I call Shenanigans!!!
Something reeks and it’s not my dirty laundry this time.
It’s time for another installment of Shenanigans. This time we have Elizabeth Crowley under the microscope.
Elizabeth Crowley is cousin to Joseph Crowley a Queens Congressman. Her parents have both been City Council members, and two of her sisters serve on local school boards and community boards. She is the creation of a political machine. However she says she’s not your typical politician.
She does have a point, this memorial weekend at the parade while the typical politicians were sitting at home watching the parade and not campaigning out of respect, Elizabeth and her staff were flooding the streets with flyers and literature.
Now your typical campaign is qualified in some previous political office, she is not your typical politician because she doesn’t believe you need any of that “Political experience” to serve in office.
Typical politicians usually have some money in the bank to run for office. She isn’t your typical politician because she stills owes $56,257 from her previous campaign. Typical politicians don’t start campaigns in debt. While other typical politicians can’t run for office if they owe money, she’s not the typical campaign so she can run, I mean why not when your cousin is a congressman?
Typical politicians get endorsements then tell everyone about them. Not Crowley! She received the endorsement of the Lesbian and Gay Democratic Club of Queens then on Friday, May 23rd she told the Queens Tribune that she was against gay marriage. She didn’t put their logo on her literature and completely disregarded them, now would a typical politician do that?
Typical politicians usually distance themselves from people who might be viewed as bad when they run. Not Elizabeth! Hell she was in a relationship with convicted criminal Brian McLaughlin who by the way, was married at the time. A typical politician might care about having an affair with a married person, not Elizabeth!
Typical politicians when asked who the worst council man was would probably answer “the one who raped the grandmother” Not Elizabeth, especially when he’s an adviser to your campaign!
No it turns out she’s not your typical politician at all when you look at it. She’s just a run of the mill, well connected latte sipping elitist.
