Dem Lawmaker Says Not Providing Free College To Prisoners Akin To Slavery


There’s an old saying in public speaking courses – say it out loud to yourself first, you just might learn that it sounds ridiculous.

With that in mind: Assemblyman Jeffrion Aubry (D-Queens) probably should have practiced this one in the mirror.

Aubry, upset over Governor Cuomo’s backtracking on a proposal to provide free education to prisoners, compared criticism of the program to slavery.

Via The Record:

The governor two years ago came to the Black and Puerto Rican Caucus church service and decided to announce that we, the state of New York, were going to reinvest in college in the state prisons in New York,” Aubry said. “And a hell storm blew him back 20 years into the hole.”
