Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on Democrats’ Latest Attempt to Manipulate & Rig Elections Facing Imminent Vote in Legislature

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on New York Democrats’ Latest Attempt to Manipulate and Rig Local Elections Rumored to be Taken up for a Vote on Tuesday

May 26, 2022

This statement is in response to legislation S.6197C/A.8560C sponsored by Senator Skoufis and Assemblywoman Paulin that would move all local elections outside New York City to even years. This bill is rumored to be moved through Rules and brought up for a vote of the full Democrat-supermajority legislature on Tuesday, a mere 48 hours before the close of the 2022 legislative session. 

“New York Democrats are at it again, working to sneak through legislation that would illegally seize power and upend our entire election system in New York. They will stop at nothing to manipulate the system to rig themselves into total and permanent power. Kathy Hochul said it herself that her mission is to ‘wipe out the Republican Party in New York’ and this outrageous legislation is a consolation prize after their illegal gerrymander was resoundingly defeated by the courts. New Yorkers of all political stripes who care about a strong democracy and accountability in government should be vociferously opposed to this cynical and unconstitutional scheme. We are urging all New Yorkers to immediately call their legislators and Governor Hochul to make their voices heard, and we are preparing once again to fight this with every tool at our disposal.”
