Has the Working Family Party been ringing your doorbell here in Carroll Gardens lately?
Reader Jackie wants to know:
"My quiet evening with company was interrupted last Wednesday night at 9:00 pm by two young ladies who said they were with Working Families Party. I was not pleased to have unexpected visitors so late in the evening and told them I wasn't interested. Am curious now - does anyone know why they were doorbelling? Thanks!"
I am curious to know, myself. The Working Families Party is currently being investigated by the Federal Government for possibly having transgressed the campaign finance rules. Just last month, the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan issued subpoenas seeking campaign documents from the WFP. Newly elected Councilman Brad Lander and City Advocate, Bill De Blasio, who both contracted with W.F.P.'s for-profit arm, Data and Field Services, during this last election, have also been subpoenaed.
