What is wrong with Incumbent Maloney?
- Voted for the Iraq War
- Co-Sponsored H.R. 1697, which makes it a felony to call for the boycott of Israel, restricting your First Amendment Rights to political expression.
- Just like Trump, Maloney is against President Obama's historic nuclear deal with Iran.
- Blamed Afghanistan from the floor of the US Congress for 9/11, while wearing a full-length burka.
Maloney Muni Bond Buy Scandal
In 2016, Rep. Carolyn Maloney co-authored a bill to encourage banks to buy government-backed bonds, and then bought up to $1.3 million such bonds in nearly two dozen transactions herself. The House passed Maloney's bill, which was cosponsored by Rep. Luke Messer (R- IN.), on Feb. 1, 2016. It awaits consideration by the Senate. Maloney's office insists that the purchases were coincidental and made by an investment adviser, and not Maloney, but an independent ethics watchdog called it suspicious.
Anti-Islamic? Or just ridiculous?
Rep. Maloney donned a burka, on the floor of the House, and blamed Afghanistan for 9/11.
Yes, this really happened. Yes, she actually said these things:
"I salute the Bush Administration for balancing war with compassion."
"Mr. Speaker, the attacks of September 11 broke the hearts and boggled the minds of most every American. It left us all wondering just what kind of people would turn planes into bombs and slaughter thousands of people simply because they showed up for work. The answer is the Taliban, the terrorists among the Taliban, the terrorists they harbor, and the terrorists they refuse to surrender."
- Rep. Carolyn Maloney, October, 2001
Wait, Carolyn....Afghanistan? Whoops! We Invaded the wrong country. Sorry World! It wasn't the Taliban who did 9/11, at all. It's tough to be a trigger-happy centrist reactionary! Even in a burka. Sorry, too, to the 172,000 Afghan people we killed.
