Mike Bloomberg, Stalking Proponent

cityfile · 06/29/09 10:14AM

Mayor Bloomberg has come up with a great way to break the stalemate in Albany. He (jokingly?) suggested this morning that senators' personal phone numbers and addresses be made public so residents of New York can call them up three o'clock in the morning and give them a piece of their minds. Cute, but just wait until someone actually takes Bloomberg's advice to heart and wakes up Sen. Kevin Parker in the middle of the night. This could really get ugly. [NYDN]

New York's Angriest State Senator

Has the stalemate in Albany been boring you to tears? Allow Kevin Parker to liven things up. The Democratic state senator called Gov. David Paterson a "coke-snorting, staff-banging governor" today after Paterson ordered the Senate to continue working out their differences, rather than go home for the weekend. Parker has had his anger management issues in the past: He's the same guy who attacked a Post photographer outside his home in Brooklyn back in May. But you won't find much of Parker's bitterness on his website. The most recent story? "Senator Parker Donates Prom Dresses To High School Teens At Annual Prom Dress Giveaway." [NYDN]
