Assemblywoman Rhoda Jacobs has been in office since the Carter years. Challenger Michele Adolphe has tried to dislodge her from her Flatbush seat three times. This time, Adolphe has a killer issue: Jacobs is already collecting her state pension!
Of course, it’s all legal, but all’s fair in love, war and political debates hosted by The Brooklyn Paper. In this barn-burner of a debate, Adolphe and Jacobs trade barbs to win your support. So click on the screen above and watch these two go at it, as Editor Gersh Kuntzman, Political Editor Tom Tracy and reporter Helen Klein — also known as The Best Damn Political Team Covering an Assembly race in Flatbush — ask the tough questions.
The primary is Sept. 14.
