Reform Party candidate for NY-27 shows up at Bannon rally with Collins in jail jumpsuit cutout
Pro-Trump Reform Party candidate Larry Piegza showed up to the Steve Bannon rally in Elma with a cardboard cutout of Chris Collins dressed in a prison jumpsuit.
"I knew that Collins wasn't going to show his face at the rally, and I wanted people to know exactly how he might be representing our district," Piegza said. "My internal polling shows that Collins has already lost this election.
"The fact is, many people are too moral to vote for someone who has most likely to have broken the law. The only question that remains is if enough people vote for me or if we let the district go to a Democrat."
While police had told Piegza that he must stand with the rest of the protesters, Piegza stated that he doesn't want to be counted as a protester due to the fact that he supports the rest of the Republican ticket.
"I'll be voting down-ballot red this election," Piegza said. "I recommend that others do the same, except obviously for NY -27. Voters are going to have to make a choice on whether they want to vote for a potential criminal in Chris Collins or for an ethical Republican.
