Gillibrand's tearful plea to Bernie: Give up your guns

Gillibrand's tearful plea to Bernie: Give up your guns
New York's junior senator, in an interview for POLITICO's 'Off Message' podcast, says that Sanders lacks the 'sensitivity' to understand how gun violence devastates families.

His option? Change positions. That’s what Kirsten Gillibrand, a proud, passionate turncoat on guns, urges her Senate colleague from Vermont to do for the sake of his politics and, you know, his immortal soul.

“I was somebody who was not as focused on this, as I should have been, as a House member. Meeting these families devastated me, broke my heart,” said Gillibrand, when I suggested she switched positions as a matter of political expediency in a deep-blue state where most Democrats favor stringent gun restrictions.


Gillibrand, a 49-year-old mother of two young sons not prone to public expressions of emotion, began to cry in mid-sentence. “It’s so crippling — I mean, I sat down with a mother last week in Brooklyn, and she lost her 4-year-old baby … she took her kid to a park,” she said. “Every mom takes their kid to a park. And she took her kid to a park and the kid was killed, a baby, a 4-year-old … doesn’t have the sensitivity he needs to the horror that is happening in these families. I just don't think he's fully getting how horrible it is for these families.”

Independent voters could make polling sites a nightmare

Independent voters could make polling sites a nightmare
By Marisa Schultz April 13, 2016

WASHINGTON — New York election officials are bracing for a mess at the polls because they expect many Bernie Sanders voters will show up who can’t vote.

“I’m going to predict that a lot of Sanders people who come from the ranks of independent voters are not actually registered Democrats and they will cause lines and waits at the poll sites while they attempt to vote affidavit ballots or obtain court orders to vote,” said John Conklin, a spokesman for the state Board of Elections.
