Out, War on Women; In, War of Women. NY US Senate Race Is Long v. Gillibrand:

Long told supporters that Gillibrand is even more "liberal" than President Obama, and rightly so.

Wendy Long said that gender politics won’t be an issue in the general election if New York Republicans joined New York Conservatives in nominating her to run for United States Senator against incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand because she and Gillibrand have similar backgrounds. Both are graduates of Dartmouth College and attorneys who clerked for federal appellate court judges. Both also are married with two children.

Yesterday most New York Republican primary voters picked Long, depriving the women chosen by National Journal as the most liberal United States Senator of her favorite scurrilous tactic.

"Kirsten Gillibrand said she wants more women in politics," Long told her supporters at a victory celebration in New York City. "Tonight we are here to grant her wish."

Gillibrand spokesman Glen Caplin said the senator called Long to congratulate her and "looks forward to running a strong campaign based on her record of fighting hard and delivering as a strong independent voice for New York families," while State Democratic Committee co-chairman Keith Wright in a prepared statement released accused Long of holding "extreme ideological views."

Gillibrand and Long both identify themselves as Catholic, but Long actually professes the principles of the faith to which she converted as an adult and teaches as a catechism teacher.

Team Gillibrand must consider being faithful to the Catholic faith "extreme."

Long told supporters that Gillibrand is even more "liberal" than President Obama, and rightly so.

Obama was the Senator from ACORN and then ACORN's man in the White House, but after the ACORN Pimp and Pro sting he publicly distanced himself from ACORN by dropping them as a census partner and signing the bill defunding ACORN.

Even New York's senior Senator, Chuck Schumer, an honoree at ACORN's 39th and last gala in 2009, voted to defund ACORN, BUT NOT GILLIBRAND!

New York's Working Families Party, the ACORN party in New York, had backed since she first ran for Congress and posed as a blue-dog Democrat, before being appointed to replace Hillary Clinton and to become America's most "liberal" United States Senator.

New Yorkers deserve the truth and plenty of debates.

That must be an "extreme" idea that Gillibrand hates.

Yes, Gillibrand is an attorney too, but debating Long is not a politically smart thing for her to do.

Gillibrand has $10,000,000 to spent on her campaign and will raise more.

Buying an election doesn't seem to be an "extreme" idea to Gillibrand.

That's not Long's way.

The candidate with the most money came in last in the Republican Senate primary and paid himself back a nearly one million dollar loan even before the primary because Long had not been deterred by his personal wealth and the Republican nomination was proving not to be for sale.

Long, an articulate attorney who clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas, won by campaigning across New York and bested her rivals in debate and joint appearances, not by outspending them.

DEMAND DEBATES!

The liberal media establishment will continue to work to keep Gillibrand in the Senate, but fortunately the voters will decide.

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.
