Frank Seddio's Cannoli Diplomacy

New Brooklyn Democratic Boss Frank Seddio, trying to prevent an inter-party revolt, reportedly came to a meeting of a Brooklyn reform club last week bearing cannolis: assuring members that the county courts were corruption-free, promising that transparency was coming, and hinting that patronage wasn't necessarily a bad thing.

About the same time, a Daily News editorial accused Seddio of failing to release promised information about the State Commission on Judicial Conduct's investigation into his run for a Surrogate's Court judgeship.

News blog True News wondered how Seddio, from a community so changed demographically that his Thomas Jefferson Democratic Club can no longer deliver the Democratic vote -- stays in power.

Maybe it's his way with a chicken cutlet [City and State.]

More from the New York Times.
