Not Even Announced Yet And Democrat Candidate Already Getting Terrible Coverage

Vincent Gentile is widely expected to be chosen as the Democratic nominee for the NY-11 congressional seat. But this brutal NY1 story highlights the many (MANY) obstacles Gentile will likely face, including but not limited to:

– He lives in Brooklyn while the majority of the district is actually in Staten Island.

– He’s bad at his job as prosecutor, allowing 3 of the defendants to be acquitted in a sexual assault case at St. John’s University.

– His former chief of staff accused Gentile of sexual harassment in 2004.

– Mayor Bill De Blasio is a longtime friend and staunch supporter of his candidacy.
