Veteran New York Post gossip columnist Cindy Adams has written quite a bit on New York City politics over the years, and last night, NY1’s Inside City Hall invited her on to share her thoughts on next year’s mayoral race, which she did in her own inimitable way.

Ms. Adams was particularly displeased with Comptroller John Liu’s prospective candidacy. Mr. Liu, who majored in Mathematical Physics and went on to work at PricewaterhouseCoopers, is usually criticized for the fundraising scandal surrounding his campaign, but Ms. Adams chose to insult his intelligence.

“He’s an imbiot (sic). Imbecile. He’s an idiot. So we have to forget him because even he forgets him,” she explained.

Looks like Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the other skeptics were right–Rudy Giuliani says he has no plans to run for mayor again. We reached out to Mr. Giuliani’s office this morning after New York Post columnist Cindy Adams described “an unconfirmed—also, so far undenied—rumor” the former mayor had his eye on his old job that she said was “swirling around martinis faster than the olive.” Perhaps the people swirling that rumor might want to put down their martinis, because a spokeswoman from Mr. Giuliani’s office just called Politicker to shoot it down.

“He’s not running for mayor,” she said unequivocally. Continue reading “Spokeswoman For Rudy Giuliani Says He’s ‘Not Running For Mayor’ Again”

Back in December, New York Post columnist Cindy Adams said State Senator Liz Krueger was “raising funds for a mayoral run,” but Ms. Krueger says she’s not prepping a City Hall bid.

“I have no idea where that came from,” Ms. Krueger told Politicker. “I know Cindy Adams mentioned in her column that she had heard a rumor I was running for mayor. I have had no fundraiser for running for mayor. I have not announced im running for mayor.” Continue reading “Liz Krueger On Mayoral Fundraising Rumor: ‘I Have No Idea Where That Came From’”

From Cindy Adams:

Two black SUVS arrived. The lead car carried shirtsleeved Mayor Bloomberg, who donned his jacket immediately. “What kind of food we having?” asked our city’s emperor. “Hamburgers? I love hamburgers. Melon’s has good ones.”

Discussing hamburgers brought up hot dogs, which brought up Weiner. Said our liege: “Notice, nobody’s defended Anthony. Like Spitzer, he had no friends. Weiner should have owned up right away. But, listen, the public quickly forgets. Half don’t even remember Monica Lewinsky. In Sao Paolo recently, they’d forgotten Goldman Sachs’ chairman Lloyd Blankfein, who contributed to our financial crisis.

“I think some of these people do things like that just because they’re bored.”

So why don’t they just take up Scrabble?

“I don’t know. I don’t play Scrabble,” replied our sovereign, who then decided enough of me and walked away.
