So, who’s everyone voting for on Tuesday?
We rarely get political on Tracy’s New York Life, but with the mayoral primaries tomorrow, September 10, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for this 11-minute documentary about mayoral hopeful, Anthony Weiner. Peter Savodnik, a journalist whose work has been featured in the New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Bloomberg Businessweek, Wired, and other publications, sent us this ‘shortreal’ by his production company, Stateless Media.
I watched the clever mini-film several times, laughing harder after each viewing. No doubt this short is entertaining, but the film also shed some light on why Mr. Weiner is still running after his scandalous personal life has been plastered all over every New York newspaper and television station.
This film poses these questions, both of which are legitimate and often considered when supporting any candidate during an election.
“Should we allow a politician’s personal life to interfere with our opinion of his or her ability to govern a city, state, or country?
What if we didn’t know about the candidate’s sordid past, would we vote for him or her?
Watch the shortreal here: CHUTZPAH!
