Quinn just fine with being a 'pushy broad'
City Council Speaker and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn made the rounds on cable talk shows Wednesday to respond to a New York Times profile that depicted her as brash and fierce behind closed doors at City Hall.
“I’ve always had a big personality,” Quinn told MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts. “I’ve always said I’m a pushy broad and I’ve always said I want to get things done. And sometimes to get things done, you have to be aggressive.”
The story on Monday described Quinn as “controlling, temperamental and surprisingly volatile, with a habit of hair-trigger eruptions of unchecked, face-to-face wrath,” citing friends and family.
“I’m not going to apologize for the fact that I’ve been able to get things done for New York,” she said in an interview on CNN’s “Newsroom.”
