Anywhere, here comes Laurie Cumbo, smiling, waving, waiting for the great man to introduce her when he acknowledges the other electeds: JoAnn Simon was the one I recognized. I think it's safe to say that everyone else in the room was humbled by the Congressman's entrance and received their acknowledgement with little more than a nod of the head. Not Laurie. She stood and turned to the crowd and waved and smiled. It was unseemly, I have to say.
This the same Laurie Cumbo who picked a finger-wagging near-fight with Alicia Boyd, of Movement to Protect the People (MTOPP). at a CB9 meeting. The subject was rezoning. "I'll rezone this neighborhood myself if I have to!" she said, while we all stood there waiting for the Vaseline and her earrings to come off. Google it.
The other day I dropped in on LC's website to see a large photo of her Tweet earlier that morning apologizing to the Asian-American community "or any other cultural group" living in public housing. Like I said, performing well below expectations.
