Tea party volunteers in the northeast Ohio area have uncovered some interesting facts about the individuals who were involved in the recent apparent confrontation between protesters at the Romney campaign’s event on Thursday, July 5 in Parma, Ohio. The Cleveland Plain Dealer posted the following picture and corresponding video of Richard Brysac (should be spelled ‘Brysacz’), allegedly of Parma, putting a bottle in the mouth of Al Neal, allegedly of Canton, in order to forcibly quiet Mr. Neal’s chanting over top of Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty’s speech at the rally.
Upon reading The Plain Dealer’s photo gallery of the event, one would be inclined to believe that Brysacz is a Romney supporter while Neal is there protesting against Pawlenty. However, in a letter from Medina County Friends and Neighbors sent out to Ohio liberty group leaders, a quite different case for what actually occurred is made:
The fellow [Neal] who ended up with things stuffed in his mouth had been very docile, as if he expected and perhaps even welcomed being abused by a Romney supporter [Brysacz]. He informed the media about the SEIU front group with which he was affiliated (the video went viral through the Progressive media less than an hour later). The media did not look him up (as we did), to discover that there is nobody registered to vote by the name he gave, in Stark County much less in Canton where he said was from. We suspect he is from another state. The “Romney supporter” [Brysacz] who tried (rather gently, we thought) to stuff things into his mouth on the other hand, is a local. He is a very conscientious voter, and has voted in the last 3 Democratic Party primaries.
Research by tea party volunteers in the northeast uncovers that no voters by the name of ‘Al Neal’ were to be found in the state of Ohio:
Additionally, they found that Richard Brysacz, indeed from Parma, Ohio is a very active voter – as a Democrat, that is.
Tea party leaders in the northeast Ohio area have also confirmed that none of them have heard of Richard Brysacz before.
Medina County Friends and Neighbor’s concluded their letter with the following:
In April, we posted an article warning about Occupy Wall Street Training sessions that were training people to disrupt tea party meetings and rallies. This incident appears to be a product of that training. Beware of paid actors and staged incidents and be sure to collect as much information as possible about all participants if you witness anything like this at events.
