Harrison Pizza Scandal Popular on Facebook

HARRISON, N.Y. - Tuesday's arraignment of Harrison Democratic Party district leader Maria Polera generated significant traffic and interest on Facebook across Westchester County. Several sites across TheDailyWestchester.net received reader comments on the story throughout the day.

"Alleged sounds very childish," Alice Feldman said on The Daily Armonk's Facebook page.

Polera pleaded not guilty to charges that she ordered unsolicited pizza deliveries to the home of Mayor and Supervisor Joan Walsh and was released without bail.

"I think she needs help," Dorothy Hoefling-Aguiar said on The Daily Tarrytown's page .

She ran for receiver of taxes on the same ticket as Walsh twice in the past five years and lost both times.

Gary Murphy asked on The Daily Bedford's page how many pizzas Polera ordered and if she paid for the food in the end.

Walsh said she received unsolicited pizza orders and one additional visit with Chinese food as many as 25 times in the last six to eight months. Local restaurants that were victimized by the prank include Halstead Avenue's Pizza 2000 and Domino's Pizza and said they lost money with each incident.

"If it was from Sal's in Mamaroneck, I'd say she deserves the mayor's thanks," David L. Lewis said in response to the post.
