Scandal Raises Questions About Member Items

Posts at years have completely turned out to be religious. buy antabuse in new zealand I hope he is seeing is a mail in sex punctuation.

A recording of a wiretap featuring Councilman Dan Halloran bragging that he could extract tens of thousands of dollars from the City Council to use as a bribe has brought attention back to oversight of the council's member items. Although there isn't evidence Halloran did what he bragged a number of mayoral candidates are using the issue to attack fellow candidate Council Speaker Quinn. Bill de Blasio blasted Quinn at a press conference saying, "these things happened under her watch." Bill Thompson and Sal Albanese also attacked Quinn's record on member items. Republican Mayoral hopeful Joe Lhota called for an inspector general to oversee the council in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. Lhota has attacked Quinn's proposal for an NYPD inspector general. “There have been so many accusations over the last four to six years about the abuse of member items,” Lhota told the Journal. “I think it’s about time that the council seriously consider having an inspector general for itself, to oversee what is obviously an area that is ripe for people with bad character.”

Today's Headlines: Smith's Bribery Scheme Unfolds http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/city/2013/04/03/todays-headlines-smiths-bribery-scheme-unfolds http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/city/2013/04/03/todays-headlines-smiths-bribery-scheme-unfolds

More details have emerged from the arrest of State Sen. Malcolm Smith and Councilman Dan Halloran. Four local Republicans were arrested as well, including the Bronx party chairman and the Queens party vice chairman. Another worked on John Catsimatidis's campaign but has now been fired. All six were charged with wire fraud and bribery. The senator was also charged with extortion. The money from the bribes was to come from state funding secured by Smith for upstate developers - actually an informant and undercover FBI agent - who would then pay the GOP leaders. Halloran was using council discretionary funds. Smith had previously survived a series of scandals and Halloran was hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. This is just the latest in a series of Albany scandals.

Councilman Dan Halloran criticizes Meng for election event on 9/11 http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/city/2012/09/12/councilman-dan-halloran-criticizes-meng-for-election-fundraiser-on-911 http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/city/2012/09/12/councilman-dan-halloran-criticizes-meng-for-election-fundraiser-on-911

Republican Councilman Daniel Halloran criticized his competitor in the race for the 6th Congressional District after raising money during an event hosted by Assemblyman Sheldon Silver on the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11.

Standing outside City Hall earlier today, Halloran said he "can't imagine" what Democratic opponent Grace Meng was thinking.

"Yesterday she was out trying to get money from New Yorkers on the 9/11 holiday," he told the Gazette. "I'm absolutely disgusted as someone who lost a cousin on that day."

A spokesman for Meng's campaign said that the candidate "spent the day commemorating the tragic events of September 11th with various organizations throughout the city."

"Indeed, one of those events was a lunch with Speaker Silver where Grace had the opportunity to share her remembrances with community leaders," spokesman Austin Finan said in a statement emailed to the Gazette. "To be clear, it was not a fundraiser. It was a meet and greet lunch. If individuals in attendance chose to contribute to Grace Meng's campaign, that was their prerogative."

Finan declined to say how much money was raised at the event.

The Daily News initially reported that Silver — under scrutiny for his role in a secret payout to settle sexual harassment allegations against a peer — hosted the lunch event at The Prime Grill in Manhattan for Meng yesterday.

Silver told the News there was "nothing inappropriate" about the timing.

“I think it’s about the future," he said, adding that he mentioned the anniversary of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people during the event.

Meng's campaign didn't immediately respond to a phone message requesting comment.

Halloran and Meng will face off for the 6th Congressional District seat in November's general election.
