Openly gay, openly Dem, openly red headed councilwoman poised to nab city's second most influential job
It looks as if NYC will be getting its first openly female, openly gay City Council speaker tomorrow, when Democratic Councilwoman Christine Quinn (pic.) is expected to be nominated to the powerful position. Meaning, of course, that the City Council will now use the terms "baby dyke," "U-haul," and "new season of the 'The L Word'" far more frequently.
The role is considered to be the second most influential in NYC government (behind only mayor Michael Bloomberg). No word on how Quinn plans to use this influence, though we hear the Statue of Liberty is very excited about her new sensible shoes and sleekly tailored power suit.
