The Gateway (Filing Deadline Night Edition)
I love Mary Alice Miller, but a few points are in order about her piece puffing the nearly non-existent prospects of the State Senate Dems, which should be subtitled “The World According to Mike Gianaris’ Masturbation Fantasies.”:
2) “If you look at the democratic performance in his district, he represents a very democratic area that vote Democrat for every other elected official but him,”
I'm not sure Bob Turner, Nicole Malliotakis, Jimmy Oddo or David Storobin (who currently represents part of Golden’s new district) would agree.

The 6/29 resignation of Judge Sarah “Sally” Kraus left her seat open in the Brooklyn's brownstony 1st Municipal Court district, setting up a last minute rush for petitions; one candidate, Richard Montelione still had people on the street at 5:30 PM with petitions due tonight by midnight.
Opposing Montelione is Lara Genovesi (daughter of the late great Tony). Both candidates have sterling credentials, though my personal sentiments are with Lara (even if most of my local allies will be going the other way).
Ironically, I expect most of the votes will actually come out of Fort Greene, the only place in the district which seems to be facing a primary for a public office.
Incidentally, I am told that Montelione is not related to the owners of the great Carroll Gardens bakery, which will surely be a disappointment to election inspectors expecting the candidate to be dropping them a goody box on primary day.

The blog itself has a great name, but the piece is mostly clueless;
