Well I Thought, No I Was Expecting The Leader Of This Mayoral Circus Ring To Make Herself Shine From Another’s Bad Publicity. Only When Bad Press Befall’s An Opponent Does She, Christine Quinn Shine.
In a public spanking, retired public-school teacher Peg Brunda refused to shake Anthony Weiner’s hand after telling him his pervy behavior made him unfit to be mayor.
“Had I conducted myself in the manner in which you conducted yourself, my job would have been gone,” the 30-year teaching veteran told Weiner during a visit to Superstorm Sandy-damaged homes on Staten Island.
“In the privacy of your home?” asked Weiner defensively.
“In the privacy of my home . . . I don’t quite understand how you would feel you would have the moral authority as the head administrator in this city to oversee employees when your standard of conduct is so much lower than the standard of conduct that’s expected of us.”
Having Been For Year’s In The City Council As A Member Then As It’s Ringleader,Who Best To Detail Another’s Dysfunction While Ignoring One’s Own Failing’s Christine Quinn Is The Epitomy Of Hypocrisy To Call Anthony Weiner Unfit To Lead NYC As It’s Mayor.While It Is True That Disgraced Former Congressman Anthony Weiner Is UNFIT To Be The leader Of NYC, We Must Never Ever Forget That The So Called Speaker A Democrat Saw Fit To Overturn Through Sheer Gall, Two Voter Referendum’s Voted On On Two Seperate Occassion’s To Limit A Mayor’s And City Council Term’s To Two, Four Year Term’s.
“Today our government chose to empower itself rather than the people it serves,” said Thompson in 2008, who’s again running for mayor.
In an email, Thompson’s spokesman Brendan Brosh wrote, “The term limits vote was a dark moment for the people of New York where the will of voters that was expressed on two separate occasions at the ballot box was overturned by the Mayor and the Speaker of the City Council. Voters have long memories and will remember those elected officials that knowingly disregarded the will of New Yorkers in 2008.”
She Oversaw The implementation Of CityTime, The 911 Emergency System, The Theft Of Water Front Properties By The Wealthy And Well Connected Developer’s, The Explosion Of The Homeless Population To Level’s Bot Seen Since The Great Depression, The Closure And Fire Sale Of Our Precious Hospital’s, The NYPD Ticket Scandal, The Wholesale Closure’s Of NYC School’s, The Invasion Of Private Charter School’s Into Our Public School Building’s, And The Loss Of Thousand’s Of Rent Regulated Apartment’s.
The List Of Failures Is Quite Endless For This Circus Leader, More Of A BIG CLOWN If You Ask The Populace.
Of Course Next To Her Greatest Democratic Failure Of Overturning Term Limit’s There Is Her Participation In The Infamous Slushfund That Saw A Few Official’s From The City Council On Their Way To Prison, All Under Watch.
After a spirited, emotional and at times raucous debate, the New York City Council voted, 29 to 22, on Thursday afternoon to extend term limits, allowing Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to seek re-election next year and undoing the result of two voter referendums that had imposed a limit of two four-year terms.
The vote was a major victory for Mayor Bloomberg — a billionaire and lifelong Democrat who was elected mayor as a Republican in 2001, won re-election in 2005, became an independent last year, and decided just weeks ago that he wished to seek a third term for himself in 2009 — and for the Council’s speaker, Christine C. Quinn. But the intense acrimony surrounding the decision left a sharply divided Council and could ultimately damage the mayor’s popularity.
In Case You Are Interested, Here Was That Infamous Vote:

While She Gifted To Herself, The mayor And 29 City Council Member’s An Illegal Third Term, She Was Embroiled Up To Her Elbow’s In The Slushfund Debacle.
“City Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s office hid millions of taxpayer dollars by allocating grants to phantom organizations as a way of holding the funds to dole out political favors later — bogus bookkeeping that is the subject of city and federal probes,” Frankie Edozien reported in the New York Post on April 3. Granted that the Post is a right-wing homophobic mouthpiece for Australian media magnate Rupert Murdoch. But it is not just the Post that is asking tough questions of the Speaker; it is also the entire New York media, including the New York Times, the New York Daily News, Newsday (the leading daily on Long Island), and the local network affiliates.
And Even Boasted About It.
“Did I think, as a speaker, having the [reserve] money to give out through the year might give me political leverage? Of course, I did,” Quinn told New York magazine for its current edition.
Sources have said that Quinn doled out the funds to curry favor with certain council members and special-interest groups.For a candidate for mayor, the support of key council members across the city could be very useful in building a citywide campaign, experts have said.
Since 1999, about $17 million in council monies have been set aside in phantom organizations that were later given out at the speaker’s discretion. Quinn said she recognized that her interest in using the council’s discretionary funds for political purposes contradicts her reform agenda and push for “transparency.”
Never Mind That As Speaker She Went Along Without A Word From Her Beak While Bloomberg Proposed Legislation That Usurped The Department Of Health Authority On Sugared Drink’s, Trans Fats, Fee For Plastic Grocery Shopping Bag’s, Toll’s On NYC Bridge’s Linking Queen’s, Brooklyn And The Bronx, And The Westside Stadium Debacle,
All While MTA Fares Rose Every Year As Well As Rent’s, Verrazano Bridge Toll’s Hike’s.
Let The Voter never Forget This Lack Of Oversight On Quinn’s Part As Well As Her Puppetmaster Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg On Citytime, A Program Originally Costing Just 80 Million Taxpayer Dollar’s..
It’s “lucky” that there was massive fraud in the CityTime contract because the city ended up with a giant bargain, Mayor Bloomberg said yesterday.
The mayor said the entire embarrassing episode actually ended up saving taxpayers money to finance the new employee payroll system because the city recovered $525 million from the contractor, defense giant SAIC.
“That whole system cost us something like only $100 million, and it should have been many times that. We were lucky,” Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show, “because of the fraud.”
“In the end it turned out that because of the recovery that we saved a lot of money. And it certainly works,” he said.
But critics of the debacle were bewildered by Bloomberg’s reasoning.
“The heat must be getting to Mayor Bloomberg, who conveniently forgets that his gross mismanagement led to consultants ripping off taxpayers to the tune of a half-billion dollars just from CityTime, and millions more from other consultants,” said a spokeswoman for city Comptroller John Liu.
Brooklyn Councilwoman Letitia James called the mayor’s comment “outrageous and irresponsible.”
