SARATOGA, NY—Today, Congresswoman and GOP House Conference Chair Elise Stefanik released the following statement on GovernorKathy Hochul and Albany Democrats’ shameless attempt to change election law in the middle of an election in order to remove Kathy Hochul’s handpicked criminal Lt. Governor from the ballot:

“Make no mistake, Kathy Hochul miserably failed her first test as Governor when she selected a criminal Lieutenant Governor. She is following in the footsteps of other corrupt New York Democrat governors like Cuomo, Spitzer, and Paterson. Now corrupt Kathy Hochul is using her henchmen in the state legislature to change the law in the middle of an election in order to try to hide her complete failure and benefit herself on the ballot. Albany Democrats continue to epitomize the cesspool of corruption, and we must clean house once and for all. Corruption is on the ballot in November, and it’s never been more clear — only Republicans can save our state.”
