What can you say about 22-year-old New York Senate candidate Mindy Meyer that she has not said already? How about “rowr”! And also it is sort of adorable that Meyer’s website, which is basically a living Blingee, actually has a few issues on it as well! Like stopping “stop and frisk”! Wait, just what kind of conservative Republican is Mindy Meyer anyway? A terrible one, apparently!
Let us hear straight from the slightly oddly shaped mouth of law student Meyer herself:
Stop-and-frisk is when a police officer who is suspicious of an individual detains the person and runs his hands lightly over the suspect’s outer garments to determine if the person is carrying a concealed weapon. As long as an officer has reasonable suspicion, a stop and frisk is constitutional under the Fourth Amendment. Mindy believes that skin color does not warrant a “reasonable suspicion.” Mindy will not tolerate racially motivated stop-and-frisk. The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices raise serious concerns over racial profiling, illegal stops and privacy rights. The police are stopping hundreds of thousands of law abiding New Yorkers every year, and the vast majority are black and Latino.
Also? Moar afterschool programz!
No more “Hunger Games” in our District! Mindy believes that summer youth employment programs should be restored to receive the full funding that they had received in the past. In doing so, this will provide jobs during the summer months for teens and young adults who would be at home or in the streets doing nothing substantial otherwise. This will help them develop their resumes and job skills for the future. Mindy feels that career fairs and unemployment seminars should be more transparent and implemented throughout our district.
And then she poses with a bow and arrow, because she is Katniss except beautiful.
And there you have it! Wonkette has its newest pet Republican, and therefore we will agree with her that she is, er, sexy, which after all is a state of mind. [MindyMeyer]Related
