Elsewhere: Flake Backs Bloomberg, Caldera Resigns Over Flyover

Rev. Floyd Flake, one of the most influential black ministers in the city, endorsed Michael Bloomberg. So did Representative Barbara Clark, the leader of the state Black, Puerto Rican and Latino caucus.
Louis Caldera, head of the White House Military Office, has taken the fall for the downtown flyover.
Peter Drago, an operative who worked for Mario Cuomo, Sheldon Silver, Eliot Spitzer, David Paterson, and others in the Capitol, died today.
