NEW HARTFORD – Tonight, Albany politician Anthony Brindisi will be fundraising and hobnobbing with New York City elite, with some paying up to $25,000 to gain access to Brindisi.
“While Brindisi holds fundraisers with corruption kingpin Governor Andrew Cuomo and continues to rake in money from New York City liberals, it makes you wonder what kind of favors these rich liberals expect in return for their $25,000? It would seem they are very confident Brindisi will rubberstamp the Pelosi agenda in Washington just like he rubberstamped Silver’s New York City agenda in Albany,” said Claudia Tenney campaign manager Raychel Renna.
Corrupt Governor Andrew Cuomo is raising money for his liberal mentor Anthony Brindisi. “The statement comes as Cuomo today will appear at a fundraiser for Democratic state Senate candidate Shelley Mayer in Manhattan. Mayer is running in a key and costly race for the Westchester County district vacated by County Executive George Latimer. The fundraiser for Mayer will dovetail with other Cuomo efforts for Democrats running for the state and the House of Representatives: On Friday, Cuomo will endorse Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda, who is running for an open Senate district in the Bronx. On Sunday, Cuomo will rally on Long Island for a Democratic takeover the Senate and Congress. Those will be followed by a high-dollar fundraising brunch for Mayer and fundraiser for Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, a Democrat running in a central New York congressional district against incumbent Republican Claudia Tenney. ‘The governor is intent on electing Democrats to the state senate to pass his agenda and shore up the blue wall at home, while also electing Democratic Congress members to fight Trump and his fellow Republicans’ anti-New York agenda,’ said a Democratic source. ‘He’s will to spend every ounce of his political capital to do so.’” (New York State of Politics, 04/18)
