The Daily News had a story this morning alleging “at least three Council members had tickets fixed after they phoned friends at the NYPD.”
When asked about it at an unrelated press conference in Queens, Mayor Bloomberg said: “It is wrong,” and, “the cops shouldn’t do it.”
“It’s really disgraceful if an elected official asked them to do it,” he said.
Bloomberg said he discussed the ticket-fixing scandal during his weekly meeting with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly yesterday. The matter is being investigated by the Bronx District Attorney.
