A Really Good Reason to Despise Anthony Weiner

Dig down a ways and find this:

"“When I become mayor, you know what I’m going to spend my first year doing?” Mr. Weiner said to Mr. Bloomberg, as tablemates listened. “I’m going to have a bunch of ribbon-cuttings tearing out your [expletive] bike lanes.”"

Up until reading that (belatedly) I really liked him. But the city finally comes up with a really effective way to make it so kids and old people and normal humans can get around the city without fear (whether walking or cycling) and apparently it's The Devil.

I don't think it's going to be that easy to get rid of the bike lanes, however.
