Goroff Lies About Her Support For Defunding Police - Video & Photographic Evidence Tell Real Story
Updated On: Aug 12, 2020
August 12, 2020 – Congressional candidate Nancy Goroff is once again trying to deceive voters about her support for defunding police. After the Suffolk Coalition of Law Enforcement Unions endorsed Rep. Lee Zeldin yesterday for re-election, Goroff told Newsday that she opposes defunding the police, yet video and photographic evidence tells a different story.
“Nancy Goroff is not being honest with the voters – it’s clear she supports defunding our law enforcement,” said James Gruenfelder, President of the Suffolk County Superior Officers Association. “If that weren’t bad enough, she’s refused to condemn or even acknowledge that there are acts of violence against our law enforcement officers.”
When asked by Newsday last week, Goroff’s spokesperson doubled down saying, she “stands by what she has said”.
At her endorsement meeting with the Suffolk Coalition of Law Enforcement Unions, Goroff claimed she didn’t support defunding police but weeks prior she called for "moving funding" away from police so that social workers could to be sent in to respond to domestic disputes.
Earlier this summer, Goroff was also photographed at a march with a sign that read: “COST of RIOTGEAR for 1 POLICEMAN EQUALS COST of PPE for 31 NURSES.”
“Apparently, Nancy Goroff’s position on defunding police seems to change depending on which group she’s speaking to – but the photos and videos tell the real story – she supports defunding police,” said Gruenfelder.
