EXCLUSIVE: DFNYC to endorse Gifford Miller... ....NOT!
It has has been mentioned in other posts here and elsewhere that Gifford Miller tends to encourage his supporters (and often his employees) to join local clubs in an effort to stack them in his favor. This is hardly a new tactic, but usually it produces better results.
Because it appears that Giff just lost another one.
Though they have yet to offically release the numbers yet, it seems that the ballots cast by Democracy for New York City members show a solid majority for Anthony Weiner and another club packing failure for Gifford Miller. Weiner won the NDM ballot over Miller by more than two to one and I hear that the DFNYC numbers are looking much the same.
It seems that NYC progressives just don't like Giff no matter how much he tries reach out. Some rather informal polling also reveals that many DFNYC members were kind of insulted that Gifford would assume that he would be their choice. That kind of rejection has gotta hurt.
It also appears that DFNYC is also likely, though not certain, (candidates have to poll at least 55%) to endorse Scott Stringer for Manhattan borough pres.
UPDATE: It looks like the Politicker has noticed.
