From today's Post:
Sources said three council members, Jessica Lappin, Michael McMahon and Anthony Como, were given the green light by the mayor and Quinn to vote down the mayor's bill as long as they vote against the amendment.
Como and McMahon did not return calls for comment.
And from the News:
Opponents of Mayor Bloomberg's term limits extension bill are prevailing on billionaire Tom Golisano to target the double negative Council members - that is to say, those who plan to vote "no" on the referendum amendment and "no" on the mayor's bill - who are on the ballot in the Nov. 4 election.
In the cross hairs are Councilman Anthony Como, a Queens Republican who is seeking re-election to the seat he won in a June special election, and Councilman Mike McMahon, a Staten Island Democrat who is running for the seat being vacated by Rep. Vito Fossella.
"The idea is that residents of the district will understand that these candidates perpetrated a sham on the people by pretending to be on the side of the public but actually voting in such a way that allowed the mayor to get what he wants," said a source familiar with the ask made of Golisano.
"It's still being worked out, but it would be mail and TV in the districts over the next 10 days. The conversations took place yesterday. Six figures in a congressional or Council district is a lot."
