It’s one thing for Ed Towns to have endorsed Hillary in the primary when his district was one of three in the state to go for Obama. After all, most NY state politicians did the same and Hill won by a landslide.
It’s quite another however for Towns to go as far as to use a picture of Barack Obama in his election eve mailer with the heading: “Ed Towns and Barack Obama, the team we need in Washington”.
Towns is a 13-term incumbent who failed to get the endorsement of CBID, the progressive political club par excellence in Brooklyn. To someone who does not follow politics, the flyer may even look like Towns received Barack’s endorsement. Meanwhile Towns’ insurgent opponent Kevin Powell endorsed Obama very early in the primary.
Shame on Ed Towns for having so little political backbone! I think our district deserves a change whether now or in the future.
(The congressional election as well as a bevy of local elections is today Sept. 9. And for those who don’t know. Ed Towns represents our district in Congress.)
