When Jeffries’ June haul was broken down further, the percentage of donors from outside of the city was 60% — with Stanley Wasserman of Westchester County summing up the sentiment of the no-way-Barron bloc.
“I’ve known about his opponent, Charles Barron, for many, many years. Nasty, divisive — I believe he’s anti-Semitic. We don’t need a guy like that in Congress,” said Wasserman, who owns a real estate company and moved out of the city 20 years ago. He donated $1,800 to Jeffries in June.
“I looked into it, and I like Jeffries, a strong candidate, about unity, not divisiveness, and thought he’d be good for Congress.”
