No, not the canned meat product.
No, not the unsolicited electronic bulk messages.
Today, we’re addressing the unsolicited analog political advertisements that have defaced property in the Borough of Westwood, NJ.
This political spam turned up last year in anticipation of an election for Bergen County sheriff.
The election is over, but the spam remains.
The most egregious political spam remaining in place bears the name of the election’s victor, Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino.
These spam stickers can be found in a number of places throughout the borough of Westwood, and in other Pascack Valley towns. They hang like a claim of ownership, like a warning to all those who enter, like a “tag” placed by a gang on its territory.
Defacing public or private property in this manner is a violation of N.J.S. 2C:17-3 (Criminal Mischief).
Why have the local and/or county police ignored this vandalism for so long?
