Statement from Senator George Borrello on the Attack on Congressman Lee Zeldin

“As our governor and Democrat majorities continue to ignore the crime crisis they’ve created with their pro-criminal policies, violence continues to rage across New York State’s cities and communities.

Last evening in Monroe County, Congressman Lee Zeldin was brazenly attacked while speaking on stage at a political rally. After being charged with attempted assault in the second degree, the suspect was, of course, subsequently released.

I am relieved that Congressman Zeldin and members of his campaign team weren’t seriously injured. However, thousands of innocent New Yorkers who have been victimized thanks to One Party Rule’s reckless criminal justice ‘reforms’ haven’t been as fortunate. Revolving door justice is putting us all at risk and must end if public safety is to be restored.”
