Christine Quinn Still Has Her Hands In The Slush Fund Cookie Jar

In 2008, New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn announced that all groups petitioning for slush funds would need to submit their solicitations through the Request for Proposal (RFP) process. At the end of 2010, Speaker Quinn was still doling out slush funds, and she alone had the final say.

Speaker Christine Quinn announced on April 11, 2008, that all groups that want money from the approximately $20 million speaker's discretionary slush fund will have to go through the Request for Proposal (RFP) process.

Over two and a half years after she got caught with her ''hands in the cookie jar,'' The New York Times reported that Speaker Quinn still had the ''final say'' in how the slush funds are distributed.
