Protesting Against Rep. Malliotakis
A cross section of organizations representing progressive voters, working people and communities of color joined together on the anniversary of the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol to condemn Rep. Nicole Malliotakis for voting to reject the results of the 2020 election just hours after violent protesters besieged the U.S Capitol demanding just that. More than 75 grassroots community activists and community leaders gathered outside Malliotakis’ offices in Brooklyn and Staten Island to peacefully demonstrate opposition to Malliotakis’ efforts to reject the results of the 2020 election, oppose a bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6, 2021 insurrection, and validate debunked claims of fraud following the election.
Organizers were bolstered by new polling released today by Data for Progress which showed that a majority of voters in New York’s 11th District not only overwhelmingly disapprove of the insurrection, but also disapprove of her siding with the insurrectionists. Malliotakis will again face her predecessor and opponent, Democrat Max Rose, in this year’s Congressional elections.
