A Rangel-Free Flyer for Schneiderman

Wednesday, September 08, 2010 - 10:21 AM

Embattled Rep. Charlie Rangel is not listed among the supporters on Eric Schneiderman's flier.

Here's the latest example of Democratic attorney general candidate Eric Schneiderman putting some distance between himself and Rep. Charlie Rangel, a high-profile supporter who has come under fire for accusations of ethical wrong-doing.

Rangel is not listed on this campaign flyer from Schneiderman.

Schneiderman has juggled his association with Rangel deftly. Rangel had been among the supporters at Schneiderman's kick-off event earlier this year.

And Schneiderman was the only attorney general candidate to personally attend Rangel's birthday party fund-raiser, which proved to be a tricky task for candidates promising to clean up Albany's image as a "swamp or corruption."

(Disclosure note: Schneiderman’s father, Irwin Scheniderman, who has been a significant donor to his son’s campaign, is a long-time member of the WNYC Board of Trustees and has been a generous donor to the station over the years.)
