Stop NY Corruption Barnstorms UpstateWith Lee Zeldin, U.S. Reps Tenney & Williams
Concerned Citizens Join Them as They Warn New YorkersAbout a Corrupt Redistricting Scam!
News Conferences Held in Buffalo, Rochester & Syracuse
The new statewide organization, Stop NY Corruption (SNYC), held news conferences in three upstate media markets on Friday to educate New Yorkers about a shameless and corrupt attempt to redraw the districts of the state’s congressional delegation. The New York State Court of Appeals will hear the case on Wednesday, November 15th, in Buffalo.
Stop NY Corruption’s spokesperson, Bobbie Anne Cox, a Westchester County based attorney who specializes in constitutional law was joined by Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-24) and former congressman and candidate for governor, Lee Zeldin at the Buffalo and Rochester news conferences. The trio was joined by Congressman Brandon Williams (NY-22) at the Syracuse news conference.
The legal action has been taken by the Elias Group, a Washington, DC law firm, on behalf of the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and calls for the Court of Appeals to throw out the current congressional districts that were drawn just last year by a court appointed non-partisan Special Master.

Bobbie Anne Cox said, “This is not a partisan issue. This is not about left or right. This is not about being a Republican or being a Democrat. This is about the constitution. This is about the will of the people of New York, and what’s going on in Albany is outrageous.”
Lee Zeldin said, “Twice, statewide voters of all parties came together to make it clear that we do not want hyper-partisan gerrymandering done by the state legislature.”
Rep. Claudia Tenney said, “And now, the Democrats are suing to overturn the will of the people in this very important lawsuit that will be heard by the (NYS) Court of Appeals.”
Rep. Brandon Williams said, “This issue of gerrymandering is elected officials, politicians, career politicians, trying to take that power away from the citizens.”
