Savino: Dems 'Blatantly Political' While Families 'Were Burying Babies'
Sen. Diane Savino's spokesman Eric Soufer did not grant Gotham Gazette's request for an interview about gun-control legislation last week â€” a request that was made a day before the mass shooting in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Conn.
But someone using her Facebook account did take the time to respond to the article this evening:
i am fully confident that we will take up many of these issues this session. and, btw, you should ask my former conference members in regular democratic conference how many votes they have for these measures. when we held the majority we did not have 32 votes to pass them, there may be more votes now. i must say that i was rather dismayed to see them issue press releases in a blatantly political attempt while there are families burying babies. the call for microstamping is very important, i have supported and will continue to do so, but it has no relevance to what happened on friday, someone using Savino posted around 6:30 p.m.
I asked Savino if she would like to be interviewed on the subject now, but have yet to receive a response.
