NY City Council candidate references “Greedy Jewish Landlords” in email

Thomas Lopez-Pierre, a candidate for New York’s city council has been criticised after making an antisemitic comment in an email.

He sent out a fundraising email saying that he would “SAVE HARLEM from Greedy Jewish Landlords”.

He claimed that these landlords were trying to “push Black and Hispanic tenants out of Harlem”.

Various figures on the City Council penned Lopez-Pierre an open letter demanding an apology.

He has previously described Mark Levine as a “white Jewish candidate” who wants to “sneak into office like a thief in the night” and also used the n-word.
