The Council’s Committee on Standards and Ethics has declined to hold any hearings FOR THE MOMENT on Councilman Dennis Gallagher, at the request of Queens District Attorney Richard Brown, who is investigating criminal rape charges against the lawmaker.
No Council Hearings On Gallagher
Ok, how about all the other allegations against Pinky? Why not investigate those?
Just days after Queens Councilman Dennis Gallagher appeared in handcuffs to face charges of rape, he didn't show up to a City Council meeting Monday where his colleagues voted unanimously to remove him from his Minority Whip post and from all six of his committee assignments.
Council members voted 37 to 0 to remove Gallagher. Gallagher said he did not attend the meeting because of a prior commitment. In total 14 members were absent.
Indicted Councilman Removed From Leadership Post
Wonder what "prior commitments" these people had and with whom. Maybe I'll try that excuse next time I don't feel like going in to work. If they don't go in, do they get paid for the day? Damn, a $112K job where you aren't even expected to show up. I like the sound of that.
