Alert! Lame duck New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg has decided not to endorse a candidate in the 2013 mayoral race.
BREAKING: Bloomberg just announced he will NOT endorse, AT ALL in NYC mayor's race. Wow. Sources confirm.— Michael Barbaro (@mikiebarb) September 13, 2013
Except: Bloomberg already handed his erstwhile disciple (and ex-front-runner) Christine Quinn a de facto endorsement less than a week ago, in the same interview he accused Quinn’s chief competition, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, of running a “racist” campaign.
She did a very good job for seven and a half years of keeping legislation that never should have made it to the floor, that would have been damaging to the city, from ever getting there. And she deserves a lot of the credit for what’s gone on in the city in the last seven and a half years. I thought the Times was right in their editorials on Lhota and Quinn. I’m very pleased about that.
Stop lying, Mike.
