Law enforcement arrested a State University of New York professor just after she received caught on digital camera allegedly thieving GOP signals from a New York home’s lawn.
A movie allegedly confirmed SUNY New Paltz economics lecturer Laura Ebert stealing property signs from a New York household supporting Republican candidates in New York throughout the 2018 midterm election cycle. The Rosendale City Police Section billed Ebert with a larceny misdemeanor for the theft of the symptoms, according to the police report obtained by The Washington Cost-free Beacon.

The lawn signs supported New York Republican Rep. John Faso for Congress and Marc Molinaro, the New York Republican gubernatorial applicant.
“I did it in a minute of weakness and large emotion,” Ebert reported in a assertion to Campus Reform.
“I intended no particular harm, and really don’t know the particular person whose lawn the indication was on. I have family members I really like that help Trump, so I was right after the sign, not the individual.”
“I have apologized and experience poor, but plainly the GOP is placing a significant deal [of] spin on this,”she continued.
“Many indicators have been taken and disfigured, which, though no justification for my terrible behavior, will not warrant the loss of life threats I have obtained on my email about it. Nor the smear campaign after me including notifying my supervisor.”
Campus Reform reached out to SUNY New Paltz but the faculty did not respond in time for publication.
