It's not exactly fever pitch, but Real Reform Brooklyn's recent posts have sparked a press release from 33rd District City Council candidate Doug Biviano accusing Evan Thies of anonymous blog authorship. Here's the Biviano quote:
“Not only has Evan violated his stated pledge to run a positive campaign, he doesn’t have the backbone to stand up in the light of day and criticize his opponents openly and honestly,” said Biviano. “There’s nothing wrong with questioning your opponents’ records in a campaign – that’s what a campaign is about. But at least have the guts to take responsibility for your arguments.”
The Thies camp says its not them. The Biviano camp says it's not them either. Jo Anne Simon's camp is exasperated at the posts, and Steve Levin just keeps knocking on doors. Even Maureen Dowd is writing about cyberbullying this week.
We need to settle this. Here's a poll of potential Williamsburg/ Greenpoint/ Brooklyn Heights characters who might be Real Reform Brooklyn. Vote on your favorites in the comments section in no particular order:
1. Superstar music promoter Todd P
2. Former Greenline reporter Moses Gates
3. Marlow and Daughters' butcher Tom Mylan
4. Evan Thies Helper Elf Nick Rizzo
5. True Change NYC's Evan Burr (who I think is related to former VP Aaron Burr)
7. Mark Borino (I swear I've met this guy, but I can't say for sure)
8. Teresa Toro (just kidding)
9. "Prop" Phil DePaolo
10. Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clement (this is my vote).
