ISSUE 76: Fake Ass Democrats

Traitors among us.

This week we’re taking a refresher course on the Independent Democratic Conference—& taking a look at a new scandal dogging these already disgraced NY legislators. Though Republicans are numerically a minority in the NY Senate, eight state senators ran as Democrats but voted as Republicans for years, blocking the DREAM Act, single-payer healthcare, real rent reform… the list goes on. Now we’re diving into a campaign finance fiasco that put these turncoat “Dems” in hot water ahead of the September Democratic primaries. And of course, we’re checking out some of the fabulous progressive broads running to unseat these traitors.
