New Jersey operative on trial in Massachusetts

New Jereyan Larry Cirignano, a former New Jersey political operative who has run Catholic Citizenship, an issue advocacy group that opposes Abortion and gay marriage, is currently on trial in Massachusetts. He is accused of assaulting a protester at a Worcester, MA rally against civil unions last December. Cirignano, who was an aide to the late Congressman Dean Gallo (a pro-choice Republican), allegedly shoved the protester, Sarah Loy, and knocked her to the ground. Yesterday, a state Judge dropped a civil right charge against Cirignano.
