One of the interesting sidebars in the NY-23 race is the conservative attack on GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava for running (in previous elections) on the Working Families Party’s ballot line. Conservative candidate Doug Hoffman blasted the party today in a press release:
Today, I am calling on Bill Owens to do the right thing and, when he is with President Obama tonight; ask him to take immediate action to defund ACORN and block the flow of any and all federal funds to the scandal ridden organization and its numerous subsidiaries. In addition, Bill Owens should request that Justice Department monitors be put in place to insure that ACORN’s political arm in New York State, the Working Families Party, does not steal this election.
The “steal this election” charge is a serious one directed at a party that, despite its ties to labor, ACORN et al., is not controversial in New York. “It’s common knowledge,” says Hoffman, “that ACORN and the Working Families Party have absolutely no respect for the law and I know I am the one candidate they want to defeat.”
