Statement from New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on Arrest of Lt. Governor Benjamin
Brooklyn, NY – “Here we go again. Another day, another senior New York Democrat arrested for alleged corruption, this time Lt. Governor Brian Benjamin. It’s enough to make New York taxpayers scream.
“Mr. Benjamin’s arrest says everything one needs to know about Albany under the Hochul Administration. Governor Hochul knew Mr. Benjamin was viewed as shady — everyone in Albany knew that — and still she made him her right-hand-man in government. It’s as though hints of corruption meant nothing to her.
“New Yorkers are sick of the chaos that Democrats have inflicted on this state. Crime, corruption, taxes, and wokeism have turned New York into a national punchline. Only a new governor can turn this state around. The current one is but another charter member of the Albany Swamp.”
