Peter Douche is a parody of a parody.


To those who don't know the backstory, Peter Douche gained notoriety after being permanently suspended from Twitter and sentenced to life in Twitmo for speaking too much truth to power.  To avoid his sentence, he has been sequestered in an Ecuadorian Cafe inside of Embassy Suites. In response to the outrageous ban, the online campaign #FreePeterDouche trended on Twitter. The story of his censorship has been highlighted by The Jimmy Dore Show, Julian Assange, and numerous progressive outlets. 

 

When Peter was unjustly censored, he pledged to use the attention his situation received to expand his voice. "An Inconvenient Douche" is the result. This book is not about Peter Douche's personal story, rather it's an assessment of our current political landscape, as seen through the eyes of a three-time losing political strategist of color.

Adam served in the Navy from 2009-2013. When the time came for Adam to end his active service, he knew it was time to make his life long dream come true. He was ready to focus on his future, and New York City. He applied to John Jay College, where he majored in Political Science. He did not see this major just as a career path, but rather a chance to give back to the people, and the city that gave him so much hope, and power to dream big as a child.


In 2014-2015, he spent a year participating in a Veteran Affairs work-study program. Here he aided fellow student veterans with getting set up in school. Also educating them on resources the school offered, along with beginning the some times arduous process to receive VA healthcare.


In 2016, he had the privilege of taking part in the New York State Assembly internship program where he worked in the Albany office of assembly member, Michael Benedetto from The Bronx who was the Chair of the Veterans Affairs Committee at the time. During this time Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was indicted for campaign finance charges, and in the following months Senate Maj. Leader Dean Skelos was brought up on similar charges. This was a turning point for Adam, like most people he knew the government had flaws but not like this. He has since made it his mission to help get our government on the path to respectability and legitimacy.


Although he has lived in numerous areas across different boroughs, he has settled in the 64th district. This where he has chosen to plant roots, and build a life. As your assemblyman he will encourage an actual open door policy, where constituents will be able to reach their rep without jumping through hoops. He plans to create efficient communication with the intention to keep you in the loop regarding upcoming legislation at all times.
