Yet another interesting story out of America's foremost City of Liberals.

Brooklyn District Attorney-elect Ken Thompson is happy to be taking Charles Hynes’ seat next week — but he says the veteran lawman can keep his throne.

Thompson transition aide Arnie Kriss has told a Hynes staffer that Thompson wants the toilet seat in the district attorney’s private bathroom replaced, said a source close to the outgoing DA.

“Kriss said Thompson wants a new toilet seat installed in the DA’s private bathroom because he doesn’t want to sit on the same toilet seat that Hynes sat on,” the source said.

“You’d think he’d be worried about running the office, not about a toilet seat.”

Kriss made the unusual request at a transition meeting last Thursday, a source said.

“If you asked de Blasio if he’s changing Bloomberg’s toilet seats, I bet the answer is no. Who the f- -k thinks of changing the toilet seat? It’s bizarre,” said the source, adding both the seat and the toilet were replaced about six months ago and are almost brand new.

Another source confirmed Thompson’s potty plan and said the other requests were for routine tasks such as cleaning offices.

“As he’s ascending to the throne, he wants to make sure it’s his throne,” the source said.

The private bathroom connects to the DA’s wood-paneled office on the 19th floor of the Downtown Brooklyn building. It has a phone and can function as a safe room in an emergency, sources said.

Hynes spokesman Jerry Schmetterer declined to comment.

Hmmm. I wonder if this help explain it plus the silence of the media.

<<<Thompson   >>>Hynes

Spritz a little Lysol on it, you'll be fine, Ken.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
