This morning, City Councilman Dennis Gallagher arrived for work at City Hall — the first time he's done so since a woman accused him of raping her at his Queens office.
According to a person at the scene, "Gallagher briefly addressed reporters and said he is innocent, but was advised not to discuss the details of the case and said he has been working in his district office.
"When asked directly if he committed the crime he said, 'Absolutely not. I will be fully vindicated.' "
