Democrat Tedra Cobb is running for Congress in New York’s 21st Congressional District, and on Wednesday, The Post-Star announced that Cobb had taken the paper’s no-lies pledge, which Cobb said would be no problem.

See, the thing with that is, Cobb was just caught on video telling supporters she wants an “assault rifle” ban, a position she seems to think she needs to keep from the voters at large.

The Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski reported Wednesday:

Tedra Cobb, the Democratic candidate in New York’s 21st Congressional District, told a group of teenage supporters that she supports a ban on certain firearms but won’t say so publicly for fear of losing her election.

“When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?’ And I said they should be banned,” Cobb can be heard saying in the video recorded by one of the attendees. “And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it was a buffet, and I just said to her, I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that.”

When the woman pushed back on Cobb keeping quiet on how she feels about banning certain firearms, Cobb said coming out in favor of a gun ban would lead to her losing her bid against Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik.

Honesty and integrity, huh?
