When running for office in the past, New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand tried to make herself look tough on certain issues. She even sounded like a conservative at times. Now that she is running for president as a Democrat however, she is desperately trying to disown her record.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Gillibrand 2020: My Bad
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) has been more than willing to denounce her past positions on guns and immigration as wrong and hurtful in a series of interviews.
The 2020 presidential candidate is one of the most liberal members of the Senate, but she’s called herself “wrong,” “callous,” “embarrassed,” and “ashamed” over her past views when she was a more moderate member of Congress.
Gillibrand represented an upstate New York district in the U.S. House from 2007 to 2009, and, as a member of the Blue Dog Democrats, held heretical views to the modern Democratic Party on illegal immigration and guns.
She sported an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association, an organization she now denounces and proudly holds an “F” rating from, and she opposed amnesty and driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants, called for increased funding for Immigrations and Customs Enforcement—she now calls for ICE’s abolishment—and supported English being the country’s official language.

This about face is not going to work with voters. She looks like a fraud.
