DCCC Targets Anthony D’Esposito, Who Put Loyalty to Party Politics Over Public Safety

DCCC launches billboard campaign in NY-04 calling out D’Esposito’s refusal to condemn Trump’s call to defund law enforcement

This week, the DCCC is launching a billboard campaign to highlight Anthony D’Esposito’s decision to place party politics over public safety by refusing to condemn Donald Trump’s call for Congressional Republicans to defund law enforcement. The billboard will be up as New Yorkers are on the road for Memorial Day.

Last month, disgraced, criminally indicted, and twice-impeached ex-President Donald Trump called on D’Esposito and Congressional Republicans to “defund the DOJ and FBI.” When asked to simply comment on Trump’s call to defund agencies that keep Americans safe, D’Esposito “didn’t provide any comment on whether they back Trump’s calls to defund the FBI and DOJ.

On the campaign trail, Anthony D’Esposito reassured Long Islanders that he would stand up for law enforcement in office, yet he has refused to condemn Republican threats to defund law enforcement and threaten public safety.

DCCC spokesperson Nebeyatt Betre:
“Anthony D’Esposito has shamelessly refused to condemn the twice-impeached, criminally-indicted former president’s call to defund the law enforcement agencies that keep Long Islanders safe. D’Esposito has sadly put party politics over public safety – and we won’t let Americans forget.”

REMINDER: Last month, Anthony D’Esposito and House Republicans voted for the ‘Default on America Act,’ which would strip away federal funding for state and local law enforcement officers and eliminate thousands of positions at the FBI.
