Fossella's arrest leads to fund raising for Recchia too

via Liz Benjamin;

Meanwhile, Councilman Domenic Recchia, who has yet to formally declare his candidacy for Fossella's seat but has been raising money for a likely run, didn't want to comment on his likely opponent's troubles, but did tell DN City Hall Bureau Chief Kirsten Danis that he has seen an uptick in fundraising since the Staten Island congressman's arrest last week.

"In the last few days, it’s picked up,” said Recchia, who declined to say if he believed the surge was related to Fossella’s DWI bust. “I’m just doing a good job. People are listening and hearing our message.”
