Gov. Cuomo is trying to find a credible primary opponent to defeat turncoat state Sen. Simcha Felder, the
Brooklyn Democrat who caucuses with
Republicans, sources said Tuesday.
Democrats outnumber Republicans
32 to 31 in the Senate, but Republicans maintain control because Felder
(right) won’t abandon his alliance
with the GOP.
Felder would be tough to beat in the
heavily-Orthodox 17th Senate District
in south Brooklyn, which covers Bor-
ough Park, Midwood, Kensington,
Sunset Park and Bensonhurst.
But a source close to Cuomo said,
“The governor is deeply involved in
recruiting Senate candidates” and is
“personally involved in trying to determine who the best challenger
would be.”
Democratic Party officials are also
“committed to putting the full weight
of the party behind a primary challenge” to Felder, according to Geoff
Berman, executive director of the
state Democratic Committee.
Eight other dissident Democrats
aligned with Republicans, who
were members of the Independent
Democratic Caucus, recently rere­
united with mainline Democrats.
Last week, Cuomo released a pubpub­
lic letter urging Felder, too, to return
to the fold. But Felder said Tuesday
he’s had no contact with the governor
since then and has no knowlknowl­
edge of any effort to unseat
him. Carl Campanile
Carranza’s vague vow

support every

By KIRSTAN CONLEY
and YOAV GONEN
Schools Chancellor Richard
Carranza on Tuesday offered only
vague assurances to Upper West
Side parents concerned about
their high-performing kids being
sent to failing middle schools
amid a diversification effort by the
Department of Education.
The proposal calls for giving
students who score below grade
level priority access to 25 percent
of seats at each of the district’s 18
middle schools starting with next
year’s application process.
“I don’t understand what assurances I can give except we’re going
to work every single day to make
sure every student in our system
gets the support and the resources
they need to be successful,” Carranza said during a stop in Albany to
meet with leaders of the Assembly
and Senate Education committees.
The new chancellor made waves
on Friday when he retweeted a
story about a public meeting last
week on the diversification pro-
We’re going to work
. . . to make sure every
student . . . gets the
support and the
resources they need

— Schools Chancellor
—
Richard Carranza
posal with a headline that painted
some of the parents who opposed
the measure as racist.
“Wealthy white Manhattan parents angrily rant against plan to
bring more black kids to their
schools,” the RawStory.com Web
headline said.
Carranza has since apologized
for the bluntness of the language,
but hasn’t backed down.
“I am who I am. I grew up in this
skin,” Carranza, who is MexicanAmerican, said Tuesday. “I’m not going to shy away from the issue that
the Supreme Court settled this case.”
Upper West Side dad Jason
Abramson, who attended the raucous meeting, said he has been
frustrated with the mischaracterization of parents’ motives by Carranza and some media outlets.
Abramson said the main issue is
how few high-quality middle
schools there are in the district
and the continued lack of assurance by the DOE that schools will
get the resources they need to
deal with an influx of academically struggling kids.
“The concern is not that kids with
different ethnicities are going to be
schooled with our [so-called] ‘rich
white kids,’ ” Abramson said.
“Rather, we want to make sure
our kids are not forced into failing
schools as a byproduct of the
DOE’s push to increase diversity.”
City Council Speaker Corey
Johnson on Tuesday enthusiastically supported Carranza.
“I am proud of the chancellor for
talking about race in a stark way,”
Johnson said on WNYC radio.
“We do have a segregated school
system . . . one of the most segregated school systems in the entire
United States of America. I think
it’s important to call it what it is.”

Panel: Blas must bare e-mails Corey: I made Uber error
An appeals-court panel on
Tuesday unanimously ordered the de Blasio administration to release communications between the Mayor’s
Office and a consultant that
City Hall has been trying to
hide for three years.
The ruling upholds a
March 2017 state Supreme
Court decision dismissing
City Hall’s claim that communications with BerlinRosen are confidential.
“Based on the substantial
body of law . . . respondents
had no reasonable basis to
withhold the documents,”
wrote Justice Anil Singh.
The city must pay the le-
gal fees of plaintiffs The
Post and NY1, the court said.
Law Department officials
wouldn’t say if they’ll appeal
and Mayor de Blasio dodged
questions about the case at
an event in Newark.
BerlinRosen declined to
comment.

City Council Speaker
Corey Johnson on Tuesday
said he made a mistake by
not supporting Mayor
de Blasio’s attempt to cap
the number of for-hire vehicles roaming the streets in
2015, when the council
failed to vote on legislation
pushed by City Hall.
The mayor wanted a cap
on new permits issued to
Uber and other app-based
car services, but backed
down the day before a
scheduled council vote in
the face of industry pressure.
“In hindsight, I think we
should have done more,”
Johnson said on WNYC

New Yorkers will enjoy
two days of perfect weather
on Wednesday and Thursday after pushing through
one of the coldest Aprils on
record.
“We’re turning the page
on the calendar and coming
to the days that everybody
wants,” said AccuWeather
meteorologist Bob Larsen.
The Big Apple is expected
to hit 89 degrees on
Wednesday and go up to 91
degrees the day after — but
Larsen said it won’t feel too
hot and sticky because the
humidity is expected to be
low.
Last month was one of the
coldest Aprils in the past
two decades, with an average temperature of 49.5 degrees, 3.6 degrees lower
than usual, Larsen said.
“April was nasty,” she said.
“It was the coldest on record since 2000.”
Cold-weary New Yorkers
gave a collective cheer.
“It’s about time, I say,”
grinned Harlem resident
Maddie Seagle, 25, who sat
on a blanket Tuesday afternoon in St. Nicholas Park.

He’s one sick puppy.
A Colombian drug trafficker
used his veterinary skills to crucru­
elly sew heroin into the stomstom­
achs of live Labrador pups to turn
them into drug mules, prosecuprosecu­
tors said as he was hauled into
Brooklyn federal court Tuesday.
Andres Lopez Elorez, 38,
pleaded not guilty to conspiring to
import and distribute heroin, a
day after he was extradited to the
United States from Spain.
“Elorez is not only a drug traftraf­
ficker, he also betrayed a veteriveteri­
narian’s pledge to prevent animal
suffering when he used his surgisurgi­
cal skills in a cruel scheme to
smuggle heroin in the abdomens
of puppies,” US Attorney Richard
Donoghue said after the brief
court appearance.
“Dogs are man’s best friend and,
as the defendant is about to learn,
we are drug dealers’ worst enemy.”
Back in 2004 and 2005, Elorez
was part of a twisted trafficking
ring that implanted packets of liquid heroin into the bellies of Labs
and other breeds and then sent
them on commercial flights to the
Big Apple, authorities say.
Once the pooches arrived, the
packets were surgically removed
from the canine couriers — who
died in the process, authorities
say.
“Over time, drug organizations’
unquenchable thirst for profit
leads them to do unthinkable
crimes like using innocent puppies for drug concealment,” said
Drug Enforcement Administration
Special Agent in Charge James
Hunt.
Ten puppies — six with a total of
6.6 pounds of drugs stuffed inside
them — were rescued during a
2005 raid on a farm in Colombia,
the DEA said at the time.
Three of the rescued dogs later
died of infections.
OH, DOC,
OH,
DOC, YOU
YOU
DIRTY DOG!
Raids in Colombia, New York,
Florida and North Carolina at the
time resulted in more than 30 arrests and the seizure of more than
50 pounds of heroin — a drug also
known as “horse” or “white
horse.”
But Elorez evaded capture and
spent the next decade on the lam.
He was finally busted in Spain in
2015 and had been fighting extradition in the European Court of
Human Rights ever since.
Elorez’s public defender on
Tuesday said his client has “psychiatric issues,” including depression, and “kidney problems.”
A visibly upset Elorez gestured
wildly with his hands to his interpreter.
“He says he needs surgery and
has problems with his urethra,” his
attorney Mitchell Dinnerstein
said. “I think a lot of it is stress-related.”
He also has “a loving wife and
two children” — and isn’t actually
a vet, the attorney later claimed.
“He is not a trained vet,” Dinnerstein told The Post.
Elorez was held without bail.
A status conference will be held
on June 5, where both parties say
they will explore a plea as a potential resolution.
If convicted, Elorez faces at least
10 years and as much as life behind bars.

AFTERMATH: Officer
AFTERMATH:
Officer
Arcangelo Liberatore and
Natalia Petrellese nurse their
wounds after he saved her from
this coyote in Westchester. It
was shot dead by cops.
By NATALIE O’NEILL
The coyote that bit a 5-year-old
girl at a Westchester County
playground before it was tackled
by a brave cop had rabies, health
officials said Tuesday.
“We got results back — and it
did test positive for rabies,” said
Westchester County Communications Director Catherine Cioffi.
The hurt child, Natalia King-Petrellese, had been playing at James
Carroll Park in Mount Pleasant
with her mom and brother Sunday afternoon when the animal
dashed toward them and
chomped down on her left arm.
The girl was saved from the
animal by off-duty Irvington cop
Arcangelo Liberatore, who wrestled the beast to the ground and
held it until police arrived and
fatally shot it.
But the sick coyote left the girl
with a bite wound, her mom with
a nip and the officer with a
scrape that came in contact with
the animal’s saliva.
The injuries could pass the fatal disease to the trio — but they
all got preventative rabies shots
within six hours after the attack
and will now get three more,
over a two-week period, to prevent contracting the virus, according to the cop and the girl’s
mother, Kasey King-Petrellese.
The mom said health officials
assured her they would all be fine.
“As a mother, you’re always
concerned about things like this,”
said King-Petrellese, 36. “But the
nurse tells us we won’t develop
Park-attack
coyote rabid
rabies if we get the rest of the
shots, so that’s a good thing.”
Natalia was back at school
Tuesday and doing great, her
mom added.
“She’s been a champ,” King-Petrellese said. “She hasn’t complained once about pain, even
when she got the shot. She is beyond a trouper.”
Liberatore shared that he was
faring well, too.
“My wife is a nervous wreck —
but I’m not concerned about it,’’
the officer said. “I have a lot of
faith in the health system. The
nurse I spoke to seems confident
about [the procedure].”
Caren Halbfinger, a spokeswoman for the Westchester
County Department of Health,
said anyone bitten by a coyote
should see a doctor immediately.
“You do want get a shot quickly
if you’re bitten,” she said, noting
there’s no “exact window” of time
before preventative shots are ineffective. “But once you’ve been
treated, the treatment works.”
Animals with rabies can be aggressive, suffer from delirium
and secrete large amounts of the
virus in their saliva, which they
can pass to humans through
bites and scratches.
Health Commissioner Sherlita
Amler warned, “If a coyote approaches, make noise and try to
avoid it.”
Huge US up-‘tick’ in diseases caused by insect bites
Well, this bites!
The number of Americans sickened by bites from infected mosquitoes, ticks or fleas tripled from
2004 to 2016 — a result of rising
global temperatures and increased international travel, US
health officials said Tuesday.
More than 642,000 cases of
illnes were reported during the 13
years studied in the Vital Signs report by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Some 96,075 diseases caused by
such bites were reported in 2016,
up from 27,388 in 2004, according
to the CDC. Among them were
cases of Lyme disease, Rocky
Mountain spotted fever and West
Nile virus.
Infections in 2016 skyrocketed
73 percent from 2015, reflecting
the emergence of the mosquitoborne Zika virus.
Zika was the most common disease transmitted by ticks, mosquitoes and fleas reported in 2016,
with 41,680 cases.
The study was published in the
CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality
Weekly Report.

for Nixon
Cynthia Nixon has hired a new

unseat Gov. Cuomo.
The former “Sex and the City”
actress let go of Nicole Aro in favor of Hayley Prim of Hilltop
Public Solutions.
Prim worked for Bill de Blasio’s
2013 campaign, and it’s been reported that the mayor could be
behind Nixon’s challenge to
Cuomo, his bitter enemy.
Nixon’s campaign didn’t give a
reason for the change just weeks
into her candidacy, but spokeswoman Sarah Ford put out a
statement saying, “The kickoff to
the campaign was a huge success
as we introduced voters to Cynthia’s progressive agenda, leading to massive gains in the polls.
“As we now bolster or operation for the next phase, we’re
proud to be attracting top talent
to lead us to the next goal: ending Andrew Cuomo’s corrupt
and centrist reign, and finally
bringing New York a true progressive leader.”

‘100+ Uber
sex crimes’
More than 100 Uber drivers nationwide have been accused of
sexually assaulting or abusing their
passengers over the last four years.
The alarming report — based on
a CNN review of police and court
records from 20 major US cities
— found that at least 103 drivers
have either been arrested, are
wanted or are named in civil suits
for sexually attacking riders. Of
these, 31 drivers have been convicted of crimes including rape,
false imprisonment and forcible
touching, the audit found.
“How many people is it going to
take to get assaulted before something is done?” one victim asked
the news network.
Uber told CNN that it plans to
increase the frequency of driver
background checks and establish
within the company’s app a
“safety center” that riders can use
to share trip details with emergency contacts, and call 911 with
the press of a button. Aaron Feis

Doc testifies at his retrial.
The government’s key

that Sheldon Silver had him

Dr. Robert Taub said in
Manhattan federal court
that he used the phrase “bikur cholim” — a Jewish
commandment to visit and
extend aid to the sick — to
warn Silver in 2014 that the
feds were closing in.
“I mentioned it to let him
know that I had been rendered ill . . . rendered sick
by a visitation,” Taub, a former Columbia University
cancer doctor, said of the
phone call.
Silver, 74, is being re-tried
on charges that he sold his
office in exchange for kickbacks.
Taub said he referred mesothelioma patients to Silver’s “of counsel” law firm
in exchange for state grants
for Taub’s research.

By LORENA MONGELLI
and NATALIE O’NEILL
A Long Island baker moonlighting as a bandit dodged cops for
weeks by wearing a surgical mask
during a string of robberies — but
he couldn’t fool dear ol’ Mom, authorities said Tuesday.
Marchell Rountree, 50, a Bellport resident known as “the
Cookie Man,’’ turned himself in to
cops after a two-month crime
spree when his 88-year-old
mother recognized him from surveillance video of a gas-station
robbery that was aired on local
TV news and convinced him to
surrender, officials said.
“Lots of people saw my picture,
but a mother knows her child,”
Rountree shrugged to cops, according to officials from the Suf-
folk County District Attorney’s
Office.
Rountree, who lives with his
mother, was charged with five
counts of first-degree robbery.
He is accused of donning the
surgical mask and gloves and using a gun to rob five businesses —
including 7-Elevens and gas stations — in East Patchogue,
Yaphank and Holbrook.
Rountree’s alleged crime spree
began Feb. 17, when police say he
robbed a 7-Eleven in East Patchogue. He is also accused of holding up a Speedway gas station in
Yaphank on Feb. 25, along with a 7Eleven in East Patchogue on April
21, an East Patchogue Valero gas
station on April 24 and a 7-Eleven
in Holbrook on Saturday.
On Saturday, police released a
surveillance image of Rountree —
with only his eyes exposed between the white mask and the
hood of a blue sweat shirt — allegedly robbing the gas station.
Rountree’s mom recognized her
son while watching the news and
eventually talked him in to doing
the right thing, authorities said.
Rountree surrendered to Suffolk
police Monday, two days later.
His landlord, John McGarity,
said the alleged crook-with-a-conscience works the night shift at a
bakery and moved in with his
mom after his father died a few
years ago.
“He’s a very nice person. He
works for a bakery. I always call
him the Cookie Man,” McGarity
said.
“He’s always polite, a nice guy.
They’re straight-up people. I’ve
never had any trouble with them.
The son came to live with her after her husband passed away a few
years ago because she was alone.”
Rountree is being held in lieu of
$125,000 cash bail or $250,000
bond.
“This individual turned himself
in to police after his mother recognized him in surveillance photos used in media reports of the
robberies,” Suffolk DA Tim Sini
said in a statement.
“He has now been arrested and
faces prosecution thanks to
proper surveillance measures employed by these businesses, the information issued by the Suffolk
County Police Department and
Suffolk County Crime Stoppers,
and assistance by the local media
in alerting residents to this crime
spree.”

