Nadler Attacks Maloney for Antivax Past

In The Politics of Autism, I discuss the discredited theory that vaccines cause autism

In the past, Rep. Carolyn Maloney embraced that notion, though she later changed her position.

Kerry Picket at the Washington Times:

Rep. Jerrold Nadler took a swipe Wednesday at his Democratic primary opponent, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, accusing his fellow veteran New York lawmaker of being an “anti-vaxxer” and exaggerating her record as a progressive.

Carolyn and I both present ourselves as progressive, but I think as more people find out about our votes, she voted for the Iraq war. She voted against the Iran [nuclear] deal. She voted to repeal Glass Steagall and she was an anti-vaxxer for a long time,” Mr. Nadler told The Washington Times. “I think people will see the difference.”

Four other Democratic opponents have entered the primary for the newly drawn 12th Congressional District, including Suraj Patel, who previously ran against Mrs. Maloney in the 2020 primary.
