Panel examines Christine Quinn's image

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

The New York Times printed a scathing article about the 'real' Christine Quinn. The Democrat and NYC City Council Speaker is running for mayor.

"But in private, friends and colleagues say, another Ms. Quinn can emerge: controlling, temperamental and surprisingly volatile, with a habit of hair-trigger eruptions of unchecked, face-to-face wrath. She has threatened, repeatedly, to slice off the private parts of those who cross her," reports the NY Times.

"It's not an unusual article. When you are front runner you get the questions is the person behind the scenes as he or she is in front of the camera?" said Basil Smikle.

"They have given her glowing reports. About her baking, summer homes, vacations, but this one was quite different. "There are serious questions that come out of this article. It's not just the question about her personality. It's about how she makes decisions. Is this kind of temperamental display has a role in that," said Zaino. 

Basil Smikle is a political strategist and adjunct professor at Columbia University

Jeanne Zaino is chair of the political science department at Iona College