Trump’s
‘muscle’
raided
ex-doc
President Trump’s bodyguard, a company lawyer and
a third man showed up at the
Upper East Side office of his
former doctor and confiscated the president’s medical
records, according to a report Tuesday.
Dr. Harold Bornstein said
the “raid” took place two
days after he disclosed that
he had prescribed the hairgrowth drug Propecia for the
intricately coiffed commander in chief, NBC News
reported.
Bornstein told the network
he felt “raped, frightened and
sad” when Keith Schiller,
then Trump’s longtime bodyguard, Trump Organization
lawyer Alan Garten and an
unidentified “large man”
came to his Park Avenue
office to collect the president’s records on Feb. 3, 2017.
At the time, Schiller was
the director of White House
Oval Office operations.
“They must have been here
for 25 or 30 minutes. It
created a lot of chaos,” Bornstein said.
Bornstein also said the trio
ordered him to take down a
framed, 8-by-10 photo of
himself and Trump that had
been hanging on the wall in
the waiting room.
Bornstein told NBC the
men did not give him a form
authorizing the release of the
records and signed by the
president — known as a
HIPAA (Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act) release — a violation
of federal patient-privacy law.
The White House dismissed the report, calling the
seizure of the president’s
records “standard operating
procedure.”
Bornstein also said Tuesday that Trump told him to
write the 2015 letter declaring that The Donald would
be the healthiest person
“ever elected to the presidency.”
“He dictated that whole letter. I didn’t write that letter,”
Bornstein told CNN on Tuesday. “I just made it up as I
went along.” Bob Fredericks

President Trump said Tuesday it was “disgraceful” that
the questions special counsel
Robert Mueller (above) wants
to ask him were leaked to the
press — and said again the
Trump campaign’s possible
collusion with Russia is a
“phony crime.”
“So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian
Witch Hunt were ‘leaked’ to
the media. No questions on
Collusion,” Trump railed on
Twitter.
“Oh, I see . . . you have a
made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an
investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. Nice!”
“It would seem very hard to
obstruct justice for a crime
that never happened! Witch
Hunt!” he wrote.
The New York Times late
Monday published more than
four dozen questions that
Mueller wants to ask Trump as
part of the investigation into
Russian meddling in the 2016
election and whether Trump
campaign associates colluded.
Many of the questions focus
on potential obstruction of justice, including the president’s
firing of FBI chief James
Comey and Trump’s reaction
to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal from the Russia
investigation,
a
decision
Trump has angrily criticized.
The questions also touch on
Russian meddling and whether
the Trump campaign colluded
with the Kremlin in any way.
In one question obtained by
the Times, Mueller asks what
Trump knew about campaign
staffers, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort,
reaching out to Moscow.
Another asks what discussions Trump had regarding “any
meeting with Mr. Putin,” referring to the Russian president.
Still others ask what the president may have known about a
possible attempt by his son-inlaw, Jared Kushner, to set up
back-channel communications
with Russia before Trump’s inauguration, and about the June
2016 meeting with a Kremlinconnected lawyer attended by
Trump’s son Donald Jr.,
Manafort and Kushner.
Meanwhile, Deputy Attorney
General Rod Rosenstein said
Tuesday that the Justice Department is “not going to be
extorted” after members of the
conservative House Freedom
Caucus drafted articles of
impeachment against him.
“They can’t even resist leaking their own drafts,” Rosenstein said.
“I just don’t have anything to
say about documents like that
that nobody has the courage to
put their name on and that
they leak in that way.
“The Department of Justice
is not going to be extorted . . .
“we’re going to do what is required by the rule of law and
any kind of threats that anybody makes are not going to
affect the way we do our job.”
Trump slammed Rosenstein
after the FBI on April 9 raided
the home, office and hotel room
of Trump’s personal lawyer,
Michael Cohen, who had arranged $130,000 in hush money
for porn star Stormy Daniels.
The president characterized
the seizure of Cohen’s files as
“an attack on our country.”

Under-fire EPA aide quits, blames media
EPA chief Scott Pruitt’s head of
security — who signed off on his
boss’ first-class travel — resigned
suddenly before a scheduled appearance at a House committee
investigating
Pruitt’s
lavish
spending and ethical lapses, it
was reported Tuesday.
Pasquale “Nino” Perrotta, who
provided round-the-clock security for Pruitt, resigned on Mon-
day, saying it was because of the
mounting media coverage.
“All of this press is taking a toll
on my family. I decided to move
on and it’s been an honor to
serve,” Perrotta told ABC News.
Perrotta, a former Secret Service agent, said he would still
“fully cooperate and answer any
and all questions” in the congressional investigations.
Perrotta has denied any wrongdoing.
His departure comes as the Environmental Protection Agency
confirmed that Pruitt’s Superfund
adviser Albert Kelly is also leaving.
Kelly, a longtime friend of
Pruitt from Oklahoma, stepped
aside after The New York Times
reported earlier this month that
the FDIC barred him from working in the finance industry.
In a statement, Pruitt said Kelly
“will be sorely missed.”
Congress is investigating several ethical scandals surrounding
Pruitt, including first-class travel,
a $43,000 soundproof phone
booth and Pruitt’s rental of a Capitol Hill condo from a lobbyist for
$50 a night.

President Trump on Tuesday relaunched
his plan for the American military to
boldly go where no military has gone before — space, the final frontier.
The president shared his idea at a White
House ceremony during which he presented the Commander in Chief’s Trophy
to the West Point Black Knights football
team for defeating Navy in their annual
face-off last December.
“You will be part of the five proud
branches of the United States armed
forces: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force
and the Coast Guard,” Trump said.
“And we’re actually thinking of
a sixth, and that would be the
Space Force,” he said. “Does that
make sense? Because we’re getting very
big in space, both militarily and for other
reasons. And we are seriously thinking of
the Space Force.”
Trump first voiced his views about a
space-based branch of the military in
March during a speech before a crowd of
Marines at the Marine Corps Air Station
Miramar in San Diego.
“My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air and sea,” the
president said at the time. “We have the
Air Force. We’ll have the Space Force.”
Trump said in March that he had initially
thought of the idea as a joke — but later
changed his mind.
“Then I said, ‘What a great idea. Maybe
we’ll have to do that.’ ”
The United States in 1969 signed the
Outer Space Treaty — officially the Treaty
on Principles Governing the Activities of
States in the Exploration and Use of Outer
Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies — banning space warfare, one
of 105 nations now party to the agreement.
We’re getting very big
in space, both
militarily and for other
reasons. And we are
seriously thinking of
the Space Force.
— President Trump
But it’s unclear what, if anything, could
stop the president and Congress if they decide to put his plan into action.
Lawmakers had different reactions to the
president’s proposed out-of-this-world
new military branch.
Alabama Republican Rep. Mike Rogers,
who along with Tennessee Democratic
Rep. Jim Cooper tried to create a Space
Corps within the Air Force last year,
lauded the plan.
“I couldn’t agree more, @RealDonaldTrump! We need a #SpaceForce
#SpaceCorps!” Rogers wrote on Twitter.
Rogers, the Strategic Forces Subcommittee chairman, last year lamented that the
Air Force had made conventional fighter
jets the priority over space warfare, and
said the US needed a Space Corps to stay
ahead of China and Russia in what could
be the next frontier of warfare.
But Florida Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson
said a new military branch would take resources away from the Air Force.
“I’m not too keen on ripping space out of
the Air Force and creating a Space Corps,”
he said in March.
Air Force leaders, Defense Secretary
James Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff
Chairman Joseph Dunford have also opposed the plan, saying it would add a
costly, unnecessary layer of bureaucracy to
the Pentagon.
Salute to air-tragedy heroes
President Trump on Tuesday
praised the crew and passengers of a
Southwest Airlines flight that made
an emergency landing last month,
saying their performance after an engine blew showed “great character.”
“These Americans responded with
tremendous bravery. Your bravery, your
compassion, are truly appreciated,” the
president said in the Oval Office.
“The actions of the crew and passengers of Southwest Flight 1380 show
the great character of our nation . . .
we’re very, very proud of them.”
Hero pilot Tammie Jo Shults (left,
shaking Trump’s hand) — who safely
landed the plane in Philadelphia after
one of its two engines exploded at
30,000 feet on April 17 — attended the
ceremony along with her four-person
crew and passengers who aided a
mortally injured passenger.
That woman died of her injuries after she was partially sucked out of a
window shattered by engine shrapnel.
“Our hearts break for the family of
the passenger who tragically lost her
life, Jennifer Riordan,” Trump said.
“We send our prayers to Jennifer’s
husband and their two beautiful
young children . . . She must’ve been a
fantastic woman.”

and BRUCE GOLDING
Well that’s a unique defense.
An ex-NYPD official battling
corruption charges claimed
Tuesday that his romp with a
hooker on a trip to Las Vegas
can’t be considered a bribe —
because he paid for her services.
In court papers, ex-Deputy Inspector James Grant said prosecutors want former prostitute
Gabi Grecko to testify against
him to prove she served “as a
form of bribery and a part of a
quid pro quo” involving former
Mayor de Blasio donor-turnedgovernment-witness Jona Rechnitz.
But Grant said that FBI Special
Agent Joseph Downs “definitively” testified before a federal
grand jury that Grant personally
paid the call girl, adding that
Grecko and Rechnitz “both corroborate each other” on that
point.
Grant also cited Rechnitz’s testimony last year that he “had
nothing to do” with arranging or
paying for Grecko’s services, and
noted a Post report in which
Grecko admitted that Grant paid
her around $1,500.
“By definition, Mr. Grant
needs to have actually received a

thing of value from his alleged
bribers,” defense lawyer John
Meringolo wrote.
“It is inarguable that to the extent Mr. Grant purchased an
item or service for himself, that
said item or service cannot be simultaneously said to have been
purchased or provided by Mr.
Rechnitz,” the lawyer added.
The Post exclusively revealed
in 2016 that Grecko engaged in
mile-high sex with Grant, another cop and three other men
while en route to Sin City in a
private plane paid for by Rechnitz to watch Super Bowl XLVII.
Grecko — now an aspiring rapper who calls herself Glitta Foxx
— admitted that she “was doing
it while they were in their seats”
and later shared a penthouse at
the MGM Grand Las Vegas hotel
and casino with Grant.
Tuesday’s Manhattan federalcourt filing said prosecutors’ “insistence on calling [Grecko] to
testify cannot be interpreted as
anything but a tactic to improperly prejudice Mr. Grant in the
eyes of the jury.
“To parade [Grecko] before a
jury for the sole purpose of exposing Mr. Grant’s personal and
intimate indiscretions is not just
unfairly prejudicial and misleading but a patent waste of the
Court’s time during an already
lengthy trial schedule,” Meringolo wrote.

by ISIS barbarians: turning a

He was then thrown off a

mixed with the surrounding
rubble, The Sun reported.
The ghoulish act, shown on
the terror group’s propaganda
channel, was believed to be in
retaliation for airstrikes by
Syrian and Russian forces.
A recent UN Security
Council report said the jihadists have held onto several
Syrian areas, including Yarmouk.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said ISIS also
remains a threat in Deir elZour, Hasakah and the nearby
Qadam neighborhood of the

Russia jet vs.
US spy plane
A Russian fighter jet buzzed a
US Navy spy plane over the Baltic
Sea, ramping up tensions even
higher between the two nuclear
powers.
The Russian Su-27 performed a
“safe” but “unprofessional” intercept of a US Navy P-8 surveillance
plane while flying in international
airspace over the Baltic Sea, Fox
News reported.
The Russian jet came within
about 20 feet of the Navy aircraft,
but the American pilots told their
superiors that they never felt
threatened or unsafe.
It was the first confrontation between Russian and American military aircraft since January, when
another US spy plane was buzzed.
Meeting with counterparts from
Iran and Turkey, Russian Foreign
Minister Sergey Lavrov said recent US-led missile strikes on
Syria “seriously aggravated the
situation.”

KIM: LET’S DO DMZ
9
QUIET SPOT: South Koreans remove propaganda speakers as a goodwill act in the DMZ, as Kim Jong-un OKs that site to meet with President Trump.
By MARK MOORE
North Korean leader Kim
Jong-un has agreed to meet President Trump for a landmark summit on the border separating the
Koreas, according to a report
Tuesday.
South Korean President Moon
Jae-in met with Kim on the Demilitarized Zone in an event that was
aired around the world Friday,
when the two leaders agreed to
formally end the 68-year-old Korean war and to work toward the
“complete denuclearization” of
the peninsula.
As a goodwill gesture stemming
from the sit-down, North and
South Korea on Tuesday also began dismantling loudspeakers that
have broadcast propaganda over
each other’s borders for years.
There’s a “strong possibility” the
meeting with Trump will be held
at the venue in Panmunjom and
some events could even be scheduled on the northern side of the
border, CNN reported, citing a
source with knowledge of North
Korea’s plans.
The site has a number of advantages, including logistics for Kim
Bibi: No fight plans
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told President
Trump during a March 5 meeting in Washington that Iran had
lied about its nuclear-weapons
program — and that Netanyahu
nhad the evidence to prove it.
But a day after unveiling the
“half-ton” of evidence, Netanyahu said he was not looking to
pick a fight with Iran.
“Nobody’s seeking that kind
of development,” Netanyahu
told CNN on Tuesday.
and the presence of media facilities. A spokesperson for Moon
backed the proposal.
“[We] think Panmunjom is quite
meaningful as a place to erode the
divide and establish a new milestone for peace,” the spokesperson
said. “Wouldn’t Panmunjom be the
most symbolic place?”
Trump saw the images of the
meeting between Kim and Moon
After being briefed by Netanyahu, Trump agreed that Israel
should make the proof public
before his May 12 deadline for
deciding whether to pull out of
the 2015 international nuclear
agreement with Iran, Reuters
reported.
Iranian officials on Tuesday
called Netanyahu’s claims “propaganda” and “lies.” US Sen.
Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), called
the revelations “nothing new.”

and was impressed how they were
televised, CNN reported.
He raised the possibility of having a sit-down on the border in a
Sunday phone call with Moon.
“I think it’s probably going to be
announced over the next couple of
days,” Trump said Tuesday.
“I want to get peace. The main
thing, we want to get peace. It
was a big problem, and I think
it’s going to work out.”
The president earlier said the
border venue has a lot going for it.
“There’s something I like about
it, because you’re there, if things
work out, there’s a great celebration to be had on the site, not in a
third-party country,” Trump said
during a news conference in the
White House’s Rose Garden on
Monday.
There has been some push-back
by members of the administration
who fear Trump’s meeting with
Kim on the border would make
the president look too conciliatory.
They have been lobbying for a
neutral location like Singapore.
Trump tried to visit the DMZ
when he was in Asia in November,
but the trip was scuttled because
of heavy fog.
Reports from inside North Korea said the public is aware of the
ongoing talks with Seoul about
the possibility of a historic deal
that would end hostilities. A resident of South Hamgyong Province told the Daily NK news Web
site: “Right now you can just stop
anywhere and hear talk of unification all around you.”

‘Pimps
will kill
them’
Pol weeps at horror
AGAIN: Producer Alexandra
Canosa joins at least 85 other
women to accuse Harvey Weinstein
(shown with her in
2012) of sexual
misconduct.
By KIRSTAN CONLEY
and GABRIELLE FONROUGE
When Assemblyman Joseph
Errigo on Tuesday recounted
the story of a sex-trafficking
victim who was burned to
death by her pimp, he couldn’t
hold back the tears.
“One of the girls had some
money under her fake hair and
to show what he meant, [the
pimp] burned her hair on fire
and killed her in front of these
girls,” the Western New York
Republican said at an Albany
press conference while pushing for legislative reforms related to child sex trafficking.
“The pimps won’t let them
go. They will kill them.”
Errigo, advocates and other
lawmakers want the Assembly
to pass a bill that would eliminate the need for victims to
testify against their traffickers,
making it easier to put pimps
behind bars — and for longer
periods of time.
New York is one of only two
states that require prosecutors
to prove “force, fraud and coercion” to get a sex-trafficking
charge in prostitution cases involving minors.
The burden of that proof almost always falls on the victims’ shoulders, making the
cases extremely difficult to
prosecute.
“Asking her to go to court to
prove that she was coerced is a
very challenging thing for [my
daughter] to do,” said “Jonesie,” a mom whose daughter is
a survivor of sex trafficking
and whose story was featured
in The Post’s recent investigation.
“How does a child . . . sit in a
courtroom and prove that they
are raped?”
JOSEPH ERRIGO
Seeks tougher laws.
Shanifa Bennett, 21, a survivor of sex trafficking who was
also featured by The Post, said
the
proposed
legislation
“sends a signal that our legal
system has our back.
“It gives us back the dignity
our abusers and society have
robbed us of,” she added.
Under the proposed legislation, those who pimp someone
under the age of 19 will automatically be charged with sex
trafficking.
The bill has faced fierce opposition in the notoriously
progressive Codes Committee
over the last few years.
Opponents, such as Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (DBronx), are concerned trafficking victims who help recruit other minors into “the
life” at the behest of a shared
pimp can wind up being
charged with sex trafficking.
Joseph Lentol (D-Brooklyn),
the chairman of the Codes
Committee, told The Post that
staffers are trying to come up
with a compromise so the bill
can get past committee.
After Tuesday, there are approximately 22 session days
left for the bill to pass.
Disgraced movie mogul Harvey
Weinstein repeatedly raped and
threatened a former producer of the
Netflix show “Marco Polo” over a
period of five years, a new lawsuit
charges.
Alexandra Canosa detailed the
years of alleged abuse in Manhattan
Supreme Court papers filed Monday, four months after filing a barebones claim.
Canosa, who was an associate producer at The Weinstein Company,
lists at least nine instances starting
in 2010 where Weinstein allegedly
sexually assaulted, raped, verbally
abused or forced her into performing sex acts. Weinstein is listed as an
executive producer on “Marco
Polo,” which was canceled after two
seasons.
The alleged attacks occurred in
hotels in Manhattan and LA, including the Tribeca Grand and Peninsula, as well as abroad in Malaysia
and Hungary, and continued until
September 2017, the suit claims.
“On many occasions, Harvey
Weinstein insisted on meeting with
plaintiff in isolated environments
for business purposes, made sure
that no other persons or bystanders
were around when having business
meetings with plaintiff, demanded
sexual contact and threatened plaintiff if she would not give him what
he wanted, and forcing himself on
plaintiff despite repeated requests
to stop,” the suit says.
Canosa’s allegations echo ones
lodged by some 85 other women
who’ve brought down Weinstein
with their claims that he threatened
to destroy their careers in the movie
industry if they didn’t give in to his
sexual demands.
Canosa accuses TWC’s board —
including Weinstein’s brother, Bob,
who is also named as a defendant
along with the individual board
members — of covering up the filmmaker’s disturbing behavior.
On Tuesday, Weinstein’s attorney,
Phyllis Kupferstein, said in a statement that the claims from Canosa,
“a good friend” of Weinstein’s, are
“not only mystifying” but also
“deeply upsetting” and “not supported by the facts.”
Lawyers for Bob Weinstein and
TWC didn’t return messages.

