Liveblogging 14th C.D. Debate

I'll be posting

9:01 -- Gary points to empty chair, representing Maria Baez' decision not to participate

9:03-- Alex asks Cabrera about changing parties and moving from Westchester. Cabrera says he's lived here longer than any other place and lists his endorsements; points to the Norwood News visit to his Bronx condo. Says he's proud of his track record in the Bronx

Tapia says she's lived in C.D. for 20 years and has been a Democrat all her life. Cabrera says he's lived here 14 years during the course of his life. Says if being a Democrat is working for the poor, reaching out to the needy, then he's 100% Democrat

Gary asks Cabrera if he's always had these values. He says he wasn't political and skeptical of politics.

Tapia points out that Cabrera went to Liberty University, a conservative southern university. Cabrera says he did non-traditional program on-line and only spent a week at Liberty.

    Liberty University is one of the most conservative ultra-right wing educational insititutions in the US.
    Physically or online, he was trained by that conservative institution and that's the bottom line. He conflicts himself too much. Trained by a conservative school but yet claimed to have Democratic values? Where he got them from if he just switched party last year. Bueno!!!!!
