Real Housewives Of The NY Senate
New York City's tabloids continue to be fascinated with the GOP state Senate candidacy of Mindy "Magenta Yenta" Meyer, 22, who is the first Orthodox Jewish female to run for the office. Meyer's first fundraiser, which was covered by Bravo, involved her bringing a live elephant to the venue. Last month I wrote:
Meyer has been endorsed by the state GOP and the virulently anti-gay Conservative Party, which opposed and has since sued to overturn marriage equality. NOM has backed other Orthodox Jews for the New York Senate, but has not yet mentioned Meyer. Meyer ran unopposed in the GOP primary and faces volatile five-term Democrat Sen. Kevin "Anger Management" Parker, who has been twice arrested for slugging a meter maid and for attacking a photographer.Unshockingly, Meyer tells the New York Post that if she loses the election, she'd be thrilled to get a reality show of her own. Should she actually win, Meyer would scarcely stand out in a legislative body that has seen so many of its members sent to prison just in the last few months.
