Williamsburg- Mayor Michael Bloomberg (Quarterback) was taken as the overall #1 draft pick Saturday in the first annual New York Fantasy Politics Draft by reporter Joe Walker, who won the rights to the first pick in the draft moments earlier.
It was a first round devoid of surprises, with several executives, including both Senators, rumored gubernatorial candidates, and the four highest city officers selected early.
Bloomberg was followed by second overall pick City Comptroller John Liu (QB), Governor David Paterson (QB), Public Advocate Bill De Blasio (QB), Attorney General Andrew Cuomo (QB), Speaker Shelly Silver (QB), Speaker Christine Quinn (LT), Senator Chuck Schumer (QB), Former Senate President Joe Bruno (QB), and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (QB) who filled out the first round.
Check back Monday for the complete 10-round fantasy politics draft and draft analysis.
