Vallone: At Least We’ll Have More Drug Dealers

Peter Vallone Jr., the tough-on-crime conservative Democratic City Councilman from Astoria, is not happy with Albany.
Unprompted, Vallone—a supporter of the Rockefeller drug laws and an opponent of the additional taxes and fees in the new budget—emailed me:
“In 2 days, Albany has waged class war on our top earners, while surrendering in the drug war. At least the budget is balanced when it comes to the population on our streets – the fleeing tax payers will be replaced by drug dealers.”
