A Roberta Flack footnote; her lawyer is Nets investor

So why exactly was singer Roberta Flack, not exactly a Brooklynite, front and center at the press event/rally held before the Aug. 23 Draft Environmental Impact Statement hearing?

Well, here's a suggestion: Flack is represented by L. Londell McMillan, a Brooklyn-born entertainment attorney who owns a piece of the Nets. (He travels in some of the same circles as hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, another Nets owner).

Also, successful 11th Congressional District candidate Yvette Clarke got a boost from McMillan, who helped organize some high-profile women to back Clarke and raise funds for her. And we know that Michael Ratner supported Clarke too.