‘Break-in’
was just
move-in
A black former Obama
administration worker was
detained by cops as he was
moving in to an Upper West
Side apartment building after a 911 caller mistakenly
thought he was “trying to
break in.”
Darren Martin, a former
associate director at the Office of Legislative Affairs in
Washington and now special assistant to the commissioner for the city Department of Social Services,
said he was unloading his
belongings at his building
on West 106th Street on Friday night when he saw a
marked NYPD car pull up.
“[Three] officers hop out,
demand I let them in the
building, and proceed to
question me,” Martin wrote
in a series of tweets along
with hashtag #MovingWhileBlack. “ ‘I live here, and
I’m moving,’ was my message, but it didn’t permeate.
“Somebody called the
cops on me in my own
building,” Martin added in
an accompanying video of
the scene.
One cop told him, “We’re
doing our job. That’s it. If
you do nothing wrong,
you’ll be good to go.”
Martin was allowed to go
after about 10 minutes, the
NYPD told The Post.

To be clear, it is an American
tragedy that most black and Hispanic students lag most white
and Asian students in reading,
math and most other academic
subjects. While there are individual exceptions, these patterns
have vexed parents, educators
and politicians for decades.
But to progressives like de Blasio, the cause of the problem is
simple: white racism.
So they want a racial quota system where failing minority students are force-fed into classes
of succeeding white and Asian
students.

An additional 15 percent of

The questions special counsel
Robert Mueller reportedly wants
to ask President Trump are
reasonable — if you assume
Mueller is at the beginning of a
fishing expedition.
But when you consider that the
FBI investigation into Russia,
Russia, Russia was nearly a year
old when Mueller picked it up a
year ago, the questions seem
preposterously vague and dated.
As Peggy Lee asked, “Is that all
there is?”
The New York Times’ scoop on
the questions set off a Washington
game of who dun the leaking. The
safe bet is someone in law
enforcement, especially because
Michael Schmidt is the lead byline
on the story. He got many FBI leaks
when James Comey was in charge,
including Comey’s claim that Trump
asked him for loyalty at a dinner.
Sourcing aside, the real issue is
whether Mueller has anything that
would justify Trump’s agreeing to a
sit-down. To judge by the wide
range of the 40 or so questions,
Mueller is curious about
everything and focused on nothing.
Comey’s firing, Michael Flynn,
Paul Manafort, Attorney General
Jeff Sessions, the 2013 Miss
Universe pageant in Russia —
they’re all on the list. Even media
reports that Trump talked about
firing Mueller are there.
Throw in questions about
Trump’s business deals, and it’s
easy to see why the president’s
lawyers look at Mueller’s interview
request as a giant perjury trap.
Because Trump has talked and
tweeted about so many topics,
almost any answer at variance
could be the basis of charge,
whether in court or Congress.
It’s possible the questions are a
negotiating strategy, coming as
Rudy Giuliani joins Trump’s legal
team with hopes of brokering a
quick settlement. In that case, the
first move would be for Mueller to
limit himself to issues where he has
evidence Trump might have
committed a crime.
If he doesn’t have any, the
honorable thing would be to say so
publicly and fold up shop. That
would end the leaks and guessing
games, and let Trump focus on his
day job.
N Bill de Blasio’s New York,
there is no shortage of bad
ideas. But among the very
worst is the so-called plan to
desegregate public schools.
The proposal is so foul that it
doesn’t even get credit for good
intentions. It is the fruit of poisoned progressive politics and,
as such, has almost nothing to do
with helping nonwhite children
do better in school.
If that really were the goal, the
mayor could copy the methods
of the best charter system. About
95 percent of the students in Eva
Moskowitz’ Success Academy
network are black and Hispanic,
yet their schools often rank
among the very best in the state.
In fact, if de Blasio wanted fast
change, he could make MoskowMoskow­
itz chancellor and let her work
her magic on the hundreds of
thousands of kids trapped in pepe­
rennial failure factories.
Fat chance. De Blasio hates
Moskowitz and tries to strangle
charters because he is in the
pocket of the teachers unions.

Guards ‘dusted drugs off Depp’
Page
Six®
Emily
Smith
JOHNNY Depp’s bodyguards were “forced
to protect [him] from himself,” with duties including dusting drugs off his face in public, a
bombshell new lawsuit against the star alleges.
Two former bodyguards — onetime LAPD
detective Eugene Arreola and Miguel Sanchez — claim in a civil suit that Depp repeatedly put them in “toxic” situations, including
once when he went all “Scarface” with his drug
use. “An incident at a local nightclub involved
Plaintiffs alerting Depp of illegal substances
visible on his face and person while preventing
onlookers from noticing Depp’s condition.”
They also claim they “were asked repeatedly
to drive vehicles that contained illegal sub-
stances” and “open containers” and “were
asked to monitor unstable individuals in
[Depp’s] life and entourage,” risking their own
reputations in what they describe as a “toxic
and dangerous work environment.”
The lawsuit, filed in LA Superior Court on
Tuesday, does not elaborate on what the “substances” were. His ex-wife Amber Heard had
declared in legal documents after their
breakup, “Johnny has a long-held and widely
acknowledged public and private history of
drug and alcohol abuse.” According to reports,
Heard alleged his violent behavior was fueled
by cocaine and booze benders.
The guards’ suit is yet another legal woe for
Depp, who’s also in the midst of a bitter $25
million legal battle with his former managers,
who claim the star is in financial disarray.
Arreola and Sanchez also claim in the suit
that Depp’s world is so unsafe, his own head of
security accidentally shot himself in the leg
“while playing with his weapon in a small control room on Johnny Depp’s property.”
They’re suing for unpaid wages, overtime
and damages, and say: “As a result of the toxic
and dangerous work environment . . . Plaintiffs
were forced to leave their employment despite
the fact that they enjoyed many of the people
they worked with and have no ill will toward
Johnny Depp.” The actor’s rep didn’t comment.

Last O.G.” in Los
Angeles.
Kanye reveals lipo sucked
I’ll try the ‘Ham’
LIN-MANUEL Miranda
(above) said at the Eugene O’Neill
Theater Center’s Monte Cristo
Award ceremony that he went
back and forth over which role he
wanted to play in his future smash
hit. In the end, “Hamilton’s final
monologue was written about two
days before we started previews,”
he said. “I didn’t want any of the
other actors to feel like they didn’t
have what they needed.” While
creating the show, “Every time I
wrote [an Aaron] Burr tune, I’d be
like, ‘I want to play Burr!’ ”
KANYE West revealed how he became addicted to opioids after having liposuction, during an epic rant on “TMZ Live” Tuesday. “Two days before I
was in the hospital I was on opioids,” he said. “I was addicted to opioids. I had
plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y’all. I got liposuction because I didn’t want y’all to call me fat like y’all called Rob [Kardashian] at the
wedding and made him fly home before me and Kim got married.” West, 40, was hospitalized in 2016 following an onstage meltdown during his Saint Pablo tour. “I was takWatch
ing two pills a day at that time,” he said. “When I left the
hospital, how many pills do you think I was given?
Seven. I went from taking two pills to taking seven.”
He continued, “The reason why I dropped those
tweets and everything is because I was drugged the f--k
out, bro. And I’m not drugged out. These pills that they
want me to take three of a day, I take one a week, maybe,
two a week. Y’all had me scared of myself, of my vision, so I
took some pills so I wouldn’t go to the hospital and prove everyone right.”
West also controversially declared, “When you hear about slavery for 400
years . . . For 400 years? That sounds like a choice.” After an online eruption of
outrage over that comment, he tried to explain himself Tuesday night, saying,
“To make myself clear. Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and
put on a boat by free will. My point is for us to have stayed in that position even
though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved.”

THE filmmakers behind the new
Ruth Bader Ginsburg doc “RBG”
are seeking rare footage they
couldn’t nail down. Betsy West
and Julie Cohen said Monday at
Metrograph: “One thing that was
not captured, that we wish we had
. . . was an episode in which the justice went parasailing. If anyone has
this footage, they should contact
us.” They added: “[Her workouts]
had not been captured on camera at
all” before their film, where she is
seen, aged 85, pumping weights.
“[We] crouched in the corner because there was no freaking way we
were going to miss that. We proceed to see her go through a routine
neither of us . . . could have done.”
Xtina’s comeback
CHRISTINA Aguilera has revealed she is releasing a new album, and insiders have exclusively
told Page Six about her comeback
plans. The first song released “is
produced by Kanye [West],” a
source said. “It’s very tribal-like,
with heavy drum samples . . .” Aguilera’s song produced by West and
others is expected to drop “this
week,” we hear. The album is set for
release in early summer, and a tour
will be announced at the same time.
Plus, “the first proper single from
the album will be a big duet, but her
team isn’t ready to announce the
other singer — yet.” The source
added, “Christina has changed her
look, her management has got her
great new artists and consultants to
work with, she’s in a great place.”
She also just put that powerful
voice back on display in James
Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke.”

Third woman accuses Brokaw
ANOTHER woman has come forward to accuse veteran
NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw of making an unwanted
advance toward her when she was a young reporter many
years ago. Freelance writer Mary Reinholz wrote that
Brokaw French kissed her inside her LA home during the
1960s after they met at a press conference and he helped her
with a story. “Brokaw made a pass at me 50 years ago in my
rented hillside house . . . We talked and then, abruptly, he was
embracing me and giving me a French kiss,” Reinholz wrote
in a piece for the Villager. “I pulled away, reminding him that
he was married and a tryst was out of the question,” she
wrote. “He said, ‘Yes, it would be unfair to Meredith,’ meaning his wife.” Reinholz added, “I wouldn’t be writing about
this if wasn’t for . . . Brokaw’s disparaging remarks about
Linda Vester [who last Friday alleged Brokaw “grabbed”
her and “tried to force” her to kiss him in the ’90s] . . . I believe her story is credible.” Brokaw has strongly denied
Vester’s allegation, likening it to “a drive-by shooting.” Another anonymous woman has also claimed he propositioned
her at NBC in the ’90s. NBC News didn’t comment.
Yanks named marketing chief
FORMER Hamptons and Gotham editor Samantha
Yanks has landed a huge new job as Douglas Elliman Real
Estate’s chief marketing officer. Yanks will be steering the
large residential real-estate brokerage company’s branding
across their markets nationwide, which include Manhattan, California, Florida, Massachusetts and the Hamptons.
Her role also involves overseeing agent and property marketing, the firm’s magazine, their blog and sponsorships
such as Art Basel Miami. Chairman Howard Lorber said
of Yanks, “She is a powerful marketer and branding expert,
and we are thrilled to welcome her to the team.”

ROBERT De Niro slammed the White
House Correspondents’ Association, saying
it needs to “strap on some balls” after distancing itself from WHCD host Michelle
Wolf’s controversial jokes. While honoring
Helen Mirren at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 45th Chaplin Award Gala
Monday, De Niro said the WHCA should
have stood up for Wolf and for free speech:
“There was a lot of truth in Michelle Wolf’s
jokes. And the bullies and liars are still intimidated by strength and the truth. Where
we run into trouble is when we allow the
bullies and liars to dictate the conversation.
The [Association] distanced themselves
from Michelle Wolf’s performance. Shame
on them — stand up, strap on your balls
and deal.” De Niro also poked fun at
Trump’s immigration stance: “This is what
happens when you have weak immigration
laws. Would we be honoring Helen Mirren
tonight if that wall had been built? . . . I just
feel a little bad for Scott Baio.” Praising the
Oscar winner, he added, “Her artistry also
seems to know no limits . . . she’s played
more queens than RuPaul.” Sticking to the
political theme, Billy Crystal paid tribute
to Mirren by video, saying, “I would have
liked to be there tonight, but my lawyer
Michael Cohen said to lay low.” Other
speakers included Mikhail Baryshnikov,
Vin Diesel, Julie Taymor and Jeremy
Irons, who presented the Chaplin Award to
Mirren. The actress told the crowd, including Tony Bennett, Kiera Chaplin and
David O. Russell, “A few thank yous are in
order . . . to my wonderfully eclectic group
of friends who came to speak for me . . .
The list reads like one of those fantasy dinner party lists, you know, that put Cleopatra
with Elvis, Einstein with Snoop Dogg, or
President Trump with Stormy Daniels . . .

Early financial returns on the
city’s free public Wi-Fi kiosks have
been so underwhelming that the
de Blasio administration plans to
let the consortium running the system defer profit-sharing payments.
The original 2016 agreement with
CityBridge called for the city to receive escalating annual minimum
payments, plus 50 percent of revenues from ads on the LinkNYC kiosks, over the 15-year deal.
But in two years, the city collected shy of $43.4 million in payments, just beating the $42.5 million minimum it was guaranteed.
Now, under an amended deal
that is yet to be ratified, CityBridge
can delay paying its share of the
revenues above the minimum until
the last three years of the contract,
when the profits will be due with
10 percent interest.

Big ‘news’ on F’book
Zuck: Users help rank sites’ trustworthiness
By JOE TACOPINO
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday the socialmedia behemoth has begun to
rank news Web sites based on
their trustworthiness.
The move comes amid concerns
from legislators and Facebook
users that the platform was exploited to spread misinformation
during the 2016 US presidential
campaign.
“Common ground is important,”
Zuckerberg told a group of industry insiders at Facebook’s F8 conference in San Jose, Calif.
“We’re trying to have our community tell us what is quality and
then feeding that into the rankings
and make sure that the stuff people think is broadly trustworthy is
getting promoted.”
Zuckerberg said Facebook has
began asking users questions to
gauge how they view certain news
sites.
“You can get this very easily by
just asking people a simple survey,”
he said. “We need to find ways to
make it so people can tell us and
then incorporate that into rankings.”
“I view our responsibility in
news as two things: Make sure
people can get trustworthy news
in our platform and that we’re doing our job to help build a sense of
common ground in society.
“We also view ourselves as having a responsibility to support the
institution of journalism . . . making it so that more journalists can
be funded and have jobs and do
investigative work.”
Zuckerberg addressed the issue
of fake news spread on Facebook
by outside agents and how it is
constantly adapting in an attempt
to combat it.
“You never fully solve security.
It’s always an arms race,” he said
about the penetration of the site
by bad actors.
“Whatever the Russians are
gonna try to do, or the fake-news
trolls try to do, they’re gonna keep
on coming at us and attempting to
do other things, so we’re gonna be
working on this forever.”
Zuckerberg also said his company had been prepared for traditional hacking and malware attacks
but was caught off-guard by the
“kind of coordinated information
operations” that took place during
the election season.
He noted how Facebook has
already stifled attempts at interference in elections since the race
between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
“Since the 2016 US election,
there was the French presidential
election, the German election, the
Alabama special election last
year,” Zuckerberg added.
“And in those cases, we’ve deployed
[artificial-intelligence]
tools that have successfully taken
down tens of thousands of accounts that we believe are bad actors and just fake-news trolls.”
Zuckerberg also stressed how
users need to feel free to communicate openly.

