Gonzalez denies stealing signs. Threatens legal action

Bayshore Tea Party Group founder Barbara Gonzalez said “I have never done that and I never would” regarding the report on MMM on Saturday that a Cullari for Congress volunteer said she and BTPG activist Joe Abbruscato were spotted stealing Cullari’s signs in Middletown.

In an email to MMM Gonzalez said her attorney advised her to request a retraction and an apology or proof that she stole the signs.

On facebook Gonzalez threatened to sue Cullari’s Middlesex County coordinator Peter Carrol, campaign manager Charles Measley and “a certain blogger” unless proof of the allegations is produced by 9PM.

MMM contacted the campaign volunteer who says he witnessed the theft at about 7:40 PM on Friday.  He said he “definately saw Joey with the signs.  Barbara’s Jeep was pulled over so she was likely around.”

Rob Little, the former Highlands Mayor’s husband, called MMM shortly after our report was posted to say that Gonzalez was with him all night on Friday and that she could not have been involved in the theft.  MMM immediately updated the report with Little’s story.

    Now the question is: what were Babs and Rob doing in that Jeep? And does Joe know? What about Anna?

    Oh please.
    Lawsuits over campaign signs?? This is about as juvenile as it gets. Why must local campaigns always devolve into this nonsense about road side signs? Nothing but garbage filling our dumps, once all is said and done.

    Yes, please waste more of our tax dollars by pursuing frivolous lawsuits. Running our NJ courts isn’t expensive enough yet. We need more judges bogged down deciding cases about who stole who’s garbage, and who lied about it. So what if property taxes go up again.
