Lenora Fulani, Boon to Consultants

I asked Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf what he thought about the prospect of Independence Party activist Lenora Fulani getting into into the 2009 mayor's race.

His assessment: she would be "great fodder for any negative campaign."

UPDATE: Cathy Stewart, New York County Independence Party Chair emailed just now to say, “Negative campaigning is what voters rejected when they elected Mike Bloomberg twice. The issue in 2009  is whether we can keep the Bloomberg era of nonpartisanship going or whether the city is going to revert back to the days of clubhouse politics.”
