Actress Diane Neal, a Hurley resident, launches independent bid for 19th Congressional District seat

TV crime drama actress and Hurley resident Diane Neal has launched an independent bid for New York’s 19th Congressional District seat.

Neal, 41, who had a long-running stint on NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and also a recurring role on CBS’ “NCIS,” is a registered Democrat, according to the Ulster County Board of Elections, and will need 3,500 signatures on petitions to secure a spot on the November ballot as an independent.

Interviewed Sunday in Woodstock, where the six Democrats seeking their party’s nomination in the 19th District had gathered for a debate, Neal noted she has advantage over others seeking the House seat because she already has gotten the better of Donald Trump.

She said they met about 15 years ago when she was a judge on TV show “The Apprentice,” which Trump hosted before he got into politics, and that during an after-party, she endeavored to check whether his hair was real.

“Donald and I are roughly the same height,” she said. “After talking with him for a while, he stood in front of me [with his back turned], and I slipped a chopstick right in that thing because I wanted to see what it was made out of, how it was attached.

“I started getting a nice amount of loft,” she said. “I’m sure that someone has a tape of this somewhere … and I swear to God it was like I was about to see the singularity. It was like all time and space was ending. Then he walked away and he took the chopstick with him, and for the last 15 years, I’ve wondered, where did it fall out?”

Neal said she met Trump more than a dozen times and was never subject to inappropriate behavior by him, which numerous other women have alleged.

“Keep in mind I play the meanest people on TV, and usually I play people with guns,” she said. “People tend not to mess with me.”

Neal played Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak on “Law & Order: SVU” from 2003 to 2008 and again in the 2011-12 season. On “NCIS,” she portrayed Agent Abigail Borin in six episodes between 2010 and 2014.

Neal has lived in Hurley since 2014 and has been active with the Urban Arts Partnership, the Waterkeeper Alliance, the Young Leaders of the RFK Center for Human Rights, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Thirst Project, the Joyful Heart Foundation and the Middle Way House, according to a written statement announcing her candidacy.

She began undergraduate studies at Harvard University in 2009 and expects to earn a degree in May, the statement says.

After listening to the Democratic candidates debate in Woodstock, Neal said she’s pleased with her decision to run as an independent for the seat currently held by U.S. Rep. John Faso, R-Kinderhook.

“I heard a lot of really dedicated people who are passionate about this,” she said. “However, what I didn’t hear was how any of them would appeal to anyone outside of this room, [such as] my cross-bow neighbor who gives me sweet venison. He’s not even going to listen to these guys.”

The 19th Congressional District comprises all of Ulster, Greene, Columbia, Sullivan, Delaware, Schoharie and Otsego counties; most of Dutchess County; parts of Rensselaer and Montgomery counties; and a small section of Broome County.

Neal said her political views are “a lot of everything.”

“I’m a little Libertarian, I’m a lot liberal, mostly progressive, but I have this amazing ability to be able to take really complicated policy and break it down into edible sound bites, which is something most progressive liberals cannot do,” she said.

“I love this country,” she added. “The majority of my family, most are active service at the moment. Even my grandmother, who escaped the Holocaust, she came to New York, she joined the Navy. She was a bad ass, she was awesome.”

Neal said she contemplated running for Congress for about a year before deciding she has enough faith in the democratic system to take a chance.
