INSIDE THE PAPERS
The New York Times
Thomas Kaplan notes: “New York’s Democratic governor, Andrew M. Cuomo, offered an emphatic endorsement on Wednesday to an upstate Republican state senator who lost a primary this month that became a referendum on the senator’s vote in favor of same-sex marriage.”
Matt Flegenheimer looks at the rise of traffic fatalities in New York City.
Patrick McGeehan writes about a dispute over the accuracy of the federal unemployment numbers.
New York Post
Ford & Goldenberg report: “Critics yesterday blasted Mayor Bloomberg for getting on his high horse in a relentless campaign to control what New Yorkers eat and drink to fight obesity — while jacking up the fees at city recreation centers where they go to work off those calories.”
Chuck Bennett writes: “The powerful state teachers union donated nearly $12,000 to state Sen. Shirley Huntley’s failed re-election campaign after she was arrested for fraud, records released yesterday show. Huntley was indicted on Aug. 27 for allegedly falsifying documents to conceal the theft by her niece and a Senate aide of a $30,000 state grant from their sham charity.”
Sally Goldenberg notes: “Sixty-seven top city employees thumbed their noses at filing required personal-wealth forms this year — including a former assistant commissioner in the Department of Housing Preservation and Development who pleaded guilty to accepting $2.5 million in bribes, The Post has learned.”
Carl Campanile reports: “Rep. Bob Turner said yesterday he’s up for a new challenge — becoming the next leader of the divided Queens Republican Party. GOP insiders are touting Turner, who won Anthony Weiner’s old congressional seat on Democratic turf last year, as the man with the credibility and integrity to fuse the party’s warring factions. Phil Ragusa is the current GOP chairman.”
Schram & Antenucci write: “A second Staten Island teen was charged with criminal mischief after confessing to throwing rocks through windows at Rep. Michael Grimm’s campaign headquarters, authorities said yesterday.”
Wall Street Journal
Ted Mann reports: “The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will begin an internal debate on its advertising policies in earnest on Thursday, just more than two months after its refusal of an anti-Muslim ad campaign was ruled to have violated the First Amendment of the Constitution.”
