Quinn Sees Way to Stand Apart

"In an electoral season awash with misbehaving men," mayoral candidate Christine Quinn (D) is "making a subtle plea to New York City voters: I'm not one of them," the New York Times reports.

She "has moved quickly in the past several days to conspicuously distance herself from Anthony D. Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, the celebrity transgressors of the 2013 campaign, wrapping her candidacy in the language of 'maturity,' 'seriousness' and 'truth.'"

"Her political operation, which has long trumpeted her head-cracking, get-things-done legislative style, is now realizing that her appeal also includes what she has not done: hired prostitutes or sent lewd self-portraits to strangers."
