Chris Faraone reports from City Hall that council president Maureen Feeney has cancelled today's planned 3:00 meetingto discuss the Chuck Turner situation. The meeting may be held at some other time in the future.
Feeney was unclear about the reason for the change, at one point seeming to blame the media for overblowing the event, and at another point suggesting that the meeting was cancelled at Turner's request.
Feeney also announced that she will establish an ethics committee to handle this sort of problem in the future. She promised more details on that next week.
She also stood by her decision to strip Turner of his committee assignments, while also arguing that expulsion is not appropriate when the charges are still just allegations.
