Nice Guys Don't Always Run Last

Guess who ended up as David Patterson's Campaign Manager for his Lt. Governor run (coronation)?       

YES, you guessed it:  LUTHER SMITH.                                                         The former chief-of -staff to C.Viriginia Fields ( ex-Manhattan Beep ) was last seen working on Freddie Ferrer's Mayoral campaign, as a Special-Assistant to the candidate himself (post-primary). This likeable, hard-working and competent guy, was rumored to have hooked up with Bill Lynch's consulting firm.  From where we stand at this  moment in time, it looks like a 'piece of cake " for Luther. Score one for the nice-guys.
