Congressman Zeldin Statement on McDonald's Ax-Wielding Suspect's Release on Cashless Bail

NEW YORK – Today, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), the Republican Party and Conservative Party Nominee for Governor, issued the following statement after a man who wielded an ax, shattering tables and walls and swinging at customers in a McDonald’s in New York City, was released on cashless bail:

“In Kathy Hochul’s New York, you can walk into a McDonald’s, use your ax to hack up tables and walls, swinging it wildly at other customers, and be released from custody without bail.

“Cashless bail must be repealed! Judges need discretion to weigh dangerousness.

“On November 8th, New Yorkers need to fire Kathy Hochul and take back our streets!”
