Bloomberg's Q&A: Is Rangel Still Having a Birthday Party?

Tuesday, July 27, 2010 - 07:21 PM


At his Q&A with reporters today, Mayor Bloomberg seemed unsure if the fund-raiser he’s helping throw for Charlie Rangel is still on:

"I don’t know if Charlie Rangel is going to have a fund-raiser. I don’t know what the facts are. We’ll just have to wait and see. Yeah, I had planned to go, but until we see what comes out of this and what happens, I guess, by Thursday, I don’t know what’s going to happen. I can tell you this: Charlie Rangel did a lot for New York City and we shoudn’t forget that. I have no idea whether these charges are true. That’s not my job to find out."

For his part, Rangel did release this video, indicating the party was still on. Then again, that could change.

Bloomberg also rebuffed two questions about Diana Taylor's saying people want her to run for mayor, and he said Washington isn’t doing anything to cut our dependence on oil. Listen to his full Q&A above. Rangel discussion starts at 3:23.
