Reading down at the NY Daily News on the "Brawl For The Hall" between John Liu and David Yassky, here's Hank Sheinkopf on John Liu:

"He spent a lot of time with black voters. He tried to make himself a black candidate and was quite successful," said Hank Sheinkopf, a consultant who worked for fourth-place finisher David Weprin in the race for controller.
To me it's just plain idiocy that an Asian American candidate can't just appeal to other races and ethnicities, but rather if they make inroads to other communities, are sometimes perceived as trying to be someone else.
