NY Dem Endorsed By Scandal Plagued Ex-Rep

Over the weekend, former Rep. Tim Bishop (D-NY) endorsed NY-01 Democratic candidate Anna Throne-Holst for Congress.

Bishop’s endorsement is of dubious value after being voted out of office while under an ethics investigation for attempting to trade political favors for a campaign contributions. The Office of Congressional Ethics “found substantial reason to believe” that Bishop sought a contribution because of his official acts. In 2014, Bishop lost to current Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) by over eight points.

Throne-Holst may want to reconsider accepting this endorsement from the self-described “friggin mailman.”
