Spitzer Collects Endorsements And Heckles
Here’s how to shut down a ritzy Democratic Party fund-raiser: just ask some simple questions about 9/11.
66% of the electorate in 2004 asked Attorney General Spitzer for an independent investigation into 9/11. Spitzer refused. So, yesterday, I interrupted his speech and asked him why. The really surprising turn of events is that none the upper West Side liberals who came up to talk to me afterwards censured me for the disruption, instead they gave me pointers on how to do it better next time. Many stayed on to talk about 9/11, and the untold story there. Meanwhile, Spitzer and the career politicians cancelled their planned Q&A session, and slunked off stage. No one got around to asking for money at this “fund-raiser.” Meanwhile, at the back of the room, five mainstream newspaper reporters and a TV camera talked to me about my Senate race, my book, 9/11, and Vox Pop. Here’s the first media hit, below. Remember: The Hicks For Senate Campaign, Green Party people, and 9/11 Truth people and other groups are holding a big protest outside Spitzer’s office on 3/22, Wed., 12-2 PM. It’s lunchtime at Ground Zero/Wall Street. The Cover-Up is OVER!
HEADLINE: Spitzer Collects Endorsements And Heckles
By DAVID LOMBINO – Staff Reporter of the Sun
The state attorney general, Eliot Spitzer, picked up several endorsements from key Manhattan Democrats yesterday in his race for governor even as he fended off an angry verbal attack by a heckler at an Upper West Side synagogue.
Mr. Spitzer, the front-runner for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, accepted endorsements from Reps. Carolyn Maloney and Jerrold Nadler, both Democrats of Manhattan, as well as the president of Manhattan, Scott Stringer.
The heckler, Sander Hicks, a Green Party candidate for Senate, interrupted Mr. Spitzer’s remarks for several minutes, demanding to know why the attorney general has not opened an independent investigation into the events of September 11, 2001.
Mr. Hicks, a Brooklyn coffee shop owner and former punk rocker, has published a book that challenges the official interpretation of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and argues that the Bush administration had considerable foreknowledge of the events.
Over the pleas of several audience members, Mr. Hicks declared his right to freedom of speech and said he would not leave until Mr. Spitzer answered.
Mr. Spitzer asked Mr. Hicks to respect the rights of the audience members, and asked him to call his office today.
