The ‘Magenta Yenta’ Strikes Again
There are no words for Mindy Meyer, New York State Senate candidate
Once you’ve been interviewed by The Scroll, you’ve got to really to break out your big guns to try and top the Tablet bump.
Mindy Meyer, the 22-year-old New York Senate candidate and law student, knows this fact all too well. This explains why Meyer between being called the “Magenta Yenta” and the “District Diva” has really been stepping up her game to enhance her candidacy. She also threw some chin music at the New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
