Carolyn Maloney, Retract Your Comment and Apologize to Autism Families

Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney has just won the Democratic primary against her challenger. Autism Investigated told readers to tell her she deserves to lose her seat after her campaign said she “does not believe there is a link between vaccinations and autism.” The statement came as her opponent Suraj Patel reportedly out-raised her in campaign dollars. What she should do now is retract that statement and apologize to the autism community.

In fairness to Maloney, however, Suraj Patel is a real piece of work. He called Carolyn Maloney an “anti-vaxxer” as an insult, claiming she “attacks doctors and scientists.” In other wacky news, he said he wants to abolish US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Nothing stops the spread of vaccine-“preventable” diseases like open borders, apparently. The voters weren’t convinced, and he lost to her in a blowout.

Now it’s up to Carolyn Maloney to make things right and restate her commitment to vaccine safety. Whatever one thinks of her specific policy proposals, she knows about the vaccine problem:

Currently, the CDC has responsibility for both vaccine safety and promotion, which is an inherent conflict of interest increasingly garnering public criticism.

As a Congressional Democrat, she is in a unique position to turn her party around on vaccination. Autism Investigated wants to like her, wants to support her and wants to celebrate her re-election. Do the right thing, apologize and re-emphasize your commitment to solving the vaccine problem, Congresswoman Maloney!

Tell Congresswoman Baloney She Deserves To Lose Her Seat

NY PostA campaign spokesman for Rep. Carolyn Maloney said the congresswoman now “does not believe there is a link between vaccinations and autism.”“Congresswoman Maloney believes in the efficacy and safety of vaccines. She was at the forefront of efforts to protect funding for vaccines in the Affordable Care Act,” the rep said.

And subsequent Post editorial:

It’s a small win for science that Maloney’s admitting the truth[AI note: as if!]. It’ll be a bigger one if she (and others who did the same) apologizes for promoting a deadly myth.

Will wonders never cease? Actually, it seems they just did. The mystery appears to have been solved by a NY Times reporter, of all people.

The last time Autism Investigated asked readers to contact her office years ago, you were all told to be polite. Don’t worry about politeness this time. Express yourself however you deem fit (no threats, of course).
