Cynthia Nixon was ALL ABOUT “getting out the vote” when she was running against Andrew Cuomo in the NY Gubernatorial primaries.
New York State has some of the lowest voter turnout in the entire country. That’s not accidental. It’s a deliberate strategy that keeps working people out of the voting process in order to keep incumbents in power.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has defeated his progressive challenger, actress Cynthia Nixon, in tonight’s Democratic primary, the Associated Press projects. Cuomo will face Republican Marc Molinaro as he seeks a third term this fall.

Which MUST mean the incumbent’s “deliberate strategy” to keep voters from voting must have worked… right?
VOTER SUPPRESSION – RIGHT?!
Um.. no. Not quite.
I’m laughing at this Cynthia Nixon pre-result spin memo that blames…..turnout…..for her loss pic.twitter.com/1mielpJYd2

So when she was running, low voter turnout “kept incumbents in power.”
Now that she’s lost, HIGH voter turnout kept incumbents in power.
Funny how that works, eh?
Nixon team also saying the uncomfortable truth for a lot of lefty candidates tonight. High turnout likely means effective machine politics. Low turnout in the AOC Crowley race worked to AOC’s advantage. pic.twitter.com/UgVCxCHPus

Meaning her FIRST argument could not have been a bigger crock of BS.
Radical leftists like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC) win when incumbents, and their supporters, get lazy and complacent. 1,000 people show up to vote… 600 of them are every single one the radical leftists’ rabid supporters.
But f’real. Cynthia’s campaign is complaining about HIGH VOTER TURNOUT. I mean… wtf? Don’t say that OUT LOUD, you nutjobs.
NY GOV: Cynthia Nixon’s campaign is not happy that so many voters turned out to vote. In other states, Dems have a problem with this kind of argument. pic.twitter.com/mlnKfbI3PA

Strangely enough… I was sort of kind of rooting for her.
Well… Cuomo and Nixon are both liberal wacks.
But Cuomo has PROVEN that he’ll run the city to the ground. Why not give someone new a chance to f*ck up, as opposed to keep letting the same old corrupt scumbag KEEP f*cking up – you know? She won’t do more damage than Cuomo – but Cuomo won’t do all the crap he did AND GET AWAY WITH IT.
It’s some “definition of insanity” stuff here.
