Former aide with Asperger’s claims he was tormented by Brooklyn Councilman Gentile

Quote:
BAY RIDGE, Brooklyn — A rally was held Monday in support of a former aide to Council Member Vincent Gentile.

In December, Michael Bistreich filed a $10 million lawsuit against the city, accusing Gentile and his staff of bullying and tormenting him because he has Asperger's Syndrome.
