Hevesi's Chance

Bill Hammond takes issue with Alan Hevesi’s refusal to campaign, and thinks it’ll haunt the comptroller, even if he wins re-election.

Every time he puts out an audit about a village clerk with his hand in the till, Hevesi will face questions about his own sticky fingers. Hevesi’s only chance for redemption is to throw himself on the mercy of the court of public opinion. That means accepting debates with Callaghan.
