I ran into City Council candidate Mathieu Eugene outside PS 139 in Brooklyn today, shortly after he voted for himself.
Eugene, with a cadre of campaign supporters up and down the block handing out his literature, told me that when he tried voting for himself, the lever in the booth was stuck.
"The machine didn't work," he said.
A few minutes later, one of his opponents, Harry Schiffman, passed us on his way to get some coffee. He said he had no trouble voting.
