Bully Bill Blow Back

Chalk up "Punishmentgate" as a huge loss for the new Democratic Council and for Councilman Bully Bill Dunne. One day after Democrats could not muster the votes to go through with Dunne's plan to whack the salaries of several city employees, other council members announced the whole
episode was over.

Despite all his tough talk, Dunne couldn't get the rest of his council gang to go along with his controversial and probably illegal plan to whack the salaries. The explosive revelations of Dunne's e-mail exposing the "punishment" plan didn't help, and just as damaging were the new rounds of threats issued by Dunne in interviews after the e-mail became public.
