Andy King can run for his old seat, judge rules. But voters, Bronx Dems may not be so forgiving.


In 2020, former District 12 Councilmember Andy King seemed to be persona non grata in the city’s political circles. King, a Democrat, was the first sitting councilmember to be expelled from council by his colleagues — in a 48-2 vote — on the basis of four charges including harassment, discrimination and conflicts of interest.

However, a ruling from a New York State Supreme Court judge may grant King an opportunity to regain his seat in this year’s June 27 Democratic primary.
