Queens It Is. Oops ... We Mean Quinn!

Party Machinery Running Smoothly

Sorry for the delay. Severe technical issues with Blogger today.

Anyway, in case anyone had any lingering doubts as to how this backroom deal would end, all sources now point to a Speaker Christine Quinn.

Several sources say that Kings Manton, Rivera and Lopez are spending the day making calls to their members on behalf of Quinn.

The deal seems to be that Queens (not Quinn) and the Bronx will keep all the chief Chair posts... and that Lopez's block of 5 votes will also be taken care of - if you know what we mean.

Barring a last minute de Blasio or Fidler coup, it's pretty much over!

More to come...

Update: The Politicker is now reporting that Speaker candidate Katz's future also hangs in the balance. Apparently, she tried going around those who brung her???

I'd like to see if Backroomie is going to come out from behind the curtain and reveal themselves. I think it is only fair now that this is all over that they come forward to all.
