New York Islanders: Kate Murray To Be Screened As Supreme Court Candidate

New York Islanders foe Kate Murray will be screened as a potential candidate for Supreme Court justice.

Kate Murray was probably the first politician to ever lose an election because of the efforts of a professional sports team’s fanbase.

The New York Islanders’ faithful took to social media to encourage one another to vote for Murray’s challenger, Madeline Singas, in last November’s general election for Nassau County District Attorney.

Murray infamously believed that the design of Charles Wang’s Lighthouse Project was “too grandiose” for the town. Diehards blamed her for the subsequent departure of the team to Brooklyn.

Well, Nassau’s Republican Party has sent Murray’s name to the county bar association to be screened as a potential candidate for Supreme Court justice. This after she was appointed to a prominent post at Nassau Community College that people claim she wasn’t qualified for.

Isles fans thought they were ending Murray’s political career, but instead it appears that they have boosted it: she will have obtained two high-paying positions if she’s given the thumbs up.

  • Teetering through the offseason is often a lonseome ordeal. That bodes well for arbitrary discussions. One of these dialogues surrounds the Isles play-by-play vacancy. Although no candidate has emerged as the winner, it’s been speculated that the team has a short list of potential Howie Rose replacements. We profiled some of the likely candidates.
  • Katie Ledecky, niece of Isles majority co-owner Jon Ledecky, is the most dominant female swimmer of her generation. Here’s a video of one very excited uncle.
