"Looks like "off the record" whispers about Schumer aide Phil Goldfeder securing the party nod are increasing. Times Ledger appears to hint at this.
I do not like how Goldfeder is handling this. Maneuvering behind the scenes for the support of the party leadership, he refuses to publicly comment on his run. Why is Goldfeder silent? Why does the local press have to settle for anonymous sources to comment on Goldfeder's candidacy? Why the secrecy? Why is Gulluscio silent about his alleged support for Goldfeder? Doesn't the public deserve to know why he is leaning towards Goldfeder?
This is not how a democracy works, where a well-connected young political insider gets the nod, while longtime party activist and community figure Lew Simon is again hung out to dry by the party leadership."
