“We continue to support Yang and we still believe that he is a good man and a good person,” said Rabbi Indig, “but he is a new person. We always want to make new friends. But we don’t want to leave our old friends under the car.”
On the other end of the race’s ideological spectrum, more than 40 workers were canceled Wednesday over the campaign of former nonprofit executive Dianne Morales. According to a tweet from the union representing employees in the campaign Miss Morales used to be a favorite of leftist grassroots. But her campaign has grappled with massive internal turmoil in recent weeks.
Ms Morales’ struggles may benefit Ms. Wiley as she attempts to emerge as the standard-bearer of the well-funded leftist party Mr. Stringer also competes for that position. And he’s barely ahead of Mr. Wiley in the NY1 poll.
But last Friday, The New York Times reported on a second woman accusing him of unwanted sexual harassment decades ago. Mr Stringer said he remembered Teresa. Logan, the woman did not. But he said if he made her uncomfortable, he would have to apologize. He had previously denied allegations of making unwanted advances during the 2001 campaign.
in the past few weeks Both Mr. Wiley and Mr. Adams have drawn a number of well-known endorsers who have supported Mr. Stringer in the past.
Mr. Williams which has never endorsed any applicant before said as the city’s public advocate He had considered staying away from the competition. but he said he He “felt uncomfortable and disheartened” with what he performed as rhetorical that was absurd and even terrified the competition. and urged New Yorkers to accept Ms. Wiley’s candidacy. in doing so He cites two former police commissioners, Bernard B. Kerik and Raymond W. Kelly, to whom he recommended running the department in a manner that harms non-white New Yorkers.
“This moment is being dominated by a loud debate about whether New York will return to the ‘bad old days,'” he said, “but for many of us, those ‘bad old days’ run through. Bloomberg and Giuliani pass Kerik and Kelly through persecution and surveillance, especially in more colorful communities.”
