Keepers of the Al

Here’s a tidbit that closes a few circles in New York politics.

All Sharpton’s Keepers of the Dream conference, at which John Kerry is expected to appear next month, is being represented by the new P.R. wing of KnickerbockerSKD (along with the Rev’s longtime aide Rachel Noerdlinger). The move extends Al’s embrace to Stefan Friedman, a former reporter and editorial hand at a tabloid that never really liked Al, as well as his two partners: Josh Isay, who worked on Mike’s campaign, and Micah Lasher, who worked for Mark Green in a capacity that, one imagines, didn’t endear him to the Rev.
