From the NY Post:
Disgraced City Councilman Dan Halloran preyed upon the “naive” staffer with whom he carried on a yearlong affair — and should rot in jail, the woman’s father told The Post yesterday.
“He took advantage of a naive 19-to-20-year-old girl,” Meaghan Mapes’ dad, Walter Mapes, said of the pol, who is charged with trying to bribe state Sen. Malcolm Smith’s way onto the GOP mayoral ticket.
“What [Halloran] did to the public is nothing like what he did to me and my family,” Walter said outside the family’s home in Howard Beach, Queens.
The Post reported yesterday that Halloran, 41, spent about two nights a week shacking up with Meaghan at her Queens home near St. John’s University, where she attended classes while serving as Halloran’s deputy chief of staff.
“I was completely unaware of it,” said Walter, 48. “I knew nothing more than [Meaghan] was the deputy chief of staff and that they worked together; that was all that I knew.”
So dad had no idea what was going on?
His comments on this Facebook thread from September 2011 (since deleted) are very interesting, then.

That's right, Queens pols. I'm watchin' ya!
