DANIEL J. O'DONNELL THE PERFECT NEW YORKER FOR PUBLIC ADVOCATE

Image
Story By James Edstrom -- I received this yesterday. Let me tell you about Daniel J. O'Donnell. I have lived in New York my whole life. I know real New Yorker's. I know good politicians as I know many of them personally. Danny is one of the great ones. He has done so much for New York and when I heard he wanted to run for Public Advocate to replace Tish James, I knew this was the perfect job for him. He helped make New York the center for gay rights. His Marriage Equality Act changed everything for LGBTQ and his anti bullying legislation that makes schools responsible for fighting harassment.

All New Yorker's need to support Daniel J. O'Donnell for Public Advocate. This is the right man for the job. Please join the fight to get Danny elected. If you can, make a DONATION HERE.

FROM DANIEL J. O'DONNELL

It's right there in the title: Public Advocate. Not special interest advocate, corporate advocate, or even the mayor's advocate. This position belongs to the pe…

THE INSIDE STORY OF DONALD TRUMP: HIS AFFAIR WITH HIS MEXICAN MAID & HIS SMALL PENIS

Image
STORY BY JAMES EDSTROM -- Really, where on this map below does anyone see that we need a wall? But today at 3:30 he will say America is in danger from this caravan and his base will scream " build the wall". He will declare a national emergency with false dangers and lies if he does not get his way. His base will believe this lunatic. This is the only way out for Trump. He dug himself into a corner.
Donald Trump is no match for Nancy Pelosi. He degrades women. So Trump will announce a emergency because of this fake caravan danger and because Pelosi is not going to stand for this grandstanding and fake promises.
NEW YORK ALWAYS HATED TRUMP
Most of us here in New York City have always hated Trump because he was always this way. Others that hated him, now kiss his ass because they are rich and Trump makes them more rich. He is also getting advice from a few of my media friends that no matter what, will defend any republican no matter how evil. These media friends are experts. Th…
