City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is getting sick of all the talk of second chances.
“You know there’s a been a lot of discussion about second chances in this race from former Congressman [Anthony] Weiner and the former governor [Eliot Spitzer],” said Ms. Quinn during an interview this morning on CNN with New Day’s Kate Bolduan.
Instead, she pointed to the fact that, if elected, she would become the city’s first female and first openly gay mayor.
Mayoral front-runner Christine Quinn refused to criticize President Obama over reports that the federal government has engaged in widespread monitoring of Americans’ Internet activity and telephone calls–arguing that surveillance is crucial to the city’s safety.
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn downplayed the challenge posed by Anthony Weiner in an interview last night with CNN’s Piers Morgan, who appeared to be having a rollicking time making fun of Mr. Weiner’s name.
Ms. Quinn, who is currently making the rounds promoting her new memoir, has so far avoided weighing in on the impact of Mr. Weiner’s late jump into the race. But Mr. Morgan managed to break through her usually well-rehearsed rebuttals–for a moment, at least.
