Anti China Rant
The question so many have been asking — where is this woman from? And who is she?
Eyewitness News traced her face mask back to a performing arts theater in Woodstock.
On their website, there were posts from people claiming to know the suspect, saying they “will never speak to her again.”
Multiple sources close to the investigation then confirmed to Eyewitness News that it was the suspect.
By Tuesday, she had deleted her social media accounts and multiple calls and emails to her went unanswered.
Several family members would not put us in touch with her either. Eyewitness News even tried to reach her at her home.
It turns out she lives near where the incident occurred on Sunday, at 22nd and First Avenue.
She is neighbors with her victims, but she isn’t your ordinary neighbor. Her name is Maura Moynihan, the daughter of the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
She admitted to Eyewitness News on Wednesday, that she is the woman seen in the video.
In a confrontation that Lee recorded from outside the cab, Moynihan, who is seated inside, repeatedly claims that he is “assaulting” her.
“She said to go back to f—king china,” Lee can be heard on the video. “Say that racist s—t again. You said Communist China?” “Well isn’t that where you’re from,” Moynihan replies, the video shows.
The couple told the news outlet they left soon afterward. But after they crossed the street, they said Moynihan opened the cab window and again barked, “Go back to Communist China!” Police said they are investigating the incident.
Moynihan, while she admitted being the woman in the video, denied to WABC that she made racist remarks. “It had nothing whatsoever to do with any bias or racism or anti-Asian American prejudice, as has been wrongly suggested,” she said in a statement.
“I have devoted most of my life to working with and for Asian people, most particularly in the cause of securing basic human rights for the Tibetan people in their continuing struggle against Communist China,” Moynihan said.
