Council Members Downplay Indictments

 

David Weprin, the City Council Finance Chairman, emerged from the closed door meeting that members had with Christine Quinn yesterday to discuss the council’s accounting problems and and the indictment of two staffers.

“We know what you know. From what I read here, it looks to me like it was a lone incident,” he said. He declined to discuss how the indictments may affect the budget reforms that Quinn proposed last week (and he supports).

Later, Leroy Comrie, a Quinn ally, emerged from the meeting and was asked if anybody holds Quinn responsible.

“No comment on that,” said Comrie.
