Veteran Crime and Investigative Reporter Tom Tracy, right (file photo), is hot on the trails of a break-in at Simon's practice (updated: originally written as Simon's campaign headquarters on Hoyt Street, and that was incorrect). Yesterday, Tracy combed through the 84th precinct crime blotters and picked out a note involving a stolen purse in a downtown Brooklyn office. The purse belonged to a colleague and it was possibly stolen from inside the office of Jo Anne Simon. Does this mean Tom has to do considerably more Bob Woodword-like legwork on this story? In the words of former Attorney General John Mitchell: $#@#$%!!
