Holtzman notes that PIX 11 relies heavily on text polling voters who argued they were underestimating older people because they were older — hence older candidates who are proven voters.

"It's surprising that someone who played an important role in New York's political history is left out," she said.

Sonia Ossorio, head of the New York chapter of the National Organization for Women, who supported Holtzmann, also yelled a foul.

"Older voters are running for public office after being kicked out of the debate stage because of polls that underestimate older voters. Older voters are the most unreliable voters on the planet." said Ossorio.

She said Holtzmann was a "formidable" candidate who was "repeatedly elected to multiple public offices."
