Aaron Naparstek Unmasked

We know Aaron Naparstek (LF ’12) as the founder of Streetsblog, activist, community organizer and (alternative) transportation wonk. Now, following the arrest of Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver on corruption charges, Naparstek has revealed his secret identity as Fake Sheldon Silver, whose Twitter feed has called out corruption and malfeasance in the NY State Assembly for the past 5 years. Naparstek may have laid down his gavel, but we know he’s not done being a gadfly to self-interest and incompetence in government. The only question is where he’ll surface next.

Read “The Human Filibuster” in this week’s New Yorker, and dive into @shellysilver.
