Summary Civil Court Judge Maxine Archer has accused "a prominent lawyer who claimed he was working on behalf of Brooklyn Congressman Edolphus Towns" of demanding $140,000 to help the unopposed incumbent get re-elected. She refused and produced a letter with his breakdown of her re-election budget, which she says amounts to "extortion."
