‘Impeach Obama’ Camp Parks In Mahwah
Campaigning group sets up display outside the post office Wednesday
An anti-Obama group of volunteers working on behalf of the LaRouche PAC, a political network that is calling for, among other things, the impeachment of President Barack Obama, set up shop outside the post office on East Ramapo Ave. in Mahwah Wednesday. The group hung up signs, handed out paperwork and spoke to passersby and PO patrons about their political positions, and advocated for a slate of LaRouche candidates.
“We are set up here because we have a candidate running in New Jersey’s 5th Congressional District, and Mahwah is a part of that,” volunteer Linda Leppig, of Hackensack, said. “We have been organizing since April of 2009, and we usually come [to Mahwah] once every few months.”
The PAC’s political position supports the views of Lyndon LaRouche. The group has made headlines for controversial signs and political handouts.
In Mahwah, LaRouche volunteers set up signs saying “Stop World War III: Impeach Obama,” and photos of the President donning a Hitler-like mustache.
According to Diane Sare, the “LaRouche Democrat” running for NJ’s 5th District congressional seat, “these displays have been having a big impact in towns across the district. We also have about 30 volunteers going door-to-door every weekend on our behalf.” Sare said the Bergen County LaRouche camp has about 150 volunteers working on its campaign.
According to the two volunteers in Mahwah Wednesday – Leppig and fellow Hackensack resident Jeff Rebello – the PAC will continue to campaign in the township. “We will be back,” Leppig said. “Mahwah is an important part of the 5th District.”
