Thompson may actually have a shot at becoming the second African-American mayor in New York City history.
As you read this you might be thinking what I was thinking. Who is Bill Thompson?
Bill Thompson was the 42nd Comptroller of New York City. He was sworn in January of 2002, and was re-elected to serve a second term in January of 2006. In 2009 Thompson left office to run for mayor of NYC, and although he was unsuccessful, it was an extremely close race with Thompson getting 46% of the vote, and Mayor Bloomberg getting 51% to squeeze out a victory.
If I may be blunt, and I will. Bill de Blasio is not really a factor in this race. Thompson may win because he is the lesser of "3 evils". Although New York is a Blue state, there is still a certain element who will have to choose between a Black man, a lesbian, and an arrogant pervert if he insists on embarrassing himself by staying in this race. Decisions! Decisions!
