    I just found out she is running and don't know much about her politics. Does she have a shot of winning? What do you think about her?

    She seems pretty far out to the left. She wants to stop arresting people for petty and low level crimes and and end money for cash bail. I am not sure I like that idea. I am with her for legalizing pot. I am probably with her for ending the prosecution of children as adults.

    She thinks there is two systems (or three?) of justice in the state. I think most people agree that the rich have a big advantage with the justice system so there is an agreed upon a rich vs poor system. However, she also focuses on a systematic system of injustice that criminalizes communities of color from birth.

    The video is 2 minutes.

    I just looked at the polls. She is way behind.

    Governor of NYS is a big job.
    She doesn't have the experience or background to support her running for Governor, or even Mayor of NYC.
    She should have started with a run for Congress.

    tough to disagree with that video. Its one piece of a very complex puzzle.
