How many different versions of this story will we hear?
The Kim campaign claimed their volunteers were attacked by football-throwing teens a couple of weeks ago. The version of the story keeps changing, however.
First, about a dozen teens yelled, "Kevin Kim sucks!" and "Asian men out!" as they tossed fliers backing Dan Halloran for the 19th District seat.
Then a group of young men sitting on a stoop yelled anti-Asian comments at them. “They yelled out some pretty awful ethnic slurs and one of them threw a football at our team.”
I'd like to see the stoop that a dozen teens could sit on. Seems like "Kevin Kim sucks" and "Asian men out" turned into "awful ethnic slurs" which would be more like one of these.
The latest version says The alleged attack, to which there were no witnesses, claimed the teens were carrying pro-Halloran signs.
So the stoop-sitting Asian-bashing teens just happened to be carrying Halloran signs?
Look guys, if you're going to make up a story, at least stick to one plausible version of it. As an astute commenter on the Queens Campaigner stated:
"As to the Fracas on the streets, they were in an area that is all camered up, and the deli’s are located at 19th avenue and Clintonville Street, 5 blocks from the parkway, and 4 blocks from Francis Lewis Blvd, 17th Avenue and Francis Lewis Blvd, 5 blocks from the parkway, and where just last week that tragic accident occurred... apparently geography is not the Kim’s Campaign strong suit."
Actually, the Crapper figured out that this info could easily have been found by using Google Maps Street View.
