From the Times Ledger:
Hevesi, who faces up to four years in prison plus fines for securities fraud, was released on his own recognizance after turning in his passport earlier in the day.
City Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz (D-Forest Hills) and Assemblyman Rory Lancman (D-Fresh Meadows) refused to comment on the Hevesi plea, U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Forest Hills) did not return phone calls and city Comptroller John Liu was traveling on a plane.
Wow, not one tweeder had anything critical to say?
Oh, wait a minute: “This is not unexpected to those of us who were involved in the 2001 mayoral campaign,” said City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria). His father, Peter Vallone Sr., then the Council speaker, ran against Hevesi in a four-way race for the Democratic nomination for mayor. Hevesi finished last and the nod ultimately went to Mark Green.
Would love to hear the babysit...um, Melinda's take on this.
