Brooklyn Heights resident/mayoral candidate/ bicycle outlaw Joe Lhota has unleashed a new very dark campaign ad. The spot warns that a DiBlasio administration would reduce the number of cops on the street and return New York City to the bad old days of the 1970s.
Probably more like this 70s:
But while Lhota, who is 50 points behind in current polls, has the right throw an elbow at this opponent, the use of footage of the recent motorcycle gang attack on a father and his family on the West Side seems an odd choice. Weren’t those Ray Kelly’s undercover cops seemingly joining in on the attack? Isn’t the current mayor a Republican?
On the flip side, remember the last few Democratic mayors?
What do you think?
