Senator Gillibrand Wants to Run Against a Republican Man, Not Wendy Long

Gillibrand obviously wants to talk about abortion and contraception instead of the actual issues--religious liberty and conscience protection--and she's NOT looking forward to debating even them, much less "the other issues," with Long.

Jimmy Vielkind's latest post on the New York Senate race (http://blog.timesunion.com/capitol/archives/119032/long-and-carvin-on-social-issues/) shows who New York junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand does NOT want to run again in November: Wendy Long. Vieklind not only wrote that "with an $8.1 million war chest, Gillibrand has the advantage at defining her opponents before they can introduce themselves to voters on their own terms," but also reported that "Gillibrand...immediately sought to define Long based on her views on abortion" and "the senator’s spokesman attacked Long as 'far out of step with our state.'"

That's what psychologists call projection: Gillibrand is the one who is "far out of step with our state."

Inconveniently for Gillibrand, National Journal just rank Gillibrand tied for first as the most liberal United States Senator.

Before he was elected President, Obama received that designation from National Journal.

Gillibrand is the extremist in the race.

She's even more extreme than Obama on life issues (and Obama as an Illinois State Senator supported infanticide).

Both Gillibrand and Long are baptized Catholics, but Gillibrand obviously is a "Nancy Pelosi-type Catholic."

As such, Gillibrand led the charge against the Blunt amendment, which would have afforded conscience protection.

Long, a staunch proponent of constitutional fidelity and judicial impartiality, is for it.

Vieklind quoted Long as follows:

"[S]enator Gillibrandd supports Obama’s enforcement of their view on Catholic institutions and all religious institutions and people of conscience who would have a problem with it. I support permitting churches and people of conscience not to abrogate their conscience … I would be willing to stand up for that and vote for the Blunt Amendment and not, in any way, support what the president is doing … She is angry and annoyed with the president for considering any kind of compromise, even though it wasn’t any compromise, it was just completely cosmetic. She was just annoyed that he would even consider backing off in any way.“

Vieklind also quoted Long as saying that Gillibrand talks about "[a]bortion in general" because "she doesn’t want to talk about the other issues.”

Gillibrand obviously wants to talk about abortion and contraception instead of the actual issues--religious liberty and conscience protection--and she's NOT looking forward to debating even them, much less "the other issues," with Long.

Biography - Michael J. Gaynor

Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.

Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.

The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.

Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
