Why is Yeger going against Deutsch?

Last week you reported that Kalman Yeger is rumored to run against Chaim Deutsch’s seat in the New York City Council (“Possible Deutsch challenger gets support from nearby incumbents,” by Julianne Cuba, online May 11). I have no ill comments about Mr. Yeger, who I have met once, and he certainly has a right to run. What is hard to comprehend is why he would run, except possibly to get his name around town for future political aspirations. Comments (2)

Cops: Pervert gropes girls in Sunset Park

Police are on the hunt for a pervert who felt up two young girls in Sunset Park on May 12. Comment
Bay Ridgites assembled in front of Rep. Dan Donovan’s Dyker Heights office on May 11 to demand the lawmaker support a special counsel and the creation of an independent commission of experts to investigate President Trump’s ties to Russia in the wake of the abrupt firing of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, who was leading the inquiry. But the congressman does not support the appointment of special counsel or the creation of any other groups to tag-team the investigation, because he has confidence in the existing probes, and is more interested with who will replace Comey at the bureau, said a rep for the legislator.
