Quinn silent on Crowley run

From True News from Change NYC:

As the Meng campaign works to remove Juan Sheng from the ballot and Rory Lancman works to remove Robert Mittman, why is Councilwoman Crowley getting no pressure to stop her from running? It is very curious that Speaker Quinn, who has endorsed Meng, did not threaten to cut Crowley's member items when she opposed her cousin Joe and decided to run against the Queens organization. Quinn slashed Vallone's annual discretionary funding -- a move widely seen as punishment for his vehement opposition to renaming the Queensboro Bridge in honor of the former mayor.

After all, Nussbaum, who is involved in Meng's campaign, tried to find a Jewish candidate to split Lancman's votes in that community. Where is Crowley's punishment? Or is Quinn in on the conspiracy to soak up ethnic votes that would not go for an Asian candidate? Is Quinn's non-response to Elizabeth Crowley part of a deal to get the Queens Democrat Machine's support for her for mayor?

Fair and possibly true comment but Quinn will need much more than the Asian vote to become Hizzona'.

Wasn't Quinn the one who liked to yell & dance topless in a Peter Pan costume ? Especially on St.Patrick's cathedrals front steps every March 17.
(back in the late 80's)

Perhaps Lizzy will dance topless for votes and green backs

And the sun will set in the west tonight and rise in the east tomorrow morning. That's my prediction.

There are a lot more important issues to deal with.

Crowley is in to split the anti-Meng vote among several candidates. They know what's going to happen if it winds up being only Lancman and Meng on the ballot.

Yep, sounds like Crowley and Quinn are in bed together.

The literal imagery of that ranks up there with Melinda Katz and Curtis Sliwa.
