Congressman Hinchey to retire; future of district uncertain

Congressman Maurice Hinchey will retire at the end of the year.

On the other side of the equation, there is speculation that the Ninth District in Brooklyn and Queens will also be divided. That was a district won in a special election last year by Republican Bob Turner. The special election was the result of the resignation of Anthony Wiener who was entangled in a scandal in which he sent sexually explicit pictures and messages to women via Twitter and the Internet.
