McCarthy Calls for Aborn

Here’s the robocall that Representative Carolyn McCarthy did for Manhattan DA candidate Richard Aborn.

McCarthy, who represents part of Long Island and is a well-known gun-control advocate, says she’s supporting Aborn because “he knows there is something wrong with our criminal justice system when nearly one out of three African-American men end up spending some time in prison.”

A reader got the call last night, and the campaign provided me with a copy of the 37-second recording.

The message is part of the Aborn campaign’s unconventional strategy (for a DA race) of building his brand on traditional progressive issues. McCarthy Calls for Aborn
