Democrat Primary Challenge: Drama in AD11
Back in June, Democrats in the 1st Congressional District had a primary where the winner employed corrupt de Blasio-style tactics to achieve her goal, specifically importing Manhattan residents to vote in a Suffolk County election. There is now more drama in the Democratic Party as their incumbent in New York's 11th Assembly District, Kimberly Jean-Pierre, is collecting a paycheck from party bosses and from taxpayers. To top off that revelation, Jean-Pierre is also facing a primary challenge.
Who Does Kimberly Jean-Pierre Work For?
Democrat Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre received paychecks from the Suffolk County Democratic Committee for the first six months of this year while simultaneously working for the New York State Assembly, where she should have been working for the interests of all the people in the 11th Assembly District, not just the Democrats living there.
Democratic primary challenger Jordan Wilson is calling into question Jean-Pierre's loyalties. Newsday reports:
“She’s supposed to represent the taxpayers, not take money from party leaders.”
Jean-Pierre's only rebuttal is that her work for the Democrat Party is "very part-time," chairing a committee registering students and younger voters to help Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.
The Democrats aren't fooling anyone: it's clear Kimberly Jean-Pierre is working for the interests of the Democratic Party, not her constituents!
Voters in the 11th Assembly District can't trust their current Assemblymember to serve the interests of anyone but herself. We have a chance to take this seat back, turning this currently blue seat red, in 2016.
