PRESS RELEASE: Statement on Democrat St. Lawrence County Elections Commissioner Illegally Sending Political Draft Press Release to Entire New York State Election Commissioners List

Draft Admits Defeat for Any Dem Congressional Candidate in NY-21

Saratoga: The St. Lawrence County Democrat Elections Commissioner illegally sent a rough draft political press release on behalf of the St Lawrence County Democrat Party attacking Congresswoman Elise Stefanik to the entire New York State Election Commissioners Association during work hours from a government computer. Then emailed a panicked “DISREGARD!” to the entire statewide Association. It is illegal to do political work during working hours as a taxpayer-funded government employee.

“The St Lawrence County Democrat election commissioner must resign immediately for breaking the law and an independent investigation should be launched so voters can have faith that the Democrats on the Board of Elections are following the law that makes clear it is illegal to do county party work using taxpayer-funded county government resources.

The highlight of the draft press release is the last line where the St. Lawrence Democrat County Committee waves the political white flag: “The residents may choose that the representative may not be a Democrat.'” – Alex Degrasse, Senior Advisor to Congresswoman Elise Stefanik