HS PRUDES ARE
LOADED FOR BARE
Officials at a Catholic high school in a Detroit suburb will require female students to wear “mod­
esty ponchos” at the prom if their dresses are too revealing. Some students at Divine Child HS in Dearborn are calling the policy a form of body shaming. The pink ponchos are on display in­
side the school with a note saying they will be handed to girls wearing dresses that violate the code. The report doesn’t outline the school’s dress code for the May 12 prom but says a teacher will check for compliance at the door. Theology teacher Mary Pat O’Malley came up with the idea. She says the school is trying to focus on inner beauty and the ponchos are intended as a light­
hearted deterrent. AP

‘HOUSE’
Congress’ civil
war as pols live
in their offices
By MARISA SCHULTZ
M
EMBERS of Congress are
sleeping on the job and defending their right to do so.
Crying poverty over decade-old stagnant salaries and
Washington, DC’s, steep cost of
living, an increasing number of
House lawmakers have turned
into squatters at night, hitting the
sack in their Capitol Hill offices —
on everything from cots in closets
to futons stashed behind couches
— to save a few bucks during the
work week.
“Washington is too expensive,”
said Rep. Dan Donovan (R-SI),
who credits the cot that he sleeps
on in a tiny alcove in his office as
the reason he is able to serve in
Congress while still paying his
New York City housing costs.
“If we go to the point where
you have to rent or have to buy
[in DC], then only millionaires
would be members of Congress,’’
he said. “I don’t think that was the
intent of our Founding Fathers.”
But some of the penny-pinching
politicians’ colleagues are disgusted by what they call an unsanitary, undignified practice —
and want it banned.
Proposed legislation set to be introduced in the House as soon as
this month would prohibit politicians from turning their offices
into makeshift sleeping quarters,
with critics arguing that it violates
IRS and congressional ethics rules.
“Look, it’s unhealthy. It’s nasty. I
wouldn’t want to be entertained
in somebody’s bedroom,” said
Rep. Bennie Thompson (DMiss.), who is among those spearheading the bill.
“Sleeping in your office is not
proper’’ ethically, either, Thompson said. “You get free cable. Free
electricity. Free janitorial. Free
security. No rent. It’s a heck of a
deal. It probably comes out to
$25,000 to $30,000’’ a year.
F
OR the slumber-party pols
who catch their zzz’s on office
cots after daylong lawmaking
discussions and fundraising dinners, the issue is simple: money.
Many of them previously got extra compensation, or a per diem,
when they served in their homestate legislatures to cover their living expenses. New York state lawmakers in Albany, for example, get
$175 for each day they are in the
capital. In other state capitals, such
as Sacramento, Calif., the daily stipend is $183, and in Austin, Texas,
it is $190.
But as members of the House,
US representatives receive a salary
of $174,000 a year — a figure that
hasn’t increased in nearly a decade
— and no housing allowance,
while working in a city where a
sparse one-bedroom pad can start
at $2,000 a month. Meanwhile,
they also have to pay to maintain a
residence in their home states.
Members of the Senate seem to
fare better, if only because they
rake in nearly $20,000 more a year,
or $193,400. There are few if any
known examples of senators bunking down in their offices overnight.
While there is no official tally
of the number of House hobos
who turn their offices into makeshift bedrooms, interviews with
members and several Post stakeouts

where they would each pay about
$1,800 a month. That all changed
when Murphy lost a Senate bid to
Marco Rubio in 2016. Walz, a former teacher, said he now sleeps
on an office cot.
“I’m not complaining,’’ he said.
“It’s just figuring how to make all
your finances work.”
A
House member’s office usually has a reception area, a
cramped section of work
space for staff and a separate office for the politician with a seating area and desk. There is no
kitchen or shower.
What makes overnights in the
office possible is Congress’ members-only gym in the basement of
the Rayburn House Office Building. With an annual fee of roughly
$300, members have access to
showers, laundry and lockers.
A typical morning routine for
the sleepover pols is to tuck away
their makeshift beds and head to
the gym for a workout. They then
shower and usually get suited up
there before their staffers arrive
at the office around 8 or 9 a.m.
“Nobody is going to see me like
this,” said Higgins one recent
morning at the gym while sporting ear buds, a long-sleeve T-shirt
and workout pants.
The lawmaker from Buffalo
said he used to split the rent for a
basement apartment, paying
$1,200 a month, but resorted to
sleeping on a couch in his office
when the college bills for his two
kids began piling up.
“I don’t really view it as free
housing,’’ he said. “To be honest,
it’s really convenient to the lifestyle. There’s a gym here. There’s
a shower there. There’s a towel

service there. There’s a laundry
service for gym clothing.’’
Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.)
emerged from the congressional
gym in sweaty scrubs after a workout and bemoaned efforts by his
colleagues to ban office sleeping
for budget-challenged lawmakers.
“It’s ridiculous,” Scott said. “I
can’t afford an apartment.”
R
EP. Adriano Espaillat (DWashington Heights) said
couch-crashing isn’t for him,
even though he, too, faces a high
cost of living back home.
“My couch is too hard,’’ the lawmaker quipped. “I’d wake up with
a stiff neck every morning.”
Instead, Espaillat said, he found
another option: a cheap apartment in nearby Virginia.
“I’m probably one of the poorest
members of Congress,’’ he said.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-Manhattan)
also doesn’t sleep in his office, but
says he can sympathize with those
who do — and worries that Congress won’t represent America if
only wealthy people can afford to
serve. He supports a cost-of-living
hike for members, who haven’t had
a raise since 2009.
But some House members, including New York’s Rep. Claudia
Tenney (R-Utica/Rome) and Rep.
Nydia Velazquez (D-Brooklyn),
balk at any hint of increasing congressional members’ bottom lines.
The issue is a particularly
sticky one for lawmakers, who already take heat from constituents
for what is seen as Washington’s
bloated spending habits.
“We don’t deserve to talk about
a pay raise for Congress until we
balance the budget,” said Rep. Ken
Buck (R-Colo.) — who is among
those who sleep in their offices.
Mississippi’s Thompson, who is
one of those sponsoring the bill
to ban congressional sleepovers,
said he recognizes that either
way, something has to change.
With the support of the Congressional Black Caucus, Thompson is asking the government to

EMOCRATIC Rep. Betty McCollum of Minnesota says
she’s open to considering a
housing stipend, although she
wants the office sleeping to end.
“I wasn’t allowed to sleep in the
classroom when I was a teacher
or in the furniture department
when I worked at Sears,” she said.
Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) says
she would consider either a wage
hike or a housing stipend, saying
it’s a matter of equality.
“Too often, the indirect costs of
serving in Congress, in particular
housing in the DC area, can prevent many good candidates, especially women, people of color and
working-class individuals, from
running,” she said.
Instead of a pay raise, Minnesota’s Walz suggested turning former dormitories once used for the
teenage congressional pages into
housing for members of Congress.
Higgins says he believes
Thompson’s bill is all about forcing Congress to approve a per
diem. And he’s not complaining.
“People have a perception that
we get free health care, and after
our term, we get our full pay —
none of which is true,’’ Higgins
said. “It’s odd that Congress takes
such efforts to undermine its own
integrity as opposed to standing up
for themselves as an institution.”
Still, he took issue with the idea
of taxing members of Congress
who currently sleep over.
“I don’t know if you can call
[sleeping on a couch] a benefit,’’

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), who
is helping to draft the preventative legislation with Thompson.
“Are [their bosses] going to be in
their skivvies? It’s just not consistent with the position they have.”
Only three female US representatives are known to sleep at night
in their offices: Kristi Noem
(R-SD), Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.) and
Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.).
But Higgins says that to make
any connection with the anti-sexual-harassment #MeToo movement “is a stretch.’’ Couch-crashers work later than their staffs because of their in-house sleeping
arrangements, then rise early and
are dressed long before any aides
arrive, he and others argue.
“If you are respectful of people,
you are going to make sure that
you don’t put anybody in an uncomfortable situation,’’ he said.
L
AWMAKERS who sleep at
the office say their less-thanideal living arrangement is
not a matter of choice — and
frankly, it can be embarrassing.
Staffers for Rep. Keith Ellison,
deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, didn’t
respond to questions about
whether he sleeps in his congressional office. But he was furious
to have been caught — disheveled
and carrying his dress shirt and a
bag of clothes — by The Post
heading to the gym one morning.
“I just really deeply resent you
guys camping out here,” Ellison
(D-Minn.) said. “It’s so wrong.”
He proceeded to complain to
Capitol staff about accredited
press being in the taxpayerfunded building. Ultimately, no
security personnel asked The
Post to leave.
Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC), who
keeps a futon mattress behind his
office couch and lays it on the floor
at night to sleep, acknowledged the
situation isn’t comfortable.
But he said he refuses to get a
DC home because he doesn’t
want to be sucked into the Washington “swamp.”
“You can Google my net worth
— I’m not [office-sleeping] for
the rent money,” said Sanford,
whom Roll Call estimated to be
worth around $2.6 million. “I’m
doing it because it’s practical and
it helps me be more effective.
“By the end of the week, you
are ready for a real bed,” he admitted. “It keeps it very clear in
your mind where home is — and
where home isn’t.”

those lawmakers’ living arrangements should be considered an
“accrued benefit’’ by the IRS.
“I sympathize with the members’
situation. But they knew what the
salary was when they came. And
now they found a way around it,’’
said Thompson, adding that he
pays $1,800 for a small studio
apartment in the area for himself.
Calling the office-sleeping
“public housing,’’ he added, “I
personally see it as a way of beating the system.’’

jail guard
A Brooklyn jail guard’s
massive, hook-shaped penis
helped the feds nab him for
allegedly sexually assaulting inmates, it was revealed
in court Tuesday.
Lt. Eugenio Perez is accused of forcing women at
the Metropolitan Detention
Center to give him oral sex
— and prosecutors said they
were able to nail him when
three of his five accusers described his distinctive phallus. Feds made him drop trou
to make a positive ID based
on witness descriptions.
Just what made Perez’s
member so memorable was
revealed on the first day of
the Brooklyn guard’s trial.
“He was uncircumcised, it
was huge, and it was like a
hook,” a 38-year-old former
inmate of the federal lockup
in Sunset Park testified
anonymously. “It was humongous and it was curved.”
She said Perez approached her in an area
where there’s no camera
and solicited her.

Smash kills woman, 85, hurts hub, 90
By TINA MOORE, ALEX
TAYLOR and CHRIS PEREZ
A worker at a Brooklyn
car wash killed an elderly
woman and critically injured her 90-year-old husband while driving a vehicle
at the facility on Tuesday,
cops said.
“He ran the lady over. He
crushed her,” said one witness, who asked not to be
identified. “It was horrible.
[The worker] didn’t know
how to drive.”
At about 2 p.m., the employee at the business on
Avenue U in Marine Park
first rear-ended the couple’s
Honda Accord after it
emerged from the car wash,
cops said.
When the couple got out
to inspect the damage, the
worker, who was in a Jeep
SUV, struck them both, witnesses said.
He had initially backed up

before accelerating forward
and hitting the man and
woman just moments later,
the witnesses said.
The collisions were so violent, the woman’s shoes
flew off her feet and the
man’s cane was knocked
from his hands.
“It was like the car wanted
to cut her in two,” said Greg

nearby body shop Greg’s

“I heard all this noise. I

Loved ones of 9/11 victims

court papers reveal.
Manhattan federal judge
George Daniels signed off
on a proforma default order
Monday against Iran after
the Islamic Republic failed
to respond to the suit.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of relatives of some
1,008 victims, set Iranian
payouts of $12.5 million per
spouse of each victim,
$8.5 million per parent and
$8.5 million per child.
The judgment is widely
considered hollow, since
Iran will unlikely ever pay.
The 9/11 Commission
found no direct ties between Iran and the al Qaeda
terrorists who carried out
the attacks.
While the judgment won’t
directly lead to any payouts,
it’s expected to play some

‘TIL DEATH: A wedding guest in India (gun circled) accidentally fires a celebratory round into his friend’s torso (right), killing the newlywed groom.
By AARON FEIS
This is the shocking moment a
newly married Indian man was fatally shot at his wedding, apparently by a stray celebratory round
fired by a friend.
New groom Sunil Verma, 25, was
celebrating his nuptials with a
gathering of family and friends
Sunday night in the Indian state of
Uttar Pradesh when the party took
a horrific turn.
Video of the tragic incident shows
Verma seated in a circle with a
small group of guests as an orangeshirted man in the background —
visible only from the shoulders
down — fiddles with a handgun.
As lively music pulses, a pop can
be heard and Verma flinches as attendees look around in confusion.
Almost immediately after, a sec-
Pal kills newlywed
with celebratory fire
ond shot rings out, and a muzzle
flash is seen coming from the firearm in the orange-shirted man’s
hand. Verma clutches both of his
hands to his chest and his face
twists with agony. Guests rush toward him, and Verma keels over as
the clip ends.
The stricken newlywed died a
short time later, according to The
Times of India.
The shooter, identified by the
paper only as Ramchandra, a close
friend of the groom, initially fled
the wedding-turned-crime-scene
but was nabbed Tuesday in a
neighboring town, Indian police
reported.
“He has confessed to the shooting, but the investigations will
continue,” officer Ghanshyam
Chaurasia told AFP. “We have recovered the murder weapon.”
Chaurasia added the death appeared to be a tragic accident but
cops are still trying to piece together what happened.
“It appears that the groom was
Harlem church ransacked
There’ll be hell to pay for
these sinners, who not only
swiped treasured artifacts
from a historic Harlem
church, they even stole the
copper piping from its bathrooms.
The crooks broke in
through the locked front
door of the Holy Cross African Orthodox Church on
West 129th Street Thursday.
They made off with an 1890
Bible and its antique stand, a
gold bishop’s staff, a gold ring
and cross, chalices and a
bronze plaque.
“They stole all the things on
the altar — even the incense
and the incense holder,’’ assistant Pastor Denise Randolph said Tuesday.
They also swiped the copper pipes from the bathrooms and “ripped the toilet
out of the wall,’’ she said.
Igor Kossov, Stephanie Pagones
killed during the celebratory firing, but police are probing other
angles, too,” he told the Times.
Police have traced the shots to
Ramchandra’s registered gun and
have booked him on murder
charges, the paper reported.
Although technically illegal, celebratory gunfire is commonplace
at weddings and other festive
events in India. In fact, the same
day as Verma’s death, a 20-yearold man was killed at his cousin’s
wedding in the neighboring Allahabad district when attendees
opened fire with live rounds. The
shooter in that death is still on the
run.
In February, the groom at a wedding in the capital of New Delhi
was killed when he was struck by
a stray bullet.

Security desk: Israel Exposes Limits of US Intelligence
Mueller’s Q’s prove prez shouldn’t talk to him
The trove of stolen Iranian nuclear data unveiled Monday by Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “a big deal,” says Bloomberg’s Eli
Lake — a blow “not only to Iran’s credibility but also to the reputation of
American intelligence gathering.” Because it puts the lie to then-Secretary of State John Kerry’s claim in 2015 that the US had “absolute knowledge” of Iran’s nuclear program. Turns out “there were many details the
US didn’t know” back then. Moreover, the new info “reveals Iran’s intention to eventually build a nuclear weapon” — not to mention that Tehran
“has systematically lied to weapons inspectors for nearly 20 years.” Question is: Will Iran pay a price for its deception?

Starbucks has had second thoughts about using the Anti-Defamation
League in its storewide diversity training, reports Tablet’s Liel Leibovitz.
This, after Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory, a Louis Farrakhan acolyte, tweeted that the ADL is dedicated to “constantly attacking black
and brown people.” So it looks like her “bigoted observation might’ve
swayed someone.” Neither Starbucks nor the ADL is talking, but “anyone
following the current state of the Democratic Party shouldn’t have too
much trouble piecing together the surprising dismissal of one of America’s most veteran and venerated civil rights groups.” Starbucks’ executive chairman, Howard Schultz, is a longtime Democratic donor. And “the
Democratic Party these days is the sort of place where siding with Farrakhan . . . is a badge of radical chic, not a reason for disqualification.”

prosecutor. Liberal foghorns
(among them the Times, USA
Today, Washington Post and Los
Angeles Times)
warned that prosecuting a veto
was out of line.
Superlawyer Alan
Dershowitz likened it to the Soviet Union.
Texas courts tossed out the
case against Perry on the
grounds that using a constitutional power like the veto isn’t a
crime. Yet Mueller appears to be
doing a similar thing with the
pardon power.
Same with the constitutional
power a president has to fire his
officers. This shows up in questions about whether Trump was
toying with the idea of firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Could that have been obstruction of justice? Mueller seems to
think so. He has a raft of queries
about the AG, starting with what
Trump thought of Sessions recusing himself from the Russia
probe.
We already know the answer
to that. Trump thought he deserved an attorney general who
doesn’t feel the need to recuse
himself from the most important
investigation on his watch. Is
that a crime?
Mueller is also looking for an
angle on Russia collusion, which
was part of his actual assignment. This is suggested by a host
of questions the Times reports
Mueller has posed.
The first is when Trump “became aware” of the meeting with
the Russian lawyer offering dirt
on Hillary Clinton. Don Jr., the
Times notes, has said he didn’t
tell his father of the meeting
when it happened.
Clearly, Mueller is trying to
trip up one of them. The long
and the short of it, though, is
that it looks like Mueller’s aim
is to put the president in the
dock.
Meaning, indict him on obstruction or other crimes —
which he probably doesn’t have
the authority to do anyway — or,
more likely, fish up something
for Congress to use as the basis
for impeachment.
To prosecute a president, the
Constitution suggests, first he
must be removed through impeachment. Then, it says, he
shall be “subject to Indictment,
trial, Judgment and Punishment,
according to law.”
Why do Robert Mueller and
the Democrats seem to be itching instead for an indictment?
Well, Dem leaders are signaling
there’s not enough to impeach —
yet. Maybe it just doesn’t have a
taste for ham sandwiches.

Political scribe: Hillary Is Really Hurting Democrats
Isn’t there anyone, asks The Atlantic’s Michelle Cottle, who can convince Hillary Clinton, “this accomplished, inspiring, barrier-breaking superwoman, to stop whining about 2016?” Because
“whatever the root causes, the result is what it is:
She lost.” And she “needs to give the public kvetching and finger-pointing a rest — if not for the sake
of her or her party, then for the nation as a whole.”
Yes, some will argue that she’s entitled to let off
steam. Problem is, “she’s bad at it — by which I
mean she too often winds up making herself look
bad,” especially when her “disdain for everyday
Americans seeps into view.” And until that changes
“she should recognize the yuge favor she is doing
the GOP — and, by extension, Donald Trump.”

