Independence Party founder but now outcast Lenora Fulani has broken with just about everyone and endorsed controversial Senator Pedro Espada in the Democratic Primary next week.
Dr. Fulani says Espada is an independent fighter and that is why the political elite and establishment don't like him.
Of course being the only one to embrace Espada is a guarantee of a headline too.
I got to know Fulani and her crew pretty well during the overthrow of former Indy Chair Jack Essenberg in 1999 and my own Senate run in 2000.
I got along with them all and don't have any hard feelings although everyone else feels obliged to diss her......
She did introduce me to Al Sharpton so now everytime I see the Reverand I can reminisce about what a pompous and arrogant charlatan he is.....
But as for Lenora...Today's endorsement is another episode of that old show "My Favorite Marxist."
