Attn. NYC Voters: Sylvia Friedman must go down!

Last week League of Humane Voters-NYC (LOHV-NYC) exposed that Assemblywoman Sylvia Friedman accepted a campaign contribution of $350 from Feld Entertainment, owners of Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus. Today LOHV-NYC uncovered that she also accepted funds from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer and has volunteers from the company working in her office.

If you live in the Lower East Side area please make sure you get out to the primary elections tomorrow and vote for humane candidate Brian Kavanagh. LOHV-NYC also needs lots of volunteers to help rock the humane vote. Call them at (212) 889-0303 to sign up or to get more details on this story.

Update 9/15: Brian Kavanagh won by 374 votes! In his victory speech, those first thanked were the folks at LOHV-NYC. The group mailed out hundred of postcards, made thousands of phone calls, and made avialable two dozen volunteers in support of the humane candidate. Good work guys!

    The voting area includes not just the Lower East Side but Gramercy and Murray Hill. I’ve done lots of phonebanking for Brian Kavanagh and will be leafletting tomorrow at Village East Towers over on Avenue C.

    Sylvia has more endorsements, but Brian has the New York Times and Mario Cuomo endorsing him.

    I’ve read all different catty stuff on blogs like The Politicker, and my head is spinning from all the back-talk. I hate politics.

    Update (as of September 14): Sylvia Friedman refuses to concede Tuesday’s election, claiming, ?We have not conceded,? she told The Villager late Tuesday night. ?I mean, what is it ? 300 votes apart, out of 11,000, without the absentee ballots counted, the affidavits and everything else? We have not conceded. And if he won, it was under false pretenses. It was a lot of ugly stuff. We?ll be out there. We?ll look at the [voting] machines. We?ll look at the affidavits.?

    False pretenses…uh, yeah. Ugly stuff? Like your arm in your campaign leaflet? (It was a very unfortunate photo of her high-fiving a kid and she was wearing a sleeveless dress. Kavanagh had nothing to do with that, and it may have cost her votes.)
