Bloomquinn Boots Viola

Last week, New York City Hall became a battle ground of Barron vs. Quinn. City Councilman Charles Barron and Christine Quinn are in a running feud regarding the firing of Barron aide, Viola Plummer. Barron has vowed to keep Plummer on his staff
while Quinn upholds her "right" to fire city employees.

The power struggle escalated last week when Quinn ordered Plummer's removal from a section of City Council chambers reserved for staff only. Now granted, Christine won this round. However, it is only a matter of time before Charlie returns for yet another confrontation. Christine wants to be Mayor and Charles B. wants to be king. As Al Sharpton continues to ease into the main stream, Barron seeks to fill the void of grassroots leadership. Barron's fiery rhetoric is an eerie reminder an era gone by. A time when the political divide between Black and White was well defined. Hopefully this situation will resolve itself before we are back to the future. Watch the fireworks at:
