From the Daily News:
In the 16th Senate District, incumbent Toby Stavisky is facing Republican-turned-Democrat Robert Schwartz.
Stavisky, who is running for her fifth full term, challenged the residency of Republican candidate Peter Koo, but lost in court. Now, Stavisky claims GOP operatives are orchestrating the campaign of her primary opponent, Robert Schwartz.
"Bob Schwartz used to be an enrolled Republican who is working hand-in-hand with the Republican Party this election year," said Stavisky spokesman Joe Reuben.
Queens GOP Executive Director Daniel Egers called Stavisky's charge "completely outlandish."
"That shows that the Stavisky campaign thinks that they're in trouble," he said.
