City Council Debates -- Now With More Racism!
Sasson also attacked John Choe, Liu's former chief of staff, for "anti-American views" and for calling the U.S. "an imperialist nation," while Choe accused contender Yen Chou of putting out flyers warning voters that if they didn't vote for her they'd inadvertently elect a "Jewish candidate" (presumably Sasson), which Chou denied.
Less racist was a debate for Comptoller candidate David Wepin's council seat, though YourNabe says contender Swaranjit Singh, a Sikh immigrant, has had his posters vandalized. "It's amazing how well we get along in Queens considering how diverse we are," said assemblyman Mark Weprin, the incumbent's brother. The third candidate, Bob Friedrich, has already been endorsed by one party -- the Republicans. "My campaign has been about transcending party labels," he says.
