Peter Rivera Challenger Courts Bangladeshi Vote
NY Times reports today that the challenger to Assemblyman Peter Rivera, Luis Sepulveda, is aggressively courting the Bangladeshi vote. Apparently, there is a large contingent of people from Bangladesh in their district (could be as high as 2500), but no one had ever bothered to ask for their vote. What was also interesting is that the article noted that only about 5,100 people voted in primary in 2004 -- out of 53,000 registered Democrats!
