Public Advocate Bill de Blasio has won the endorsement of the Tenants Political Action Committee in the city's Democratic primary. The PAC says it was impressed by Sal Albanese, Bill Thompson, John Liu and Christine Quinn but decided to go with De Blasio.

Bill de Blasio gets our endorsement for his commitment (in his words) to “re-set the agenda” for a genuine progressive city government, to “de-program the Bloomberg years”; for his opposition to privatization and to government as a handmaiden to private profit takers; for his support for mandatory inclusionary zoning requiring developers to include affordable apartments in all new buildings; and for addressing the economic inequality that is driving more New Yorkers into hardship and poverty.

Anthony Weiner was not among the candidates interviewed by the PAC because he did not submit a questionaire. However, the PAC notes:

in any case would not consider him for an endorsement because of his 1994 vote in the City Council to phase out rent protection laws.

A major part of the PAC's endorsements was based on whether candidates took donations from the "Jobs For New York PAC," which Tenants PAC calls a "real estate front group."

Anthony Weiner said more dirt about his Internet sex life would come out during his mayoral campaign and boy was he right. This week the revelation that Weiner had the sort of online sexual relationships with women that led to his resignation even after he resigned from office forced the Weiner campaign into damage control. The revelations had a major impact in public opinion according to a Marist Pollthat showed his support dropping to 16 percent with his negatives at an all-time-high. Council Speaker Christine Quinn now leads the pack with 25 percent with Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and Bill Thompson at 14 percent. Weiner admitted on Thursday to having three explicit online relationships with women even after he resigned his seat in Congress. Weiner has said he will continue with his campaign.

Forgotten Coney Island

Only a few blocks down from the amusement district, where the sounds of the frolicking beachgoers and carnival games have come back with renewed vigor after the seashore neighborhood's near-cataclysmic meeting with Hurricane Sandy, there is a different Coney Island that most tourists and beach goers don’t see.

This is the Coney Island that continues to struggle to return to normalcy nearly a year after Hurricane Sandy came ashore. The Coney Island where parks and playgrounds remain fenced off because of sinkholes or other damage done by last year’s storm.

“They say Coney Island is open for business. Sure, the entertainment district is, but no one talks about the parts of Coney Island where people actually live. They don’t talk about the neighborhoods,” said Ed Cosme, a resident who formed The People’s Coalition of Coney Island to raise awareness about the problems in the parts of the neighborhood that don’t normally draw tourists and bathers.

Assemblyman Micha Kellner is the latest Albany legislator to have sexual harassment charges made public. The New York Times reported today that Kellner sent a series of flirtatious messages to a junior female staffer over an Internet game of Scrabble.

Kellner told the woman during a late-night exchange that he hired her because she was "cute." "I wouldn't mind falling asleep with you but not remotely," he told his employee. Kellner is currently running for City Council in the 5th district.

The Times' reporting has resulted in the resignation of Assembly Lawyer Bill Collins, who failed to pass on the charges to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

Kellner apologized for the behavior and said that it happened before he was married.

Over four years ago, for a few weeks while I was still single, I exchanged instant messages with a female member of my staff that were flirtatious. It was inappropriate. I was wrong and it was stupid. When I was told that my staffer felt the messages were unprofessional, I immediately stopped and regretted placing her in that position. I was sorry then and I am sorry now.

Sonia Ossorio, president of the National Organization For Women NYC, has responded to today's revelations of another sexting incident involving mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner by calling him "a distraction" and urging him to exit the race. NOW joins a chorus of voices calling for Weiner to withdraw. Here is Ossorio's statement:

As if we didn't already have enough evidence of Anthony Weiner's utter lack of judgment, impulse control and honesty, these latest revelations show the degree to which his candidacy distracts us from the important business of choosing the next leader of New York City. He is clearly and compellingly unfit for public office and the sooner comes to this realization, the better for the people of New York.
