Money for Nothing?

Posted by azi on February 13, 2006

It’s hard to imagine what Marc Landis will do with the $126,295.07 he has left over from his failed Assembly race on the Upper West Side.

The key may lay in Charles Simon and Mike Lupinacci (and even Tom Weiss, if he gets on the ballot).

If Linda Rosenthal, the establishment’s official candidate–complete with party backing and a New York Times endorsement–doesn’t win in convincing fashion this Feb. 28, it may make for an exciting November when she (or whoever wins that special election) is up for re-election.

Lenora’s Line

Posted by azi on February 8, 2006

The state’s Independence Party dissolved the Queens, Brooklyn and Bronx county committees this weekend because of their relationship with Lenora Fulani.

Still in tact are the county committees in Staten Island and Manhattan. The latter has two special elections coming up on Feb. 28th.

UWS assembly candidate Mike Lupinacci defended his cross-endorsement from the Independence Party (who is running on his own New Leadership line).

“I don’t hold it against Democrats that Strom Thurmond was a Democrat,” he said.

Lenora and Strom. What a pair.
