The Working Families Party has endorsed Tahanie Aboushi, a Palestinian-American civil rights attorney whose father spent two decades in federal prison, in the crowded race for Manhattan District Attorney, a contest increasingly defined by what candidates won’t prosecute, rather than what they will.

In explaining the party’s pick, WFP State Director, Sochie Nnaemeka, pointed to Aboushi’s detailed list of crimes the office will decline to prosecute if she’s elected as well as a commitment to reduce the budget of the District Attorney’s office by half and to use those funds to make direct investments in communities.

“Tahanie’s clearly running to transform the office,” Nnaemeka said. “Her commitment to the values of transforming an office that’s caused undue harm on vulnerable communities was also married with a clear implementation plan.”

In the competitive race for Manhattan District Attorney where many candidates are running on reform-minded platforms, the WFP endorsement is a highly coveted one, and their party’s resources can give Aboushi a boost. She’s currently trailing behind other candidates in fundraising efforts.

Other endorsements are stacking up as well. Tali Farhadian Weinstein, who’s surpassed other candidates in fundraising, has the backing of her old boss, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, among others. Alvin Bragg, who worked in the State Attorney General’s office, has the support of Gwen Carr, the mother of Eric Garner, and former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara.

Former Manhattan prosecutor Diana Florence, has the backing of a host of labor unions.

It’s not clear from her website what endorsements criminal defense attorney Elizabeth Crotty has garnered, and she didn’t return a request for comment right away. Assemblymember Dan Quart has the support of a slate of Manhattan Democratic Clubs and elected officials. Public defender Eliza Orlins has the backing of the progressive LGBTQ+ advocacy group Our Damn Time, while former Manhattan prosecutor Lucy Lang has the support of several prosecutors and the family members of Black men killed by police.

The left-leaning Working Families Party, which hasn’t yet weighed in on the mayor’s race, has made endorsements for Brooklyn Borough President Comptroller, Public Advocate and a slate of City Council candidates.
