Weprin Will Support Obama
Former NYC Council Finance Committee Chairperson, current State Assemblymember and 24th Assembly District Democratic Party State Committeemember and District leader David Weprin’s claim that he is undecided about supporting President Obama lacks any credibility. Weprin is a loyal member in good standing with his own 24th State Assembly District club house, Queens County and New York State Democratic Party. Since being elected to the New York City Council in November 2001, in every primary and general election, Weprin has faithfully worked for each and every NYC Council, Queens Borough President, Queens District Attorney, NYC Public Advocate, NYC Comptroller, State Assembly, State Senate, State Attorney General, State Comptroller, Governor, Congressmember, Senator and Presidential candidate endorsed by the Queens County regular Democratic Party organization. The one lone exception is when he had the rug pulled from under him in June 2009. At the 11th hour, his Queens County Democratic Party organization selected then Councilmember
John Lui for NYC Controller for the September 2009 Democratic Party. Weprin stayed in a four way race coming in dead last with only 6% of the vote.
Regardless if Weprin wins or loses the 9th Congressional District Special Election to replace Anthony Weiner — it is a sure bet after procrastinating in attempting to obtain the support of Jewish and pro-Israel supporters who are not enamored with Obama, he will endorse and enthusiastically support President Obama for reelection in 2012. Weprin doesn’t want to alienate Obama supporters within the 9th CD and NYC. He will need their support in the 2013 Democratic Primary for NYC Controller. This could be his real agenda.
