ROUND LAKE — A Malta town board member is calling for the resignation of a zoning board member after photos showing her in the midst of the U.S. Capitol siege have been circulating online.
Malta Town Board member Timothy Dunn, a Republican, told the Times Union he spoke with the town's GOP chairman after photos were shared on social media sites by Saratoga County Democrats over the weekend. One image shows a woman being led off the Capitol grounds by police with her hands behind her back.
A GOP official in Saratoga County confirmed the pictures are of Sharon Pineo of Round Lake, a member of the Malta zoning board of appeals. The dispute in the GOP has been if Pineo was arrested or just escorted off Capitol grounds; there is no evidence the Times Union has found that she has been criminally charged in connection with the siege.

"While my understanding is that this individual has not been charged with a crime, the actions and intentions of the group that stormed the Capitol are reprehensible and not consistent with the values of our community," Dunn wrote in a Facebook post Sunday afternoon. "I've spoken with both the town supervisor and the GOP chair and have requested they ask for the resignation of this resident from the zoning board of appeals."
"I pray our community and our nation can start seeking paths to unity, not division. And for all of our sake, I hope this happens quickly," Dunn wrote.
And had this been BLM doing this the Dems would demand funding and payback and medals of honor.
Tell them to ESAD.
No doubt a RINO
Good point, even the Lib lawyers who burned up police cars were barely punished, or were they?
Worse, a Deep Stater.
The town is in upstate New York.
Freaking amazing that after this incident there is no trouble identifying people. But for 3 months in the summer everyone was just completely unknown.
Lived there. Republican is just an necessary title up there.
Timothy Dunn must be another Never-Trumper jerk.
This just st the start. If you donÃ¢ÂÂt say the right things going forward you could be banned, fired for exercising your free speech and so on. The sheep will go along with this and it will not end well for those of us who might disagree or have a different opinion.
What happened to FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION???? I didn’t know that Republicans were a TERRORIST GROUP!
Huh. Must have missed the right to assemble in the constitution.
That’s because they were conveniently authorized to wear masks this time. They are “good” (yes, the MAGA rally was partly portrayed as “maskless....oh my). Of course, they ALWAYS wear masks.
Jailed almost immediately - then the DA ordered them released.
Then the federal prosecutor ordered them rejailed.
Then a leftist judge said they were not a threat to the community and ordered them released pending judgement.
Saratoga County, Trump Country. Although the previous county GOP chair was being Kasich, not Trump.
just like RUSH inciting a riot and insurrection with his words, “Peaceful”.
