aaaaaaaand I...........eeeeeI...... will always love youuuuuuuuuu...rrr donations
Reverend Billy Thompson had a big weekend, bringing in $5.6 million in private funds, receiving the counter-endorsement of several Central Brooklyn leaders, got support from the Transport Workers Union on the anniversary of the term limits vote, and he even opened a new office in Williamsburg on Lorimer and Maujer Street. It was a circus. I asked a supporter why open an office in Williamsburg. The campaign website after all lists the Bushwick Democratic Club as a satellite office for the mayoral candidate.
"It was Gerry Esposito's old campaign office. It is what it is," he said.
I neeeeed you you you... I neeed you you you, in the morning... you you you.... when my soul's on fiiiiiiiiiiiire!
Unfortunately, like Whitney Houston, the Thompson campaign has uphill battle. He's down 16 points in the latest Quinnipiac poll (though only 9 among likely voters in another poll), Bloomberg is about to break his own campaign spending record, and President Obama is ignoring him for some reason. Still, things could change come next week's debate. Whitney afterall released a new album and went on Oprah to dish about everything else. They didn't talk about Billy Thompson.
