Voter Questions Teachout On Residency
Brooklyn radical Zephyr Teachout can’t get away from her carpetbagging past. A routine question about Teachout’s background led the Democrat to reveal that she’s actually not from the district. When Teachout was asked if she were “from here” she actually told the voter that she grew up in “rural Vermont.”
Teachout’s recent history shows that she’ll move wherever she believes she has the best chance of winning elected office. She lived in Brooklyn when she wanted to run for Governor. Then when a Congressional seat opened up, she moved into New York’s 19th. Even Democrats expressed worries about Teachout’s carpetbagging when she announced her congressional run.
With no roots in the district Teachout is running in, voters can expect a for sale sign in Teachout’s lawn come November 9th.
