The editor of The Brooklyn Rail, formerly the press guy for Norman Siegel’s campaign, pens a post-mortem love letter to his candidate, with a slight hint of conspiracy:
“Why had Norman’s candidacy clearly rallied the city’s power elite into action? Perhaps because as the Post had said in its earlier editorial, Norman would be ‘more focused on principles than practicalities’—a threatening perspective to those in power…”
He also claims that Hank Sheinkopf (Shein-cough?) coughed on him. Wetly.
