Noted...

...along the Special Election campaign trail.

Commenters on the 27East report on last Thursday's Candidates' Debate in Hampton Bays, seemed to focus on the hot button issue of illegal immigration.

While some insisted that it was not a suitable subject for local debate... try selling that one in Southampton Village!... others noted that while Republican candidate Bill Hughes artic­ulated his position quite clearly, Democratic candidate Bridget Fleming equivocated.

(Understandable given the debate's venue.)

But the real reason is readily apparent, thanks to the Town Dems' use of the Facebook social network.

(Ah, there, Elyse Richman... ya shoulda warned them!)

Found at Southampton Town Democratic Committee:

"NYCLU Rally for Immigrant Rights
Let Senator Schumer Hear Your Voice
Time:10:30AM Thursday, February 11th"

Given the same direct questioning at this evening's debate at the David W. Crohan Community Center in Flanders, would Ms. Fleming be more forthright?
