Rep. Gregory Meeks slammed Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday for their endorsement of insurgent candidate Tiffany Cabán in the race for Queens district attorney.
“I don’t know who they spoke with, but clearly they did not speak with the elected officials of Queens County, or the people who elected them,” Meeks said in a statement. “African Americans have the largest stake in this DA race . . . Yet Warren and Sanders saw fit to endorse without even considering what African Americans thought.”
Meeks, chair of the Queens County Democratic Party, is supporting Melinda Katz in the race to replace the late Richard Brown.
Apparently the congressman doesn't think African-Americans live anywhere else in Queens County. And as for his claim that those presidential candidates don't know what African-Americans think, he must think he has "the Shining".
