Eric Ulrich, a Republican City Councilman in Queens who, National Review thinks could take on embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner, is out with a public statement explaining his own outspokenness on Twitter.
“First of all, I can say with certitude that my Twitter account, to my knowledge, has not been hacked. With that said, I cannot believe that anyone would use a tragic incident like the one that occurred on Friday to advance their own agenda. To suggest that a bike lane would have prevented this from happening is simply absurd. While I welcome a serious discussion about traffic safety in my district, I will not allow people to use this unfortunate event to begin that conversation.
