Anthony Weiner asked the Board of Elections to intervene today–so he could ensure the press got a good photo of him casting his ballot with his son on Election Day.
The former Congressman had been scheduled to vote at 9:30 a.m. at a Baruch College building not for from his Park Avenue South apartment. Instead, frantic staffers rushed in and out of the building, conferring with poll workers and making calls. There had been a “snafu,” with the Board of Elections, said Mr. Weiner’s spokeswoman, Barbara Morgan, who paced up and down the sidewalk outside of the building, tracked by two film-makers.
Guyanese, Trinidadian, and Jamaican cricket enthusiasts received a surprise today: Anthony Weiner.
The former Congressman, who is limping along in the polls, took his mayoral campaign to members of Queens’s West Indian community, where he said he hopes to scrounge up votes just a couple of days before Tuesday’s Democratic primary.
His pitch, he explained, was the same to the Guyanese community as to all voters.
