Working Families Party Locks the Progressive Candidate out of NYC Mayor Debate

[Via On the Wilderside]

The Working Families Party sold the pro-war candidates of Clinton and Spitzer as

a vote for peace in 2006

Now this from the Village Voice:

Last night three candidates for Mayor of New York — Michael Bloomberg, councilmember Tony Avella, and comptroller Bill Thompson — attended the Working Families Party Mayoral Forum at the Hotel Trades Council on West 44th Street. (We should mention that Green Party candidate Reverend Billy wanted to be at the forum, but was excluded; “The Working Families Party have sent a cynical signal,” his office tells us. “New York is not a corporation. New York is a city. A city in a democracy. Let’s debate like it is.”)
