INSIDE THE PAPERS
The New York Times
Mosi Secret reports: “Pedro Espada Jr., a former legislator who rose to the heights of New York State government before later being convicted of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from a nonprofit health care network, is expected to plead guilty on Friday to the remaining charges against him, signaling an end to a case that has stretched on for years.”
Michael Grynbaum writes: “Count at least one New Yorker who does not want to talk about the 2013 mayor’s race — Michael R. Bloomberg.”
Matt Flegenheimer looks at proposed legislation that would make motorcycle parking free.
New York Post
Mitchel Maddux writes: “The federal investigation into the campaign finances of Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm hit a snag yesterday when an influential rabbi who is a key cooperator in the probe was detained in Israel on unrelated troubles of his own.”
Erik Kriss reports: “Gov. Cuomo is telling state legislative candidates who oppose his property-tax cap to just stay home.”
Bruce Golding writes: “Three Orthodox rabbis want to cut the city’s new circumcision law down to size. A lawsuit filed yesterday in Manhattan federal court says the Health Department cannot legally regulate a controversial Jewish ritual that involves sucking blood from a newborn’s freshly snipped penis.”
Dave Seifman reports: “A $350,000 gift horse offered by Mayor Bloomberg was rejected yesterday by the city’s largest pension system. The mayor offered to hire a consultant out of his own budget to conduct a study of how to cut the $120 million in administrative expenses run up each year by the five pension funds.”
Seifman also writes: “Mayor Bloomberg said yesterday that he’d be “shocked” if Rudy Giuliani wanted to return for another stint as mayor. He was responding to a report by The Post’s Cindy Adams about rumors of a possible Rudy Part II.”
New York Daily News
Erin Durkin reports: “Coming soon for bike-riding delivery guys: Driver’s ed. Mandatory safety classes for commercial cyclists are one of a series of measures approved by the City Council on Thursday that aim to crack down on kamikaze commercial cyclists who are notorious for mowing down pedestrians, blowing red lights and riding the wrong way down busy city streets.”
