Quinn stands up. . .

. . . or at least starts to.

WNYC is reporting that New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has expressed her displeasure with the NYPD’s unilateral attempt to restrict public protests. Quinn said that she thought the new rules ran afoul of the First Amendment. (I'm still searching for a link or transcript.) (Update: here’s a link to the tiny WNYC piece. Still can’t find anything about this on Quinn’s site.)

Now, the question is: Will Quinn call for Counsel hearings or legislative action to counter the Bloomberg/Kelly power-grab?
