Maybe it’s an H1N1 concern

tjndc5-5rigbxw7i6c7porwjn1_layoutThis is from my Journal News colleague Gerald McKinstry, who witnessed this exchange in the parking lot of News12 in Yonkers:

Apparently after Tuesday night’s debate at News12, Republican Dan Schorr approached his opponent, Janet DiFiore, and offered to shake her hand. DiFiore, the incumbent district attorney, passed on that, as did her husband, who told Schorr, “Your 15 minutes are up.”

Schorr maintains that DiFiore had refused to shake his hand throughout the campaign.
