and was knocked down a few pegs.

Note to local politicians: It might be your district but that doesn't make you the boss.

2 years late BUT I just saw this. To start I am a Nassau County Republican Commiteeman and I was at this event. The "LIMO" was a black Crown Vic unmarked Nassau County PD unit. There were 4 people other than the candidates. The crowd was caused by the many people stopping to talk to Pete King and thank him for all he has done. The manager was the one dressed down by the shoppers who to him as well as they could reach him with his limited grasp on the english language that that they were happy to see him there.
