When republicans in Congress do anything in the dark of night, it's because they're hiding something. When democrats do things in dark of night - like passing Obama Care, it's because they're doing God's work. Interesting. Congress isn't elementary school - it's time for Dems to stop acting like petulant children that can't get their way, and grow up. I'm disappointed that Paul Tonko participated in this charade, but not at all surprised. He's a party man.

The police didn't come out because they likely knew it was the mayor, and they also likely knew he was intoxicated, so they didn't know how to respond. If it is shown that he was drunk, even from anecdotal evidence, those officers should be fired, as the coverup is worse than the crime. Also, the mayor should be charged, at a minimum, with harassment. The ladies he harassed will no doubt be filing a civil suit. It seems that the "power structure" within the city is trying to cover this, but with the slow drip, drip, drip, they likely can't. If I were the mayor, the public safety commish, and the officers, I would be worried.

You are correct, we are lucky that our mayor has the courage to make hard decisions (like to drive drunk) and take action (like to drive drunk) to protect our garbage. He seems well qualified to do so.

It seems obvious that they are covering something, and don't know what to do. If the Mayor was drunk, which by anecdotal evidence, he was, he needs help. But more troubling is how the police handled it. They covered for him, and let him drive home. That is far more serious.

I doubt he is "truly, truly sorry for that....", his crimes - I think he is truly, truly sorry that he got caught.

Phil Steck's arguments against term limits seem weak to me. His objectivity on this subject is also suspect, given that he and his fellow legislators want to protect their jobs at any cost. I think terms limits are the best antiseptic for the bacteria that is the very definintion of the NYS legislature.

Most police officers believe that they are exempt from laws that the public must abide. Look at the way they drive. While they may be able to get away with poor behavior behind the wheel of a car, until the laws of physics are repealed, they will continue to be a danger to themselves and the pubic.

The higher minimum wage and extended leave proposals are nothing more than Prince Andrew pandering to the voters that increasingly dislike him, and find him increasingly irrelevant. With the advent of Bernie Sanders, it is suddenly popular on the left to act socialist, and that is a train Andrew wants on. It's a losing strategy for New Yorkers and their businesses.

I'm not a Trump supporter, but the "establishment" is fully responsible for Trump's rise. They simply don't listen or care what the electorate thinks or wants. This is THEIR fault!

Leadership doesn't seem to be a skill that Obama exercises very often, That isn't likely to happen.
