Who paid for Roseff's signs?
The signs are an outright lie. They read: "Stop the gas tax hike. Vote No on Question 2."
The truth, acknowledged by everyone, is that the a No vote on Question 2 would not undo the gas tax increase that went into effect on November 1st. The signs were part of a classic Big Lie campaign.
That campaign failed. On Tuesday, November 8th, in addition to electing Donald Trump as President of the United States, voters in Sussex County voted YES on Question Two by a margin of twenty percentage points. Statewide, the YES campaign won by nine points.
On Saturday, November 12th, Harvey Roseff showed up at Newton Green to stage a one-person demonstration at the location where two rallies had been previously called and cancelled. Like the anti-Trump demonstrations held around the country, Roseff appeared to be attempting to ignore the election just decided, planting about a dozen of the above signs around Newton Green.
A closer examination of these signs revealed that something was missing: The disclaimer. Election paraphernalia advocating for or against a Ballot Question is covered under laws administered by the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (NJELEC). A disclaimer is mandatory.
Thousands of signs like the dozen or so Harvey Roseff was posting on Newton Green appeared across the state in the run-up to the November 8th election. What organization, politician, political committee, media corporation, or individual paid for them to be printed, distributed, and posted?
