I think the commissioner was a bit off the mark, since — as Lhota’s spokeswoman pointed out — the protocol is for the eventual nominees to get briefings from the commissioner. I doubt he has the time to sit down and explain life to the horde of dopes.
Not surprisingly, Carlos Danger and John Liu (I’ll be elected mayor before either of them ever will, and I’m never gonna run) took this as an opportunity to throw lame punches above their (intellectual) weight classes and take insipid cheap shots at a far better man than a serial creepy perv and a city comptroller under federal investigation for campaign fundraising “irregularities.”
City Controller John Liu dismissed Kelly’s critique, saying: “Commissioner Kelly is doing as all commissioners are doing for Mayor [Michael] Bloomberg, insisting that the current administration knows best about everything. Nobody understands better than I do that our city is still on the front lines in the war against terrorism.”
Really, crook? How do you understand better than anyone else???
