Here is a sampling of people who have endorsed Mark Green for Public Advocate of NYC with statements:
I used to support Mark Green, up until 2001. But today, I am tired of him. And, I am not the only one. Mr. Green is a good person who's done a lot of good things, but I don't think he should be running for AG or anything else, ever again.
A lot of people, including me, were big Green fans and fully supported his run for the Democratic nomination for Mayor in '01, but that was his last real chance. His career in elected politics ended on 12/31/01, although it was in its death throws the minute he approved the "kill it kill it kill it" ad.
So here's what the little shots would like to know:
Yesterday, embattled AG candidate Mark Green griped that party boss deals and threats cost him his support; and then went on to accuse the Cuomo machinery of threatening one East Side committee member with the loss of a valuable insurance contract.
Problem is, when pressed further to clarify his very public criminal accusation, the attorney-general-wannabe balked.
Apparently, all Mark could do was backtrack .... saying that it was a private contract, and a private conversation?!?!
Ahhh, we lovey the fresh smell of legal irony!!
Andrea Peyser has a column in the Post supposedly explaining how Mark Green’s arrogance doesn’t let you like him.
But if you deconstruct the column, it’s not clear what Green did wrong.
Here are parts of the column and my comments:
I was running [for mayor] after 9/11 in the face of $74 million" spent by Mike Bloomberg, a lean Green told me yesterday over eggs easy …
"If I told you I ran for election in Hawaii and the date was Dec. 7, 1941…, would you say the attack had nothing to do with the election?
