DA Candidate in New York Failed Bar Multiple Times

From The Journal News:  "Tony Castro, the Democratic candidate for Westchester County district attorney, struggled to pass the bar exam in both Massachusetts and New York, taking and failing the test multiple times in each state before he finally passed.

Castro, who has pledged to restore "honesty and integrity" to the county prosecutor's office, also was forced from his job as an assistant district attorney in the Bronx for more than a year in the mid-1980s because he could not pass the exam — a fact that is not included in the resume he posted on his campaign Web site.

In a phone interview yesterday, Castro said his struggles to pass the bar exam "had nothing to do" with his qualifications to serve as district attorney. He also insisted the information on his campaign Web site is accurate."   Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
