Scala ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 5th District. He sought the nomination on the Democratic ticket and is one of three candidates defeated by incumbent Gregory Meeks in the June 26 Democratic primary.

Former city councilman Allan Jennings Jr. and small-business owner Joseph Marthone joined recent law-school graduate Scala, all hoping to be the one to receive the party nod over Meeks.[1]

The 29-year-old Scala graduated from law school on June 1, 2012, just a few weeks before the June 26 primary. He said he was most concerned with helping the lower and middle class.[2]

At a forum in early June, the three challengers and a representative of Meeks discussed issues of importance. Jennings called for an end to the NYPD "stop and frisk" policy. Marthone pledged to fight hydrofracking and airplane noise pollution. Scala criticized Meeks for supporting the Budget Control Act, which took away subsidized loans for graduate students.[1] Meeks was busy in Washington at the time of the forum, but his representative said that most of the issues brought up were city and state issues, not national ones -- indicating that the challengers were not prepared for federal politics.[1]
