Brodsky quits attorney general race to donate kidney to daughter
Assemblyman Richard Brodsky (D-Elmsford) announced Thursday that he is ending his campaign for state attorney general in order to donate a kidney to his ailing daughter.
Brodsky says he was informed Monday by his daughter?s doctor that she would require a transplant within 30-90 days. His 14-year-old daughter, Willie, suffers from an autoimmune disease. Her mother donated a kidney to her 11 years ago. Brodsky says he will return to work in Albany before going in for the operation at the Westchester Medical Center in the next few months.
Brodsky?s decision still leaves five other Democrat hopefuls in the bid for attorney general, including Andrew Cuomo and Mark Green. Former Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro is the only Republican seeking the office.
