Charles Barron, a former Black Panther out of East New York, has the the movers and shakers of this city aghast.
All those Wall Street lawyers, hedge fund operators and charter school advocates who have poured money into stopping Barron's bid for a Brooklyn congressional seat are worried.
A group of Democrats, from liberals like Manhattan Rep. Jerrold Nadler to neo-conservatives like Ed Koch, even blasted Barron this week as an "anti-Semite" and a "racist."
All of them have suddenly realized that Barron, the most outspoken member of the City Council for the past decade, could be heading to Washington.
