Old Bull Pols Afraid: Attacking Menin Who Never Ran for Office Before, This Early
Longtime pols Brewer, Lappin and Jackson have been out played by the first time candidate
Will her insider consultant Arzt allow her to now go outside to survive and attack the same system that has been so good to him?
Fool ‘Dem’ twice(NYP) Pol swaps parties 3 times in 2 years. She registered as a Democrat in November 2001. Three months later, in February 2002, she became a member of the Independence Party. A month after that, in March, she joined the Republican Party.

And in July 2003, she boomeranged back to the always-accepting Democrats.After Menin — a 45-year-old lawyer and former restaurateur whose husband, Bruce, is a real-estate developer — joined the GOP in March 2002, she donated $11,000 to the campaign of then-Gov. George Pataki, a Republican. She was appointed to the powerful Lower Manhattan Development Corp. — headed by Pataki crony John Whitehead. “In 2002, she was working 24/7 with the [Republican Pataki] administration to help rebuild downtown,” George Arzt Menin spokeperson said. “She thought she could help her community by showing her support for the state administration’s rebuilding efforts.” Arzt did not address Menin’s one-month dalliance with the Independence Party — whose past leaders include the controversial Lenora Fulani, who once described Jews as “mass murderers of people of color.”
