A registered sex offender and his spouse recorded video of Little Silver Republican Chairman Stuart Van Winkle asking them if they had granted Rick Brandt permission to put campaign signs at their business. They then spun the encounter as illegal harassment and posted the video on YouTube. Brandt linked to the video in a lengthy press release on Thursday in which he depicts himself as a victim of “the dark underbelly” of Little Silver politics.
RedBankGreen depicted Will and Ingrid Garcia as “mom and pop” owners of a detail shop located at the overpriced Shell gas station across the street from the Little Silver train station. A brief MMM investigation revealed that Will Garcia is a registered Tier 2 sex offender listed in both the New Jersey and Florida law enforcement databases. He was convicted of sexual contact with two juvenile females.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Little Silver, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2019 elections, Bob Neff, Ingrid Garcia, Little Silver, Megan's Law, Monmouth County News, Registered Sex Offender, Rick Brandt, Stuart Van Winkle, William Garcia, William Garcia JR | 17 Comments »
