Red alert!

Republican John Faso’s congressional campaign on Tuesday knocked Democrat Zephyr Teachout for receiving a “rave review” from a website that traces its lineage back to The Daily Worker, the newspaper of the Communist Party.

“Zephyr Teachout wins the race for New York’s 19th Congressional District, she will do more than add a seat to the Democratic column,” the article posted to peoplesworld.org states. “She will help bring Bernie Sander’s political revolution to the House.”

In a statement, Faso’s camapign writes in all-caps headline: “Commies backing Teachout in carpetbag run for Congress.”

“It’s no surprise that the Communist Party newspaper would be one-hundred-percent behind this hard left-wing academic,” said Faso campaign manager Dain Pascocello. “They nor she have any connection to the 19th district; this all about getting one of their ideological ilk to a microphone in Washington via any available route. The families of the 19th congressional district have zero to do with their plans.”

Teachout, a Fordham Law school professor, was a staunch supporter of Bernie Sanders’s presidential primary bid against Hillary Clinton, and she was among a handful of Democratic House contenders the Vermont senator endorsed.

Both Faso and Teachout are competing for the Hudson Valley congressional seat being vacated by Republican Rep. Chris Gibson. The Faso campaign has sought to ding Teachout calling her “professor” in press releases; Gibson is retiring from Congress to take a job teaching at Williams College.
