Are Attacks on Quinn Having An Effect?
Saturday, April 13, 2013
This week in politics, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn came under fire from animal rights activists and some union members, and her poll numbers ticked down. Former Congressman Anthony Weiner emerged to tell all -- and perhaps run for Mayor.

WNYC's Metro Editor Andrea Bernstein sat down with reporters Anna Sale and Brigid Bergin. Find out which one of them thinks Weiner will run for mayor this year, and which one doesn't. And get a peek at what people are saying out on the campaign trail when the mics are turned off.
