Make a pledge today to support Roots of Betrayal : The Ethics of Christine Quinn on Kickstarter.
If you live in New York City, join me on Saturday, August 4, from 4 - 6 p.m., on 7th Avenue South and Greenwich Avenue, where I will be passing out flyers and answering questions about this book.
Roots of Betrayal : The Ethics of Christine Quinn will take a ''behind the scenes'' look at New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn's politics and ethics. In 2013, Speaker Quinn is expected to publish her memoirs as a slick public relations stunt in her campaign to be mayor of New York City. Roots of Betrayal will recount the stories that Speaker Quinn will leave out of her “fairytale” autobiography – such as the controversial overturning of term limits, the way that Quinn uses discretionary budgetary allocations to subvert the democratic process in the City Council, and the many examples of how Quinn has betrayed progressive ideals, her constituents, and even the LGBT community.

His activism and blogs have been covered by The New York Times, The Advocate, The New York Daily News, The Wall Street Journal, The Telegraph, and Têtu.
