The PBA may be a pack of right wing nutjobs, but at the end of the day, a lobbying group that's been around forever is somewhat likely to donate to whoever they think will win.

Yup. 538 is giving Zeldin a 3% chance of winning. I think his odds are probably a bit higher, maybe around 7-10%, but he’s almost certainly not going to win.

Crazy thing is, New York was probably very winnable for Republicans this year. They just needed a candidate with a moderate opinion on abortion and the balls to tell Trump to fuck off...instead they nominated this weirdo.

If Zeldin just distanced himself from crazy Trump crowd, he would win.


F4ilsafe t1_iu8ou1s wrote

I just think back to 2016 and the reported odds between Hillary and Donald. . . this is looking awfully familiar.


hannibalbaracka t1_iu8w4xu wrote

Trump had a 30% chance to win in 2016. That’s just a bit different than 3%


amznthrownaway1 t1_iu9v3nd wrote

And don't forget Comey going a national stage right before the election saying he found more secret e-mails and was investigating them still (which turned out to be perfectly normal emails and nothing nefarious). That changed the entire vibe of the election.


XenosV t1_iu79oqk wrote

That’s because they want to keep whoever wins under their thumb, or at least willing to look away from & ignore their corruption.

Political donations are less often bribery by the donor and more often extortion by the recipient.

The truth is: Police need arrest in order to continue to do their job. Kathy Hochuls policies of catch and release, allow exactly that more arrest. That's good for business it keeps the courts active.

Kathy Hochul is also secretly a part of the feminist agenda to replace 80-90% of NY's top electives as Female and shattering the "Glass Ceiling". Feminist grouped together, filed complaints against Cuomo to replace 'him' with 'her'. They want Joe Biden to run again so he can hopefully die this time around and give the position to Kamala Harris, it's all a strategically coordinated plot.

Vote for Lee Zeldin in order to gut the swamp. It's about checks and balances not a bureaucracy.

LMFAO Just because you're not getting laid doesn't mean there's a secret feminist conspiracy to rule New York, dude.

Funny 40% of bowlers started after the age of 15. Google 40% of cops for a similar stat!

They probably see the writing on the wall, she will win even if its by a smaller amount and shes all about that pay to play. Probably trying to buy some better pension benefits.


Something_Berserker t1_iuddbcy wrote

I gotta believe 25k is a nominal donation. It's meant to be more of a statement of support than a significant sum meant to buy influence.

No matter who wins, New York loses, both candidates are trash

Really hard to vote this time. both candidates repulse me for different reasons

I wonder how hard POST editors swallowed before they had to write that


LeicaM6guy t1_iu8rcav wrote

I doubt it’s out of benevolence - they know Zeldin doesn’t stand a chance and want some influence with the likeliest winner.


stansvan t1_iuc6xqt wrote

Yes, the Governor is a master of manipulation. Diverting millions for her pay to play that benefit the wealthy. While this money can be used to help so many that are struggling. If she gets away with this while up for reelection, just imagine what she will do if she wins.

The right wing nut jobs are calling for Pat Lynch head.


stansvan t1_iuc7p3k wrote

Well then, if that's the case, she can do whatever the hell she wants because it won't matter. Good strategy.

She is the opposite of a conservative. But you need to ask yourself if she is she spending on the project's you care about. Stadiums, Penn station, airports, trains to airport, LIRR access to West side, electric school busses ........

I honestly dislike both of them but there's a clear choice who isn't a POS AntiAmerican traitor lover. She's getting my vote just for the fact she didn't be d down and kiss that orange POS ring

Yes, nothing cops love more than high crime rates so they can get ordered in for overtime so they can't go home.
