Ex-Gov. David Paterson on crime in NYC: “I never felt as unsafe as I do now.”
The former governor is appalled by his own party on crime.
The best governor we’ve had in decades.
The New York Post reports that former Gov. David Paterson (D) told John Catsimatidis on WABC Radio’s “Cats Roundtable” today:
“For the first time in my life, even in the late ’80s and ’90s when the crime rate was killing 2,000 people a year, I never felt as unsafe as I do now just walking around.”
“I never felt as unsafe as I do now just walking around.”
“You’re hearing about an assault on the subway almost every other day,”
He warned that if things don’t change, Democrats could be in for a beating this November.
On the same show few weeks ago, Paterson chastised Democrats for complaining about illegal immigrants being sent by Republican governors to Martha’s Vineyard and New York City, saying they were like liberal integrationists in the 70s, who were outraged by segregation — except in their neighborhoods:
“They were progressives. They were liberals. But they didn’t want anybody moving into their neighborhoods. Someone else was going to have to live with the African-Americans and Hispanics who moved into those neighborhoods.”
I have a great idea, Gov. Paterson: ENDORSE LEE ZELDIN FOR GOVERNOR!
