As New York State Sen. Kevin Parker was about to go to trial more than a year after being charged with assaulting New York Post photographer William Lopez, the case was further delayed when prosecutors realized that a district attorney staff member’s father is running against Parker in the Democratic primary and has been involved in three lawsuits that involve Parker.

In an editorial noting the postponement until October, the Post says the case against Parker now awaits appointment of two special prosecutors, one to take over the case and the other to look into why Wynton Sharpe never mentioned his father’s connection to Parker.

According to the Post, Sharpe — who is suspended without pay — worked in the unit that was prosecuting Parker but was not directly connected to case.
