Tell Albany County Democratic Chair Jack Flynn: Maureen O'Brien Must Resign!
On July 23, 2017, Albany County Democratic Party Secretary Maureen O'Brien made some disturbing comments about a Councilman. She specifically mentioned Judd Krasher's sexuality in her comments. She further went on to say that his family is ashamed of him and spread rumors that his family sent him to conversion therapy to "fix him." This has since been proven by his mother to be a false statement. Ms. O'Brien, as a licensed therapist, should have known the danger in bringing up conversion therapy as an insult when it is a form of "treatment" that has caused thousands of suicides in the LGBTQ community.
Chairman Jack Flynn was contacted immediately. He has remained silent and continues to try and hide the issue at hand. Speak up and let him know that Maureen O'Brien is unfit to serve in her current position. Tell him that we will not tolerate this form of hatred and bigotry in our city and in our Democratic Party. Tell him that it is time for Maureen O'Brien to hand in her resignation.
