What's good for Maistelman

Wait a minute. If Michael Maistelman's stupid -- yet apparently legal -- Election Board antics are worthy of front-page coverage, why is coverage Mark Green's latest set of legally questionable (very, very questionable) campaign donations relegated to the back pages?

The Maistelman story ran atop page 1 with a huge jump. The Green story ran on p. 7, on the bottom of the page. It was short and packaged with the jump from the Maistelman story in a way that says, "minor, unimportant story here."

Double standard? Yes.
