Attack of the Gracedale Goon
Mary Ann Schmoyer, Jack D'Dalessandro and his wife, Peggy, are now wearing "Gracedale Goon" buttons wherever they go, and last night, they decided to go to County Council so they could heckle Ron Angle every time he opens his mouth. It's one of their hobbies.
At last night's meeting, they sat two rows behind me, and of course, the catcalls began as soon as their ample derrieres hit the seat cushion. I decided to film them in action, as I've done once before, hoping to shame them into allowing others to speak without interruption.
Instead of behaving, Jack D'Dalessandro jumped out of his seat and tried to silence my flipcam, right in the middle of a public meeting. In the process, he knocked a poor woman right out her seat.
These are the people who want to restore civility to Northampton County Council.
A Deputy Sheriff pulled D'Dalessandro outside and lectured him on proper decorum.
For the first time, the Gracedale Goons were quiet.
