WSJ : Does Christine Quinn Use NYPD To Thwart Protesters ?

The Wall Street Journal : "Protesters Say Quinn Used NYPD to Thwart Them"

Earlier today, Michael Howard Saul from The Wall Street Journal reported that ... "Louis Flores, who describes himself as an activist and a blogger, filed a complaint with the Civilian Complaint Review Board accusing a police officer of pushing him during a protest outside a fundraiser for Quinn in Chelsea on Wednesday."

Both Mr. Flores and the protest organizer, Donny Moss, "accused the speaker of using taxpayer-paid employees to prevent them from taking photos of her entering and leaving the fundraiser. Quinn, a Manhattan Democrat, is preparing a campaign to run for mayor next year," Mr. Saul reported.

According to The Wall Street Journal report, "A spokesman for Quinn, Jamie McShane, declined to comment."

"The NYPD did not immediately respond to a request for comment," Mr. Saul added.
