by League of NY Citizens, ©2016
(Oct. 7, 2016) — Pleased – More Than Pleased – To Report That Folks Have Had Enough of NYS government nonsense. The 47% pay raise has pushed people over the edge enough to “Take Action.” On Sunday we informed some folks of a Grassroots Mission. The email included this: 11 Dollars May Save NY – here’s how: We have a 6; 2-sided flyers that detail the political crimes and corruption in NY. They also urge people to vote incumbents out of office. If YOU email firstname.lastname@example.org we will mail you 200 flyers ($11) for YOU to distribute to homes and businesses. Note: we will respond to all replies – thanks
Our first email went to only 600 addresses. The request for flyers immediately began rolling in. On Monday we had requests for 4,000 flyers. Tuesday morning – my inbox has over 150 requests and more are pouring in. AND the mission email hasn’t gone out to our full Connected Email List yet. Note: we will respond to all replies – thanks
We are now planning:
This Mission WILL Raise An Uproar In Political Circles. It WILL, at the very least, scare the heck out of them. This WILL show them Grassroots Is a Voice to Be Reckoned With.
WE MUST make OUR voice heard – WE CAN DO IT! – NY is “Good Earth” worth saving!!! I wish WE had $10 million to hire an army to get OUR message to every person in NY – BUT – WE don’t. OUR success is up to YOU to spend some time, effort and a small sum of money to make it happen. Just a few thousand Dedicated Grassroots Troops CAN change the government culture. Every person receiving this message have talked the talk – PLEASE – walk the walk. Don’t Sit Quietly Anymore – Take Action – Make It Happen!!!!

Please Spread the word– inform every one of OUR mission – WE CAN MAKE HISTORY!!!
Thanks – Keep Fighting

ALBANY PAY RAISE – UGLY – LAWLESS – CORRUPT :
Cuomo and NY Legislators conspired an outrageous scheme to subvert the law and the NY constitution. The law clearly states legislators have to pass a bill to give themselves a pay raise. A pay raise is now set to automatically commence after this November’s elections without any legal legislative process.
Outrageous Behavior: Cuomo and the Assembly Speaker conspired and planned a large legislature pay raise. But it is “political suicide” for the legislature to vote themselves the pay raise. Ignoring the law they conspired to subvert the legal process. Using Cuomo’s “special committee” they hatched a plan. The committee would recommend a pay raise and the pay raise would automatically take effect by Cuomo without any action by the legislature. Instead of the legislature passing a law to approve the raise they now have to propose and pass a law to refuse the raise. This is, without question, illegal, unethical, and corruption of the highest order.
Pay Raise Details: Currently State senators and assembly members receive a base pay of $79,500. In addition most receive additional compensation between $9,000 and $41,500 for serving on committees. On August 16, 2016 Cuomo’s seven-person Commission on Legislative, Judicial, & Executive Compensation recommended lawmakers’ pay increase of 47% from $79,500 to $116,900 a year. The raise is binding on November 15 – 1 week after elections – unless lawmakers pass a special law of rejection.
Citizen Remedy: The citizens have NO recourse. The citizen have no right to impeach or recall lawless elected officials. The citizens cannot arrest or sue the individuals or the legislature. There is NO procedure to force the lawmakers to obey the law. The only remedy the citizens have is to vote the legislature out of office.
Question: Every NY senator and assemblyman knew about the illegal pay raise scheme. Did any senator or assemblyman take action to stop or alter this lawlessness?
Every NY legislature is Guilty; of conspiracy to defraud the public. Every legislator is guilty of collusion to subvert the law and the constitution. Every legislator condones the Albany culture of corruption.
* ON NOVEMBER 8, 2016 – VOTE ALL INCUMBENTS OUT OF OFFICE *
