(Slay News) – A congressional candidate challenging Dem Rep Jerry Nadler published a porn video to try to get some attention in his quest to unseat Nadler. Mike Itkis is an independent candidate taking on Nadler.
Itkis said: “If I would just talk about it, it wouldn’t demonstrate my commitment to the issue. And the fact I actually did it was a huge learning experience, and it actually influenced items on my platform.
“I’m very much an introvert. I’m kind of a nerd who doesn’t like to be the center of attention if I can avoid it. But I thought the issues I’m trying to address are so important. I wanted to have my issues talked about in some way.”
The Nadler campaign refused to comment.
Mike Zumbluskas, the Republican in the race said:
“You gotta do what you gotta do.
“The media ignores everybody that’s not a Democrat in the city.”
Itkis’ platform is:
Government must take responsibility for creating a secure computing environment for individuals and maintaining balance between security and privacy
Create a Federal Cyber Security Agency that will operate a secure civilian network
Operate a network that assures low levels of risk to confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data for the benefit of US civilian population
Provide cyber training to the population at large
Enforce standards of behavior
Protect the privacy of civilian users of the secure network
Provide users with a government verified digital identity
The network will NOT be operated by law enforcement, intelligence, or military organizations
Actively oppose the conservative idea that sex should only happen between a man and a woman who are married to each other
Right to NOT become a parent in case of pregnancy – redefine abortion debate as a right to unplanned sex
Abortion rights for women
Men should not be required to support biological children without prior agreement
End government involvement in marriage – no discrimination based on marital status
Decriminalize sex between consenting adults
Protect privacy rights
End adultery laws

United States must be clear and honest about its political objectives and the desired end-state in Ukraine. Even if the objectives differ from those of the Ukrainian government.
Territory is less important than people
Civil rights are just as important as free and fair elections.
Transition to a peace time economy must focus on economic equality over market principles
