Gold vs. Goldstein: Absolutely Ridiculous

"The Democratic primary for Brooklyn surrogate heated up Monday when Civil Court Judge Lila Gold sued to oust two of her opponents, claiming they had collusive campaigns. Judge Gold, backed by Assemblyman Anthony J. Genovesi, charged Supreme Court Justice Michael H. Feinberg sponsored Civil Court Judge Fern J. Goldstein's candidacy to create voter confusion by having two female Jewish candidates in the race, both with the word "Gold" in their names.
