Which tweeders will flip?

It was only three short months ago that these words appeared in a letter sent to Amanda Burden:

"We write to share with you our absolute opposition to the current Willets Point Plan...this is a product of a flawed process that has continously ignored the requests of the community in pursuit of a top-down planning process that sets a dangerous precedent for large-scale development projects citywide...the community has unified around an agenda calling for a plan that takes eminent domain off the table in all acquisition negotiations...Before this project proceeds to a doomed fate in the council, we strongly urge the administration to come to the table and work with us to address and resolve the issues of the Willets Point Community."

Hiram Monserrate, Tony Avella, Thomas White, James Sanders, Jr., Maria del Carmen Arroyo, Annabel Palma, Letitia James, Sara Gonzalez, Darlene Mealy, Mathieu Eugene, Vincent Gentile, Diana Reyna, Albert Vann, Charles Barron, James Gennaro, David Weprin, Rosie Mendez, Miguel Martinez, Gale Brewer, Eric Gioia, Robert Jackson, Melissa Mark-Viverito, Joe Addabbo, Bill deBlasio, Larry Seabrook, Eric Martin Dilan, Kendall Stewart, Helen Foster, Inez Dickens, David Yassky

I'll be doing a "profile in tweeding" in the near future for each council member who flips today.

Word has it that Gioia
has already greased up his ass
with "jiffy lube' in anticipation of Der Mayor's schvance
(a metaphor for receiving political favors)!

Avella won't flip
and he hasn't sucked
up to Bloomberg yet!

don't post no more photos like that. I feel bad for Eric's wife.

come on, basically Eric's good guy. but then why does he hire only 20 year olds who don't know squat in his office? Why have all the decent veteran staffers fled? do they know something we don't?

why does he have staff who say things like there are other people I have to help, I can't help you?

and he wants to be Public Advocate?

Eric Goia can forget about being elected as Public Advocate. No one will vote for this guy because he can't be trusted and he flip flops on a daily basis. Maybe it's time to get out of public service (if you can call it that) and join the corporate world.

I do hereby nominate "Pinky" Gallagher for PUBIC advocate...
heh, heh, heh.

He needs the hair
to fight camera glare!
