Carolyn Maloney Works It

City Hall News, which is fast becoming the go-to outlet for  politicians who threaten to run primary campaigns against Kirsten Gillibrand, reported today that Representative Carolyn Maloney had made yet another serious-looking gesture about her own possible Senate bid by hiring consultant Josh Isay.
