Christine Quinn Vs Anthony Weiner

Last night an estimated 400,000 New Yorkers tuned in as the top five Democratic mayoral candidates debated in prime time. The full debate is here, but the press is focusing in on the exchange between Anthony Weiner and Christine Quinn after the moderator invited the candidates to state their opinions on Weiner’s worthiness to be in the race at all. After Quinn denounced Weiner’s record in the US House, Weiner fired back by bringing up Quinn’s slush fund scandal and her support for Bloomberg’s third term. Weiner: “I’ve been honest with the people of this city and that’s not something the Speaker can claim.”
