Rep. Lee Zeldin joined “The Ingraham Angle” Wednesday to share his vision for turning the state of New York around, telling Laura Ingraham his first-day plan if elected governor.
LEE ZELDIN: Day one, we should fire Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. That’ll set the example. District attorneys should be enforcing the law. The Manhattan district attorney on his first day put out a memo saying he wasn’t going to enforce laws across the books, others he was going to downgrade. We should say on day one, he’s fired, that is, within the constitutional authority in New York for the governor of the state. I believe that we should repeal cashless bail. Judges should have discretion to weigh dangerousness, and flight risk, and past criminal record and seriousness of the offense on all offenses when setting bail. But people need to feel safe on our streets, in our subways. People are looking at other states where their money will go further. They’ll feel safer. They’ll live life freer.
