18 year old Abraham Tischler running for a NY Borough Seat has fools worried…David Greenburg, YOU ARE SORRY!
March 2, 2010
look at this kid who is big pimping…got older dudes scared and shook. First, that calls for some Mobb Deep.
David Greenburg, I shouted you out, since you are the one attempting to challenge his signatures in court.
A Brooklyn teen is hoping to become the City Council’s youngest member ever – but the adults are fighting tooth and nail to keep him off the ballot.
His platform is teen friendly – he wants to save free student MetroCards; but he also is vowing to fight to keep city firehouses open and crack down on bogus parking tickets.
The Touro College sophomore says his inexperience is actually a plus. So far, he has spent just $560 – for posters and flyers.
“I owe no one favors,” he said.
Still, at least one of the adults running against him in the 44th Council District worried enough to take him to court.
Tischler insists there is nothing wrong with his petitions.
After all, his mom and dad helped him gather the 1,415 signatures he eventually submitted – nearly double the required 765. Anything that looked fishy, Tischler said, was tossed.
“They wouldn’t knock me off if they didn’t think I was a real challenge,” Tischler said. “Let the people decide who they want to be their councilman.”
Greenfield, a former chief of staff for Assemblyman Dov Hikind, has Mayor Bloomberg‘s backing and is one of the frontrunners. So is longtime community board lead Joe Lazar, who has Public Advocate Bill de Blasio‘s backing. But it’s Greenfield, who has raised $131,000 for the race, who is pressing a lawsuit.
“We don’t know anything about the guy,” said his spokesman, Eric Kuo. The campaign is also concerned, he said, because Tischler isn’t participating in the city campaign financing system.
“He could drop half a million dollars of family money in the campaign tomorrow,” Kuo said.
Ridiculous, said the teen’s dad, who has capped spending for his son’s campaign at $1,000.
“David Greenfield, with all his money, with all his power, is trying to get an 18-year-old kid off the ballot because he’s scared,” said Harold Tischler, 46, a construction contractor.
“Give him a shot.”
The statements that they are making are just showing how yellow they are. First, if your game is tight, you don’t have to worry about someone else. You have the backing of the Freaking Mayor! Second, the dude is a college student. Just pay to have some pictures at a party posted with him hitting the bong, and you are all good. But, that you take it to court, says that you couldn’t handle it yourself.
David Greenburg, you win Hater of the Week! due to the fact that you are scared of an 18 year old in politics, when you should be a veteran of political races…
