Grow a pair

Some entertainment in Assembly Codes:

“… According to a video of the Codes Committee meeting viewed by NY1, things got heated when Committee Chair Jeffrey Dinowitz called for a vote on Westchester Democrat Amy Paulin’s bill, which requires police officers to take temporary custody of firearms when responding to reports of domestic violence. This was not the first time the bill had come before the committee and failed to gather enough votes to pass. Dinowitz, a Bronx Democrat, was challenged on that point by Manhattan Democrat Daniel O’Donnell … O’Donnell went on to say that it was unfair to the 149 other members of the House who can’t get their bills reconsidered. A short time later, a vote was held and once again, it didn’t have enough support to pass. After the vote, O’Donnell proceeded to walk out of the hearing room. As he passed Queens Assemblymember Carlina Cruz, a Democrat who voted in favor of the bill, he audibly whispered to her: “Grow a pair, honey.” Cruz became visibly upset, and immediately responded: “That was so disrespectful.” A few seconds later, Cruz stood up and declared: “I have something. I don’t care who is in here. I am a woman of color. I am an attorney. And to be spoken to like that, by a man. By a white man. In front of people. It is not ok.” Dinowitz then said: “I didn’t hear what he said. I’m sorry. What did he say?” As Cruz gets up to leave, she turns to Dinowitz and says: “He told me to grow a pair.” NY1 reached out to O’Donnell and Cruz for comment, but did not immediately hear back …”

  1. Democrats judge themselves by the color of their skin, and they judge everyone else the same way. They’re narrow-minded, and overtly racist like that.
