Laura Ebert, an economics professor at the State University of New York at New Paltz, was charged with misdemeanor larceny for stealing signs supporting Republican candidates.
A New York professor has been arrested after she was caught on camera ripping out Republican yard signs from someone else’s lawn.
Patrick McGovern noticed the signs were missing so he reviewed the footage, which showed the public university professor pulling up to the signs, hopping out of her truck, pulling the signs out of the ground, and putting them in the bed of her truck on Oct. 30.
“It’s crazy in our area lately. It’s never been like this,” Lisa, a registered independent, told Fox News. “People are getting over-emotional.”
McGovern said the incident was especially “frightening” because it was so close to their home, but she said it was amusing to find out it was a local professor.
