defecating on Cheasty's driveway...there's a simple explanation for this: Cheasty is a lawyer and he's Cheasty, afterall!

@Briget: Ah, the "because he's a lawyer" rationalization. Boring and so easy. Yawn.
thorn December 16, 2013 at 03:44 PM
you missed something... he's not "just a lawyer" - he is one of the lawyers representing the City against the Bulb campers... now we have a connection...
Peggy McQuaid December 16, 2013 at 08:08 PM
Thorn, could you please give your source regarding Mr. Cheasty representing the City as I have not seen that anywhere. No matter who one represents or their politics no one deserve this treatment and I am sorry this happened to Robert.
thorn December 16, 2013 at 10:23 PM
now that you mention it Peggy, this could be worse than i thought- Cheasty may not be involved with the Bulb at all BUT he is featured in that cartoon about the Bulb, that is where i get the idea.. I know Amber and others out there know that cartoon well as she made a big deal of how she was "famous now" ,,, SO - Cheasty may not be involved at all but I still am betting the poops are related to the Bulb
thorn December 16, 2013 at 10:26 PM
again, this could be wrong and resulting in misdirected anger, but i would bet it has something to do with the poops (see my post above) >>> http://albany.patch.com/groups/jim-bellers-blog/p/the-battle-of-the-bulb-champion-chicken-fight

As he heads Citizens for East Shore Parks, which certainly wants to see a resolution where "campers" no longer block turning the Bulb over as parkland, he'd presumably be seen as "the enemy" by the sort of individual who'd see defecatory gifting as political speech. Frankly, in this age of apathy, it's a breath of fresh air to find someone actually giving a sh!t... :-)
