Heeding the Call

On October, 9, I said:

"In light of the revelation that a Democratic District Leader financially supports a conservative who is hostile to the LGBT community, I’m calling for the ethics committee of the Manhattan Democratic Party to discuss whether there is an ethical violation. Leaders should not be held to a lower standard than county committee members. The meeting should take place Oct 16 and be streamed on Facebook.  manhattandems@gmail.com "

On October 12,  the County Leader called for a meeting to amend the rules to create an ethics committee. The rule PASSED!

This is a big win for those being constantly attacked by the Republicans.

Language is currently being drafted to fix the "donation" loophole, which allows District Leaders to donate to candidates who are anti-choice and anti-LGBT.
