‘Anybody But Dahroug’

Democracy for New York City’s Lewis Cohen, a fund-raiser, is predictably unhappy that the Democratic establishment is again looking for a candidate to run against Republican State Senator Caesar Trunzo.

DFNYC is officially backing two-time Trunzo opponent Jimmy Dahroug.

“It’s like Weekend at Bernie’s over there," Cohen said, referring to the movie about two guys who prop up a dead guy for weekend full of comedic follies. "They would put up Bernie if they could."

He added, "It seems to us that it’s anybody but Dahroug."
