The Brooklyn Paper

In “Bloomy cheers Connor’s foe” (Aug. 16), we reported that state Sen. Marty Connor, one of the state’s top election lawyers, worked “against” Democratic gubernatorial candidate Carl McCall in 2002. Connor was a lawyer for third-party candidate Thomas Golisano, but, he told The Brooklyn Paper, he did so with the encouragement of the McCall campaign, which hoped a Golisano run would weaken incumbent Gov. Pataki. In addition, Connor did support Mayor Bloomberg’s congestion pricing plan, but the legislature failed to take up the measure earlier this year.
