DAY PRESS RELEASE
Rockland County Legislator Aron Weider has been discovered to be bashing police in an effort to push David Fried to the Hasidic community, using a phone-based news and information network to conduct Yiddish-language outreach as a surrogate of David Fried, an Ed Day press release issued this morning proclaimed.
Day said the original Yiddish recording, available at this link, or by calling 845-414-1114 and pushing “2,” and then “2” again, translates as follows:
“Many say that Ed Day is a pissed off guy… he was a police officer for 40 years… as they say all police officers have… you know… such an outlook that everyone is a criminal until he proves to me that he ain’t. You understand? So… is… is… this is also a strong reason to come out… as they say… I hope that this David Fried will be able to decrease, turn off, the hate that’s going around.”
Ed Day, a 23 (not 40) year veteran of two police departments, said “I call upon David Fried to immediately denounce this offensive and ignorant insult to all police officers, and I call upon Legislator Weider to immediately apologize to the many thousands of police officers in Rockland he insulted in a cynical effort to gain votes for his candidate.”
