Last week League of Humane Voters-NYC (LOHV-NYC) exposed that Assemblywoman Sylvia Friedman accepted a campaign contribution of $350 from Feld Entertainment, owners of Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus. Today LOHV-NYC uncovered that she also accepted funds from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer and has volunteers from the company working in her office.
If you live in the Lower East Side area please make sure you get out to the primary elections tomorrow and vote for humane candidate Brian Kavanagh. LOHV-NYC also needs lots of volunteers to help rock the humane vote. Call them at (212) 889-0303 to sign up or to get more details on this story.
Update 9/15: Brian Kavanagh won by 374 votes! In his victory speech, those first thanked were the folks at LOHV-NYC. The group mailed out hundred of postcards, made thousands of phone calls, and made avialable two dozen volunteers in support of the humane candidate. Good work guys!
