Allegation: Anthony Weiner has been kept in that particular race for well past his sell-by date for the express purpose of derailing the electoral prospects of Christine Quinn. I have absolutely no proof of this, but she was leading earlier, and now she’s not. Heck, at this point current front-runner Bill de Blasio might not even need to worry about a runoff.
PS: They’re all pretty much worthless, of course. Assuming the Democratic candidate wins, his or her legacy will pretty much be to be the Horrible Mayor That Messed Things Up For NYC Until A Real New Yorker Came Along And Fixed Everything. It’s pretty much a predictable cycle at this point, alas.
