Top Rensselaer County Republican aide arrested

CRIST

The top aide for Republicans on the county Legislature was arrested over the weekend for a physical confrontation he had with his 17-year-old son.
Rich Crist is charged with two counts of misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child and one count of harassment, a violation.
According to sources, there has been a months-long disciplinary issue with the 17-year-old that included involvement by law enforcement. The issue culminated in the early morning hours Friday in the parking lot of the Castleton Elementary School and included use of a family vehicle and efforts to get it back. It’s unclear who called Schodack Police to the scene, but in the end Crist was arrested on the abovementioned charges.
Crist, who is the county’s de facto Republican Party chairman, was released on his own recognizance. He will be arraigned at a later date since town police could not find a judge to perform the arraignment. When contacted, he declined comment.
Crist makes 95,000-plus in his role as legislative liaison, a position he has held for some two decades. He is also the Republicans’ most prolific operative in the rough and tumble world of Rensselaer County politics. He has come under fire in the past for allegedly doing political work out of the county office building using county staffers. He has also worked as a consultant on a number of local judicial and other races as well as statewide and congressional campaigns and serves as the Schodack Republican chairman.
If I get more information, I will pass it along.

  2. I do not know the man and I am not a political person. But this does sound like a guy that has a problem child that needs to be straightened out. He probably did what you could do in 1965, kick the brat in the ass and make him mind his dad. But today he will probably be dragged thru the courts and be lectured on abusing an ungrateful little brat punk.

    1. Maybe Crist's kid is a problem child because his father is a lying scumbag.

    2. No, you are wrong. This is classic child abuse. Don't make excuses for this big footed monster.

    1. Hey Rich, I hear Joel Abelove is looking for work.

    2. I think the key word was a GOOD LAWYER!!! I'm surprised Mr. Abelove is still employed with NYS being a republican. And completely against Cuomo on the SAFE ACT. Funny isn't it????

  4. Rich Crist has been gleefully trashing other people's reputations for years, on the taxpayer dime no less, so it's no surprise that most of Rensselaer County is enjoying this story.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

  5. "They couldn't find a judge to perform the arraignment."

    Well no kidding. That's because they all paid Crist to get elected in the first place.

  13. Rich crist and chief peter are friends and fellow republican/conservatives. You can see by peters comments that he was minimizing the events that led up to Crists arrest.chief peter needs to remove himself and his department from this investigation. Otherwise this will lead to the same old solution that has protected crist in the past. While we are at it, why is a person that plead guilty to crimes even able to hold the position of police chief? Answer: because rich crist says he can.

    3. Ken Z is the official judge of the Twerkathon, he's promised to limit his speech to four hours or less. Chief Tedesco is running security. Kevin McCashion will be outside tweeting live with Vito and the hookers. Harry will write a big check from the water and sewer fund. Kathy Jimino will stride in and deem it all an unfunded mandate. Mark McGrath will enforce the jorts-preferred dress code and the evening's finale will be Rich's serenade to the ladies of "Every Breath You Take".

    2. If the Republicans fear Crist then why do they continue to allow him to wield the power of a dictator. The legislators who pay his exorbitant salary are afraid to speak up to him. As an example, the only reason Reid became chairman is because he would never disagree with Crist. Sad scenario.

      Delete
    3. Who cares? I'd rather see a scumbag like Crist running the GOP than someone credible. His behavior will eventually trip him up for good, it will be great to watch.

  31. Don't worry Rich. Lou Desso is the new Deputy Mental Health Director, college degree waived! Set up a date and I'm sure he can fix all your temper problems. Not sure he can make you an example your family can look up to. A life change needed there I'm afraid.
