Trump Supporter admits to failed attempt at false falg operation

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/340806-trump-supporter-admits-writing-anti-trump-graffiti-at-elementary

Kind of interesting, especially given Maddow tonight, the lengths these people will go to make their desperate projection seem valid.


A supporter of President Trump in Connecticut says he wrote threatening anti-Trump graffiti on elementary school equipment hoping to frame Democrats because he believes they are "disrespectful to our government."

Stephen Marks, 32, wrote “Kill Trump,” “Left is the best,” "Bernie Sanders 2020" and “Death to Trump” on playground equipment at Hartford's Morley Elementary School last month, according to the Hartford Courant.


...

Marks told police he vandalized the equipment "out of anger towards liberals and they are breaking major laws every day and being disrespectful towards our government,” the Courant reported.

NJ Rep. Freylinghuysen targeted a constituent by writing to her employers

http://www.wnyc.org/story/frelinghuysen-targets-activsts-letter-boss/

The most powerful congressman in New Jersey, Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, wrote a fundraising letter in March to a board member of a local bank, warning him that a member of an activist group opposing the Republican worked at his bank.

The employee was questioned and criticized for her involvement in NJ 11th for Change, a group that formed after the election of Donald Trump and has been pressuring Frelinghuysen to meet with constituents in his district and oppose the Trump agenda.


...

Above the word local, there’s a hand-written asterisk in the same blue ink as Frelinghuysen’s signature. At the bottom of the letter, scrawled with a pen, is the corresponding footnote: “P.S. One of the ringleaders works in your bank!”

Attached to the letter was a news article that quoted Avelenda. She says her boss presented her with both the letter and the news article. She was not fired, but she says she had a lot of explaining to do.

I had to write a statement to my CEO, and at my level as an assistant general counsel and a senior vice president, at this employer it was not something that I expected,” Avelenda said. “I thought my Congressman put them in a situation, and put me in a really bad situation as the constituent, and used his name, used his position and used his stationery to try to punish me.”


This is such a disturbing violation of ethics that it requires attention. Since the CEO of Lakeland Bank appaently needed his executives to write statements regarding this ridiculous abuse of power from a snowflake congressman who doesn't seem to understand that getting one of HIS bosses (that is what a constituent is after all) harassed at work is something that he should not be doing, perhaps we should reach out to him and his board and let him know?

Be calm, be kind, be reasonable and do not be abusive, simply let the gentlemen and ladies know how you feel about the Congressman they support, and how you feel about how they chose to harass an executive in their employ over her exercise of free speech in her personal time attempting to exercise her right to speak with her cowardly, ethically challenged failure of a Representative.

The emails for the board of this bank are here:

The CEO is Thomas J. Shara Jr., and the guy the Rep wrote to was Joseph P. O'Dowd, who apparently also runs an advertising business.

Here is their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/LakelandBank/ It's their pinned post and seems like it needs some more input, how about it?

If you do business with this bank, perhaps your words would have greater meaning to these people?

As to Rep. Freylinghuysen, his website invites you to contact his offices, here they are, along with the people you should be asking for since his unethical snowflakeness will be too frightened to take your call.

Congressman Frelinghuysen has two offices to serve residents of the 11th District. Please feel free to contact either office with any concerns or questions you may have.

Looks like we've got a successful advocate for voting rights cases in CA!

And we can thank Breitbart for introducing him to the nation.

I understand it's verboten to post right wing sources, but I'm hoping this can be an exception, since it goes into extreme detail about a guy who seems to be getting under the thin skin of the Nazi loving, voter rights hating Breitbart gang. It's quite long, but what an introduction and deep dive into Kevin Shenkman, who knew such a hero existed doing the work we all know is required. I hope this guy moves on to more national cases soon!

Please see comment #2 below for more information on this lawyer and what he's been up to that irked Breitbart so much! (Thanks @csziggy!)

I'm going to leave this link here, in case anyone is interested to see the tantrum that this one guy provoked from Bannon's minions, the comments are hilarious too. I'm not sure if there is anyway we can support him and his work, but we can at least pay attention to what's going on!