Foreign desk: Way Too Early To Declare Victory in Korea
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, warns The Week’s Edward Morrissey.
Some Trump supporters “have all but demanded” that he be awarded the
Nobel Peace Prize — before he’s even met with North Korea’s Kim
Jong-un. But “if we’ve learned anything” from past laureates like Yasser
Arafat and Barack Obama, “it’s to wait for peace first before doling out
the prize. And peace in Korea is still a longshot.” Pyongyang, after all,
“has played this game in the past, offering agreements as a means to entice nations into talks, only to pull a switch at the last minute and demand
concessions as the price of those talks.” And even if Kim is sincere, “the
context of the talks and necessary concessions is still not clear.” Says
Morrissey: “We should all hope for peace in Korea. But we certainly
shouldn’t bank on it.”
From the right: Defund National Public Radio
Several major talk-radio chains are facing tough economic times, especially given the growing popularity of podcasts, says The Weekly Standard’s Ethan Epstein. But they also face “a competitor with a distinctly
unfair advantage”: National Public Radio, a nonprofit that is exempt from
paying taxes and also receives taxpayer funding. NPR “likes to claim that
only 2 percent of its funding comes from the government,” but fees from
local stations, “which make up about 40 percent of its revenues — also
come from Uncle Sam.” No wonder NPR “squeals like a stuck pig every
time Congress threatens to slash funding” for its parent, the Corporation
for Public Broadcasting. Liberate NPR from CPB, he says, “and it can instead focus purely on its news mission and less on flattering the political
party that is buttering its bread.”

HE questions special counsel Robert Mueller supposedly wants to put to President Trump make one
thing clear — it would be folly
for the president to sit for an interview with these jumped-up
G-men.
It’s not just that the questions
badly undercut the claims that
Mueller is not targeting the president. If, as the saying goes, a
prosecutor can indict a ham
sandwich, Mueller appears to be
building out of Trump a Dagwood special.
It’s also that for the president
to sit down for an interview
would be to acknowledge Mueller’s authority to begin with. Yet
the more Mueller shows his
hand, the more illogical his authority starts to look.
That’s because the only authority the Constitution clearly
grants to investigate a sitting
president is the impeachment
process. Before this fight is over,
Trump may yet want to use that
argument.
Mueller’s questions for the
president were reported Tuesday by The New York Times. It
says it obtained four dozen of the
posers, without saying whether
they came from
Mueller’s camp
or Trump’s (or
SETH
elsewhere).
LIPSKY
No matter, really (Mueller is
not disputing the questions). They
include kind of verbal traps a
prosecutor would set if he wanted
to make his ham sandwich using,
say, obstruction of justice.
Mueller’s questions start with
Gen. Michael Flynn, whom
Trump fired as national security
adviser. Mueller wants to know
what efforts were made to
“reach out” to Flynn about a
“possible pardon.”
When Flynn started cooperating with the FBI, the Times
claims, “Trump’s lawyers floated
the idea of a pardon.” It says
Mueller wants to know why.
That suggests Mueller’s team
is fishing for a charge that
Trump tried to obstruct justice
by using the pardon power.
Never mind that the pardon is
the least-fettered power any
president has.
Where are the liberal papers
on this outrage? Even the Times
objected when, in 2014, a grand
jury in Texas indicted then-Gov.

A Sign of Our Times:
Wolf’s Obscene Routine
America’s oldest continuously published daily newspaper
S
Blas’ ‘Secret Agent’ Fail
core another big win for The Post and
the cause of government transparency —
and a huge loss for Mayor de Blasio’s efforts to keep his secret e-mails with those
“agents of the city” out of the public eye.
A five-judge Appellate Division panel on
Tuesday unanimously upheld a lowercourt ruling that the mayor must disclose
all of his communications with outside
consultants like Jonathan Rosen.
The ruling came in response to a lawsuit
filed by The Post’s Yoav Gonen and NY1’s
Grace Rauh after City Hall rejected their
Freedom of Information Law requests.
After persuasive arguments by Post lawyer Jeremy Chase and NY1 lawyer Doug
Maynard, team de Blasio “had no reasonable basis to withhold the documents,”
wrote Justice Anil Singh, calling its decision to do so entirely “without merit.”
Indeed, he added, keeping the e-mails secret would run “counter to the public’s interest in transparency and the ability to
participate on important issues of municipal governance.”
D
$100-a-Month Rent?
oubt the city’s rent rules are messed up?
Then check out Isabel Vincent’s jaw-dropping tale in last Sunday’s Post of a woman
who just won the right to a $100-a-month,
two-bedroom unit in Queens. Forever.
The Division of Housing and Community
Renewal recently granted Maria DeTommaso “successor rights” to the rent-controlled flat of an 85-year-old man who “adopted” her as his then-58-year-old daughter
just before he died.
She denies getting Nicholas DeTommaso
to agree to be her “father” just to get her
hands on his apartment. But the building’s
elderly immigrant owners, Sugrim and
Kowsila Outar, say she “tried all ways” to
snag the unit. Now the Outars, who’d hoped
for a market rent of $1,500, are looking to
unload the building instead.
Here’s the thing: Nicholas was getting an
undeserved deal, with rent determined by
World War II-era “emergency” regulations.
Now Maria will carry on that legal scam for
who knows how long. And before she dies,
I
Hear, hear!
Rosen, after all, isn’t just a mayoral adviser. He also represents private clients
with business interests before the city. As
Singh noted: “These documents include examples of the mayor and Mr. Rosen discussing issues important to [his] private clients.”
Even as he does that, though, Rosen and
his powerhouse public-relations firm, BerlinRosen, have operated as a shadow government at de Blasio’s City Hall — even
drafting its press releases.
They also were hired by the mayor’s
now-defunct political slush fund, the Campaign for One New York.
In November 2016, de Blasio agreed to turn
over 1,550 pages of “secret agent” e-mails
and said all future communications would
be made public. But he had no intention of
turning over key messages from his first
three years.
Now the courts have made clear that the
public’s right to know overrides Bill de Blasio’s desperate bid to keep the sordid details of his mayoralty secret.
she may find someone else to hand it off to.
Plus, it seems Maria sublets via Airbnb for
$50 a night. She covers her rent in just two
nights; the rest is profit.
DeTommaso makes out swell, but the Outars lose big-time — thanks to outdated laws.
True, less than 27,000 units in the city still
fall under full rent control. But more than a
million are rent-stabilized, meaning their
rents are set by the Rent Guidelines Board.
In 2015 and 2016, the board (tapped by
Mayor de Blasio) froze rents entirely. Last
week, it proposed hikes on 1-year leases of
only between .75 percent and 2.75 percent.
Tenants, of course, blasted that as too high.
It’s a truly perverse system. The artificially
low charges are a key reason for the city’s
eternal “housing shortage” — and for exorbitant rents for market-rate units. Regulated
apartments don’t even go to the neediest but
to those who get lucky or game the system.
And Gov. Cuomo now wants to tighten the
rent laws to further protect the lucky few — at
everyone else’s expense. That’s progressive?
Harassment Hypocrisy
n line with his “do as I say, not as I do”
mantra, Mayor de Blasio on Monday
talked up a package of bills he said is
aimed at “strengthening sexual-harassment
protections” in both government and the
private sector.
This, the week after he drew withering
fire for City Hall’s refusal to share details on
how it resolved some 1,425 harassment complaints filed against its employees from mid2013 through the end of 2017 — other than to
say that 221 were substantiated, including up
to five against people in the Mayor’s Office.
Still unknown, for example, is how (or if)
the workers were disciplined. As The Post’s
Yoav Gonen and Ruth Brown reported, the
mayor’s minions promise they’ll give some
aggregate report on disciplinary action
taken . . . eventually, someday, and not broken down by department.
Hmm: De Blasio himself suggested that
the Department of Education, in particular,
has a “hyper-complaint dynamic.” Doesn’t
that argue for breaking out DOE complaints,
and indeed those of all major agencies?
The mayor noted that some of the new
bills (which he’s to sign into law next week)
“require city government agencies to
strengthen reporting and training.” Don’t
bet on him to honor that retroactively.

but never for the theocratic Holocaust-denying state-sponsor of
terror housing plans for a nuclear

Moreover, though intelligence is
rarely a sure thing, the idea that
Mossad “cooked up” documents of
the Iranian nuclear plan seems
rather implausible considering Israel is sharing all of them with participants of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and the International Atomic Energy Agency.
A more prevalent position
among Iran-deal fans is to simply
pretend the Iranian documents do
not matter.
“There is literally nothing new
here,” claims arms-control expert
Jeffrey Lewis. But there’s plenty new.
When Diplomacy Works and
other Iran-deal proponents were
selling us the deal, one of the most
popular talking points was to claim
that the deal would be contingent
on the Islamic Republic agreeing
not to “attempt to design, pursue,

Dems Attack ICE Instead of Criminals
G
OV. Cuomo is threatening to sue the
federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to stop its ongoing
raids to detain illegal immigrants
wanted for serious crimes like assault and
rape. A staggering 80 percent of those apprehended in recent ICE raids in New York
were either convicted criminals or charged
with crimes. But Cuomo’s siding with
criminals over their victims.
He’s playing politics. Faced with a challenge on his left flank from Cynthia Nixon,
he’s desperate to prove his liberal bona fides.
Public safety be damned.
The governor is parroting Democrats
across the nation who claim ICE should be
abolished because it’s breaking apart families and peaceful communities. The facts
prove otherwise. Eighty-eight percent of the
illegal immigrants arrested in recent Los
Angeles ICE raids and 81 percent arrested
throughout California, according to the latest ICE data, had criminal convictions.
These are bad guys. So when House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
claims that “unjust and cruel” ICE raids
“terrorize innocent immigrant families,”
don’t buy it.
Cuomo’s making the same bogus claim. lice before taking enforcement action.

federal agents to touch base with local po- lives of law enforcement just to promote
your radical open borders agenda?”
Political pandering is driving this agenda.
An amazing 27 percent of California’s population are immigrants. Immigrants disproportionately favor big government. California hasn’t elected a statewide Republican
since 2006. New York is moving in the
same direction, with 23 percent of its population foreign-born and Democrats gaining
increasing control of state government.
Cuomo and other Democrats have been
resisting the federal crackdown on immigrant-related crime and calling for increased spending on after-school music
and sports programs to provide an “alternative” to gang activity in immigrant communities. That’s nonsense. Brutes willing
to torture and mutilate a human being with
a machete will not be dissuaded by learning to play the flute.

EPUBLICANS “drove the car
in the ditch . . . and now they
want the keys back.”
For years, President Barack
Obama would trot out this analogy
to attack his rivals’ fecklessness
and obstructionism . How could
the very same people who got us
into the financial crisis lecture
those who were getting us out of
it?
Well, after driving the United
States into a foreign-policy wreck,
it’s time for former members of the
Obama administration to ask
themselves the same question.
According to Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel has
recovered documents that demonstrate Iran was seeking nuclear
weapons. These clandestine plans
for five 10-kiloton nuclear warheads were hidden and stored by
Iran while it was developing a
ballistic-missile program that
would be able to carry them to
Tel Aviv.
So not only did the United States
end up saving the Islamic Republic
from economic ruin with the Iran
deal, it allowed the nation to solidify its foothold in Syria and
strengthen its terrorist proxy Hezbollah. And not only did the Obama
administration allow a humanitarian disaster to unfold in Syria while
it was placating Russia to save the
deal, it destroyed a sanctions program that was working.
On top of that, we also now
know that the Iran deal was sold to
the American public in bad faith.
Yet, even after these revelations
came to light, the former Obama
aides who established a media
echo chamber meant to silence
critics and mislead citizens were
still taunting and whining from
sidelines, offering one bizarre justification after the next to continue
the charade.
Tommy Vietor, former spokesman for Obama’s National Security
Council, defended the Iran deal by
making the bewildering accusation
that President Trump was “cooking up intel with the Israelis” to
start a war.
Now, it’s worth noting that accusations of Jewish warmongering
were also thrown around by Irandeal advocates during the lead-up
to the deal, prompting a condemnation from the Simon Wiesenthal
New York Post, Wednesday, May 2, 2018
O’s Disaster Artists
be a foreign-policy expert to understand that hiding a giant cache of
secret documents with instructions
on how to jumpstart a program to
build a nuclear arsenal undermines
both the spirit and purpose of a
nonproliferation agreement. It’s the
definition of attempting to design,
pursue, build or otherwise seek a
nuclear weapon.
Lewis wasn’t alone. Ben Rhodes,
perhaps the leading booster of the
Iran deal within the Obama administration, argued that “by reminding
everyone of the well-known preIran Deal history, Netanyahu inadvertently made the case for why the
Iran Deal needs to stay in place.”
If these documents are so well
known, why didn’t Rhodes or anyone in the administration ever
mention them? Where is the interview or the statement by the former president or by then-Secretary of State John Kerry letting
Americans know that Iranians
were in possession of hundreds of
thousands of documents and plans
that would allow Iran to quickly
weaponize? Did the administration
know and not let the American
people in on the secret?
“What this means is the deal was
not constructed on a foundation of
good faith or transparency,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently
noted. “It was built on Iran’s lies.”
Indeed. But let’s not forget that it
was not only Iran but the Obama
administration echo chamber that
sold the deal in bad faith. Now it
will be Pompeo, John Bolton and
Donald Trump who have to get the
United States out of a ditch.

ace. Declarer then tried to sneak
through the jack of diamonds. That
ploy worked none too well when East
took the king and led his last spade.
West ran the spades for down one.
“Declarer should duck two spades
and win the third,” the player who had
been dummy contended. “Then he can
lead the jack of diamonds. East has no
more spades, so declarer is safe.”
“Sure,” sneered the South player.
“And if West has the king of diamonds,
I go down at a cold game.”
Who was right?
As you might expect, nobody. South
should win the second spade, cash
four clubs and the A-K of hearts, and
exit with the jack of spades. After
West takes three spades, he must lead
a heart to dummy’s queen or a
diamond to South’s A-J, conceding the
ninth trick.

Sports leagues want cut if betting is legalized
By JOSH KOSMAN
Sports leagues want a piece
of the action.
The leagues, after fighting
an all-out legal war for years
to prevent sports betting,
have recently met with casinos and state lawmakers to
make sure they would get a
piece of the action should the
US Supreme Court knock
down federal prohibitions in
the coming weeks.
The leagues are pressing
states to include a small “integrity fee” to every sports
bet placed, The Post has
learned.
The fee, or tax, could range
to up to 2.5 percent of sports
betting profits, sources said.
The pressure seems to be
paying off in New Jersey,
where Gov. Phil Murphy is
expected to back a proposed
sports betting bill that includes an “integrity fee” of 2.5
percent of sports book profits, or $7.5 million — whichever is lower, two sources
close to the situation said.
The fee could raise $50 million a year in New Jersey,
sources predict. The leagues
would then petition the state
to be reimbursed for the additional costs they would incur
for having to step up enforcement efforts to keep their
games clean.
MLB and NBA are pushing
for similar fees in all the
states that follow New Jersey’s lead.

weeks after the ruling.
New Jersey has forked over
$8.6 million in the legal battle
against the leagues, one
source said.
“The same leagues that
forced New Jersey to spend
millions to overcome their
opposition to sports betting
are going to get millions
from the New Jersey treasury when we beat them in
court?” former State Senator
Ray Lesniak, who for years
led the state’s effort to bring
sports gambling to the state,
asked rhetorically. “I’m from
New Jersey, and I have a
problem with that.”
New Jersey will likely enact
a new law if the Supreme
Court rules that the Professional and Amateur Sports
Protection Act of 1992, or
Paspa, is unconstitutional.
The new law would allow
the state to collect more taxes
from sports betting.
Under the proposed bill,
online sports bets would be
taxed at 12.5 percent and bets
made at a sports book would
be taxed at 8 percent.
MLB and NBA lawyers on
April 18 met with several of
New York’s four commercially licensed casinos at
State Senator John Bonacic’s
offices in Albany, pitching for
an “integrity fee” if betting is
legalized in the state.
The leagues also want a fee
for allowing sports books to
use their official data, two
sources said.
In Nevada, where sports
betting is legal, there is no integrity fee.
Bonacic, in his sports betting bill, includes a sports integrity fee that would be no
greater than 2 percent of
gross gaming profit.
The leagues are also asking
for the right to know what
sports bets are taking place so
they can run data and spot
suspicious betting activity.
Murphy, through a spokesman, declined to comment on
whether he supports an integrity fee. The NBA and
NFL declined comment.

