Meet Eddie Kasprzyk, self-proclaimed campaign supporter of Republican Lynne Dixon.
Hot one out there at the #CheektowagaParade. Still wondering why @markpoloncarz is wasting taxpayer money on his hired security while he was in attendance? Any idea how much that is costing the tax payers of Erie County today? #VoteLynne pic.twitter.com/Jk7WvMsRmR

Eddie is a ‘big tool’. He’s been caught and banned by Twitter in the recent past for creating create fake and completely misleading memes/videos similar to those we’ve already determined misleading or fake by the Dixon campaign and another Republican friend of his, Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw.

Eddie recently tried to spread this meme of what claims to be an Erie County road in disrepair at the hands of current and soon to be re-elected Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz:

At a quick glance, one could easily think this road was somewhere in Erie County, but taking a little deeper look, it’s obvious this road isn’t even in New York State.
So we used a ‘bigger tool’, one that is considerably more useful than Eddie ( Reverse Image Search) to determine in about 10 seconds that this picture was clearly not from Erie County, New York.
The picture seems to originate from numerous Russian troll farm websites that have been used since 2016 to depict roads in Bulgaria, Sweden, Canada and now thanks to the Dixon campaign, Erie County. Even the same unoriginal wording in the Dixon campaign meme has been used in the past:
They are desperate and it shows.
