Things are getting heated and strange outside polling sites in Council District 30/State Senate District 15. A Nunziato volunteer rested a sign against the bottom of this Como/Maltese sandwichboard, being that they are on the same ticket and are all being supported by Mike Ricatto who donated the frames. The Serf volunteers called the cops and one of their thugs to the scene, claiming that their signs and frame were being destroyed. As you can see, they weren't.
Said thug is pictured above, pointing and yelling at the photographer with his car blocking traffic. The police came, talked to both sides and left. About 2 hours later, a police officer told an Addabbo volunteer that she couldn't stand behind the official board of elections sign that indicates a safe distance at which you may electioneer. She was told to stand on the next corner. The same thing apparently also happened at PS229 in Maspeth. Sad that Serf and Como feel the need to call police over palm cards and signs. And even sadder that they did it to someone from their own party.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, I guess. Sucks to have to actually have to take part in a competitive race, doesn't it?
