Sexual Misconduct Loses
NOW Backed Candidates win against Eliot Spitzer, Vito Lopez and Micah Kellner
NEW YORK – National Organization for Women – NYC endorsed candidate for Comptroller Scott Stringer and City Council candidates Ben Kallos and Antonio Reynoso win elected office. Anthony Weiner skids into a distant fifth place in mayoral race.
“It turns out sexual misconduct is a fast track to a concession speech,” said Sonia Ossorio, President of the National Organization for Women in New York City. “This election makes it clear that voters will reject candidates who fail to treat women with respect and dignity.”
