Silver Challenger Fund-Raises at Hipster Bar

One benefit to running against a longtime incumbent, as one of Sheldon Silver’s Democratic primary opponents shows, is that you can raise money in eye-catching amounts, like $32 (for the number of years Silver has been in office), or $354 (which is the number of millions NYC lost when they shot down congestion pricing).

Also, notably, I’d be willing to bet that the Assembly speaker has spent comparatively little time at Piano’s, the Lower East Side music venue where, according to this flier, Paul Newell is holding his May 22 event.
