    NYC Mayor for Lee Zeldin? Former NYPD Inspector Believes Eric Adams ‘Pulls That Lever for Zeldin’ for Governor

    Published on

    A former member of the New York City Police Department stated on Thursday that Democratic Mayor Eric Adams might choose a Republican to lead his state in order to combat the city’s rife crime.

    Former NYPD Inspector Paul Mauro stated that having Republican Lee Zeldin in office would assist Adams meet one of the mayor’s main goals during an appearance on the Fox News program “America’s Newsroom,” according to Fox News.

    Adams won’t publicly criticize Democratic incumbent Kathy Hochul, according to Mauro, but she might act differently behind closed doors.

    Regarding the departing Long Island congressman, Zeldin, Mauro stated, “I actually think on November 8th, when he goes into the booth, because he can’t publicly go against his base, I think Adams pulls that lever for Zeldin,”

    “Zeldin gives him the top cover he needs to do some of the stuff that he wants to be his legacy, which is fixing New York.”

    Mauro disputed Hochul’s assertions that banning guns will reduce crime.

    According to Fox News, he said “Unfortunately, Kathy Hochul believes that the only crimes that are being committed are these crimes with guns. And you have people who are afraid of being pushed in front of oncoming subway cars. They’re being stabbed, beaten to death on the street with hammers,”

    “America doesn’t have a long gun problem. America has a problem, particularly in our urban areas, with illegal handguns, and that’s what this is. And until our adults in the room are willing to recognize that that’s the problem, there’s going to be no way to solve it.” Mauro added.

    According to Mauro, Zeldin would likely make adjustments. Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan district attorney whose practices have come under fire from certain corporations for being too lenient on crime, could be fired as one potential adjustment.

    “He’s also said that he is going to declare a crime state of emergency, which allows him to put in policies that get him around the legislature.” according to Mauro.

    According to the New York Post, Zeldin debated Hochul on Tuesday, accusing her of failing to hear the pleas of New Yorkers who want to be safer than they now are.

    According to Zeldin, “My opponent thinks that right now there’s a polio emergency going on but there’s not a crime emergency — different priorities than I’m hearing from people right now,”

    “They’re not being represented from this governor — who still, to this moment … hasn’t talked about locking up anyone committing any crimes.”

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    As part of her response, Hochul said, “I don’t know why that’s so important to you.”

    Zeldin later said that remark “proves that she isn’t in touch with the people,” according to the Post.

    “It proves that she doesn’t represent the people because it should be first and foremost in her mind,” Zeldin said. CONTINUE READING…
