Saujani: 'I Might Not Vote'

Wednesday, September 08, 2010 - 11:00 AM

David Freedlander has video of congressional candidate Reshma Saujani floating an unusual idea about the November elections.

Saujani is a first-time candidate running in a Democratic primary against Rep. Carolyn Maloney of Manhatttan. There's been some heated rhetoric on the campaign trail - during their one and only debate yesterday, Saujani repeatedly called Maloney a liar - but there are not substantive differences in their policy agendas.

If there is one defining issue in the race, it's each candidate's relationship to Wall Street - which employs a disproportionate number of residents in the district.

Anybody see Saujani's interview on the Firedoglake site? They asked her about her view of Afghanistan - and her answer made her sound like she was suffering from a bad head injury - all uhhhs and you knows and fumbles - and at the end - I couldn't figure out what she thought. And here she goes again - I am a devoted Dem- who might not vote - but yeah I will - except maybe not. Or uhhh - something.
