Dirty Politics in Brooklyn

The Politicker, obviously, carries no brief for State Senator John Sampson’s equation of slavery and disengagement on his jaunt to Gaza.

Still, this bright orange postcard raises the eyebrows. It was mailed, anonymously — using first class stamps, rather than bulk-rate — to Brooklyn residents last week.

“SAMPSON PANDERS,” the card leads. “Selling Out Our Community.”

Selling out to whom? Well, the magnified clip from the Daily News story makes it pretty clear that the card, apparently targeted at black residents, is accusing Sampson of selling out to the Jews.

This is particularly curious because Sampson is the only black candidate in the race for Brooklyn District Attorney. So the candidate on whose behalf these fliers are being mailed out isn’t a member of the community so indignantly defended.
