From the Daily News:
BEHIND THE locked gates of North Shore Towers in Floral Park is more than some of the most exclusive real estate in eastern Queens.
There's also a potential gold mine of votes.
But some candidates running for the 26th Assembly seat, which includes North Shore Towers, said those gates are more open to some than others.
Candidates and residents said access to the complex is tightly controlled by Murray Lewinter, a former assemblyman and lobbyist who lives there and runs its political action committee. A candidate's forum in May included only two candidates: Ed Braunstein, who has the backing of the Queens Democratic Party, and Republican Vince Tabone. A video of that forum is still being replayed on the complex's in-house channel.
The three other Democrats on the Sept. 14 Primary ballot - Steve Behar, John Duane and Elio Forcina - were not invited.
North Shore Towers has a large population of older Jewish voters - an important voting bloc to elected officials. Mayor Bloomberg and others have often visited to court votes during campaign season.
