City Council Speaker Christine Quinn laughed off suggestions Thursday that she had purposely scheduled a press conference to rain on an opponent’s endorsement parade–the second time she’s been accused of using the tactic in recent months.
“We should be so well-organized to figure everything out on that level!” said Ms. Quinn, bursting into awkward, raucous laughter when Politicker asked about the timing of her Thursday press conference unveiling a new mobile app for her campaign.
(Her cackle is a particularly well-known response mechanism in city politics.)
Most New Yorkers have given little thought to this fall’s mayoral race. But City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the early front-runner, thinks they’ll nonetheless be interested in a new campaign app.
Per her campaign, the “IDEAS App,” announced Thursday, “will give New Yorkers easy access” to Ms. Quinn’s “policy proposals, ideas for New York, and help stay connected with campaign.”
