NYC cop union head calls Gay Congressman a 'whore'

Now faces charges

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

The head of a New York City police union is facing charges after calling a Gay lawmaker a "first-class whore.

" Ed Mullins, head of the NYPD Sergeants' Union, tweeted the derogatory language in September, aiming at then-city councilmember and current congressman Ritchie Torres.

Mullins also referred to New York City's former public health commissioner Oxiris Barbot as a "bitch."

As a result of his remarks, the NYC Civilian Complaint Review Board charged Mullins on February 12 with three counts of abuse: two for offensive language and one for abuse of his authority.

Torres is Afro-Latino and Gay. Barbot is of Puerto Rican descent. Mullins has a long history of racist remarks, and once appeared on Fox News displaying a QAnon coffee mug.

Mullins doubled down on his remarks in a February 15 letter to his union members. In the letter, which was obtained by the New York Post, Mullins declared, "I WILL NEVER BE SILENCED."

"I rightfully called him a 'first-class whore' for his unscrupulous moral values and selling out our safety for his political ambitions. My comment was in direct response to Torres' political campaign against the men and women of the NYPD," Mullins wrote.

Mullins continued, "It came at a time of tremendous turmoil in this City when members of this department were the targets of bottles and bricks being thrown at them. Nor shall we forget police vehicles being firebombed and overturned," Mullins wrote in reference to Black Lives Matter protests last year.

"Make no mistake," he continued, "I stand by my words. Nothing has changed. And I offer no apology!"

Like other police forces - including Seattle police - the NYPD was criticized for excessive use of force during the BLM protests following the murder of George Floyd last March. Torres was one of the department's vocal critics.

Before being elected to Congress in November, Torres represented a Bronx City Council district populated largely by people of color. In the November election, he defeated and anti-LGBTQ Pentecostal minister, Ruben Diaz, Sr., to replace retiring Rep. Jose Serrano.
