Legislator Chris Allen, the self proclaimed "most respected elected official in Ulster County" was arrested and charged with misdemeanor Assault according to State Police in Catskill.
He is accused of assaulting a teacher in front of her students causing a nasty cut on the back of her neck. Incredibly, Allen claims the wound was self-inflicted for political purposes. An asinine explanation for sure.
Let's see if either the Republicans or the Democrats call for his resignation.
As far as I am concerned, he needs to stop accusing the victim and be a man and admit what he did. Then, he should step down as a legislator.
