Daily Caller: Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ripped Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tuesday after the congresswoman blamed rising crime rates on poverty.
Ocasio-Cortez blamed rising crime rates in New York City on residents struggling to pay rent, but Cuomo noted that evictions in the state have been paused amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“People have theories. An incorrect theory doesn’t wind up being correct because there’s a void,” Cuomo said. “I think there are a number of contributing factors.”
“It is factually impossible that somebody committed a crime so they could pay their rent,” the governor continued. “If you can’t pay your rent, you cannot be evicted right now.” more here
SNIP: Superficial arguments. Neither is addressing the fact that crime is up because of Cuomo’s and de Blasio’s restrictive management of the police and the harsh treatment of citizens due to burdensome Coronavirus regulations.
