New York’s Senator Gillibrand has been curiously silent on the biggest political scandal to rock New York since, well you know, since the last two or three political scandals to rock New York in the last year or so.
Anyway, Gillibrand broke her silence after her Republican challenger Wendly Long called Gillibrand a hypocrit (Gasp!) by claiming that Republicans were waging a war on women, while saying absolutely nothing about her fellow Dem Sheldon Silver’s approval of a secret deal to silence Vito Lopez’s sexual harassment accusers.
Gillibrand retorted that it wasn’t hypocritical since Chuck Shumer told her not to say anything about it. No wait. That’s isn’t right.
Rather, Gillibrand said that Lopez should have paid the settlement himself out of all the money that he looted from the Bushwick Medical Center.
Hmm. That doesn’t sound quite right either.
Anyway, Gillibrand stopped short of saying that anyone should resign, pending a full investigation of the matter.
Way to take a stand for women everywhere Senator Gillibrand!
With politicians like you, New York can stand proud once more.
