New York Independent Party abandons NY Congressional District 20. Becomes Obama, Pelosi, Reid Rubber Stamp

Scott Murphy Gets “Independence” Nomination

Scott Murphy has been given the NY Independence Party nomination. Murphy who votes 90% with Nancy Pelosi is hardly an “independent.” A primary for the nomination with Chris Gibson would have let registered Independence Party voters decide, but the party executives didn’t seem tobe interested in that. People register for the INDEPENDENCE party because they have problems with the two major parties, this move hardly seems to honor that ideal by simply nominating an incumbant from a major party.

As John Miller, chairman of the Columbia County Independence Party noted, Murphy came to the 20th Congressional District in 2006.  Before that, he lived in New York City and spent much of his life in Missouri. It’s really hard to imagine how a man who spent so little time in this area really understands us enough to represent us.

It’s laughable for a generic Pelosi rubber stamp to be running as an “independent.”  I’m disappointed in the Independence Party for selecting Murphy based on his record, but if nothing else they could have at least allowed a primary to take place so the people could decide.

    As a newly registered Independent, I am shocked by the party’s endorsement. Mr. Murphy has shown his true colors with a turn coat vote on that so called helath care plan. We need honorable candidates and that, I beleive is Chris Gibson.

  2. Dr. E. Mark Stern says:

    I’m so delighted to note that Congressman Scott Murphy has received the endorsement of the Independence Party. This is a man of valor and virtue, whose entry into the House of Representatives has continued a commitment to independent thinking initiated by Senator Kristin Gillibrand. We are indeed fortunate to have Scott Murphy represting our 20th Congressional District. Let’s all get out and keep his campaign momentum at full speed.
