State Senator John Sampson will have a second challenger if he seeks re-election this year.
Sean Henry, a former City Council candidate, army veteran and Department of Homeless Services administrator, announced today he will take on the embattled Brooklyn lawmaker, who has been indicted twice in connection with an alleged embezzlement scheme.
Scandal-scarred incumbents across the city will be fending off challengers this year and State Senator John Sampson is no exception.
Leon Miles, a former City Council candidate, has filed to run against Mr. Sampson for his eastern Brooklyn seat, according to state election records. Another former rival of Mr. Miles is rumored to be seeking a bid as well.
