AOC Shouts Out City Island But Bronx PPP and Schumer's US Attorney Picks Not Yet Answered

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

NEW YORK, SDNY & EDNY, March 31 – The difference between retail and wholesale politics was again on display Wednesday night, in a town hall to The Bronx and Queens, with SDNY and EDNY questions not yet answered. 

   Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a Zoom town hall from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, at which she took constituent questions including from an seven year old who asked, What do you do if people don't like you? To thine own self be true was the answer, along with references to a desired ramp at the Jackson Heights Post Office, possible earmarks for City Island, and a shout-out to the Amazon workers in Alabama.

 There was not much on international affairs (for example Tuesday's life sentence for Honduras' president's brother for narco-trafficking, on which Inner City Press was interviewed on UNeTV, here and here from 3:10), much less the United Nations, which continues to ban Bronx-based Inner City Press. Time for a Constitutional constituent inquiry, despite impunity?

  Then there was a press gaggle, also on Zoom. Inner City Press was told to ask its questions there, and submitted: "On the PPP program, in the first round(s) only 12% of NYC small businesses got PPP loans, versus 24% in Nebraska. And in The Bronx, the rate of PPP lending was every lower. What is being done to make the program and banks more accountable?   And, if you have any thoughts on Sen Schumer's recent nominations to head the US Attorney's Offices in SDNY and EDNY."

  Perhaps it was the tech glitches, or the lateness of the hour (7:50 pm). But the questions have yet to be answered. Watch this site.
