Laura Ebert, an economics lecturer at the State University in New York, was caught stealing GOP yard signs on local property owner Laura McGovern’s security cameras.

Directly after the incident, police charged Elbert with misdemeanor larceny for stealing the Republican promotional signs. In a comment to Breitbart, McGovern denounced Elbert’s actions for betraying the “principles of free expression that academics are supposed to defend.”

“I kind of thought it was funny in a way, because of the times, you hear about stories of the professors being very liberal and not allowing people with conservative or Republican views to speak…almost like trying to shut down my voice, which seems antithetical to what a professor should be doing because we should all have a voice,” she said.
