From the Queens Campaigner:
Democratic District Leader and City Council candidate James Wu said one of his petition volunteers was attacked and had a clipboard with personal information from hundreds of voters stolen Sunday.
Wu said a 19 year-old volunteer with his campaign was collecting signatures for the district leader’s bid to replace Councilman John Liu (D-Flushing) Sunday, when a man ran up behind him, knocked him to the ground and stole his clipboard containing information on between 200 and 300 Democratic voters in the area.
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” Wu said. “And I’ve only been doing this 20 years, so what do I know?”
The incident occurred near the corner of 184th Street and Utopia Parkway at approximately 7:30 p.m. According to Wu, police were investigating the case as a grand larceny.
