Quinn crapping out with donors

A federal investigation into the City Council’s longstanding practice of allocating millions of dollars to phantom nonprofit groups seems to have dealt a blow to Speaker Christine C. Quinn’s fund-raising, based on her latest figures.

Quinn Donors Giving Less Amid Inquiry Into Council

Ms. Quinn, who is running for mayor, raised $620,000 in the first six months of 2008 — just as news of the scandal was spreading — according to preliminary totals released on Saturday. During the prior six months, by contrast, she raised $1.1 million. Altogether, she has raised $3 million, and has $2.8 million on hand for the September 2009 Democratic primary.

Why can't she raise campaign funds from phantom donors?

Then she can run as the phantom mayor.

Can't you just see "Clairol Christine" and "Alley Katz" flat f----g together as political porn stars?

That's how they perform for the developers anyway.

Might as well see them do the real thing.

On second thought, never mind...I'll pass!
