To the editor:
In response to Adirondack Day by day Enterprise’s Feb. 13 profile of Tedra Cobb (“Cobb has cash to spend, however she’s hanging onto it”), Cobb’s congressional opponent, Elise Stefanik, revealed her disdain for poor individuals.
The Enterprise’s article is an effective window onto Cobb’s compassion and her technique, and it explains that her fiscally conservative method to spending marketing campaign contributions is rooted in her mom’s resourcefulness within the face of financial hardship.
Stefanik’s response on Twitter? To check Cobb’s story about her mom to an article in a satiric publication: “Amazingly, this isn’t The Onion,” Stefanik writes. She goes on to name Cobb schoolyard-bully names that might make Trump proud, and fills her tweet with laugh-crying emojis.
A lot of Stefanik’s personal constituents face monetary hardship. Her district is likely one of the poorest in New York state, with nearly half of youngsters qualifying without cost lunch. As a substitute of working to enhance their lives, and the monetary well being of the district she serves, Stefanik continues to indicate us who she actually is: a rich (however morally bankrupt) bully who laughs at others’ ache.
