New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark Viverito is the worst kind of hypocrite.

New York City’s number two, Melissa Mark Viverito was in Puerto Rico with Governor Cuomo this week pushing for US taxpayer funded federal aid in Puerto Rico’s AZ DAD 101814.docxfiscal crisis.  Said Viverito, “I thank Governor Cuomo for leading this trip to Puerto Rico to continue to push for an adequate response from the federal government to the crisis on the island…We need to work together to raise our voice and call on the federal government to act now to help our Puerto Rican brothers and sisters before it is too late.”

Viverito’s hypocrisy is palpable.

As the number two elected official in New York City, she begs for a financial bailout of Puerto Rico from our federal government as she advocates a second presidential clemency for a convicted Puerto Rican separatist terrorist leader, Oscar Lopez Rivera, who claims as his goal Puerto Rican independence from that very government.

Lopez’s FALN murdered my father Frank Connor and three others at New York’s Fraunces Tavern and arrogantly refused the Clintons’ 1999 presidential clemency.  This Puerto Rican terrorist that Viverito sees as a “freedom fighter” was so dedicated to his cause that he chose to remain in prison over freedom.FrauncesTavern-Jan24-1975

Viverito claims to support Puerto Rican independence despite the fact that less than 5% of Puerto Ricans have ever voted for independence.  As recently as 2012, over 60% voted for statehood.

Incredibly, now Viverito begs for a bailout of Puerto Rico’s debt crisis from US taxpayers and a federal government whose enemies she supports, whose national anthem she has refused to salute and to whom she refuses to pledge allegiance.

So which is it Ms. Viverito, are you truly a champion of terrorist Oscar Lopez and his murderous vision for Puerto Rican Independence?

Or are you just another fraud politician feeding at the hand of the government at which you snarl, using Lopez and the Puerto Rican people when it suites your political ambitions?

Pick your poison.
