Gillibrand’s Old Constituents Don’t Even Recognize Her Anymore


The Times gathers reactions from Senator Gillibrand’s former upstate constituents, and not surprisingly, they’re a little peeved about her ongoing transformation on guns, gays, and ‘gration. A guy in a Home Depot says, “I think she’s hanging around with the wrong people.” Come on now. We know the real issue here is that Gillibrand is no longer hanging around with you. The little 42-year-old bird you nurtured for all of two years has finally left the nest. And five minutes later, she likes gay people. And you wonder what it was all for. [NYT]
