He later clarified on Steve Bannon's show (because of course....) that he would resign if every single person who voted for him renounced their support; not 142,000 people in general.

LOL dude is just trolling now, but he has way bigger issues on the horizon than resignation.

True, his career as an astronaut is heating up, plus his three part script for HBO based on his best selling young adult series that's v big in Zimbabwe is due soon. It's tough given how he moonlights as a super hero on nights. What a brave man.


bat_in_the_stacks t1_j44nnfg wrote

You're joking about him being a super hero, but all I can think of when I look at him is his Clark Kent glasses. I feel like it's intentional and another level of the prank he's playing.

Yeah… a year is about a reasonable estimate for a somewhat complex investigation into his finances. If the stars align we could be looking at a perp walk on corruption/financial crimes at just about the time the 2024 cycle is heating up.

Hence the local GOP wanting him out ASAP.

Sonofabitch even lied about resigning if 142k people told him to.

Yep, he's gotta cause as much chaos as possible to get that sweet sweet Nexfix $$ for his biopic. I wonder if they can get Jonah Hill to play him ?

Oh man that's a good choice. Would love to see how Harvey Guillen does in a role with a little more edge like that.


RChickenMan t1_j460gmn wrote

This is still achievable, given that voting is a secret ballot. There's no way of telling if the 142,000 people telling him to resign did indeed vote for him--in practice it would just have to be 142,000 registered voters from his district, which is achievable (if, for example, the Nassau County GOP called his bluff and organized an "official" "election"/pull).

But that's beside the point--even if that happened, he still wouldn't resign.


hellothere42069 t1_j46mbyl wrote

Did you hear the actual clip? He says 142 people so before even clarifying your thing he had to clarify 142,000 not 142.

I'm kind of surprised that this doesn't count as fraud or something similar. Americans spent their limited resources (votes, time, campaign donations) on a service that was explicitly advertised with lies.

It's like trying to buy a car that was advertised as a brand new jeep, and instead you get the tailpipe of a jeep that exploded in WW2.


antonivs t1_j45u0dn wrote

We need a lemon law for politicians.


iamiamwhoami t1_j46zkbd wrote

Sure that would be great, but I'm not sure how something like that could be enforced without it also applying to much smaller offenses. For example if a candidate said they had a 4 year degree but really only had a 2 year degree + 1.5 years of credits towards the 4 year degree. Would the same penalties apply to them? Seems like they would b/c they said something that's not true. From a legal perspective how would you distinguish between them and someone like Santos? Then there's also the inevitable 1st amendment case this law would lead to.

Zimmerman wasn’t incumbent.

Suozzi decided not to run again so it was open for both parties.


carpy22 t1_j456lfa wrote

It was an open seat because Suozzi wanted to primary Hochul and one of the fundamentals of election law is that you can only run for one seat at a time. He ended up finishing behind Jumaane Williams. Couldn't even get 100K votes even with his name recognition in Nassau.
