Schumer's On-the-Record Praise of Maloney
Monday, September 13, 2010 - 11:14 AM
From an email Senator Schumer sent to Maloney supporters this morning:
"Carolyn is a smart, forward-thinking and effective legislator."
The praise is particularly noteworthy for those obsessed with the New York political chatter, which often isn't kind to Maloney, as evidenced by this line in a recent profile of the congresswoman when she was contemplating a Senate bid against Kirsten Gillibrand: "Mr. Schumer, in particular, is known to have a low opinion of her abilities and her intellect."
