Brooklyn Politics

Of all the strange little tricks played on election day this year, the most widespread — and ineffective — seem to have been the game-playing with endorsements on palm cards and leaflets handed out around Brooklyn polling stations. (Al Sharpton and David Dinkins, somehow, endorsed every one of the Brooklyn organization’s candidates.)

Anyway, a reader faxes over another sample: Council Member Lew Fidler‘s palm card. Fidler played a key role in Joe Hynes’s reelection campaign and backed Freddy for Mayor. But his palm features the organization candidates, Miller and Sampson.

Why? Who knows.
