Last night, I posted on the 22nd Assembly district race and that insinuated that Andy Feldman may have been a Clean Sweep candidate...
I was completely off base and wrong about that and I am deeply sorry for any distress I caused Andy, his supporters and his staff today.
Andy is not a Clean Sweep candidate. I am convinced now that he is a democrat, a moderate democrat, but none-the-less an actual life long democrat. He is a supporter of Planned Parenthood, and his main focus has been public policy particularly the study of economic solutions for anti-poverty issues for literally decades and after a long and thoughtful discussion with him, his staff and several of his supporters, I have been convinced that I was wrong in my original post.
Because of that, I have pulled the entire post and this is my full retraction of all the information relating to Andy's campaign.
Here is an excerpt from Andy's doctoral thesis: "One implication may be that people need more intensive help to prepare them for employment and support them once on the job."
I also want to reiterate that the original post was ONLY my personal observations and conjecture. It was not based on conversations or collusion with any other campaigns or people. I take full responsibility for everything I post here even when I get the story wrong. It was prior to a deeper conversation with Andy and I sincerely apologize again for taking my observations to a level I was not prepared to defend.
What you will always find here at Crawford's Take is what I think, feel, or perhaps even what I suspect. When it's something in that last category, I will always encourage corrections (as I did in the original post) and be clear about my lack of proof (I called it "circumstantial evidence" originally) and post new information as it arises, and even, if warranted, as in this case slap myself on the wrist for posting a theory unresearched in the middle of the night...
All this said, he's still not my candidate in the primary. I think his resume shows a background that is weighted to academics rather than real life, and I find his posted issues page unintelligible as to what he would actually do as our representative.