Dallas firm wins bidding for Weinstein Co.
A Dallas private equity firm
emerged Tuesday as the winning bidder for the bankrupt Weinstein Co.,
the studio brought down by the sexual misconduct scandal involving cofounder Harvey Weinstein.
Lantern Capital’s $310 million cash
stalking-horse bid turned out to be
the highest offer, the company said in
a statement.
Lantern’s bid requires court approval at a hearing set for next week
— and there likely will be plenty of
pushback. Several actors — including
Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep and
Brad Pitt — have objected to a sale,
claiming they are owed profit participation from projects.
Also, five women who have filed a
class-action lawsuit against the pervy
producer over his alleged sexual harassment and assault came out Tuesday against the Lantern deal because
it doesn’t guarantee a settlement fund
for Weinstein’s alleged victims.
Weinstein claims the relationships
with the women were consensual.
Roughly 80 women, including
prominent actresses, have accused
Weinstein of misconduct ranging
from rape to harassment.
Lantern's deal to acquire the studio,
whose assets include a lucrative 277film library, with movies like 2010’s
“The King’s Speech,” and 2015’s “The
Hateful Eight,” a TV production business and four ready-to-go films, will
assume $125 million in debt and obligations related to certain contracts
and leases — but not a settlement
fund for victims.
Hours after Monday evening’s bidding deadline, Broadway producer
Howard Kagan bid $315 million — and
promised to set up a settlement fund.
Kagan’s bid was rejected by the
company for various reasons — including the fact that he had no financing agreement in place to back his bid.
Lantern did not immediately comment to the AP on the developments.

CEO of Match Group majority owner IAC — which
saw its shares plummet
nearly 18 percent Tuesday,
to $133.33.
“Come on in. The water’s
warm,” Levin said.
Facebook said its dating
feature will only display
profiles of users who are
not friends on the social
network. Instead, the new
feature will allow users to
connect through shared interests or events they plan
to attend.
“It mirrors the way people actually date, which is
usually at events and institutions that they’re connected to,” Chief Product
Officer Chris Cox said.
The dating feature will be
built in to the main Facebook app, but will be optional, Zuckerberg said. Us-
ers who opt in will be able
to build profiles similar to
those on popular apps like
Tinder and Bumble.
Facebook has long allowed users to display their
relationship status on their
profiles. Zuckerberg said
that introducing a functionality to link single users is a
logical next step.
“There are 200 million
people on Facebook who
list themselves as single,”
he said. ”Clearly there’s
something to do here.”
Separately, on Tuesday,
British Parliament again demanded that Zuckerberg
come to London to answer
questions about the Cambridge Analytica scandal,
and threatened him with a
formal summons to force
him to appear the next time
he sets foot in the country.

Five complaints led to Jamieson exit: sources
By KEITH J. KELLY
EW York Times Metro Editor
Wendell Jamieson’s “misN
takes” involved four or five women,
The Post has learned.
The women came forward to the
Times in recent weeks with complaints against Jamieson, sources said.
The Times, after an investigation,
forced the editor’s resignation on
Monday.
The exact nature of the complaints
could not be learned.
Jamieson did not return calls for
comment.
The editor, a married father of two,
was at the Times nearly 20 years — including the last five as metropolitan
editor.
In resigning, Jamieson apologized
for his “mistakes.”
Dean Baquet, the Times executive
editor, addressed the metropolitan
staff on Monday to tell them about Jamieson’s ouster.
But at least one insider came away
from that meeting wanting more answers, saying, “[Baquet] left a lot of
questions unanswered. We still don’t
know exactly what he did.”
None of the names of the accusers
was released either publicly or internally, sources said.
On Tuesday, a Times spokeswoman
addressed the less-than-robust
amount of info released by the paper.
“We want to ensure that we foster a
climate where employees feel free to
come forward with complaints knowing that we will investigate fully and
protect their privacy after doing so,”
she said.
But as one insider noted, “They
could have told us what he did without revealing names.”
The insider said that lack of disclosure has left insiders to try to figure it
out for themselves.
“The cops weren’t called,” said the
source, suggesting that there was no
criminal behavior.
But it still is embarrassing for the
Times, because the incident comes to
light shortly after it won a Pulitzer
Prize for its investigation into pervy
Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein — who allegedly over more
than 10 years sexually harassed and attacked dozens of women.
The Weinstein Co., founded by
Harvey and his brother, Bob, was
forced to make payments to the accusers. The Manhattan DA reportedly has re-opened a criminal investigation into Harvey Weinstein.
Weinstein maintains the encounters were consensual.
The Jamieson outster also comes
shortly after Baquet decided that
Glenn Thrush, a reporter in the paper’s Washington, DC, bureau, should
be suspended — not forced to resign
— after at least four women came forward with claims that while at Politico
before joining the Times, Thrush
acted inappropriately with actions
that included forced kissing and
touching.
The Times investigation of Jamieson was brief — only about a
month long, sources said. The bulk of
the evidence unearthed by the Times
probe was contained in e-mails from
Jamieson, one source said.
“He was not very smart, putting
stuff in e-mails in the era of the #MeToo movement,” said one source.
Hill out of dinner
The Hill, an insiders’ digital and
print publication owned by Jimmy
Finkelstein, said on Tuesday that it is
pulling out of the White House Correspondents Association dinner next
year after the controversy that
erupted around the jokes of this year’s
host, the comedian Michelle Wolf.
Wolf had made fun of White House
press secretary Sarah Huckabee
Sanders in remarks that some media
people on the left and right had criticized as being out of bounds.
Others felt Wolf’s comments were
exactly what the WHCA had signed
on for.
President Trump, who broke with
tradition and skipped the dinner for
the second year in a row, was calling
for the dinner itself to be
scrapped.
Finkelstein wrote, “In
short, there’s simply no
reason for us to participate in something that
casts our profession in a
poor
light.
Major
changes are needed to the
annual event.”
The dinner is supposed to be staged
to celebrate the first amendment and
raise money for college scholarships.
In past years, comedians would
roast the president and the president
would toss jibes back at the press. It
had increasingly become a red carpet
event with media organizations try-
ing to outdo themselves to get celebrities to grace their tables.
Presidents as far back as Calvin
Coolidge have attended over the
years, but the poisonous relationship
between Trump and the media
caused him to stay away and instead
stage campaign rallies where he criticized “fake news.”
Without the president, the star quotient dropped, and a number of parties surrounding the event were
scrapped — although Playboy
showed up for the first time with an
after-party this year.

“If a team wins the Super

“This is the first cycle

the executive added.
Apple reported quarterly
profits of $61.1 billion, or
$2.73 a share, up 16 percent

Apple revenue grew in
each of its geographic segments, including more than
20 percent growth in China

Apple’s “Other Products”

—

Apple sold 4.1 million Mac

that it is now the best-selling

Ross defends tough stance on China
By CARLETON ENGLISH
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — President
Trump’s hardball approach to China on
trade issues may be risky, but it’s necessary, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross
said on Tuesday.
That’s not to say that Trump’s approach won’t make it any less tense when
Ross travels to Beijing later this week to
discuss trade, the Commerce boss told
The Post on the sidelines of the Milken
Institute Global Conference here.
Ross, Treasury Secretary Steve
Mnuchin and other officials are ex-
pected to talk trade deficits and concerns
about intellectual property theft while in
China.
“I don’t know what the exact end result
will be, but I think that we’ll be better off
for having had the meetings than for not
having them,” Ross told The Post.
On top of the tariffs, Trump more recently has demanded that China eliminate $100 billion of the US trade deficit
— a proposal Chinese officials have dismissed out of hand.
“If you don’t take some risks and if you
don’t show that you’re willing to absorb a
little bit of pain, how on earth are you go-
ing to get things changed?” Ross asked in
a panel talk earlier in the day.

Trump’s tough tactics were applauded
elsewhere at the conference on Tuesday.
“Look, we’re going to practice a little
bit of dynamite diplomacy,” Thomas
Barrack, a pal of President Trump’s and
chairman of $43 billion asset management firm Colony NorthStar, said in a
panel Tuesday.
“You need to blow up the system
sometimes to make the system [work],
and it starts at home,” Barrack said.

Goldman Sachs dealt with
the devil — and just got
burned by some regulatory
heat.
Lloyd Blankfein’s bank
paid $110 million on Tuesday
to settle charges that its
traders rigged currency
rates for five years by using
sneaky tricks to share confidential information — including nicknaming one client “Satan.”
“I remember the old days,
your satan info was legendary,” one Goldman trader
wrote to another in a chat
room — a back channel
commonly used to get
around privacy rules that
protect clients, according to
a consent order with the
New York Department of Financial Services.
It’s unclear who “Satan”
was, but it appeared to be a
trader at another large bank,
according to the settlement,
which the DFS split with the
Federal Reserve.
The collusion was so brazen that one salesman
scolded traders for sharing
clients’ private info with
traders at other banks — and
questioned what the other
traders were getting in return, according to the settlement.

Apple on Tuesday ramped
up efforts to return some of
the nearly $270 billion in
cash on hand to shareholders.
The tech titan, while reporting solid sales of its
iPhones, jacked up its quarterly dividend by 16 percent
and unveiled $100 billion in
stock buybacks — among the
largest such moves in history.
The dividend increase and
buybacks seemed to satisfy
investors who had to digest
quarterly sales of iPhones,
iPads and Macs that fell short
of Wall Street expectations.
Shares of the Cupertino,
Calif., company, after adding
2.3 percent, to $169.10, in regular trading hours, gained 3.5
percent after hours to bring
the shares back into positive
territory for the year.
Apple’s numerous iPhone
models moved 52.2 million
units, coming in just under
analyst expectations of 52.3
million.
Apple Chief Executive Tim
Cook, in a statement,
brushed aside any worries
about the $999 iPhone X’s reported sales issues.
“Customers chose iPhone
X more than any other
iPhone each week in the
March quarter,” Cook said.
“Just as they did following its
launch in the December
quarter.”
Sales of the iPhone X —

New York City’s top scofflaw, the
late Herman Kraus, a contractor
turned affordable developer, had
been arguing and litigating with the
Big Apple and others over property
taxes and interest for a dozen properties since 1991 — some 27 years.
Lawsuits and negotiations with
City Hall have now reduced that to
six buildings that still owe more
than $106.38 million.
These are all part of Buff, a 250unit affordable project in Williamsburg that Kraus’ company owns
with other investors as, “Development Associates Buff.”
The company noted that after the
tax exemptions ended in 1991, other
expenses were incurred, but it received just two rent increases in 25
years.
“The owners have been working
with the city on a resolution to settlement of all outstanding matters,
and are committed to concluding
that process as soon as possible,” a
company spokesperson said.
A spokesman for the city’s Law
Department added, “Over the last
four years, the Kraus company has
paid nearly $2 million in real property taxes to the city.
“The city is in discussions with
the owners regarding satisfying this
property tax debt.”
The Finance Department’s 10-day
Lien List shows Buff’s top scofflaw
building on South 2nd Street in
Brooklyn owes $22.78 million —
$26.47 million as of Tuesday.
The city’s second-largest scofflaw,
26 Lexington Ave., with a second address at 5 Quincy St., in Brooklyn,
owes $21.07 million and hasn’t paid a
dime since 1994.

and more casually clad
tech guys mingled with
younger women in high
heels. Both sexes eagerly
eyed their prospects around a
dimly lit, chandeliered bar as
Drake’s “Nice for What” played in
the background.
At first, the evening resembled
a mixer connecting pretty 20somethings with well-off men in
their 30s, 40s and 50s, but, as the
night wore on, things changed.
Some of the women led men to
plush leather sofas lining the space
and began dancing for them, seductively removing their tops and bras.
At new gentlemen’s club the
Rosewood Theater, fresh-faced college coeds take off their clothes for
wealthy men seeking a strip-club
experience with a different, more
hip feel than Scores or Sapphire.
It’s “Soho House meets the Box,”
Rosewood founder Kalin Moon
tells The Post, name-checking
the trendy members’ club and the
risqué burlesque boîte, both located
downtown. “Strip clubs today ...
have no style and sophistication.”
Moon, a hospitality industry veteran, also operates WLVS, a private
men’s-only club launched in 2014
that hosts private parties where its
wealthy members can get lap dances or meet sugar babies. Rosewood,
located at 552 W. 38th St., is his first
venue open to the public.
The cost to enter is $40 for average Joes. (WLVS guys, who pay

of that society, can enter the club
free of charge.) A sign in the lobby
reads: “Drugs, soliciting, heavy
touching, sex and bad vibes are
strictly prohibited.”
Lap dances start for a “suggested
gratuity” of $20 per song, and
$125 buys access to semiprivate,
curtained-off VIP rooms at the
back of the club. There are no poles
in the main space and, other than a
weekly burlesque night, no public
performances. A second-floor
area — only accessible to WLVS
members — features poles, along
with a tapas kitchen that serves a

gold for $100.

To further distinguish Rosewood
from standard strip joints, Moon
makes a point of hiring young
women who aren’t professional
exotic dancers.
“Girls come [to work for me]
literally straight out of college that
don’t want to bartend, don’t want
to work at a strip club,” Moon says.
“If you look and act like a stripper,
that’s a no. We just want the girl
next door: bubbly personality and
attractive in their own way.”
Naomi, a petite 22-year-old
with long black hair, hasn’t yet
graduated from NYU and started
working for Moon about a month
ago. On a recent night at Rosewood,
she looked sexy but wholesome
wearing subtle makeup, a slinky
Topshop dress and strappy heels.
“They told us to dress like you’re
going to a nice dinner with friends,”
she says.
Naomi, who didn’t want to
share her last name for privacy
reasons, says she never gives her
number to men she dances for, but,

under different circumstances,
she’d consider dating them.
“If I met them in another setting, I’d be friends with some of
them,” she says.
She started working at Rosewood
for financial independence because
her parents are threªtening to cut
her off. She says she’s heard of girls
making $800 a night, and, while she
hasn’t raked in such sums yet, she’s
hopeful she will.
“I’m able to start saving now,”
Naomi says. She insists: “It’s
empowering.”
“Empowering” is a word Moon
also tosses around. He notes that
Rosewood women can come and
go as they please. They don’t work
by the hour but rather are free
agents who keep all of the money
they make off lap dances.
“I asked a girl, ‘Why do you take
your clothes off for guys?’ and
she says, ‘Kalin, you create this
amazing experience. I’ve never
felt this sexy with my boyfriend. I
would do this for free,’ ” he claims.
“I want to create an empowering
atmosphere for women.”
Katie, 21, an engineering student
who started working for Moon
a month ago, is also looking for
financial independence. A blonde
who wears her hair in long braids,
she says it’s easier than studying.
“I like stroking a guy’s cheek to
pretend that I care,” says Katie.
Some Rosewood clients certainly
seem to buy into the illusion.
“Part of the allure is that they
can come home with you,” says
one client.
Moon concurs.
At other clubs, strippers are just
“going through the motions to make
their financial goals — here it’s
more about relationships,” he says.
Across the bar, a middle-aged
guy wraps his arm around a curvy
brunette, and his wedding band
sparkles under the chandeliers.
“Most [of these men] . . . work
all the time,” Moon says. “They
accumulate all this money . . .
they’ve done a lot and are now
looking to enjoy their downtime
— they want more.”

With polluting plastic straws becoming a
social taboo, a growing number of bars and

“It’s a stylish thing.”
Others aren’t bending so easily. Naomi
Shaw says she first tried a paper straw at her
wedding. “One of our gifts was a mini bottle
of prosecco, and we included a paper straw
because they’re so cute,” says the 29-year-old,
who lives in Jersey City and frequents coffee
shops near her beauty-industry office in
Manhattan. But when she went to drink her
bubbly, she says, “the straw was just mush.”
She’s avoided paper straws since, toting a
reusable iced coffee jug with a built-in straw
when she remembers and going for the plastic when she doesn’t.
“I always opt for a plastic straw, even
though it might not be environmentally
friendly,” she admits.
But for those who complain about mushy
paper alternatives, Frenchette’s Hanson has a
solution: Drink up.

hitting people over the head, and I think
options are good, because it will ease people
into this transition,” she says. “There will be a
day when we do only have paper straws.”
Not that she’ll be using them. Diamond carries a reusable glass straw by the brand Glass
Dharma, sold for $10 at chic boutiques such
as CAP Beauty in the West Village. (There are
also plenty of options on GlassDharma.com.)
Patricia Brown, a 46-year-old photographer based in Jersey City, NJ, makes a point
of educating cafes that aren’t offering alternatives to plastics.
“I have a conversation and show them a
video of a turtle having a straw pulled out
of its nose, and then I go back next time and
they’re not using straws anymore,” she says.
Brown is delighted by the progress and
hopes that the movement will keep growing.
“It’s kind of hip and cool now,” she says.

Justify installed as
early Derby favorite
By BETH HARRIS
Kentucky Derby field
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Bob
Baffert had no chance to fret
over the Kentucky Derby
draw.
By the time the Hall of
Fame trainer managed to get
into Churchill Downs, the
process was halfway done
and Justify had landed in the
No. 7 post on Tuesday.
“We didn’t want the 1-hole,
that’s for sure,” the four-time
Derby winner said. “I was relieved when I saw him in
seven.”
Justify was made the early
3-1 favorite for the Derby, with
Europe-based Mendelssohn
the second choice in a full
field of 20 horses.
Six horses have won from
the No. 7 post, most recently
Street Sense in 2007.
“The only reason I’m the favorite is because I beat Bolt
d’Oro and he was the horse to
beat,” said Baffert, referring to
Justify’s three-length win
over his rival in the Santa
Anita Derby last month.
Justify is one of two horses
in Saturday’s 1¼-mile race who
didn’t race at age 2. The other
is 6-1 third choice Magnum
Moon. No horse since Apollo
in 1882 has won the Derby after not racing as a 2-year-old.
“I don’t buy into the Apollo
Curse or whatever at all,
mainly because Bob Baffert
and Todd Pletcher have got
the horses,” four-time Derbywinning trainer D. Wayne Lukas said. “Todd’s going to
have his [horse] ready, and
Baffert is going to have his.”

