WHO: Claudia Tenney, GOP Chair Nick Langworthy, area law enforcement officials and local leaders in the Southern Tier


1. Anthony Brindisi voted against a resolution to honor George Floyd and condemn “defund the police” pushes, rioting, looting, and the destruction of property including historical statues.

2. Brindisi also supported Pelosi’s anti-police bill,H.R.7120, which would:

2a. Allow trial lawyers like Brindisi to sue police officers personally, making them financially liable, even though they are already subject to disciplinary and criminal sanctions for potential misconduct.

2b. Make every accusation against any officer, even unproven or false ones, public on an internet database. This opens the door to unwarranted harassment against police for false allegations.

2c. Ban law enforcement agencies from receiving defense surplus items and equipment free of charges.

According to the Defense Logistics Agency agencies in the 22nd District have received $3 million in equipment from this program while the Troopers have received millions more, resulting in taxpayer savings.

Items include thirty-five (35) first-aid kits for the Norwich police, and radar detectors for the city of Oneida in Madison County, and heart defibrillators/resuscitators for the Endicott police department. New York State Troopers have also received valuable surplus equipment including binoculars, tool kits, helicopters, and a cargo plane.
