INSIDE THE PAPERS

The New York Times

Willie Rashbaum reports: “A Queens district leader and two-time candidate for the City Council surrendered to federal authorities on Wednesday to face corruption charges, including mail-fraud conspiracy and obstruction of justice, stemming from what prosecutors said were campaign-finance improprieties.”

Thomas Kaplan reports: “The state capital has seen its share of drinking over the years. But rarely has the imbibing had such an imprimatur as on Wednesday, when Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo held a summit meeting devoted to alcohol. At one point in the day, the Executive Mansion was transformed into an elaborate tasting room: nearly two dozen breweries, wineries and distilleries offered samples, and visitors were given souvenir corkscrews bearing Mr. Cuomo’s name.”

New York Post

Sally Goldenberg reports: “The sponsor of a controversial bill forcing companies to offer paid sick days is willing to weaken the measure to make it more palatable to the city’s business community.”

David Seifman writes: “His time might be priceless, but lunch with Mayor Bloomberg is up for grabs to anyone who can spare a few thousand bucks.
In what appears to be a first, the mayor has put himself up for bid in an Internet auction to benefit the Humane Society of the US.”

Wall Street Journal

Laura Kusisto reports: “The developer proposing a major expansion atop Chelsea Market has agreed to two key concessions being pushed for by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, whose vote is critical to winning approval for the project in her district, according to multiple people familiar with the negotiations.”

Until tomorrow.
