Joe Crowley is not a fan 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.
