Brooklyn County Leader Fumes at Health Question

After leaving last night's meeting of the Brooklyn Democratic County Organization, Assemblyman Dov Hikind told reporters that the County Leader, Vito Lopez's health was declining.

Before the meeting concluded, Brooklyn Paper had reported that Lopez is telling allies he has cancer.

When Lopez emerged from the meeting, he took a few questions. When asked about his health, Lopez asked a reporter "who are you" and "are you well?"

"That is like an outrageous request," Lopez fumes.

Later, he's heard referring to this New York Post reporter, as "a real sick lady."
