Gun Toting Tea Party mom wins $1.12M for false prosecution

A Long Island mother of three arrested for taking pictures of an Air National Guard base in the Hamptons ​– ​while ​armed to the teeth with a licensed assault rifle in her car — has been awarded ​$1.12 million​ by a federal jury over her false prosecution by Suffolk County authorities.

​The Central Islip ​jury ​on Thursday sided with Nancy Genovese, 58, in a 2010 lawsuit she filed against Suffolk County​, its​ Sheriff’s Office and other parties, ​claiming she was ​only ​arrested during the July 2009 incident because she belonged to the Tea Party.

Genovese was arrested while taking pictures of a decorative helicopter in front of the Gabreski Airport Air National Guard base in Westhampton Beach for a “Support Our Troops” website. She was charged with criminal trespass and spent four days in jail before the charges were dropped.

Southhampton cops searched her and found a legally owned rifle that she was transporting from a nearby rifle range. She contends a deputy sheriff arrived on the scene later and said to her, “I bet you are one of those Tea Party people.” When Genovese said she’s gone to Tea Party rallies, he allegedly said, “You’re a real right-winger, aren’t you?” and “You are a ‘Teabagger’” and then added that she’d be arrested for terrorism to make an example of other “right wingers.”

“Ms. Genovese was subjected to a level of abuse because [authorities] did not share the same political views as she did and saw this as an excuse to deny her even the most basic civil rights,” her lawyer Frederick Brewington said.​​

I love it, keep suing these liberal idiots, bankrupt their departments and let them explain to their tax base why the have no money. 

Ultimately, when the government gets sued, it's we the people that pay.  It comes out of our pocket.

I have no objection to her having the money, but, I'd be happier still if I knew that those that were responsible, for this outrage, were themselves arrested, tried and jailed.

Some of them might lose their job over this, but, that hasn't been much of a determent to other law enforcement officers that share the same UN-American and UN-constitutional beliefs, when enforcing their idea of what the law is.

These people need to understand that they can and will go to jail, for this kind of harassment of American citizens.

Unfortunately, many of those who apply for deputy sheriff positions are not rocket scientists. The vast majority have an education?? from our disastrous excuse of a "system". The Dept. of Education should be relabeled the Dept of Indoctrination (into stupidity).

Ralph, You just posted a note that woke me up when you stated "Un-American" and "UN-constitutional" It occurred to me the answer was "UN", the United Nations. Just saying.

Oh!.......your not just saying, you said it!

UN, Small Arms Treaty, for instance, It's not someone's imagination, Kerry signed it.

Thank God that, alone, his signature is still as useless as it was in Vietnam.

Hopefully she will use some of that money to fight the crap we have in WH! I would! I would donate A LARGE sum to TEA Party! I would use what I needed to slap Obama in the face!

Agreed, when on the 6 O'clock news, you see members being taken away in handcuffs and jailed. Then lets see how fast they think differently.

It's a feel good story.  I only wish this would happen more often, those in government positions, when they feel they do not have any accountability, are totally out of control.  Hopefully situations like this will highlight the need for more accountability for unelected government officials.

My hat's off to her. I probably would have shot the a$$h0le deputy sheriff..

I love the pictures with this story.  The patriotic spirit lives on in America!

We can and will be victorious if we stand united!

God bless America!

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
