John Liu the newcomer to the citywide race for Comptroller has sent a shockwave through the city’s political clubhouses with his surprising 6 point lead in the early stages of this heated contest for one of the most coveted elected positions in New York State.
Many political pundits and junkies dismissed Liu’s chances at victory but are now singing a different song. The poll has veteran Melinda Katz running second and fellow Queensite David Weprin running last with a measly 5 percent of those surveyed.
The only real surprise is that 5 percent of those surveyed find David qualified! Although, Weprin is a nice man, he is completely inept. After all it was under his leadership as the powerful Council Finance Chair that the slush fund scandal was in full swing.
Stay tuned folks, this race is long from being over.
