Shortly before Michael Blake’s planned announcement kicking off his campaign for State Assembly, the Daily News published a story citing a potential residency problem for the Obama acolyte. The News claimed Blake doesn’t meet state election law residency requirements to run in the 79th Assembly District.
Last Saturday (April 19), I videotaped Blake's Assembly kick-off announcement at PS 463, The Urban Scholars Community School. In what I believe is an indication of the rough road ahead for Michael Blake, his speech was interrupted when a computer mishap generated an audible, “Access Denied.”
Blake laughed it off saying, “That was the old 79th.”
One political insider quipped that "God is forgiving, the election law ain't."
