Congressman Slams “Hypocrisy” Of NY State Legislature

FALCONER – Outgoing Congressman Tom Reed is blasting what he calls the hypocrisy of the Democrat-controlled State Legislature as they continue to establish the new Congressional boundaries. 

Reed recently held a press conference to discuss infrastructure. During the conference, Reed explained how he was endorsing Joe Sempolinski, a former District Director for the Congressman, to replace him.

The Republican, however, says that he suspects the state will have even fewer GOP representatives due to gerrymandering.

“The hypocrisy on display by this partisan politics of Albany is staggering to me,” Reed said. “A party, the Democratic party that is supposedly against gerrymandering across the country, but not across in our backyard, in New York, when it means the difference of being able to secure the majority in the House when it comes down to the seats they’re going to draw here in New York.”

“The Governor (Kathy Hochul) talked about it publicly, that she was going to use the power of her office and the Legislature to help the Democrat Party stay in control of the U.S House of Representatives by the gerrymandered maps of New York.”

The Corning native says he suspects the GOP will drop from eight to four seats.

Reed says that he’ll continue to stick with his self-imposed 12-year term limit in office.
