Pinstripe Politics May 27

It's a slow week on the Pinstripe Politics front, but there are a few good stories out there:

A Pinstriped Robe Possibility

If the courtroom fight between the Yankees and Richard Brodsky finds its way to the Supreme Court, the Yankees might have the upper-hand - Sonia Sotomayor, President Barack Obama's nominee for the soon-to-be vacant Supreme Court seat, is a lifelong Yankee fan.

Brodsky Considering Run for AG?

Speaking of Brodsky, the State Assemblyman from Westchester is rumored to be considering a run for Attorney General next year. If Brodsky runs and manages to separate himself from the field of candidates, it will be interesting to see if he continues his push against the Yankees.

Pride. Power. Prejudice.

Yesterday, Tom Vendikos, a bartender who had spent 27 seasons working at the old Yankee Stadium, filed a complaint against the Yankees with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Vendikos, 73, according to the New York Post, is alleging that age discrimination factored into the Yankees' decision to not rehire him for work at the new Stadium.
