Get back to your log cabin, Ellner, you sell-out
Democrats! The reason Howard Dean keeps coming to New York City for Freddy Ferrer is because local races are an important venue for promoting progressive ideas, building an effective network of Democratic electeds at all levels of government and battling George Bush's agenda at a level where we can win.
We thought that Brian Ellner understood that, by running his somewhat absurd ad asserting that he was running for Borough President to challenge George W.
Turns out Brian didn't get it. Either that, or he's just a fraud and a traitor. Because he's now working for Mayor Money...no doubt because he's getting his piece of the pie.
And in doing so, selling out the Democratic Party he pretended to be fighting for. And selling out the the gay community, which has not been served by a Mayor who has blocked gay marriage, blocked benefits for same sex partners, and just keeps buying approval across the city.
Congratulations, Mr. Ellner. Mayor Money is buying you a nice big Log Cabin. You win. We lose.
