  •  Thank you for agreeing (0+ / 0-)

    With my points on the Gentile crowd.  

    My one reason for bringing up the Assembly was because of Silver and the Lopez situation.  Clearly, Silver was wrong in what he did but Lopez had a lot of power (I'm sure you know this) and could have used that against Silver.  

    Not sure if Barron is living in the district, but between him and his wife Inez they've been playing musical chairs and I expect they will continue to do so.  He is a bomb thrower and more, but there have been 1 or 2 times when he's held feet to the fire and I've had to agree with him on what he did.  

    Preet Bharara has all the goods on Smith and Sampson too or he wouldn't have filed charges, and you can't beat Bharara.  They're both going down. Malcom and Sampson will probably make some deal and join Carl Kruger (who was my State Senator) in his new home.  Mercedes Narcisse is from the Carribean part of the district, has good credentials and could win with the help of Jeffries, other community members and County Leader Frank Seddio who took over leadership from Lopez when we threw him out and although I was supporting Joanne Simon for this position Seddio has been working with the progressive members of County Committee which Lopez wouldn't.
