At a press conference at which four members of the current City Council endorsed Kristen Dart in the race for Saratoga Springs Public Safety Commissioner, Ms. Dart attacked one of her opponents, Tim Coll. In her most unfortunate accusation, she quoted a judge regarding the prosecution of four men convicted of terrorism. The judge slammed the investigators and prosecutors for entrapping the men.
Regrettably, Ms. Dart failed to mention that Mr. Coll had no role in that case. He did head a different investigation of two men in Albany who were convicted of terrorism, and that conviction was unanimously reaffirmed in an appeal to the Federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
