Torrey’s Rapid Response

Well, somebody’s campaigning against Mike Bloomberg today:

“Bloomberg to NY Mag in 2001: ‘obscene’ to spend too much money on campaigns” is the subject line on the apropos-of-nothing campaign-style email.

“FLASHBACK: April 2001, Bloomberg tells New York magazine: $30 million is too much to spend on a campaign. ‘At some point, you start to look obscene.’”

Thing is, the email came from New York Magazine spokeswoman Serena Torrey, former spokeswoman for the New York State Democratic Party.

The email arrived at 1:12, and by 1:14 another message came in: “Did Serena accidentally just slip back into her old job as State Dem spokesgal?”
