Not-Friends of Elise Gather

It was a little cold in City Park yesterday, but that didn't stop a million people from turning out to hear the indictments against Elise.

a group of about 100 gathered on Saturday afternoon to express their discontent and publicly indict the congresswoman for her actions.

Yeah, don't believe the fake news. 

“I think we needed to expose Elise Stefanik’s voting record and the underlying consequences of these votes written in such legalese that they needed to be broken down,” said Agata Puccio Stanford, Glens Falls, the founder of The New Resistance USA. “She has refused to hold public town hall meetings. She has to be accountable to our questions as they come to her.”

Elise's supporters say how accessible she is.

At the same time, Stanford started visiting Stefanik, R-Willsboro, at her Glens Falls office to express her concerns. But Stefanik’s lack of response and public availability, led Stanford and others to take action.

Accessible like that phony baloney snake oil healthcare plan she and Ryan are pushing. 

“Representative Stefanik, we have today, April 8, 2017, presented in a public forum at City Park in Glens Falls, NY, the charges against you through the reading of your voting record to date from the convening of the 115th Congress,” Stanford read. “You took an oath of office … having failed to uphold your oath, the consensus of the people is to hand down this indictment. The following are the charges against you.”

Stanford and Drew Monthie took turns reading 24 legislative votes and the implication of each vote.

It's possible that she'll win re-election, I don't think it'll ever be comfortable again, tho.

According to Flanagin, on Friday Stefanik met with Schuylerville residents, CEG business Growth Service, Queensbury residents, Stillwater residents, League of Women Voters of Saratoga County, Eagle Bridge residents, Greenfield Center residents. 

What did they discuss? Is there a transcript? It might answer some questions I and others who weren't there have.

Attempts to reach Stefanik in Washington, D.C. and Glens Falls were unsuccessful.

Isn't she on spring break now? Must've gone to Florida.
