Astorino Fires Back At Website Questioning His Whereabouts
September 23, 2014

The Westchester County Democratic Committee is wondering where in the world County Executive Rob Astorino is.

The Democrats launched a website, whereisrob.com, questioning the time he has spent outside of Westchester County and the state since his re-election and the start of his new term. When asked about the web site on Wednesday, Astorino quickly shifted the topic to the current governor’s whereabouts.

“I’m waiting for the dropdown box on that website to show where Cuomo has gone for his $50,000-a-plate Hollywood fundraiser or Somos in Puerto Rico or $25,000 breakfast in D.C.,” he said. “I’m waiting for that drop box, too. Or maybe it’s under hypocritical drop box, I’m not sure. But I’m not concerned about that nonsense.”

The single-page website features a video blasting Astorino for his travel, statistics about where he has gone and a spot to put in a zip code and email address to submit a “get back to work Rob” form. It is paid for by the Westchester County Democratic Committee.

“These are the same Democrats … that were just thrown out of the leadership of the county board by their own Democrats, so that should speak volumes,” Astorino added.
