Child Victims Act advocate ‘trying to keep the issue alive’ with 12 primary endorsementsBy Kenneth Lovett, first published in the New York Daily News
ALBANY — The upstate investor who created a political action committee to advocate for child sex victims is backing candidates in 12 state primaries this coming Tuesday.
Gary Greenberg, who was sexually abused as a child, has used the Fighting for Children PAC he created earlier this year to help fund and support the different candidates who support the Child Victims Act that remains bottled up in the Legislature.
Greenberg has held three rallies across the state — including one in New York City Thursday for Marisol Alcantara and Carmen de LaRosa. Alcantara is involved in a four-way Democratic state Senate primary in upper Manhattan, while de LaRosa is challenging incumbent Democrat Assemblyman Guillermo Linares in the same area.
