Christine Quinn's Puppet Show and Political Farce (Term Limits Remix)
Join us on Sunday, October 23, 2011, at 2 pm, outside City Hall, for a protest to mark the third anniversary of the City Council vote that overturned term limits. www.facebook.com Back on this day in 2008, the New York City Council voted to change the term limits law, thereby allowing Mayor Michael Bloomberg to seek re-election. The action by the City Council, lead by Speaker Christine Quinn, undid the term limits approved by New York City voters, who had previously passed two referendums that had restricted the service of elected politicians to a limit of two four-year terms. cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com Copyright notice : Fair use of an excerpt of "Puppet On A String" by Sandie Shaw is claimed under applicable US Copyright laws. The excerpt of the song was transformed into a political satire of the puppet-master relationship between New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and, as such, the appropriate use of the excerpt is different from the original song. This use is intended as a video version of an old-fashioned editorial cartoon.
