GOP CANDIDATE USES "N" WORD ON LIVE TV
Phil Cosme who has used his tv show to raise money, attack and harass the Mayor and other elected officials, unwarrantably, has sunk to a new low. Mr.Cosme apparently feels it is appropriate to utter racial obscenities on his tv show, which he did multiple times on his Wednesday show. When confronted by a concerned African American, who called into his show, Mr. Cosme tried to justify the unjustifiable comment by saying the word is in the dictionary. The question is how will the KPA commission handle the situation, thus far the KPA has done nothing to him becasue if they take action against him he threatens and intimidates the members.
At this point it has gone too far, Mr. Cosme has crossed the line and the commission needs to take immediate action. The KPA must suspend Mr.Cosme's program and in it's place they should hold some sort of program on tolerance and diversity. I encourage all people to contact your elected officials listed below, and ask that action be taken on this matter or that the plug be pulled on the cable commission. If the cable commission refuses to do it's job then it's time to hand the operation back to Time Warner.
Mayor James Sottile - firstname.lastname@example.org
KPA Chair, Lisa Alt - email@example.com
The e-mail addresses for Kingston Aldermen are as follows:
ward + the number they represent @ci.kingston.ny.us, for example Alderman Teetsel who represents Ward 1, would be firstname.lastname@example.org
More disturbing, Mr.Cosme is running for Alderman. Can you imagine this guy as a public servant? The last thing we need is a bigot on the council. Also the last thing the GOP needs is a bigot running on their ticket, an unfair stereotype often associated with the party. I call upon Mr.Cahill, Mr.Walker, and all other Republican candidates to denounce Mr.Cosme's actions. How can they allow someone like this to associated with them.
