At 4:25 PM on Tuesday, Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula formally announced that on Sunday he was among the 40,000 people who attended a lecture given by the Dalali Lama at Rutgers University, and that he was among a smaller — but still massive — group at a reception before the lecture. In Chivukula’s own words: “It has been a goal of mine to meet this most esteemed world leader promoting.” Chivukula doesn’t say what the Dalai Lama was promoting, but it doesn’t matter — the important thing is for voters to know that without his attendance, the crowd may only have been 39,999.
