Dems Debate Tibet, Nuking Brooklyn

Today marked the historic first debate between the four Democratic candidates for Mayor.

Well, actually, there were only three candidates at the Hunter College event, as Freddy bagged it. And they just gave their stump speeches and answered questions. And, oh, Virginia didn’t actually give a speech.

There were, according to the official WBAI estimate, a full 54 people in the huge auditorium. One of them left after a scuffle over his question about Tibet. (Anthony did get a chance to deny any link between the Jets Stadium and Chinese human rights violations.)

Giff cleared up one thing for us: “I don’t think there is a proposal to build a nuclear facility in Brooklyn.”
