The writers at the HV News Lies have included the above PDF of an article that appeared in a recent edition of the Northern Dutchess News that detailed the recent lawsuit of Stephen Costa against the town board members claiming they engaged in criminal behavior.

While this article placed the current town board in a rather disadvantageous position refering to state law that invalidates their claim, what is not so apparent is the question of where is the Hyde Park GOP in all of this?

The writers of the HV News Lies are of the opinion that the party leaders of the Hyde Park Republican party are  incompetant because the circumstances surrounding Mr. Costa's lawsuit may place them at an advantage and even perhaps rehabilitate their reputation considering the devasting loss they suffered in the November election.

We should note that in 2010 and 2011 the Hyde Park Democrats were well organized in regards to their attendence and orchestrating protests at the 2010 town board meetings which led to the success of their campaign to elect Aileen Rohr and a democratic town board to office.

Now that this town board is riddled with scandal and the allegations of criminal acts, the question looms...where is the Hyde Park Republican party and why aren't they utlizing this crucial time to gain momentum? Perhaps it is because the Hyde Park GOP is ineffective and inept and the party leaders aren't really leaders but mere figureheads.
