BECKER CONDEMNS ATTACK ON US CONSULATE IN LIBYA, EGYPT, MURDERS OF AMERICAN AMBASSADOR STEVENS AND STATE DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL
Legislator Fran Becker, Republican candidate for Congress in New York’s Fourth Congressional District, issued the following statement this morning after no comment or statement was issued by 16-year incumbent Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy:
“The outrageous and cowardly attacks on America overseas yesterday – the 11th Anniversary of September 11 – were perpetrated by protesters with one mission: to harm the United States. Not only do I condemn the attacks, but I ask that we all stand together as Americans to oppose these senseless and unexplainable attacks upon America.
“Media reports the protestors and cold-blooded murders were angry over a film that ridiculed Islam’s Prophet Mohammad. When protestors shred the American flag on our nation’s sovereign property, its Embassy, overseas and replace it with the flag of another, it’s a dangerously disturbing. But when foreigners take to the street to murder State Department personnel – Americans abroad in the service of our nation – with machine guns and rocket propelled grenades, something is deeply wrong and misguided.
“In the face of tragedy, we must come together as Americans. Not only must we mourn the loss of fine public servants in the line of duty, but we must also reevaluate President Obama’s Middle Eastern foreign policy. It’s sad and unfortunate that it took this horrific terrorist act against American citizens for that to happen.”

Frank Scaturro claims ‘Tea Party’ support but lets remember what he did to Nassau Tea Party activist Dan Maloney in the 2010 Primary. Frank ‘Dirty Tricks’ Scaturro tried to get Maloney thrown off the ballot.
Maloney also reminds his supporters about Scaturro’s Specter connections and the fact that Scaturro had an Arlen Specter staffer and fundraiser as his Finance Director. There are lots of ‘Friends of Arlen’ that are also ‘Friends of Frank’. Frank’s attempts to distance himself from his former boss, who he respected so much that he wrote a book with him, to fool Republican voters are truly dispicable.
Each year Fran attends the AHRC’s (Association for the Help of Retarded Children) Rose Ball to sing the National Anthem and support this amazing organization which helps thousands of individuals with developmental disabilities. This year’s honoree was football super star Jim Kelly and his wife Jill. Many years ago they created their own foundation Hunter’s Hope Foundation after the death of one of their son Hunter from the very rare Krabbe’s disease. Early screening and detection for Krabbe’s and other rare diseases like it can often save the lives of the afflicted children. The Kelly family has been on a crusade to get these screenings to become a routine part of newborn care to so that all children will be tested and get the benefits of early intervention. At the event, the Kelly family intermingled Jim’s amazing career and four Super Bowl appearances (humorously stating the Giants loss being the most painful) together with their spiritual journey in celebrating their son’s 8 short years of life and how his courage and love has impacted them all their lives. Appearing also in the photo is the philanthropist duo of Tom and Cynthia Rosicki whose unending, generous financial support of the AHRC has helped the less fortunate on Long Island and across the country in many profound and meaningful ways.
For years people have complained to me about our current representative in Washington D.C., Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy. One person said to me recently, “Watch this, she will fly in to campaign for a week before Election Day and afterwards we won’t see her again for two years.” When I ran against Carolyn McCarthy two years ago in 2010, this is exactly what she did. As I often stated during the campaign at the time, Carolyn McCarthy is completely out of touch with her district—as is evidenced in part by her ultra liberal votes for Obamacare and the wasteful trillion dollar stimulus package — and this is the reason why: To best represent the people you serve, I believe you have to be present with them in the district so you can listen, know and understand their concerns and their hopes for the future and those they hold for their families and our country. Simply put, Carolyn McCarthy is never here to do that, so she can’t really know and that is why she votes the way she does. It should be obvious to everyone by now that Carolyn McCarthy has very little concern for us as illustrated by her total absence from the district which has been going on for years and years now. During my tenure in representing Valley Stream, Lynbrook, Malverne, East Rockaway and Rockville Centre in the Nassau County Legislature I have seen her perhaps six times. READ THE REST HERE
