On Monday, I posted, The Brooklyn DA Inflates Recovered Costs of Prosecution in Exchange for Not Reporting Tax Violations. A comment came in from RationalFaith which ended with a request: “can we get an official Frum Follies countdown to Election (a.k.a. Bye Bye Charlie) Day?”
There is no point in counting down to November. The race was over when Hynes lost the Democratic primary in September by 11%. It is about a half a century since a Democrat lost a county-wide race in Brooklyn. It is especially unlikely this year. The Republican ticket is headed by Mayoral candidate Joe Lhota who is down 50% in the polls.
The Hynes campaign is the dying gaseous gasp of a demented has-been who can’t admit that voters own the office of the District Attorney.
To dignify it with a count-down is giving this farce of a campaign more credit than it deserves.
Charles Joe Hynes is already politically dead. Suit yourself if you choose to dance on his political grave in November when his political death certificate is signed by the election officials.
I favor the Jewish approach to the dead: no embalming and rapid burial. But if Joe’s declining clique of cloying sycophants insists on an extended wake, so be it.
