(BOE Race) Dirty tricks on election day...

Superintendent is breaking the law by having
these posters put up in school buildings,
most of which are polling places.

The image above is of a poster Plainfield
Superintendent of Schools Anne Belin Pyles is having printed and posted in the public school buildings today, which is school board election day.

The poster, advocating passage of the public question (the budget) is in violation of New Jersey election law (NJSA 19:34-15) which I am quoting below --
19:34-15. Electioneering within or about polling place; disorderly persons offense.

     19:34-15. If a person shall distribute or display any circular or printed matter or offer any suggestion or solicit any support for any candidate, party or public question within the polling place or room or within a distance of one hundred feet of the outside entrance to such polling place or room, he shall be guilty of a disorderly persons offense.


The matter is being reported to Municipal Clerk 'AJ' Jalloh, the city's chief election officer.

This is crazy!
