How low can Christine Quinn go ?
A proposed plan, if approved, would allow UAE billionaire Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan to take land for free from a Flushing Meadows Corona Park, destroying the park in the process, and may finally expose New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn as a total traitor of LGBT equal rights.
Ever since she became Speaker of the City Council, not once has Christine Quinn ever said no to a zone-busting, community-crushing real estate development. If she approves the Sheikh's land grab, she would be diverting public park resources to a billionaire from a homophobic federation.
The Sheikh's wealth, community activists contend contend, is "only overshadowed by his nation’s trouncing of basic human rights, a laundry list that reportedly includes: a subtly aggressive relationship with Israel; dubious women’s rights under Sharia law; and hostility towards gays and lesbians," The Queens Chronicle reported.
