NY - Councilman Greenfield Calls Hebrew Ad Depicting Hynes As Kapara Chicken "Appalling"

Brooklyn, NY - An online ad depicting Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes as a chicken, accompanied by a subheading written in Hebrew saying, “It’s time to beat kaporos,” has ruffled the feathers of New York City Councilman David Greenfield.
The NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Reports that the ad, depicting Hynes as a chicken headed for slaughter before Yom Kippur, was called “appalling” by Greenfield, who said it “implies” Hynes’ opponent Ken Thompson “wants to see Joe Hynes killed in the ritual tradition of slaughtering chickens.”

A Thompson spokesman, James Freedland, denied knowledge of the ad, saying it was not “sanctioned” by Thompson, or generated by his staff.
