Council member for the 44th District, David Greenfield, is calling on the Democrat Party to remove their candidate, Thomas Lopez Pierre, from their party. The demand comes after Lopez Pierre released a campaign video in which he accused “greedy Jewish landlords” for instigating an ethnic cleansing in his neighborhood.
“Together, we can defeat the greedy Jewish landlords that are engaged in ethnic cleansic, pushing black and Latino families out of Harlem, Washington Heights and the Upper West Side,” Lopez Pierre said in the video, which he took standing in front of Councilman Mark Levine’s office, who he accused of being bankrolled by Jewish landlords.
Lopez Pierre is currently attending a court ordered anger management program after confessing to a violation of a restraining order filed by his ex-wife. The violation occurred when he spread flyers in his ex’s neighborhood, asking neighbors to reports any sightings of abuse that his ex may inflict on their three children.
