From the NY Post:
[Congressional candidate Bob] Turner blasted [Marty] Markowitz for giving Turner's Democratic opponent -- Queens Assemblyman David Weprin -- the chance to address thousands of spectators before the Aretha Franklin concert in Coney Island last night and denying Turner equal time.
"This is 100 percent electioneering with the taxpayer money," fumed Turner spokesman Bill O'Reilly.
Markowitz admitted that he extended a stage invitation to Weprin -- whose Assembly seat does not cover any part of Brooklyn -- because the assemblyman's a congressional candidate.
But Markowitz said last night he's willing to allow Turner to address spectators at one of the two remaining summer concerts, either next Thursday or Aug. 18.
