The Morning Read: Friday, September 28, 2007

Hillary Clinton's campaign explained her evolution on torture.

Michael Bloomberg’s company was sued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of woman who say they were discriminated against at the company.

Even though Bloomberg wasn’t there at the time of the alleged discrimination, the suit could complicated Bloomberg's presidential plans. If, of course, he has any.

Eliot Spitzer said of Bloomberg, “He is wrong at every level — dead wrong, factually wrong, legally wrong, morally wrong, ethically wrong,” about changes Spitzer made with respect to driver’s licenses.

State Senator John Sabini of Queens was charged with driving while intoxicated in Albany, and refused to take a breath test to measure his blood-alcohol content.

Dan Doctoroff is in charge of the city for the next few days.

State lawmakers question Spitzer’s pick to run the horse racing franchise.

It’s a two-vote race in the Independence Party primary in Harrison.

Sandy Treadwell, who is running for congress, gets profiled.

Gun violence on Staten Island may stem from a feud between African-Americans and Liberians.

And John Podhoretz says it’s going to be a Hillary Clinton versus Rudy Giuliani kind of race.
