And in a rare display of committee across campaigns, Mr. Yang’s co-campaign managers a list of questions for Mr. Adams Wednesday, which they noted was meant to add to questions raised by Mrs Wiley’s team the day before.
“Why would anyone vote for a candidate who can not even be honest about where he lives?” asked Sasha Ahuja and Chris Coffey, Mr. Yang’s campaign managers as they detailed a list of ethical concerns. “How are the traffic problems in Fort Lee? What are you hiding? ”
A day earlier, Mrs Wiley’s campaign manager, Maya Rupert, had asked: ‘WTF?!?! Does Eric Adams live in New Jersey? On Wednesday, Madia Coleman, a spokeswoman for Adams, fired back and sent out a series of questions about Mrs Wiley̵
Earlier Wednesday, a crowd of journalists gathered outside Adam’s Bedford-Stuyvesant townhouse, where a table was set with coffee and vegan pastries for journalists. (Mr. Adams is a vegan vocalist.)
At one point, Adams seemed unable to speak for more than a minute when he told a story he was shot at when he spoke out against racism in the police just days after his son, now 26, was born.
Mr. Adams said that was why he tried to be private about his home life.
“I realized the life I was living, my lawyer, would take his father from him,” he said. “Throughout my political career, none of my colleagues knew I had a son. I wanted to protect him from the reality of what I was doing. I became very private. ”
