Delgado supports law enforcement

It’s time to set the record straight regarding Congressman Antonio Delgado (D-19): he has never been a fan of “defunding the police” or cashless bail, as Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro would have us believe. Molinaro ought to know that cashless bail was voted on by the New York State government and Delgado, as a member of the U.S. Congress, has nothing to do with that.

What he did do in the House of Representatives was to support the bipartisan Invest in Law Enforcement Act. This would send federal dollars to rural police departments to improve recruitment and training practices. The act was applauded by multiple police, sheriff and state trooper organizations.

Is it too much to ask Republicans to play fair and be informed?
