For Schorr: Pataki’s on board

Just got an e-mail from Westchester County District Attorney candidate Dan Schorr saying that he’s got the backing of former New York Gov. George Pataki in his bid to unseat Democratic DA Janet DiFiore.

In a letter that seems a wee bit heavy on capital letters, Pataki says that he knows Schorr is committed to “fighting for what’s right.”

“He understands that We Need to End Easy Plea Bargains that Don’t Properly Punish,” Pataki wrote (verbatim). “He knows that our Law Enforcement Community Deserves Better Support.”

Then Pataki urges the recipient of the letter to give money: “a contribution of $1,000, $500, $100, or $50 online.”
