True News Updated 24/7

The Daily News Does Their Annual Spanking of Quinn and the Councilmembers that Pocket Lulus

  What About Quinn's Tool Box

We do not understand why the news breaks up all the tools that Quinn uses to control and payoff councilmembers. Including: Member items (remember Seabrook and the slush fund), redistricting (almost all incumbents who can run got good districts, Quinn made other deals with political leaders all over the city).

Quinn’s funny money(NYDN) About half of the City Council’s 51 members say they disagree with Speaker Christine Quinn’s blatantly wrong practice of giving cash bonuses, called lulus, to favored members. The lulus, in theory assigned for committee chairmanships and the like, range from the yearly $28,500 Quinn pockets down to $4,000. That’s over and above the very healthy $112,500 the pols earn in salary for their part-time positions.

Closing Subway Entrances?

Subway ‘shut’ threat(NYP)  It may soon take more than a MetroCard to get into some overcrowded subway stations. The MTA has told community leaders in Midtown Manhattan that it could one day be forced to follow London’s policy of shutting subway entrances for short periods to ensure safety if it can’t secure funding to improve passenger flow at the most congested stations.

How Mayors Are Made

Tragedies Have Been Very Important in the Election of New York's Last Three Mayors
The Making of Mayors
Koch used the 1977 blackout and looting that followed. He campaigned demanding that Looters be put in jail.  In 1993 Giuliani used the Crown Heights Riots and the high crime rate to defeat Dinkins.  In 2001 New York voters elected unknown Bloomberg against very liberal Greeen after the WTC attack.

Political Corruption

Elected Officials and Their Friends Hours After the Member Item Checks Arrive

Huntley and Cook Go Shopping On Our Dime
Two local Dems tax-$$ embezzlement ‘shopping spree’ (NYP) New York state Assemblywoman Vivian Cook allegedly funneled thousands of dollars in public money to a corrupt fellow legislator — and was then rewarded with lavish shopping trips underwritten by taxpayer funds 

Silence In Albany About Reforms To Stop the Stealing
“I have an agreement with a member of the New York state Assembly,” Huntley told a judge. “This person ensured that state funds would be directed to PIN for what is known as ‘member items,’ ” Huntley explained. “Once PIN received the state funds, I alerted this person, and together we used PIN’s funds for personal shopping.” Although her name was not mentioned in court, Cook has been identified as the state Assembly member who earmarked the tax dollars for Huntley’s private organization, according to several sources.*  Shirley Huntley's theft of taxpayer money shows everything that's wrong with Albany(NYDN)  Former state senator scammed $87,700 through a bogus nonprofit

Real Victims Blame Huntley and Cook for Another Reason Schools Fail
The government money that Cook and Huntley was supposed to underwrite the nonprofit, which promised to provide information and hold workshops on leadership and parenting skills for public-school parents.Isn’t giving a voice to parents, and all constituents, precisely the job of elected officials like Huntley?

Both Huntley’s and Cook’s alleged activities were uncovered by a team of FBI agents and prosecutors from the US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn that is probing political corruption in southeastern Queens. Among others already ensnared in that probe are Jimmy Meng, a former New York state assemblyman from Flushing who pleaded guilty in November to soliciting bribes. Edul Ahmad, a Queens businessman who loaned $40,000 to the embattled Rep. Gregory Meeks, pleaded guilty in October and is awaiting sentencing for a $50 million mortgage-fraud scheme.

NYP Looks At the Pols Non Profit Rip Off Game
NY’s profitable ‘Nonprofits’(NYP Ed)Former Bronx City Councilman Larry Seabrook, recall, was convicted last year in a similar scheme with nonprofits he controlled. He was sentenced to five years in prison last month. Huntley and Seabrook are out-and-out crooks; the UMEZ racket, by contrast, is perfectly legal. But they have something troubling in common: They all use “nonprofits” to steer bundles of taxpayer cash to government-selected recipients — without taxpayers seeing much gain for themselves.

Mental Health Of Liu's Bundler Delays Trial
Judge Postpones Trial Tied to Liu Fundraising(WSJ) A trial involving allegations of donor fraud in city Comptroller John Liu's campaign was postponed Friday because one of the defendants, a fundraiser, is suffering from an undisclosed medical condition.

Board of Election Crisis

BOE in Crisis Were is the Media Again?
True News Told You On July 16th that the City Council Controls the Appointment of  BOE Commissioner. City Council Eric Ulrich checked on the rules and found the council and BOE were not following the state law on the appointments of commissioners.  Now Quinn, the Board and City Council are in a panic on what to do.  The media as always is protecting the BOE and Quinn.So far this year they allowed votes that were not complete for certified to be cast in the electoral college voting process. The media also ignored the fact that Manhattan elected officials were serving in office before their votes were certified.  Brewer Who Threw Her Council Investigation of the BOE Mishandling of Last Years General Elections is Also Silent of the BOE City Council New Commissioner Scandal.

