Geraldine Ferraro has past away -- She made a shocking mistake revealed in “City for Sale” calling the NYPD liars when in fact the NYPD got it right on Manes wounds being self-inflicted
Yikes! I am reading “City For Sale” by Jack Newfield & Wayne Barrett and when Queens Borough president Manes know he is going to be busted for major theft, kick backs he stabs himself and slits his wrists. He tells the NYPD he was attacked. The NYPD investigates and states the wounds are self inflicted. Geraldine Ferraro being loyal stood up for Manes and said the NYPD was lying. The NYPD was in fact correct. This book is shocking and Queens politicos are a big part of this story including Jimmy Breslin’s coverage. Koch attacked Breslin as well as Manes but before the story broke he visited Manes in the hospital, kissed him and declared his support.
