Quinn in the clear?

From the NY Post:

Council Speaker Christine Quinn has told colleagues that she does not expect federal authorities to issue any indictments as a result of the council slush-fund scandal, but The Post has learned a "scathing report" could be on the way.

Several sources said they have been informed by Quinn (D-Manhattan), her staff or others familiar with the investigation that the US Attorney's Office has found no basis to indict anyone from the council in the practice of funding sham organizations.

The sources said they were informed that there would be "a scathing report but no indictments" in the council's longstanding practice, first reported by The Post last year, of funneling public money into fake charities to later spend it on pet projects.

Which US Attorney dropped the ball? The rabbit appointed by Republican Bush, or the replacement puppet appointed by Democrat Obama?

Who is enforcing the law here?

It's amazing to me that ALL of these City Council pols are made of teflon. Nothing sticks to them. Who's kidding who here. There should have been a special prosecutor brought in the beginning of this investigation.

Will we ever know what fast and furious deals were made behind the scenes all these months? Did the people who lived at the time of the Borgias and the Medicis know how much scandal and corruption was going on around them or did they like us just live their everyday lives, trying to just get by? Thieves! Yes!

I thought Pete Vallone was bad.

Speaker Quinn is far worse!

It's a vicious cycle when the prosecutors and judges are crooks too!

Democracy is dead with Clairol Christine being exonerated!
