Lui Wants You to Pay City Fines Which He Ducks

Do As I Say Liu Says Pay All Your Parking Fines
Don't Do As I Do Liu Does Not Pay His Poster Fines
Controller John Liu says no more ticket to slide for businesses hit with parking fines (NYDN) Liu wants to fix program that allows companies to pay discounted rate if they agree not to contest the tickets. Liu wants the city to fix a program that goes easy on big companies when their workers rack up parking tickets but has recently been exploited by many businesses. John Liu vows to fight $527,400 in campaign poster fines from 2009(NYP)

Why Didn't The Daily News Reporter Erin Durkin Ask Liu About His Hypocrisy on Fine Paying
 The News slams City Comptroller John Liu for trying to “weasel out” of paying $527,000 in campaign poster fines during his 2009 comptroller run while also releasing an audit showing the city failed to collect parking ticket fines: 

Setting the Table for A Pay Raise
Cuomo suggested that more state records, such as Assemblyman Vito Lopez’s confidential sexual harassment settlement, receive the same public scrutiny as executive agency records
Cuomo’s ‘secret’ pol offer(NYP)  He suggested subjecting more state legislative records — like the “secret,” taxpayer-funded $103,080 payment to settle sex-harassment charges against Assemblyman Vito Lopez  — to the same public scrutiny as executive agency records. It’s part of his price for a potential legislative pay raise, along with hiking the minimum wage, decriminalizing minor pot possessions during stop-and-frisk procedures and partial taxpayer financing of state elections. * Sunlight on Lobbying in Albany(NYT Ed) The new ethics law should not be undermined by lobbying organizations that don’t want to identify their major contributors. * Cuomo added FOIL reform – specifically that the Legislature be subject to the law, which it now is not – to the growing list of things he would like to see lawmakers pass before they get a pay raise. * Brooklyn State Supreme Court Judge Carl Landicino, Assemblyman Vito Lopez’s former counsel, was arrested for driving drunk on the Northway near Colonie.

NY1 Covers the Horse Race Over the Issues With A Marist Pollster Organization Who Showed Bloomberg Winning by 16% the Last Week of the Campaign (He Won By 5%)
NY1-Marist Poll Shows More Undecided Voters In Mayor Race(NY1) 23 percent of the city’s registered Democrats support Quinn, according to the latest NY1-Marist College poll. That’s just eight points ahead of former City Comptroller Bill Thompson. Current Comptroller John Liu places third with nine percent, followed by Public Advocate Bill de Blasio 8% , Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer 6%  and publisher Tom Allon 2%, who announced this week that he’ll run as a Republican instead. A whopping 37 percent of voters, meanwhile, are undecided.  Meanwhile, enthusiasm has cooled for a Ray Kelly candidacy. Where voters were about evenly split in April, 46 percent now say they don’t want the police commissioner to run, versus 35 percent who do. As for speculation that one-time mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner could mount a comeback, voters aren’t having it. 58 percent don’t want him to run again. Just 25 percent do. NYC voters aren’t enthusiastic about a potential Alec Baldwin candidacy for mayor in 2013.   The media reports on  the Marist Poll  without examining the accuracy of a poll which showed the mayor beating Thompson in 2009 by 16% a week before the election. * City Hall Horse Race: Marist Mania Edition(NYO)

NYP Warns Quinn to Stick to Her Gun and Not Allow A Vote On the Sick Pay Bill . .  She Throw A Bone to Bill Supporters By Scheduling Another hearing On the Bill
The paid sick-leave tax(NYP Ed) The question is whether the council should force private business owners to provide paid sick leave to workers. The Post cheers Council Speaker Christine Quinn for resisting calls to pass paid sick leave and calls it a “crushing new tax on small businesses”