Justify is 3-0 in his brief career, winning by a combined
19 lengths. Magnum Moon is
4-0, winning the Arkansas
Derby and Rebel Stakes in his
last two starts.
“It’s one of the toughest
Derbies I’ve ever seen,” Baffert said. “All the important
horses got good draws.”
More history is working
against Mendelssohn. A
horse coming from Europe
has never won America’s biggest race. Trained by Irishman Aidan O’Brien, UAE
Derby winner Mendelssohn
is the 5-1 second choice. He

drew the No. 14 post.
O’Brien wasn’t at the draw
and Mendelssohn won’t hit
the Churchill Downs dirt
strip until Wednesday after
clearing quarantine. The colt
arrived Monday from Ireland.
Pletcher has a leading four
horses in the field: Magnum
Moon, 8-1 Audible, 12-1 Vino
Rosso and 30-1 Noble Indy.
He surpassed Lukas, his mentor, this year as the trainer
with the most starters in
Derby history with 52.
Pletcher won last year with
Always Dreaming.
The main starting gate
holds 14 horses and a six-stall
auxiliary gate is attached.
Horses are loaded into the
gate two at a time, beginning
with posts one and 11, which
spend the most time waiting
for the start.
“Having three of the four
horses in the auxiliary gate
wasn’t what we were hoping
for,” Pletcher said. “Sometimes you can work out good
trips from out there. We’ve
got four terrific riders.”
The co-fourth choices are
8-1: Audible and Bolt d’Oro.
Bolt d’Oro has won four of
six career starts for trainer
and owner Mick Ruis. The
colt drew the No. 11 post.
Firenze Fire drew the
dreaded No. 1 post and also
will be standing the longest.
Baffert’s other entry, 30-1
shot Solomini, drew the No. 17
post, which has never produced a Derby winner. — AP

As general manager Jeff
Gorton continues the
search to replace Alain Vigneault behind the Rangers’ bench, one source
close to Jim Montgomery
has told The Post that the
team “has been very impressed” by the University
of Denver coach.
A second source familiar
with the interview process
confirmed that assessment.
Montgomery, who will
turn 49 on June 30, appeared to be the front-runner for the Panthers job
last year before taking
himself out of the running.
Florida then hired Bob
Boughner. The Post has
learned that Montgomery,
last year, also rejected an
offer from the Kings to
join their staff as an assistant after Los Angeles
hired John Stevens to replace Darryl Sutter as head
coach.
“He’s had numerous
NHL interviews,” the original source said via text.
“[He’s] very well respected.”
Reports surfaced Tuesday morning that Montgomery, who coached the
Pioneers to the 2016-17
Rangers’ brass
‘impressed’ by
Denver coach
NCAA championship, has
emerged as a leading candidate for the head job in
Dallas following Ken
Hitchcock’s retirement. It
is unclear whether an offer
has been extended and
whether
Montgomery
would accept.
Montgomery, a Montreal
native, has no NHL experience as a coach. A proponent of up-tempo play and
known as detail-oriented
and an excellent communicator, Montgomery is a
believer in “The process,”
as he explained in a firstperson piece.
While college coaches
David Quinn of Boston
University and Scott Sandelin of Minnesota-Duluth
are known candidates for
the job on Broadway, the
Rangers and Gorton have
kept the search as confidential as possible. It is un-
known whether the team
is waiting to interview a
coach currently under
contract and working in
the playoffs at either the
AHL or NHL level.
“We’ve talked to a number of people and intend to
speak to some more,” the
GM told The Post on Saturday in Toronto. “That’s
about as far as I want to go
on that.”
The Rangers’ organizational meetings commence
Monday. Though there is
no timetable on the search,
it would be helpful to have
a coach in place while the
management team evaluates the current personnel
and plots its course for the
future.
In addition, the Stars’ interest in Montgomery may
accelerate the Blueshirts’
own process in this matter.

Hey Stitches, Yu Buttfumbler!
Listen to me ... Former Jets QB and USC grad Mark Sanchez offered some sage words of advice for the new Trojan
in town, Sam Darnold. “You’ve got to have the mentality
that football is your #1 priority.” No USC signal caller has
ever played in a Super Bowl and rumor has it that Broadway Joe Namath tried to deflect some of the pressure off
the Californian. “Just keep your head out of the right
guard’s ass and you’ll be fine.”
A thorn in Stitches side since we took over this gig, Yu
Darvish will be our play this afternoon at Wrigley. Why?
Why? Yu owes us one, if not three, and exits a solid start —
one unearned run in six innings of work. Do us a favor and
pick up your first win in your new uni against the visiting
Rockies — 10 units on the Cubs.
+$
Not Kuhl. Nats hit four homers off Chad Kuhl and
pounded the Pirates 12-4. Things got worse in Houston.
Justin Verlander shut out the Yanks through eight innings
but the Yanks bullpen did the same after Jordan Montgomery was removed after the first inning. Ken Giles came in,
Gary Sanchez hit one out and the Bombers beat the
champs 4-0. Heavy hit leaves us with +86 buckners.

IKE Francesa said Alex Rodriguez asked to be his first
guest on Francesa’s return to
WFAN. Francesa said he is getting
into the app business, because he
really thinks it is going to be the future. Francesa lamented that Tuesday would have been a really good
day to play golf.
MIKE’S OFF
Andrew
Marchand
What Francesa didn’t do on his
first show back was really explain
why he had an 18-month “retirement tour” only to return 4 ¹/₂
months later, telling his audience, it
was mostly “none of their business.”
Francesa only said a couple of
things of note. He reported he is on
a 2 ¹/₂-year contract and, tellingly,
spoke of only one specific offer
from Brent Musburger and his family’s Vegas Stats & Information Network, but added nothing else of
substance.
Francesa needed WFAN and
claimed an unnamed radio station
had interest. Francesa didn’t say
which station, but sources said
Francesa used a real or imagined
job at WOR as leverage to get his
old gig back. Mostly, Francesa acted
as if he had never left.
He is the overwhelming favorite
to win the spring ratings book over
ESPN’s “The Michael Kay Show,”
even though his program is not particularly good anymore. It hasn’t
been for a while. Francesa is dismissive of his audience and drones on,
but a lot of people don’t seem to
mind.
Francesa didn’t address what he
and Entercom president, David
Field, did to Chris Carlin, Maggie
Gray and Bart Scott, whose spot
he took. While CMB, in their new
1-3 p.m. time slot, mostly avoided
Francesa’s name during their show,
Carlin did say Francesa and his
teammates were on the “same
page” after a pre-show meeting.
Francesa, who took a pay cut to return, basically waved off the one
caller who told him, he “overplayed
his hand.”
By MIKE PUMA
The Mets are looking for
catching help, but aren’t
thrilled with the response.
With Jose Lobaton and
Tomas Nido struggling offensively and Kevin Plawecki at
least two weeks away from
rejoining the team as he rehabs a broken left hand, general manager Sandy Alderson
acknowledged Tuesday he
has looked at potential “incremental” and “significant”
upgrades at catcher.
On the high end, the sexiest
name is J.T. Realmuto, but the
Mets, according to sources,
GOOD OLD DAYS: Mike Francesa (left) was back on the air Tuesday just months after supposedly starting his retirement, and The Post’s Andrew Marchand writes it’s obvious how much Francesa misses working with former partner Chris “Mad Dog” Russo (right).
Getty Images
Part of Francesa’s appeal, even at
64, is how ridiculous he is, which is
funny — intentionally or not. Francesa claimed A-Rod asked to be the
first guest on this return show and
Francesa responded, “Why not?”
It is hard to believe Rodriguez
ever said anything like, “Jennifer
Lopez, did you hear about ‘Mike’s
On’? I’ve got to be the first guest.
Hopefully, Mike will let me be the
first guest. I’m going to text him.”
When he did appear, Rodriguez
did say New York sports needed
Francesa back. It was a shot — intentional or not — at A-Rod’s ESPN
teammate, Kay, who had ripped Rodriguez on Monday. Rodriguez
didn’t say he asked to be Francesa’s
first guest, but that when Francesa
“retired,” he said he would appear
on the host’s next venture.
A theme of the show was how
Francesa has noticed apps are
where everything is going regarding video and audio.
“Apps are the future,” Francesa
said.
Who knew? Francesa said his app
is due in August.
“There are going to be things that
haven’t been done before,” he said.
For that to be true, someone will
have to work, and there continued
to be a laziness to Francesa’s show.
When he had Eli Manning on, he
failed to ask even one question specifically about Saquon Barkley.
Also, wouldn’t it have been nice to
know what Manning thought leading up to the draft and on the big
night? It wasn’t asked.
Manning snapped off the best line
of the show, kidding Francesa,
“That was the shortest retirement
I’ve ever seen.”
What Francesa really misses is
Chris “Mad Dog” Russo. Russo took
off for SiriusXM a little less than a
decade ago, because he couldn’t
stand working with his partner of almost 20 years any longer. The two
have had reunions and, when they
do, Russo’s energy brings out a more
lively Francesa. That is the shame of
Francesa’s post-retirement retreat.
He should be doing something with
Russo, even if it were part-time.
That’s where he really belongs.
By himself, Francesa just drones
on, living on reputation, more than
anything else. But, he is right, it is a
different world. It is hard for a talk
show host to stick out, because everyone with these new up-andcoming apps has a voice.
Francesa is still a big deal, because
of his history, but listening to all 3 ¹/₂
hours of his show felt more like
work than joy. And it seemed he
owed his loyal listeners a little more.

Mets struggling to get upgrade at catcher
have been led to believe the
Marlins won’t deal the AllStar catcher. On a lower
scale, names such as Wilson
Ramos and Blake Swihart
could make sense.
“We have looked at significant improvement and we
just don’t think that is available,” Alderson said before
the Mets lost 3-2 to the
Braves at Citi Field.
Alderson was asked if the
price, in terms of players and
dollars, was the hang-up.
METS NOTES
“We have never gotten to
the stage in discussions
where we were able to ascertain the price,” Alderson said.
“Catching is a very important
position. There is a scarcity
at that position. Most teams
don’t have two good ones and
even teams that are out of it
or think they will be still have
to run a catcher out there every day, and if they trade one
and they have an injury the
next day as we did, they are
in a box.
“Even in those situations
where teams aren’t necessarily competing the catchers
are still a very valuable commodity to them. We made
some inquiries.”
Alderson said he is happy
with how Lobaton and Nido
have performed defensively,
so an “incremental” upgrade
might be a risk, given that a
new catcher won’t know the
Mets’ pitching staff and will
not have spent spring training with the team.
“Incremental
improvement, we are a little bit cautious,” Alderson said.
Steven Matz was “ten➤

session Sunday, eliminating
the possibility he could be
used from the bullpen on
Tuesday if needed, as manager Mickey Callaway had
hoped, but Matz remains on

After Gray went six innings
and allowed two runs against
the Astros in a 2-1 loss Monday night, Gray was asked
what he likes about having
Romine behind the plate.
“He adapts to the game and
there is constant communication,’’ said Gray, whose answer was taken by some as a
knock on Sanchez.
Asked about the possibility
of Boone designating Romine
as Gray’s personal catcher,
Sanchez didn’t hesitate.
“This is a team here so
what’s best for the team it’s
got to be,’’ Sanchez said.
Gray is 1-1 with a 3.92 ERA
and a .699 OPS in four games
with Romine. Gray is 0-1 with
a 15.63 ERA and a 1.069 OPS
in two starts with Sanchez.
Boone said when the
schedule dictates a chance to
have Romine catch Gray he
would do it with the hope
Gray can continue to improve as he did Monday
night, in easily his best start
this season.
Gray’s next start is a day

bet Romine will be catching.

History
harsh to
Darnold
jersey
By ZACH BRAZILLER
Sam Darnold isn’t shying away from the Jets’
ugly quarterback history.
The first-round draft
choice will be wearing
the same number — 14
— as so many past disappointments at the position, the team announced
on Tuesday afternoon.
Q u a r te r ba c k s Ne i l
O’Donnell, Richard Todd
and Glenn Foley (his rookie year) all wore No. 14.
The six previous Jets quarterbacks to wear No. 14
(which also includes
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Greg
McElroy and Troy Taylor) produced a combined 63-78-1 record and
collectively threw more
interceptions (187) than
touchdown passes (177).
Todd did lead the Jets
to the 1983 AFC Championship game, but threw
five interceptions in a
loss to the Dolphins.
The most recent quarterback to wear the number was Fitzpatrick in
2015-16. The veteran had
a huge season in 2015,
nearly leading the Jets to
the playoffs, by throwing a franchise-record
31 touchdown passes,
but regressed to career
norms the following year
as the Jets went 5-11.
Darnold wore the jersey number in his two
years at USC, where the
third-overall pick in the
draft racked up a 20-4
mark, and threw for 4,143
yards and 26 touchdowns
in 14 games as a redshirt
sophomore.

Eli feared for future following
By PAUL SCHWARTZ
As the days and weeks moved
on and the losses kept mounting
during the dreary 2017 season, Eli
Manning admitted, for the first
time in his Giants career, he worried the end was near.
“For the first time ever, I didn’t
know what the future held,’’ Manning said Tuesday afternoon on
WFAN. “I tried not to overthink it
and kind of draw conclusions off
the information I didn’t know. I
just had to say ‘I’m gonna be positive through the end of the season
and the offseason’ and just work
out and be ready for whatever is
thrown at me.’’
Manning’s head coach (Ben
McAdoo) and the general manager (Jerry Reese) were fired
a month before the 3-13 season
came to an end. A conversa-
tion with new general manager
Dave Gettleman and a talk with
co-owner John Mara finally convinced a relieved Manning he
would return for a 15th season
with the Giants.
“I was very excited to hear the
news from Mr. Gettleman and Mr.
Mara that they would want me
back,’’ Manning said, “and knew
I was going to work extremely
hard to keep my job. When you
almost lose something, it makes
you appreciate it even more, and
that’s certainly the case here. I
love being the quarterback of the
New York Giants, and I want to be
the quarterback and win games
for this organization and this fan
base and my teammates. That’s
what my energy is going toward,
my commitment to doing what it
takes to learn this offense and win
some more games.’’
Not only did management say
they wanted him back, drastic
steps were taken to help assure
this season is better than the last
one for Manning. With the No. 2
pick in the draft, the Giants
selected running back Saquon
Barkley, a formidable running
and passing gift to Manning. The
offensive line was upgraded with
the signing of left tackle Nate Solder and the second-round draft
pick of guard Will Hernandez.
Odell Beckham Jr. is expected
to make a full recovery from a
fractured right ankle.

said. “It’s easy to get excited
about your on-paper team,
that’s the guys you have on
the roster, just because of

Flowers’ agent hire may bring resolution to
By PAUL SCHWARTZ
Ereck Flowers was gone but not
forgotten by the Giants, and perhaps
this most recent development will
knock some sense into the missing
offensive lineman and prompt him to
finally get to work.
Flowers did not have an agent in
his first three NFL seasons — his
father, Everald, was listed as his representation. That situation changed
Tuesday when Drew Rosenhaus
announced Flowers is now one
of his clients. Rosenhaus has one
of the largest player rosters in the
league and has had many dealings
with the Giants over the years.
It is in Flowers’ best interest to
end his boycott of the voluntary
workouts, and hiring
Rosenhaus could be
a harbinger of Flowers’ arrival at the
team facility in East
Rutherford, N.J.
Or else, hiring
Rosenhaus means
he will try to force
Flowers
the Giants to trade
Flowers. Good luck
with that. The Giants got a few calls
regarding Flowers during the draft
but, as they suspected, no one was
offering much of anything for him.
“Really the only comment is I have
a good relationship with the organization, and I will be speaking with
them soon about
Ereck,’’ Rosenhaus
told The Post in an
email.
The Giants are
viewing this as a
positive step, if only
because now there
is someone to speak
Rosenhaus w i t h r e g a r d i n g
Flowers, who is not
exactly a master in the art of communication.
Flowers is on the books for $2.39
million this season and counts $4.57
million on the salary cap. Before
the 2018 season, the Giants must
decide if they will pick up the fifthyear option on Flowers, which is
worth $12.5 million for the 2019 season. There is no conceivable way
the Giants will do that.
Flowers, who turned 24 last week,
was ousted from the starting left
tackle job he held — shakily — his
first three years when Nate Solder
was signed away from the Patriots
in a deal worth $62 million. Flowers
was informed he was moving to the
right side of the offensive line and
would compete for the starting right
tackle spot — he would not be handed anything.
His response was to hunker down
in Florida and work out on his own,
prompting an irritated general manager Dave Gettleman to say, “He’s in
Miami and we’re here. He decided not
benching last year
main thing, and that’s playing
football and winning football
games and keep it about that,’’
Manning said. “In New York
everything gets blown up a little bit, we just got to focus on
not making distractions when
you don’t need distractions.
Have the conversation be about
our good play and not about
other things that may hurt the
team or draw the focus away
from what we’re doing as
a team. That’s the
mindset. We got
to go out there
and kind of
do our talking on the
field.’’

