“You know that line about, ‘You do not want to get between Chuck Schumer and a TV camera?’ I am living proof that is not true.”
— Sen. Bill Nelson
The first years after the decennial redistricting can be confusing for everyone. Case in point? Consider the situation of our CQ Roll Call colleague Frank Oliveri, a Bronx, N.Y., native who was talking Tuesday with Rep. Charles B. Rangel, D-N.Y., about the weekend’s deadly Metro North train crash.
Rangel told Oliveri he was surprised that the train lacked automatic breaks. The two proceeded to the House subway and were joined by another New York Democrat, Rep. Jerrold Nadler. Rangel informed Nadler, as he had told Oliveri moments before, that the crash happened in Rangel’s district.
“Serrano told me it was in his district,” Nadler said, referring to another New York Democrat, Rep. José E. Serrano.
“Redistricting,” Nadler said.
“Redistricting,” Rangel said.
And the train went down the line.
