New York magazine's latest cover story on Christine Quinn, a leading candidate for the New York City mayorship, is worth reading to better understand the sharp, ambitious, lesbian, Democratic city councilwoman who will likely win the city's top political spot later this year. Aside from all that, however, there's also this one part in which the current New York mayor, Michael Bloomberg, tells a bunch of guys at a holiday party to look at some lady's butt.

Here we go (emphasis ours):

Later in the evening, the host interrupted me to point out that the mayor himself had just arrived. Did I want to meet him? Sure. My friend and I followed the host over, shook Bloomberg's hand, and my friend thanked him for his position on gun control. Without even acknowledging the comment, Bloomberg gestured toward a woman in a very tight floor-length gown standing nearby and said, "Look at the ass on her."

Billionaires will be billionaires.