 Last week True News reported that City Council Eric Ulrich used the boards illegal appoints to get revenge on county leader Philip Ragusa by knocking out BOE commissioner Judith Stupp. Now Ulrich and other have become aware that most commissioner were illegally apointed by the BOE.  Now there is lost of confusion on how to appoint them legally.  The question is will the council use this opportunity To reform the BOE to stop the corruption there?
More on the Panic Over the Council Illegal Appointed Commissioners

Campaign 2013

Quinn the Acting Koch
Koch personality was in his DNAHe was realy you nutty uncle.  Quinn is trying to Kochlike through her consultants, acting teachers and big daddy Bloomberg.  New Yorkers witness Quinn's real presonality when she served as the mayor's puppet during her years as speaker. There is no candidate among the current crop of mayoral contenders who obviously fits that description of "Larger than Life". But Christine Quinn seemed to make a bid for it this week, beginning with that memorable New York cover, followed by her actually very sporting reaction to what a more self-serious or attention-hungry candidate might have blown into a very stupid controversy.

Groundhoggin’ the spotlight (NYP) She’s already acting like her honor! In Mayor Bloomberg’s absence, Council Speaker Christine Quinn — who hopes to succeed him at City Hall — performed Groundhog Day duties on Staten Island yesterday.

Leroy's rolling in it(Queens Crap)

From the Times Ledger:City Councilman Leroy Comrie (D-St. Albans), chairman of the Council’s powerful Land Use Committee, has drawn some interest from real estate industry donors in his campaign for borough president. Comrie’s financial disclosure for the race was filed nine days late with the City Campaign Finance Board, due to what the councilman said was a technical difficulty. The results now show he received about 17 percent of his donations from the real estate sector, the second-highest percentage of candidates in the race. The borough president has an advisory role in zoning, variance and land use applications in the borough.

Darts and laurels

For Bring Up the Corrupt Independence Party To Carrion
Laurel to Errol Lewis for Asking Errol Louis asked former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion if he thinks that anyone running on the Independence Party line is a party to a fraud.  Louis cited a recent Daily News investigation which showed that 169 of the 200 voters contracted though they were unaffiliated and not part of a political party.

Carrion did not answer the question at all.  First he cited that even Rupert Murdoch was fool by the true nature of the independence party.  Then the mayoral candidate then when into how the party has grown and made a difference in three elections (Bloomberg who paid for his Independence Party Line). Carrion continued that almost 40% of the voters in the nation are now independence because they are tired of old labels.

Lewis then asked Carrion if he thinks voters who though they were unaffiliated are now part of a political party that might anointed you as their candidate, which chiefly has bypassing democracy in all kinds of ways
Carrion answered that the same party has also help Schumer, Gillibrand, Pataki and Marty Connors. He said candidates seek that party line because there is a growing share of voters that say yes I feel contable for voting as and Independent for the candidate and the ideas. That is encouraging the candidate said given the cynicism that exists in our city politics

True News Awards the Patty Hearst Stockholm syndrome Award to An Article in City and State about Hipsters Losing Power to the Orthodox Jews
A Dart to an article this week in City and State title RosaParks And Redistricting In Williamsburg by Alexis Grenell that blames the Orthodox Jews for blocking the hipsters of Williamsburg from willing a council seat and talking over the world.  Beside the premise of her charges being totally wrong, comparing a bunch of rich kids (check out the rent in Williamsburg), who want power now to a saintly woman Ms. Parks who put her life in danger and worked her who life for civil rights is sick.  The writer Grenell who is a political consultant  has like Patty Hearst invented the fact that the Orthodox Jews put themselves into the 33rd Council District to protect the man who has really block her friends political future. 

The Hipsters of Williamsburg future has been kidnapped by Speaker Quinn who controls redistricitng and her partner Brooklyn Boss Frank Seddio who many of the Hipsters and those who used to be known as reformers have developed a close relationship with abandoning most of what the Brooklyn reform movement stood for.  This Hipster friendship with Seddio who is rolling them for suckers, has not only lead to them losing a district leader position (Vito did that redistricting), a shot at picking up a council seat, but is also threatening to destroy a 40 year old Brooklyn reform movement that brought many qualified people into elective office and to judgeship's.  There are lots of signs that Seddio is working closely with Lopez.  Moving Lopez's house into a district he is looking to escape Albany from is the most obvious example how the two are still working together. There are many more unreform moves that both of them are making against the people of Brooklyn.  Before you throw stones at the Jews blame yourself Ms. Grenell for being out played by you pal Boss Seddio and his pal Lopez.  Also blame City and State for publishing your incorrect article.
