It's a Beautiful Day in the Negrohood!

"Ben Akselrod [who] is hoping to unseat Democratic Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz in the Sheepshead Bay district primary race...apologized after his campaign sent out a mailer [accidentally] using the word 'negrohood.'"

The actual text of the mailer is as follows:
"I am running for Assembly because I believe the number 1 job of that office is to keep the community safe. The current assemblyman has allowed crime to go up over 50% in our negrohood so far this year. I am fighting for video cameras throughout our community to protect our seniors who are the most vulnerable and cut down on anti-semitic attacks in our community. I will also make sure the mayor gives our community more police to patrol our streets."

In case you needed a reason to proofread and re-proofread your campaign mailers, here it is.
