MICHAEL HENRY for ATTORNEY GENERAL STATEMENT on LETITIA JAMES FLIP FLOP

New York, NY — Attorney General candidate Michael Henry issued the following statement after Letitia James flip-flopped on bail reform:

“In 2018 Letitia James campaigned on cashless bail and got what she wanted — and it failed.

Then she claimed she needed more data as New Yorkers watch in horror as violent and repeat criminals victimize our neighbors.

She accepted the WFP — Defund the Police Party’s endorsement — which explicitly stated no candidate should seek rollbacks to bail reform or take money from Police and corrections unions.

Letitia James has proven again that she only cares about herself and her political career.

She knows that I am ahead in the polls and one day after Quinnipiac identified crime as the #1 concern in this state she claims she would ‘look at’ the law.

New Yorkers have looked at it and they’ve had enough.

New Yorkers do not trust flip-flopping Letitia James and they will dismiss Tish on November 8.”
