DITCHING THE DONKEY: NY Councilman Leaves Dems, Joining the GOP

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.06.22

The donkeys lose another one.

According to a report from Fox Ness, New York Councilman Ari Kagan has officially left the Democratic Party; Kagan is a council member from Brooklyn who is citing surging crime as one of the reasons for his departure.

“Every month I found myself, like, ‘What am I doing in the Democratic Party?’” Kagan said during a Monday news conference announcing his switch. “It’s not about numbers or an election. It’s about [sending] a message.”

“The Democratic Party in New York was moving to [the] left at such a speed I couldn’t keep up,” Kagan urged. “It’s not me leaving the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party very quickly started to leave me.”

“I believe right now, the Democratic Party is doing everything possible in New York City to make everybody less safe,” the councilman said.

Kagan currently represents parts of Coney Island, Gravesend and Sea Gate.
