From the Daily News:
Sean Bell's fiancée has the potential to turn a crowded Queens City Council race upside down - if she moves into the district.
Up to a dozen candidates are looking at jumping into the competition to fill the unexpired term of the late Councilman Thomas White Jr.
Nicole Paultre Bell, whose fiancé died in a hail of police bullets almost four years ago, brings name recognition and a heart-stopping personal story.
She declined to outline her political plans, though a source close to her confirmed she is considering a run.
She lives outside the district in Far Rockaway, and is still registered to vote at her mother's house in Suffolk County. Under state election law, however, Bell would have to move into the district by Election Day - and get 899 signatures from registered voters on her nominating petitions.
Bell has been a regular at the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network, and may be able to count on his support for a run as well.
