NYC Councilman Leaves Democrat Party Over Far-Left Policies

Free beacon:

Disenchanted with Democrats’ far-left soft-on-crime policies, a New York City councilman announced Monday that he is switching to the Republican Party, the New York Post reported.

Bensonhurst councilman Ari Kagan, who began his first term in office in January, is abandoning the Democratic Party, which he says is responsible for New York City’s crime surge.

“I believe right now, the Democratic Party is doing everything possible in New York City to make everybody less safe,” he said. Kagan, in a statement Monday, specifically listed the City Council’s move to bar landlords from requiring criminal background checks on potential tenants and its push to eliminate solitary confinement as examples of Democrats’ failure to address public safety concerns. Democrats have a supermajority on the council.

“The Democratic Party in New York was moving to [the] left at such a speed I couldn’t keep up,” said Kagan. “It’s not me leaving the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party very quickly started to leave me.” more

  1. I am creating an honest wage from home 1900 Dollars/week , that is wonderful, below a year ago I used to be unemployed during an atrocious economy. I convey God on a daily basis. I used to be endowed with these directions and currently it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with everybody..

  2. Just as they created and developed the Ku Klux Klan hate group (past and present) the democrat party/joe biden has found much self-gain and profit in crime and numerous other sinister activities. And just as (dead) US president and vile democrat LBJ once said, “we’ll have these n****rs voting democrat for the next 200 years”. MSM quickly hid his anti-race comment and claimed it as “false”.
