New York Democrat in hot water with his party after pushing out black Democrat representative in redistricting conflict

Democrats are going to have a difficult time in the 2022 midterm elections. Perhaps that’s why it’s become so cut-throat in the runup.

House Democrat Campaign Chair Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) has angered those in his party after he switched to an easier district for a guaranteed win, Breitbart reported. Worse yet, he bumped Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) from his district, who is black.

New York’s Seventeenth Congressional District, where Jones is currently serving, is an uncontested race making Maloney a shoo-in. However, local New York Democrats believe Maloney should stay put and run in New York’s Tenth Congressional District despite the redrawn maps.

Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) has leveled discrimination accusations against Maloney. “The thinly-veiled racism here is profoundly disappointing,” he said in a tweet.

Others charged him with pure political selfishness. State Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, who was attempting to prevent Maloney from taking advantage of the situation, called him “a selfish, corporate Democrat” for this action.

“What hurt the party was having the head of the campaign arm not stay in his district, not maximize the number of seats New York can have to hold the majority,” Biaggi said. “Maloney cares more about short-term wins and holding on to his power than strengthening the Democratic Party,” she later told the American Prospect and New York Focus.

Dutchess County Democratic Committee Chairwoman Elisa Sumner said they begged Maloney not to make this move. “We already had [political] machines and running, and he just came in and cleared the field,” she said. Worse yet, she claimed Maloney had “intimated that he wanted to be in this district because it was closer to the New York City media market.”

Maloney is more concerned with his own political future than the success of his party. However, regardless of what happens in New York, Democrats are in serious trouble across the country.
