The Tablet, Brooklyn District Attorney Charlie Hynes, since his primary loss to Ken Thompson in September, has lost the support of even his closest allies in Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish community.
Hynes' longtime friend Lew Fidler had switched his
endorsement to fellow Democrat Thompson even before Hynes decided to run again as a Republican in the November 5 General Election.
Both Satmar sects have now endorsed Thompson, and Hynes
continues to shed Orthodox Jewish leaders. On Monday, October 28, Agudath Israel leaders Leon
Goldenberg and Abe Biderman will host a
breakfast for Thompson.
Hynes is still making personal appeals to his former
allies. The Tablet quotes Hynes as saying, in response to the Satmar endorsement of Thompson, that there would be "no religious mandate" against "rethinking" that endorsement.
