First AG from Queens?
This would make him not only the first African-American Attorney General, but also (I believe) the first AG from Queens! (can someone confirm that he’s actually the first? I’m not positive of it).
I know, I know. Like me, most of you probably also live in Queens and are wondering to yourself, what neighborhood? I mean, there are 2.2 million people in Queens. It’s not exactly a small area. Apparently, he’s from East Elmhurst, which is close to Jackson Heights and, of course, Elmhurst. And it’s only 1 1/2 neighborhoods away from me.
So, needless to say this is exciting. He’s eminately qualified and from Queens. Obama couldn’t make a better choice.
