Today’s New York Daily News highlights the extreme measures Terry Gipson, Bill de Blasio and their ultra-liberal New York City allies will resort to in order to keep the 41st District Senate Seat out of the hands of someone who truly represents Hudson Valley values. After voting with New York City leadership 96 percent of the time, failing to condemn their exploitive and misogynistic mailers and now taking their dirty money, it’s clear Terry Gipson stands with the most out-of-touch members of New York City’s special interests.
If these allegations are true, today’s report includes potentially serious violations of state election law, including donors being directed to over-contribute to my opponent despite already reaching the maximum contribution limits. Since Terry has already exposed his lack of concern for ethics by voting to shut down the Moreland Commission, I will call today on the U.S. Attorney to immediately investigate if Terry Gipson and Putnam Democratic Committee Chairman Ken Harper knowingly and willfully attempted to hide the true identity of his donors to avoid contribution limits. Today’s reports make it even more clear that Terry and his New York City allies have only one agenda in mind and that won’t be an agenda for Hudson Valley families.
