Upper East Side in Knots

As far as local politics go, the East Side seems to be divided when it comes to this year’s race for Attorney General.

An invitation to Mark Green’s upcoming comedic fundraiser listed as a vice chair of the event William Samuels, whose sister, Jacqui, is a fundraiser for Carolyn Maloney.

And two East Side District Leaders, Sally Minard and Linda Foa, who are listed as benefactor and patron, respectively, are also close to Maloney. (Ms. Minard held a fundraiser for the congresswoman at her home last year.)

The catch, of course, is that Maloney is supporting Andrew Cuomo, who won the endorsement of the Lex Club by a vote of 69 to 23 over Mark Green after she endorsed him.

Maybe her friends didn’t get the memo.
