What a long strange primary trip it was for Steve Levin in NYC Council District 33. Brooklyn Heights resident/challenger/ fellow Brown alum/professional poker player Stephen Pierson waged a full frontal assault on the incumbent that was hyperfocused on Levin’s relationship with his former boss/disgraced Assemblyman/defeated City Council candidate Vito Lopez. But as anyone who has had the misfortune of working for a schmuck knows, that doesn’t make you one too – and the electorate agreed handing Levin a victory on Tuesday night.
