Carter's candidacy for the State Senate was plagued with scandals, and she suffered from low poll numbers.
She took on the case of Robert Purcell, the accused killer of Leon Vorgitch, who killed his daughter and four others in a school shooting. She attempted to use his case as a platform to advance her campaign by appealing to the public's desire to reinstate the death penalty in New York, but ultimately failed.
