Clueless Democrat: Her Slip Is Showing

Is New York locked with California in a battle to see which state can generate the worst government?

Here’s New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, debating the Republican candidate, Rep. Lee Zelden. Zelden keeps trying to discuss New York’s soaring crime rate, eminently attributable to the Democrats’ “bail reform” policy that keeps violent criminals out of jail and allows them to continue to prey on people.

And what does Gov. Hokum have to say about it?

“I don’t know why that’s so important to you.”

Egad, the woman’s off her rocker. Why should getting knifed or clubbed or pushed onto the tracks while you’re waiting for a subway seem important to anyone? Hokum could easily fire any district attorney who refuses to prosecute criminals–but she doesn’t. Assault and injure someone on the sidewalk, and 15 minutes later they turn you loose again.

Insane public policy. And that’s what Democrats have to offer.

It’d be nice if Hokum encountered one of those subway crimes she just laughs off.
