Buffalo News Anchor Upset at What Niagara Falls Mayor Did
The Western New York political scene took center stage on Tuesday.
The Niagara Falls primaries took place and incumbent Niagara Falls Mayor, Robert Restaino won the Democratic primary race on late Tuesday night.
Restaino defeated two challengers: Glenn Choolokian and Demetrius Nix. Choolokian came relatively close, earning over 34 percent of the vote. Restaino has over 42 percent of the vote.
However, some people are now talking about what Restaino did on Tuesday night, during an interview with WGRZ.
Restaino seemed to not enjoy a question towards the end of the interview and grabbed the camera of photojournalist Ben Read.
WGRZ news anchor Scott Levin took exception to what the Mayor did and says that he "has a real problem with this." Levin wants an apology from Mayor Restaino.
It appears that Restaino put his hands on the lens of the camera, ever slightly grabbing it, before walking away. It's uncertain why Restaino didn't just walk away if he wanted to end the interview, instead of attempting to tough the camera lens. There's really no reason for it, even if he is upset what what transpired during the interview.
Restaino will now run for Mayor of Niagara Falls in November's main election against Republican Carl Cain.
