“Inside City Hall,” an hour-long look at New York politics, can be seen on NY1 News weekdays at 7 and 10 p.m.

On last night’s “Inside City Hall”, the four members of our Consultants Corner discussed yesterday’s sentencing of political operative John Haggerty.

Watch a clip of the segment above.

Tonight’s guests include: Our NY1 Wise Guys with guest Mark Green and a special panel to mark the 25th anniversary of the deadly racial attack in Howard Beach.

INSIDE THE PAPERS

The New York Times

Rashbaum & Weiser report: “State Senator Carl Kruger was expected to plead guilty on Tuesday to federal corruption charges that he accepted at least $1 million in bribes to finance a lavish lifestyle, including a large home in Mill Basin, Brooklyn, where he lived with two gynecologist brothers and their mother, according to several people briefed on the case.”

Noah Rosenberg writes: “A Republican political consultant who was convicted of stealing campaign funds from Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg admitted his guilt at his sentencing hearing on Monday, but could not avoid a prison sentence.”

Richard Perez-Pena reports: “The donor whose $350 million gift will be critical in building Cornell University’s new high-tech graduate school on Roosevelt Island is Atlantic Philanthropies, whose founder, Charles F. Feeney, is a Cornell alumnus who made billions of dollars through the Duty Free Shoppers Group.”

Matt Flegenheimer writes about how Cornell’s new campus could change Roosevelt Island.

“Gotham” columnist Michael Powell contemplates the Living Wage Bill.

New York Post

Chuck Bennett writes: “City Comptroller John Liu’s office is taking a second look at the millions of dollars’ worth of legal work it doled out to state Sen. Jeff Klein’s firm to help the city fight lawsuits. The move follows a report in yesterday’s Post that Klein, a Bronx Democrat, also had a financial interest in another law firm that specialized in suing the city.”

Erik Kriss notes: “Mayor Bloomberg yesterday picked up an unlikely ally in his fight to expand street-hail cab service to the outer boroughs — the Rev. Al Sharpton.”

New York Daily News

Pete Donohue writes: “Last December's blizzard and the transit snafus that followed weren’t as bad as you remember them. They were worse.”

Donohue notes: “Up to 1,000 welfare recipients will scrub subway stations for their benefits under a cost-cutting measure in the MTA’s 2012 budget, approved Monday by the agency’s Finance Committee.”

Until tomorrow.
