You never know what kind of email you’ll get during an election cycle. Take, for example, this email from Clyde Vanel, who is looking for assistance in obtaining signatures to get on the ballot to run against State Sen. Malcolm Smith in the 14th State Senate District Primary:
“Baby Vanel is praying for your assistance. I need your help collecting petition signatures in order to qualify as a candidate for NYS Senate,” the email read. It was accompanied by the photo of “Baby Vanel” seen here.
While the incumbent is on trial this week, Vanel has some tough competition, as former Councilman Leroy Comrie has thrown his hat in the ring, along with Munir Avery and Bernadette Semple.
Here at QConf, we’re hoping that the other candidates pushing for a spot in the September primary also release their baby pictures.
To the cutest baby go the spoils!
