What was Stefanini thinking?

I am very surprised to read in the paper about John's actions at the Library. Caught on film destroying Mayoral candidate material left on a table in the lobby. Norma Shulman should have know not to leave that stuff there... BUT.. it's a crime to mess with a ballot and he knows that. 
The other side of this unfortunate move on John's part is that the Democratic Town Wide Committee is now firmly split by John running and the group who is helping get Spicer on the ballot. Long time loyalties are being tested. For the most part, every since Pam Richardson was forced out, the DTC has picked one candidate to back.
Without any more ballot violations, this could spell Spicer's victory over John in November. As many old timers know, John's connection to disgraced House Speaker Tom Finneran, will haunt him forever.

What was this guy thinking? And he wants to run the whole town? This is a basic commonsense thing NOT to do. Will we see the tape or will it go missin?

Stefanini looks like he is in full blown damage control mode. Is Framingham getting a glimpse of the true Stefanini?

Here's the Sate Law regarding LibraryGate. You decide.

Section 11: Wilful alteration, mutilation, or destruction of nomination papers, etc.; subscribing to false statements

Section 11.

Looks like Stefanini is going to get a walk on this. Here is what I think, not that anyone asked. It was a mistake for Stefanini to do what he did, that is a given. What makes me even more inclined to not vote for him though is that he is not man enough to take the heat for his mistakes, instead he tried to place the blame on someone else, even though cameras caught him in the act. So, what is he going to do when there are no cameras holding him accountable? I have no respect for men with no balls.

well put.
This will hurt his chances big time in my opinion. Either one is ethical or not.

Did the democrats not learn anything in the last presidential election? They put forth a flawed candidate in Hillary Clinton, and they got beat. Now they are going to rally behind another even more flawed candidate in Steffanini, and they expect to win. The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect different results. When are the Dems in Framingham going to learn?
