Joe DioGuardi on Foreign Policy

 


Yes, I was a lobbyist; to fight Albanian genocide

GILLIBRAND TV AD CLAIM: A former congressman turned lobbyist.

DIOGUARDI REFUTATION: After leaving Congress, DioGuardi worked to end the genocide of Albanians in the former Yugoslavia. He traveled from safe house to safe house collecting documents that revealed the gruesome realities that were occurring; he shared these with Congress, and thereby qualifies as a lobbyist. While DioGuardi was fighting genocide, Gillibrand worked to help Philip Morris, and maintains strong ties with Big Tobacco.

Push the UN to address human rights abuse in Cuba

DioGuardi co-sponsored H.CON.RES.67 : A concurrent resolution expressing the sense of Congress regarding the continuing disregard and systematic abuse of the most fundamental rights by the Government of Cuba and the failure of the United Nations Human Rights Commission to address the human rights situation in Cuba. The bill garnered 98 co-sponsors but died in the Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere Affairs.
