Westchester | Ex-congressional candidate arrested at Journal News; he had been banned from the site

From a story in The Journal News in Westchester, N.Y.:

A former congressional candidate who had accused the Journal News of painting him as a racist was arrested at the newspaper on trespass and harassment violations yesterday afternoon.

Jim Russell, 57, had been seen on the property a number of times over the past several weeks and had been warned, through his lawyer, to stay away.

In a lawsuit that was later dismissed, Russell had accused the paper of portraying him as a racist during his unsuccessful 2010 campaign.

Russell, in essays that emerged during the campaign, had criticized interracial marriage and touted the benefits of studies linking race to IQ.


  1. The Journal News in Westchester County, is not a perfect newspaper because they are embedded inside the swampy cesspool that plagues Westchester County Residents for years, "Political Public Corruption" and coverups. They have supported the Secret Society that is embedded inside the "Who do you know club," it’s a Political Society inside the Board of Elections and all the Political Parties that are involved in the Political Elections. The Secret Society has covered up for the Former Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro, as she terrorized everyday citizens, putting false charges on them, while using the local news media and newspapers, Journal News, New York Times, New York Post, Daily News, News 12 Westchester, and Fox 5 News to discredit good people with consistent character, respectful family names, and respectful United States Citizens. Jeanine Pirro would dictate to the “News Media” for one reason only, she had no substantial evidence against the innocent she was accusing, and that is why she had to paint them in a “Racist” light for the public eye, she had to win the case, and she did that by polluting the minds of the readers. The Journal News is guilty of doing that, and I know the truth because they did it to me, I was innocent, I’m Barbara Ricci, my title, Mrs. Westchester County, New York USA. I was one of Jeanine Pirro’s political favors, she thought she would ruin my political career by putting false charges on me, no chance, today, I’m National Press, and I’m here to tell my story. This will be in my book “I’m Still Standing” and I expose all of them by name. The Journal News writers and editors have no morals, nor do the New York Times writers, they’re all politically connected and evil.

    When you read an article in The Journal News, you’ll read their version, if you can read between the lines, you’ll figure it out, when you stop and think, is this truth or dictation.

    I would like to interview Mr. Jim Russell, I am sure he would like to tell his side of the story. Everyone on this earth has an explanation, and I want to hear his.

    The Journal News is guilty and should be held accountable for polluting the minds of their readers, and for writing dictation, meanwhile, opposing to the truth.

    Jim Russell, should report his attorney to every bar association for client confidentiality and talking to the press.

    When someone like “Mr. Jim Russell” is in politics, and he is not part of the Secret Society, they want to ruin his character and discredit him, therefore, they label him a Racist. Racist is a strong word, it means hate, and I personally don’t think Mr. Jim Russell hates anyone, I want to hear Mr. Jim Russell speak, not a news reporter who is dictated to by the Secret Society of Corrupt Politicians.

    “The truth is the most powerful weapon in the word.”

  2. Photo is poorly exposed- this is shot by a professional?

  3. RTC toned - plenty of detail that doesn't matter and you're left with a flat, no contrast photo. Looks like the toned version was put online instead of keeping the pretty version.
