Capano’s Statement on Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito Urging NYS Lawmakers to Join In Honoring Terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera

Capano: “Mark-Viverito is A Radical Leftist Hell-Bent on Celebrating & Defending Criminals Over Law Abiding Citizens”

Bob Capano, the leading Republican candidate for the 43rd Council District (Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach, Bensonhurst) and a staunch defender of the NYPD, today issued a statement on New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito’s decision to urge state lawmakers to sign a letter to the National Puerto Rican Day Parade Board “expressing support for their decision to honor Oscar Lopez Rivera during this year’s 60th National Puerto Rican Day parade.”

Bob Capano said, “New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito is a radical leftist hell-bent on celebrating and defending criminals over law abiding citizens. It would also be nice if one of the several Democrats running for City Council in the 43rd district would demonstrate some courage and independence and stand up to one of their leaders.”

Capano recently slammed Mark-Viverito’s plan to use $16.4 million dollars in taxpayer funds for free legal services to defend those here illegally and commit felonies from deportation.
