Mindy Meyer, the brash 22-year-old self-proclaimed “diva” running for State Senate in Brooklyn, told The Politicker she has nothing to do with a “Friendz of Mindy Meyer” “super PAC” that released a campaign web video and created a Facebook page on her behalf.
“That’s some scam because we never did that,” Ms. Meyer said.
The good people at Animal New York spent an afternoon walking the streets of the 21st State Senate district in Brooklyn with self-proclaimed “diva” candidate Mindy Meyer and captured incredible footage of the 22-year-old Orthodox Jewish woman’s decidedly unorthodox campaigning techniques. Ms. Meyer spends most of the video greeting constituents and basically berating them with her voice at full volume.
“I’m not your typical senator. Do I look like your typical senator?” Ms. Meyer asks one voter.
Ms. Meyer’s loud, in-your-face approach seems to connect with some of her targets, but not everyone in the video enjoys the show and some are eager to end their conversations with the candidate.
