Never Trump Opponent’s Goons Harass Joseph “Joey Salads” Saladino at GOP Event
On November 6, 2019, team members of Nicole Malliotakis’ campaign harassed Joseph “Joey Salads” Saladino while attending the SI GOP post-election event at The Local, a bar and grill on Staten Island.
According to the Saladino campaign, Alexandra Sherrer, a previous member of Nicole Malliotakis’ staff and a long-time friend was “making extremely vulgar gestures, booing, clapping in Joey’s face, and harassing Joey throughout the event.” All of this took place while Nicole Malliotakis was in attendance with a member of her Congressional campaign staff at the event.
Neither of them disciplined their associate. Previously, Alexandra Sherrer was removed from Facebook for trying to share nude photos of Saladino. The candidate for New York’s 11th congressional district has nearly 2.7 million subscribers on YouTube, which includes many children.
A few months ago, BLP reported that Saladino was aggressively confronted by another Malliotakis supporter, Liam McCabe, the head of the Verrazzano Republicans at a different event. Adam Korzeniewski, Saladino’s Political Director, intercepted Liam and kept him from harassing Saladino and explain to him that they were there to meet Nick Langworthy, the incoming Republican Party Chairman at the time.
Korzeniewski stated that “Malliotakis’ campaign is showing a consistent pattern of engaging in intimidation efforts against Joey Saladino.”
He added, “It is utterly unacceptable for a political campaign to behave in such ways. Not only does it illustrate her and her campaign’s lack of professionalism, but it hurts the electoral process.”
Malliotakis has lately encountered pushback for her controversial track record on conservative issues, such as her vote in favor of New York’s SAFE Act, one of the most expansive gun control measures in the country.
Saladino is the 11th district’s only America First candidate who will apply his working class values to Congress while also taking advantage of his vast social media following of over 10 million followers to bring prosperity to the district.
