Christine Quinn tries to get Time Warner to pull attack ad
New York City Mayoral candidate Christine Quinn is trying to get Cablevision and Time Warner Cable to stop airing an ad that attacks Quinn's "political ambition" and ties to the one percent, saying that there is "incorrect information" in the ad.
The ad, which began airing on Monday, was paid for by a group of left-leaning labor groups and other Democratic activists, which call themselves NYC Is Not for Sale 2013. The ad shows Quinn's picture amid a cloud of smoke, and says that “Virtually all of Christine Quinn’s decisions were made in rooms just like this, with her friends in the 1%.”
The ad also faults her for changing term limits, saying "She is always on the wrong side. On living wage."
Quinn's lawyer says she passed the measure, so she can't be on the wrong side. However, she delayed the vote and passed a watered-down version.
