Fight Back N.Y. Ad Targets Stachowski

Fight Back N.Y. Ad Targets Stachowski


As the primary election season races to its September conclusion, New York state senator Bill Stachowski, one of eight Democrats who voted against the marriage equality bill last year, is the target of a new ad from Fight Back New York.

As the PAC explains in an e-mail blast sent to supporters Tuesday, "'The Big Stachowski' focuses on how 30-year incumbent Bill Stachowski managed to find a way around the rules: State senators are not supposed to get paid when the budget is late. But Stachowski managed to collect thousands of dollars in per diem payments, paid for by taxpayers, just for showing up in Albany and not doing his job."

. It is airing across Stachowski's district in Buffalo.

Stachowski faces challenger Tim Kennedy in the Democratic primary September 14. Kennedy has been endorsed by the Empire State Pride Agenda and the Human Rights Campaign. Fight Back New York does not endorse candidates.

The Stachowski ad is the second one this week from Fight Back New York to connect a state lawmaker to problems beyond the failure of the marriage equality bill in the senate. On Monday the pro-equality PAC released the results of its "What's in Ruben's Closet?" campaign, the donor-funded opposition research effort against state senator Ruben Diaz Sr. The Bronx senator and Pentecostal minister, an outspoken gay rights foe, is being challenged by Charlie Ramos in the Democratic primary.
