The Race for Brooklyn District Attorney

I was pretty invested in this race, because there isn’t another local politician that I dislike more than Charles Hynes. The man protected pedophiles in order to gain votes. Disgusting. But this race was also an important indication of whether or not voters would come out in support of a new candidate and be able to overthrow an entrenched one. Hynes had served for over 20 years! That’s a long time. But he’s been unseated and this was just one of the races that allowed us all to feel pretty good about ourselves. Change has come.

  • this is amateurish and blatantly biased.

    shameful coverage of a serious election with very serious consequences, especially for boroklyn’s redevelopment future.

  • @politico It’s true. I’m really biased against your boy Anthony Weiner. But it wasn’t just me! It was also 95% of the NYC Democrats who voted yesterday. So, while it must be hard for you, you’re just going to have to learn to move on. Good luck!
