A reader passes on this flyer, picked up in around the Atlantic Avenue subway station in Brooklyn.
Beneath the images of the Rev. and Mayor David Dinkins are the candidates they actually back in the local races — City Council Member Letitia James, District Attorney candidate John Sampson — and, beneath them, a few more names, including “Gifford Miller for Mayor of New York City.”
There’s a thin black line that seems meant to allow them to claim that they’re keeping Miller and the others apart from the Sharpton endorsement, but the message is clear.
“A typical Brooklyn Democratic organization trick,” says the reader.
