"Too late!" you may be saying. But Tony is not outing her sexual orientation. Rather, he's alleging that her current bid to remove pedicabs from city streets is because she got paid off by lobbyists:
Tony Avella of Queens, was one of seven council members who in late February voted against the bill, which he described as a way to kill the pedicab industry. Mr. Avella said his colleagues are following Ms. Quinn's wishes because her support is essential when trying to introduce legislation or secure funding for projects in a member's district.
"The power of the speaker is incredible when used in this type of situation," he said. "And that's a situation that really has to change. We talk about three men in a room in Albany. Well, the City Council is getting just as bad."

"She wants to be mayor, she needs their money," Mr. Bliss said, referring to Ms. Quinn. "It is clear there is a quid pro quo between the speaker and the taxi lobby."
