Must Have Been Another Comrie

This is a little awkward.

Morshed Alam, who is running for the assembly in Brian McLaughlin’s Queens district against Rory Lancman, sent out <a href="href="literature noting that he was endorsed by Council Member Leroy Comrie.

That’s fine, except for the fact that Comrie says it never happened. Here’s what he says about it now:

“I haven’t endorsed anybody in that race.”

So why did this guy say you did?

“We served on the school board together. He’s been calling me and begging me and calling me and asking me and calling me and asking me. I told him I’d try. But I was in the middle of budget process and wasn’t thinking about anything else.”
