Council candidate pledges to tack toward sanity

To be clear, Democratic City Council candidate Thomas Lopez-Pierre is a racist and a homophobe who says crazy things to get attention and doesn't have a real chance of getting into office.

But apparently he has a plan.

I ran into him just now at a labor forum in Midtown, and told him his comments and emails were offensive. 

He responded by asking me what my ethnicity was and whether I was a victim of gentrification.

He also said that after he gets elected, he plans to "pivot."

So apparently the slurs are just for show.