Assemblywoman Grace Meng and Councilman Dan Halloran clashed in front of a Republican-leaning crowd at a congressional debate in Middle Village, Queens on Thursday night. Halloran earned cheers for his positions on the economy, taxes, health care and immigration, where he said that illegal immigrants should not be allowed to become citizens and that their children should not be eligible for college scholarships. Meng allowed that the country must strengthen its borders, but reiterated her support for the DREAM Act. When given the opportunity to ask a question to the challenger, Meng asked Halloran to name the bills he sponsored in the City Council, which he did easily, and Halloran asked Meng to justify her poor attendance in Albany since she declared her bid for Congress this spring. Meng stammered that her attendance prior to April was above 90 percent. “I had to make a choice to meet constituents and talk with them about their issues,” she said. “I had to make a tough choice. I’m still paying rent in Albany. No one wants to be there more than I do.” Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, who lost a primary race to Meng, said that Meng held her own among a tough crowd. “This is the most conservative part of the district, and they received her warmly,” she said. (City and State) * Here’s a quick snapshot of the Juniper Park Civic Association debate, which also happened last night, between Assemblywoman Grace Meng and GOP Councilman Dan Halloran, both congressional candidates.

Bloomberg Sock Puppet CFB Allows Him to Break the Law  . . .
Mayor Broke Election Law, Admit His Own Lawyers (2010, Village Voice)* The CFB said Bloomberg’s 2009 re-election campaign “contravened” the spirit of New York City’s public-disclosure rules by secretly funneling $1.2 million  to the Independence Party, but did not penalize him for that.

The $1.1 Million Gift Bloomberg Made to the Independence Party and Haggerty Got Was Away Considered Illegal . . .  Now the CFB Finally Rules
Bloomberg Honored Letter, but Not Spirit, of Campaign Finance Law, Board Finds(NYT) The city’s Campaign Finance Board said that an undisclosed $1.2 million payment to the Independence Party by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s 2009 re-election campaign broke no rules. The $1.1 was deposited in the independence party Westchester house keep account and $750,000 was forwarded to Haggerty for election day security.  Which is an illegal used of housekeeping account.  No much from the House Keeping account according to the election law can be used for campaigning. But Laurence D. Laufer, the election lawyer and former general counsel to the board who filed the 2009 complaint on behalf of Mr. Thompson, said that the board merely “passes the buck” to Albany. Don't expect the State Board of Elections go after Bloomberg any time soon or ever. * No Penalty for Bloomberg’s Secretive Re-Election Spending(WSJ)

Elex board eyes ‘Indie gift’(NYP) The city Campaign Finance Board is probing a $1.1 million payment Mayor Bloomberg’s campaign made in 2009 that was largely ripped off by a political operative, who was tried and convicted last year. The board will hold a hearing today on a complaint against the campaign’s “pre-election payments to the Independence Party.” The complaint — which spokesman Eric Friedman would not discuss ahead of the hearing — could result in a fine to the billionaire mayor’s self-financed 2009 re-election bid. The CFB will hear a complaint about Mayor Bloomberg’s $1.1 million to the state Independence Party in 2009, $750,000 of which was funneled to GOP operative John Haggerty, who was convicted of grand larceny and money laundering in December. The NYC Campaign Finance Board found no punishable violation committed by Mayor Bloomberg in connection to the $1.1 million he contributed without disclosure to the state Independence Party in 2009, determining there was no evidence the money was spent to assist his campaign because GOP operative John Haggerty stole it. 

Bloomberg Sucessful Effort to get Out of and Election Law Fine Created  A New Loophole to the State's Election Law
In an email to CrainNY, a spokesman for the board wrote that the rule election law rules, “just doesn’t apply to the facts” because “there is no evidence there were actual expenditures for ballot security or poll watchers.” (That’s because Mr. Haggerty ended up stealing Mr. Bloomberg’s money instead of running a ballot security operation.) The spokesman said that the BOE rule would not apply because no poll watchers were actually hired by the Independence Party. * Bloomberg campaign ruling could open spending loophole (CrainsNY) * Regulators Issue No Violations for Bloomberg's 'Secret' Donations Gotham Gazette  * Finding Jobs, but Working for Less Pay(WSJ) Economists and business leaders are increasingly troubled by a trend in New York City employment statistics: The lion's share of job growth has come in high-wage and low-wage industries, while middle-income work has lagged. * As the rest of the state continues to add jobs at a moderate pace, WNY lost jobs for the second straight month during September.
