Why Sylvia Friedman Should Lose!
Two Words: Shelly Silver!
Sources say that at last night's Tilden Democratic Club endorsement meeting, (s)elected East Side Assemblywoman Sylvia Friedman was giddy with anticipation for her June 6th fundraiser in Albany, which will be hosted by ... Assembly Speaker Shelly Silver.
Apparently, Friedman - whose version of reform probably escapes Victor Hugo - told a little tale about how she "wasn't sure how she was going to get along with Shelly Silver when she went up to Albany," but then assured the crowd that she has found him to be an incredibly affable, "charming" man. Phewwwww!
