Here's the Mayor Giving a Guy in a Wheelchair a Hard Time
As we mentioned earlier, Bloomberg gave a hard time to guy whose tape recorder went off during the gay-marriage thing at Paterson's office. Turns out the offender was Examiner reporter Michael Harris, who is wheelchair-bound and apparently dropped his recorder and couldn't get to it easily. Azi Paybarah got this footage of the Mayor glaring and holding up the show while the miscreant is attended to (he even threatens to "take everything outside"), followed by his explanation later that "we don't need the distraction" as if Code Pink had started yelling at him or something. "What a dickhead," comments another reporter of our acquaintance. "Michael is a good guy and doesn't deserve this shit from Mayor Midget."
