Aw, I want one now too. I wonder how I can get one without resorting to Ebay. I went to the NYC premiere of the first few minutes of the film and I have signed up for the various viral sites online. Darn, maybe the postage is too much for Gotham City to New York City.

It seems that everything is pointing to Joker using a carnival as his lair. Look at the articles about it.

Awesome!

Default New Gotham Times articles typed up (THANKS femidk!)

Many thanks to femidk for providing the pics for these. Will update with each article soon as I can :]

Harvey Dent Joins Race For Gotham DA

Assistant District Attorney Harvey Dent, taking advantage of political momentum after his initial prosecutions of corrupt GPD officials, announced his candidacy for Gotham DA at the infamous Krol Projects in crime-ridden East End.

"I say to Gotham today, we can make our city safe for families once again," Dent proclaimed on a cold, crisp day outside the most dangerous public housing project in the city, "With your help, I will fight with every available means against the alliance of corrupt cops and organized crime that has brought this city to its knees," he continued. Dent named reported mob leader Sal Maroni as one of his chief targets if he is elected.

Dent's entry into the race has been called "the worst kept secret in Gotham" and was widely expected.

The Assistant DA's call for a show of support from Gotham citizens before he declared his candidacy succeeded in recent weeks, with signs, posters, and spontaneous events revealing strength for Dent in almost every neighborhood of the city.

The race for District Attorney now is set up as perhaps the most emotional campaign in recent Gotham history, observers said. Relations between Dent and the sitting District Attorney, Roger Garcetti, have been fraying almost since the moment Dent joined the District Attorney's office.

"Garcetti and Dent have been at each other's throats since dat one," said one high-level official in City Hall. "Garcetti looks at Dent as a media-mad upstart, and Dent sees Garcetti as part of the old guard which has led Gotham into a tailspin of crime and corruption."

In the stark surroundings of the grim, concrete projects, Dent gave a classic stemwinder in the best Gotham tradition. he spoke without notes for over an hour, detailing his love of Gotham, describing the city's perilous situation today, and boasting of his ability to put and end to the city's "unholy alliance" of mob bosses and political officials. He returned, again and again, to the "network of crime, corruption, incompetence, and cowardice" which he claimed was devastating the city.

"The same people who are supposed to protect us are instead betraying us. Every cop that turns the other way for a little extra cash is betraying us. Every official more concerned with his own political future than the public safety is betraying us. And every district attorney too weak or too scared to really take on organized crime is betraying us," Dent said in a heated speech which was interrupted by applause 19 times.

District Attorney Roger Garcetti's election team was quick to fight back against Dent's portrait of their campaign as "too weak or too scared." Garcetti's campaign manager Jamison Starns called Dent's attack "an admission that Dent has no positive plans for Gotham. Dent is an angry man on a witch hunt to take down good cops to feed his lust for power," said Starns.

In his short time as Assistant District Attorney in Gotham, Dent has made a name for himself by investigating and charging Gotham police officers working in conjunction with GPD's Internal Affairs department.

but his latest investigation of corrupt cops went awry when a shootout during an attempted arrest left one cop dead, GPD officer Karl Breitup. Two citizens were also injured in the melee at Betty's House of Pies. Dent was promptly attacked by his political opponents after the "Pie-Die Incident" as it became known. "Dent was responsible for that man's death the moment he decided to put lives at risk for a good video clip on the evening news," District Attorney Garcetti said at the time.

According to the polls, Dent is a controversial figure who gets strong marks for the ability to "get things done" even as equal numbers of Gotham voters wonder if Dent may be "dishonest or has something to hide."

Those negative feelings may ironically be the result of his past successes, which created enormous amounts of ill-will within the Gotham establishment.

Even at the peak of his success, Dent was often the target of backstage criticism by fellow prosecutors. Their most common criticism was that Dent was an overly zealous Torquemada who hungered for newspaper headlines. Dent can expect much more criticism as the campaign goes on, observers told The Times

"Dent is going to take some serious dents before this one is over," said Gotham political consultant Walt DeFabrizo. "A lot of people are gunning for him."

Dent's announcement turns the campaign for DA into an official three-way race. District Attorney Roger Garcetti announced his candidacy two weeks ago. Victim Advocate foundation President Dana Worthington is also running for the spot.

The Iceberg Lounge? Maybe the Penguin's appearance in Nolan's movies isn't so unlikely after all, since that's where Ozzy hangs out. Or maybe it's just a nod to the comics. Either way, pretty awesome.

Garcetti Vows "Cleanest Campaign in Gotham History"

Acting District Attorney Roger Garcetti vowed to run "the cleanest campaign in Gotham history" today at a press conference in City Hall.

The candidate used the opportunity to chastise main rival Harvey Dent for running a "vicious smear campaign" that attempted to "cast suspicions on my integrity."

"One of my opponents has consistently spread rumors to the press questioning my integrity," Garcetti said, genteelly refusing to mention Dent by name. "These types of dirty tricks are not good for Gotham. I implore all my opponents to follow my example and run a clean campaign focused on the issues."

Garcetti challenged his main opponents Harvey Dent and Dana Worthington to sign a "clean campaign pledge" that would prohibit campaigns from sending out negative direct mail pieces, smear e-mails, and relying on "destructive personal attacks" during the race.

Gotham politics have always been rough-and-tumble, but in recent years the attacks between candidates have become more and more vicious. Emails rumored to reveal an adulterous affair found on a hard drive belonging to candidate for Mayor Allan Fieldworthy derailed his campaign four years ago.

And last year, City Councilman Sidney Vallencio lost his campaign for re-election when opponents presented what they called "Sid's longtime drug dealer" to the public.

Garcetti said he had faxed and mailed his "clean campaign pledge" to both Dent and Worthington and was "awaiting their response."

"I have a long history of service, and that is what I'm running on," said Garcetti. "Negative attacks have to stop, but that's all I hear from my opponents."

Initial reaction from Gotham's political watchdogs was positive to Garcetti's pledge. The Lady Voters of Gotham issued a press release endorsing Garcetti's clean campaign challenge, and asked all candidates to refrain from personal attacks. Gotham's good Government Alliance also supported Garcetti's initiative.

Garcetti's advisors privately speak of their fears that Dent will run a "dirty campaign" that attempts to link the Acting District Attorney with corruption and organized crime.

"We hear insinuations over and over again from the Dent camp that somehow Garcetti is connected with the corruption Dent is claiming to root out," said Garcetti's media strategist Maureen Madgey. "It's the most vicious smear imaginable."

Dent spokesmen said that they were studying the pledge. Worthington representatives were not available for comment.
