In a desperate campaign, Cuomo hurls false charges of anti-Semitism, reminiscent of his history of homophobia


Facing an electoral revolt against establishment politicians, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's campaign falsely accused his progressive political rival Cynthia Nixon of anti-Semitism.



  • EDITORIAL : Three decades later, "Vote For Cuomo, Not The Homo" mailer resurfaces The offensive slogan originally dates back to the Democratic Party primary in the 1977 New York City mayoral race when Andrew Cuomo was managing his father's campaign against Ed Koch, but the Cuomo camp used the slogan again during the lingering whisper campaign five years later, in the 1982 New York gubernatorial race. [Progress Queens]


Some mob families have succession plans. So does the Queens Machine.


EDITORIAL : Any political transition of power that lends legitimacy to the ways that the Queens Machine has been allowed to corrupt democratic functions will fail to restore the public's dwindling faith in Government institutions.

Today, Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are Co-Endorsing Each Other

Hi there,

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a progressive woman of color, who is foresaking all corporate PAC donations, who is championing issues that all politicians have forgotten : like fighting for jobs guarantee programs to address the wealth and income inequality that is wreaking havoc on New York City, like fighting gentrification and saving and expanding public housing, like fighting for a "Medical For All" healthcare plan to finally treat healthcare as a human right. These are progressive values that should appeal to all of us. It shouldn't take decades for us to bring about progress to our lives. It only takes political courage.

Crowley: A Campaign in Crisis - Debate No-Show, ICE Hypocrisy and Media Avalanch

Queens Against Crowley

A Campaign in Crisis : Debate No-Show, Immigration Hypocrisy, and an Avalanche of Criticism



Once Considered Untouchable, Crowley's Campaign Starts to Unravel

Hi there,

As the campaign for the 14th Congressional district in New York reaches its final week, the Ocasio campaign has hit its stride, while Crowley (who has never faced a serious primary challenge), on the other hand, appears to be collapsing from pressure.

As media attention turns to Crowley's years of corruption, many have taken to Twitter to spread the news.

Journalists and activists have been raising questions about Crowley's hypocrisy of voting for ICE, but then subsequently "protesting" it, the fact that he was a no-show at a recent debate in the Bronx, and the recent news that Crowley hired a Republican lobbyist to help him raise funds.

Ocasio Scores a Win in Debate Against Opponent Joseph Crowley

Highlights from the June 15th Debate:
Quotes from Ocasio



Ocasio Scores Major Win Against Crowley on Issues That Matter Most to Queens and Bronx Voters

Hi there,

On June 15th, NY1 hosted a debate between Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Congressman Joseph Crowley. Ocasio's progressive positions had Crowley, a Corporate Democrat, on the defensive almost the entire time. You can watch the full debate here.

With a win under her belt, Ocasio positions herself for one of the biggest political upsets of 2018.

Queens Against Crowley

Here are a few selected quotes from the post:

"Not all democrats are the same, and I am proud to be the only Democrat in this race that rejects all corporate money, and champions and advances improved and expanded medicare for all, a federal jobs guarantee, tuition free public college, and the abolition of ICE"

"What I think is really important, in a district that is 85% democrat, overwhelmingly working class, and 70% people of color, we deserve a working class champion."

"Corporations and corporate PAC's are really the real problem. About 99% of my opponents donations come from corporations, big money and lobbyist groups, and 80% of all of my donations to my campaign are less than $200"

Joe Crowley is not a fan of Bronx voters

Afraid of Bronx Voters:
Joe Crowley's Race Problem



Joe Crowley Once Hired a Lobbyist to Get Bronx Voters Out of His District

Hi there,

Congressman Joe Crowley claims to represent both Queens and the Bronx, but back in 2011 he tried to get Bronx voters removed from his district. According to one article, it was because that part of his distrist was heavily Latino, and this would make him vulerable to a primary challenge. The hiring of lobbyists, notably, those connected to the disgraced Sheldon Silver, showed Crowley's contempt for the Bronx.

Now, with an upcoming primary election on June 26th, Bronx voters have a chance to elect someone who actually wants to represent them.

Here is an excerpt from our recent post:

A recent tweet by journalist Ryan Grim revealed to many for the first time that, back in 2011, Joseph Crowley (Establishment-NY) hired a lobbyist to remove the Bronx from his Congressional district. The article Grim linked to explained that Crowley had concerns about that section of Bronx's demographic makeup, which is mainly Latino. Apparently, Crowley thought that such a dense concentration of People of Color would have made him vulnerable if he would ever have to face-off against a Latino challenger in the "democratic" primaries. Unfortunately for Crowley, that part of the Bronx remained within the 14th Congressional district, alongside large portions of Queens, some similarly with large minority populations, and while the two boroughs might be divided by the East River, this year, they are uniting against Crowley.

NYCHA Can Win This - Queens Against Crowley 2018

NYCHA Can Win This for Queens and the Bronx



With NYCHA in crisis, it's time to #FireBossCrowley

Hi there,

You might have read yesterday that the city settled a Federal probe into the mismanagement of NYCHA, yet no one was held accountable. For years federal funding to NYCHA has been dwindling, and corporate Democrats like Joe Crowley have avoided taking blame, even as they work to privatize affordable housing through Section 8. Please check out this excerpt from our recent article about how NYCHA residents could stop the games and get actual reform:

For decades corrupt politicians have completely ignored the needs of NYCHA. Everyone – from Rudolph Giuliani to Michael Bloomberg to Andrew Cuomo to Bill de Blasio to Joseph Crowley – has taken NYCHA residents for granted. Periodically, politicians have given a few crumbs to public housing residents, by fixing up a playground or putting in security cameras, and then counted on the votes of public housing residents come election time. Politicians show up to public events for photo-ops with after school programs, pretend to be on the side of working class and low-income families, and then they go and meet with lobbyists to pass legislation for Big Real Estate and Wall Street to exploit public assets for private profit.

THE STATE OF NYCHA

Despite what the Democrats in power say, NYCHA is in a complete crisis. Just yesterday, a settlement was reached demanding that the city pay $2.2 billion dollars after a federal probe into lead paint issues, repairs backlogs, negligence, and more. This comes after former head of NYCHA, Shola Olatoye, stepped down for lying about her knowledge of false inspection certificates – where the agency knowingly and deliberately sat on information for months while thousands of families were exposed to lead paint. A crime for which probably no one has been held responsible.

Fighting For Reform And Accountibility In Queens #FireBossCrowley

Hi there,

We wanted to welcome you to our new blog and website. Please check out the excerpt from a page we published yesterday:

 

A brief, recent history of the corruption of the Queens Machine, and of other County Committee chairs

In the twenty years that Joseph Crowley (Establishment-NY) has now been in the U.S. Congress and in the twelve years he has been chair of Queens Democrats, he has ascended to become chair of the House Democratic Conference. Word amongst lobbyists is that Crowley is within reach of becoming Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives should the establishment Democrats take back control of the House.

As voters go to the polls on June 26 for the Democratic Party primary and as Democrats actually consider Crowley for House Speaker, let's look back at how Queens Democratic Party leaders have used their power.
