TUXEDO, N.Y. – Chele Farley, Republican and Conservative nominee for U.S. Congress in New York’s 18th Congressional District today called on the New York State legislature to convene in an emergency session to repeal Gov. Cuomo’s “no bail” law in the wake of protests in New York. Nearly 2,000 have been arrested already by the NYPD for looting and rioting in New York City over the past five days, but the bad actors have been immediately released due to cashless bail.

Chele Farley said, “Members of our community are understandably upset about what happened to George Floyd. However, peaceful protests have been eclipsed by violent and destructive riots like we have seen in New York over the past week. Businesses that people have spent their lives trying to build have been destroyed, police officers have been brutally attacked and places of worship have been defaced.”

Farley continued, “It’s time for the lawlessness to end and that won’t happen until cash bail is restored by repealing a terrible law that never should have gone into effect in the first place. I call on the New York State Legislature to convene in an emergency session to repeal the ‘no bail’ law immediately.”

This is not the first time Farley has spoken out against Gov. Cuomo’s controversial bail reform law. In February, the Congressional candidate issued a statement calling for the repeal of the law when a Level 3 sex offender with a history of abusing children was arrested for trespassing on a nursery school playground in her district. As per the bail reform law, the perpetrator was released right away.
