The quid has been pro-ed. David Yassky, a relatively smart, “progressive” Councilperson representing a largely bourgeois Brooklyn neighborhood, surprised a few people when he supported Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s end-run around term limits. The shiny lure of Mikey Dollars’ enlightened plutocracy was just too great, I guess. After that betrayal of democracy, Yassky unsuccessfully (even with Bloomberg’s endorsement) ran for city Comptroller. Today, he was appointed head of the Taxi and Limousine Commission.
