Quinn Walks Out Of Press Conference (Video)

Christine Quinn Storms Off Of Press Conference In A Show Of Loyal Devotion To Mayor Bloomberg.

The gutted and meaningless living wage bill be damned, New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn was booed after she walked away from a vanity press conference following an innocent joke somebody made by referring to Mayor Michael Bloomberg as "Pharaoh Bloomberg." Speaker Quinn said that she did not support "name-calling," and one is left wondering how she is going to cope with all the name-calling that people are going to do, to describe her sudden and shocking hissy-fit.

The New York Times reported that the Rev. Michael A. Walrond, Jr., the senior pastor of the First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, offered this criticism of Speaker Quinn for defending "Pharaoh" Bloomberg, saying, “What we witnessed is when persons take a stand for political expediency but don’t take a stand for justice.”
