INSIDE THE PAPERS
The New York Times
Wendy Ruderman hangs out with Kerry Kennedy at her home in Mount Kisco.
Columnist Michael Powell looks at powerbroker Stanley Schlein – and his connection to a vacant lot in the South Bronx.
Alison Leigh Cowan reports on a business partner of Rep. Michael Grimm – and his questionable connections.
New York Post
Dave Seifman reports: “Appointing an inspector general to oversee the NYPD is a recipe for disaster, Mayor Bloomberg warned yesterday. ‘I think if you want to bring crime back, let’s go politicize control of the Police Department,’ the mayor said, responding to a reporter’s question about a new City Council bill requiring an IG for cops getting a hearing tomorrow.”
Seifman also notes: “Raising local taxes on the rich is about the dumbest policy there is, Mayor Bloomberg said yesterday in a direct attack on Public Advocate Bill de Blasio.”
Sally Goldenberg writes: “A bill for a $177 bagel isn’t the only outrageous expense claimed by former City Councilman Larry Seabrook. The Bronx Democrat — whose doctored bagel receipt was part of a federal corruption case that ended with his conviction in July — plopped down $4,004 in taxpayer money on three new computers as he was facing trial, according to council spending records obtained by The Post.”
New York Daily News
Durkin & Blain report: “Gov. Cuomo threw his political clout Monday behind a Queens state senator who is facing a tough reelection battle after voting in favor of legalizing gay marriage. Cuomo endorsed Democratic Sen. Joe Addabbo for re-election, praising the lawmaker for his “courageous” decision to support gay marriage in 2011 after voting against it in 2009.”
Wall Street Journal
Michael Howard Saul notes: “Mayoral hopefuls Christine Quinn and Bill Thompson said they no longer support their 2009 proposals to increase city income taxes on the wealthy, separating them from the other major Democrats considering the 2013 mayor's race.”
