Underreported: The Fight for the Independence Party

Thursday, September 03, 2009

We talk to City Hall magazine reporter Sal Gentile about how the New York Independence Party is in turmoil at the state and local level as various interest groups vie for control of it and its important ballot line.

We spoke to Mr. Gentile about State Senator Pedro Espada’s early political career on Backstory on July 23, 2009. You can listen to that interview here.
