Cirignano Admits He Did It

The most reveiling details yet in the assault at the Worcester Anti-Gay rally have just been released in EdgeBoston.com, including Mr. Cirignano's admission to Worcester police that he had in fact pushed Mrs. Loy to the ground.

"Officers did not witness the incident, Worcester police spokesperson Sgt. Kerry Hazelhurst told EDGE Dec. 19. If they had, they would have placed Cirignano under arrest on a misdemeanor charge, he said. "He’s already admitted that he touched her," Hazelhurst reported. Under Massachusetts law, a person can be charged with assault and battery by merely touching another person if the touch is unwanted, Hazelhurst explained. "He pushed her down and he admits that as well."
