Michael Ryan is reporting in The Daily Mail a Greene County Court judge has removed himself from the criminal case against Windham Town Supervisor Stacy Post. Judge Charles Tailleur stepped aside reportedly after determining he knew a number of the state's witnesses following a review of the grand jury minutes in the case. Tailleur made the announcement prior to a recent pretrial conference. The case will now be heard by Columbia County Supreme Court Justice Richard Mott. Post is charged with 30 felony counts of eavesdropping, official misconduct and possession of eavesdropping devices. State police allege Post placed audio and video recording devices in Windham Town Hall to monitor the conversations of town employees and visitors. Post served as the town's police chief for five years before she was elected supervisor in November 2013. She is represented by attorney Dennis Schlenker of Albany.
