The Gateway (LINCOLN: The Man, The Car, The Tunnel And The Resurrection Edition)
It’s all over Facebook, but I can’t resist the opportunity to try to be first on the blogs:
Lincoln Restler is up by 53 and is declaring victory.
Given that the previously uncounted votes had included 196 emergency ballots mostly cast by Hasidim on Heyward Street, this represents irrefutable evidence of Restler’s operational savvy, since his margin amongst absentee voters resembles those of Hasidim back in the day.
In reality, not all the Is & Ts of the Restler victory have been dotted and crossed; if my math is right (and I’ve been drinking the shabbos wine), we are in automatic hand-recount territory, and there are surely some disputed affidavit ballots, but barring a miracle, Restler has probably won.
Expect who is crying fraud to change rapidly.
Might I suggest that NKD use the moment to mount a write-in campaign to elect Diana Reyna (or someone else) to Lopez's Assembly seat in November?
Forget the Restler/Olechowski war---the real fight is between Yossi Gestetner and Orthodox Pundit. http://orthodoxpundit.blogspot.com/#!/2012/09/yossi-can-we-have-ed-number.html
The other day, I recommended Brooklyn reformers "pull an Aiken" and declare victory and go home.

I don't know why anyone takes offense to Dan Halloran holding a fundraiser on Yom Kippur.
Exiled to Florida, where he serves as Palm Beach County's Democratic Chair, former Manhattan Assemblyman Mark Alan Siegel manages to insert a body organ (in this case, his foot) into someplace wet (in this case, his mouth).Last time he tried that, he got into trouble and went into exile. This time, the same result seems imminent.