WHAT, ME WORRY? Eli Manning
admitted on WFAN on Tuesday
that he became worried about
his future when he was benched
last season. He has no such
worries going into this season,
heading into camp as the firm
starter and with the strong
backing of a new coach and GM.
offseason standoff
to come. He’s an adult and he has the
ability to make decisions on his own.’’
Rosenhaus will now be helping
Flowers make those decisions. Getting him back in the Giants’ building
would be the first step toward remaking his career at right tackle. There is
a new playbook to learn, a new offensive line coach (Hal Hunter) to get to
know, a new head coach (Pat Shurmur) to feel out and a new offensive
coordinator (Mike Shula) to please.
The Giants have been at it since
their program opened up April 9.
It is all voluntary and he cannot be
fined for his absence, but the Giants
are issuing mental demerits, and
they are taking a dim view of Flowers’ commitment, or lack thereof.
“Football’s what we do, and we
have the ability to practice together
and be together,’’ Shurmur said. “It’s
almost to the point where, you can
go away and get yourself fit and
ready for the season and trained
up, but there’s an element of doing
it together where ... I think when
you train next to somebody, you
train with people then you naturally
challenge one another and you help
make each other better. Because this
is the ultimate team sport, as many
times as the team can be together
it only helps. It just does. There’s
that chemistry that gets built when
you’re working and training together. Sometimes you can’t quantify it,
it just plays out in the end.’’
Pats had Giant deal
for Mayfield: agent
By HOWIE KUSSOY
The Patriots were prepared to
land Tom Brady’s successor — and
stick it to the Jets — all at once.
If Baker Mayfield had not
been selected by the Browns
with the first-overall pick in
the draft, Mayfield’s agent, Jack
Mills, said New England was
going to try to trade with the
Giants for the second pick, in
order to take the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback.
“We knew that the Jets at
[No.] 3 was the bottom line,”
Mills said on NFL reporter
Andrew Brandt’s podcast. “We
had another team that said, ‘You
may get a big surprise on draft
day at No. 2 if he is available.’
And that team was the Patriots.”
Multiple teams that met with
Mayfield before the draft were
“well aware” Mayfield’s group
believed the Patriots were truly
interested in taking him — following last season’s trades of Jimmy
Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett.
Instead, Brady will be 41 entering next season, with 32-year-old
Brian Hoyer the only other quarterback on the Pats’ roster.
The drama between Kawhi
Leonard and the Spurs could
end with the superstar in a
much bigger spotlight.
After Leonard missed all but
nine games this season with a
right quadriceps injury — and
remained in New York to rehab
away from the only franchise
for which he ever has played —
the Spurs have become concerned that the season-long
squabble between the player
and team is linked to a desire
among Leonard’s advisers to
get him traded to a larger market — such as
New
York,
Philadelphia
or his hometown of Los
Angeles
—
according to
multiple
sources in an
ESPN report.
The soonKAWHI
to-be 27-yearLEONARD old has a year
remaining on his contract but is
eligible to receive a five-year,
$219 million extension this offseason. However, it is unclear
whether the small-market
Spurs wish to offer the supermax deal — especially after
Leonard’s actions, and inaction,
this season — and it is also unclear whether Leonard would
accept an offer, if presented.
The Clippers are one of several teams that reportedly already have planned a trade
package if Leonard becomes
available. The Knicks likely
would struggle to make an attractive offer that doesn’t include Kristaps Porzingis, and
the Nets likely don’t have
enough talent to compete with
other potential trades.
Spurs general manager R.C.
Buford is “constantly losing
sleep over how and why the relationship with Leonard has
disintegrated,” according to
the ESPN report, stemming
from disagreement between
the Spurs and outside doctors
— sought by Leonard’s agent,
Mitch Frankel, and uncle, Dennis Robertson — about the severity and cause of Leonard’s
injury, and how to treat it.
“Kawhi is the same person,” a
league source with direct
knowledge of the situation told
ESPN. “The only thing that has
changed about him is the people speaking for him now.”

message and working extremely
hard to make sure we’re getting better and we have a great
understanding.’’

FIZ SHOW
Ex-Grizz coach would be right answer
T
HE BAKE-OFF to determine the Knicks’ new head
coach has been completed,
and now the team’s brain trust of
Steve Mills and Scott Perry — let’s
call that two-headed cerebellum
PerryMills, for short — have 11
names to sift through.
The Knicks have promised transparency in this process, and we’ve
gotten that. What we haven’t gotten is the kind of no-brainer choice
that might have been available two
years ago, when Jeff Hornacek was
hired and Phil Jackson never even
bothered to call Tom Thibodeau;
or next year, when Doc Rivers will
be a free agent.
This will only be the most important decision of the PerryMills Era,
for now and for the coming couple
of years in which growing pains
will be required but incremental
improvement will be essential.
Taking that into account, here is
the way this 11-candidate derby
ought to shake out.
The winner: David Fizdale
None of the candidates checks
every box. And Fizdale will have
on his permanent record an established inability to work with Marc
Mike Vaccaro
Gasol in Memphis, which ultimately cost him his job with the
Grizzlies 19 games into this season
despite going 43-39 and taking the
Spurs to six hard-fought games in
the playoffs in 2016-17.
Still, the things that made Fizdale such an attractive candidate
to Memphis in the first place are
still in place: He was a key member
of Erik Spoelstra’s staff in Miami
when the Heat were the class of
the Eastern Conference. And of the
many things Spoelstra said recently
gushing about Fizdale was this:
“He’s a brilliant basketball mind
that has exceptional, gold-standard
level communication skills.”
His firing sparked a wave of outrage across the NBA’s player ranks,
not only from LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Hassan Whiteside,
who played under him in Miami,
BREAKING DOWN THE FIELD
DAVID BLATT
Pro: Should mesh with Steve Mills
(they were teammates at Princeton),
and he’s won everywhere he’s gone.
He reached the NBA Finals in his only
full season with the Cavaliers. Just the
second coach to win the Euroleague,
EuroBasket EuroCup and Olympic
medals.
Con: He never connected with LeBron
James, and he hasn’t coached in the
NBA since getting fired in January 2016.
MIKE BUDENHOLZER
Pro: The 2014-15 NBA Coach of the Year
may well be the most accomplished
coach on the market. Well-regarded in
terms of player development.
Con: Wasn’t interested in tanking in
Atlanta, and likely wouldn’t have been
in Phoenix, where he pulled his name
from consideration. Likely would want
to keep the rebuild to a minimum.
Competition: Bucks
DAVID FIZDALE
Pro: Other than Budenholzer, likely
regarded as the best coach on the
market. Had some success in Memphis
and would likely excel at player
development.
but also from the diverse likes of
Isaiah Thomas, Damian Lillard,
Vince Carter and Jared Dudley,
proving his appeal as a players’
coach wasn’t damaged much by his
personality conflict with Gasol (and
it should be noted the Grizz were
far worse after Fizdale was let go).
The runner-up:
Mike Budenholzer
It was a nice surprise (for the
Knicks, if not for Budenholzer) that
he winds up available to be a candidate for the job, and there is no
denying he performed some wonders with the Hawks — the 2014-15
team that went 60-22 and won two
playoff series before getting swept
by the Cavaliers may have been one
of the great coaching accomplishments in the NBA in the last 30
years. If PerryMills picked Budenholzer over Fizdale, it would be
almost as enlightened a choice.
The bronze: Jerry Stackhouse
There are so many good qualities attached to Stackhouse, whose
18 years as a player (following a
high-profile college career at North
Carolina) give him instant credibility with players, and whose
willingness to pay his dues in the
G-League gives him just as much
appeal to NBA brass. The team that
has the guts to pull the trigger on
Stack may well be getting a jackpot.
4. Mark Jackson
Sure, it would make for a wonderful coming-home story, but
there’s simply too much baggage
remaining from his time with the
Warriors, and too much probability
that he would clash with PerryMills
and every other corporate suit he’d
have to deal with at the Garden.
Besides, if what the Knicks wanted
was a legit alumni candidate, they
would’ve talked to Patrick Ewing,
who’s a much better choice.
5. David Blatt
He has had too much success
on too many levels to think he
wouldn’t be successful — and,
besides, you can qualify this any
way you like, but he is 1-for-1 in
making the NBA Finals in his only
full year as a head coach. But you
sense his time has passed.
6. Mike Woodson
Sure, just saying his name brought
gales of laughter (or wails of night
terrors) from Knicks fans, and a
Woodson 2.0 probably had little
chance
of ga i n i n g
traction. Still,
it is worth pointing out, the Knicks were
109-79 on his watch, a winning percentage greater than Red Holzman’s.
7. Kenny Smith
If for no other reason than the
jokes would have been limitless
when you consider that, while the
Jet is now known best for his TNT
studio work, he also presently
moonlights as the GM of the Washington Generals. Yes, those Washington Generals.
8. Mike Brown
Bet you didn’t know that his .620
winning percentage as an NBA
coach is higher than (among others) Larry Brown, Jerry Sloan and
Doc Rivers.
9-11 (in no particular order):
Juwan Howard, James
Borrego, Jay Larranaga
Good for PerryMills to give
these names of the future the
experience of an interview.
Wrong team at the wrong time to
go with a long shot, though.

competition for some) of each as David Blatt, Mike Budenholzer and David Fizdale have emerged as the favorites:
Con: Got canned in Memphis after
clashing with center Marc Gasol.
Managing stars is a huge part of the
NBA.
Competition: Bucks and Suns
Then rest of the field, listed
alphabetically
JAMES BORREGO
Pro : Another branch off the highly
successful Spurs tree. He’s got a rare
blend of youth and experience, getting
his first job under Gregg Popovich
when he was just 26.
Con: Despite getting his first NBA job in
2003, at 40 he’s still never been a head
coach.
Competition: Suns
MIKE BROWN
Pro: Before he became a Golden State
assistant, he had plenty of headcoaching experience with Cleveland
and the Lakers. He went 11-0 with the
Warriors in the 2017 playoffs while
Steve Kerr was out with chronic pain.
Con: Known for his defensive schemes,
his offenses left something to be
desired.
JUWAN HOWARD
Pro: Has impressed during his time in
Miami, first as a player from
2010-13 and now as an assistant coach.
He handled the Heat’s NBA Summer
League team last summer.
Con: Howard still needs more
seasoning.
MARK JACKSON
Pro: Clearly a fan favorite, born and
bred in Brooklyn, starring at St. John’s
and playing point guard from the
Knicks from 1987-92 and 2001-02.
Con: After his ouster in Golden
State, questions remain about how
he’d develop the Knicks younger
players, and how he’d get along with
ownership and the front office.
JAY LARRANAGA
Pro: He’s been molded by one of the
best in Boston’s Brad Stevens, serving
as the Celtics’ lead assistant.
Con: He won’t have the wealth of talent
to mold he did in Boston, or experience
as an NBA coach to draw upon.
Competition: Hornets
JERRY STACKHOUSE
Pro: Coaching Raptors 905 to a
G-League championship and another
berth in the finals, he’s shown the
ability to develop younger players.
Con: While he spent 18 years as an
NBA player, his experience isn’t even
on an NBA bench.
Competition: Magic, Hornets
KENNY SMITH
Pro: He had a successful playing
career from 1987-97 and has stayed
current, working as an analyst for
TNT.
Con: Smith has never coached
in the NBA. Not as a head coach,
lead assistant, nothing.
MIKE WOODSON
Pro: He’s a Clippers assistant,
but is already proven in
the job. His 54-28 Knicks
squad in 2012-13 was
their most recent playoff
appearance, their best
win total since 1996-97,
and first Atlantic Division
crown since 1993-94.
Con: His isolation-heavy
ball-stopping offense is
exactly the opposite
of the way the
league is going.

Brown interviews
as hire nears

The Knicks have wrapped up
interviews for their head-coaching
position — barring any unforeseen last-minute candidate — and
should have a hire within the week,
The Post confirmed.
Warriors assistant Mike Brown
was the final interviewee, although
a source cautioned “the situation
is still fluid.”
Ex-Hawks coach Mike
Budenzholzer, former
Cavs coach David
Blatt and ex-Grizzlies coach David
Fizdale are believed
to be the favorites.

Knicks no compensation after he
parted ways with
the Hawks, developed Knicks guard
Tim Hardaway
Jr. in Atlanta. The
2014-15 NBA Coach
of the Year is the top
coach on the market,
pursued by both Milwaukee and Phoenix. Nets forward
DeMarre Carroll —
who played two seasons under Budenholzer in Atlanta — told
The Post his former
mentor would be an
ideal fit in the Garden.
“The biggest thing is
he’d kind of similar to
Kenny [Atkinson, Nets
coach] in his communication skills, how he
can talk to his players,
talk about life situations,
what’s going on with family, what’s going on outside
basketball,” Carroll said.
“He gives you that respect, and
you know he genuinely cares
about you not just on the court but
off the court, too.”
Budenholzer — 213-197 in five
years in Atlanta — has a reputation for player development and
nurturing relationships. After he
missed the playoffs for the first
time this season with Atlanta in
tank mode, Carroll understood
why Budenholzer took his name
out of the running in Phoenix,
where a similar long rebuild could
be in order. The Bucks (with
Giannis Antetokounmpo), though,
remain as competition for Budenholzer’s services.
“That’s why the Knick job is
more suitable for him than Phoenix,” Carroll said. “[Kristaps] Porzingis is a bona fide four, and he’ll
have some other guys he can develop. You had that in Atlanta. You
had [point guard] Dennis Schroder
to develop and you start with some
veterans and bring the young guys
down path. That’s why the Knicks
are a better job for him. … That’s
the biggest thing; he can develop
guys.
“He can bring veteran guys
and bring a winning culture, and
develop the young guys. The
Knicks would definitely be better for him, more suitable for him
with those kind of players to mesh
with the young guys instead of
going strictly young. Even Philly
with their young core of Joel
Embiid and Ben Simmons, without adding JJ Redick, Ersan Ilyasova, Marco Belinelli, they don’t
make the playoffs and get over the
hump. That’s why the Knicks are
more suitable.”
With the Knicks building around
Porzingis — rehabbing from a torn
ACL — they’re prioritizing a coach
who is in tune with today’s young
players. They went 29-53, but have
their own draft pick, significant
cap space in 2019 and a chance at
a reasonable turnaround time with
the right coach at the helm.
“I learned a lot from Bud in my
time there, and I continue to watch
him and see what they’re doing
and keep an eye on him,” Atkinson
said last season. When asked what
stood out about the way his former
boss runs a team, he replied, “Culture. That encompasses a lot of
things, how to build a program and
all the little things, the details that
go into that.
“And just caring. Bud is a caring
person. He cares for his players,
cares for his staff. Personally, he
pushed me to be a better coach.
Sometimes, you’re a head coach
and you have your staff and they do
their thing. But I think Bud always
challenged me. He said, ‘I need
more from you. I need more.’ ”

Thumb drive:
Yoenis breaks out
after injury scare
By FRED KERBER
Yoenis Cespedes had worked out
at Citi Field the previous day and
gave a thumbs up on his availability
for the Mets’ game with the Braves
on Tuesday.
Cespedes held up his end. But for
much of the night, the rest of the offense was all thumbs.
“We just didn’t get anybody on
base in front of him,” manager
Mickey Callaway said.
Cespedes homered as part of a
three-hit night and threw out a runner at home, but he wasn’t enough to
overcome the youthful Braves whose
3-2 victory pulled them within a half
game of the first-place Mets in the
National League East.
“You realize hitters like that are going
to hit mistakes and I think I made three
mistakes,” Braves’ 20-year-old starter
and winner Mike Soroka, who made his
major league debut, said of Cespedes.
The Mets managed nine hits, including seven singles, and were held
scoreless through five innings by Soroka. Can’t blame Cespedes, who left
the clubhouse before the media arrived postgame. The team said he
had a family matter.
The Mets were concerned Cespedes
might miss time after he jammed his
left thumb on a headfirst slide into
third on a stolen base Sunday. X-rays
were negative but when “Mets” and
“injury” collide in the same sentence, it
often is catastrophic.
General manager Sandy Alderson
said before the game that Cespedes hit
off a tee and played catch Monday.
Callaway noted Cespedes was removed from Sunday’s game more as a
“precaution” than anything else.
“That guy is an animal,” said Mets
starter and loser Noah Syndergaard.
“It’s going to take a lot more than
just a little thumb issue to take him
out of the lineup. It’s a lot of fun
watching him hit the ball all over the
ballpark, especially with as much
conviction as he does. So he is a huge
piece to our lineup and I look forward to seeing him play more often.”
Cespedes rapped a two-out single in
the first, led off the fourth with a single, socked his seventh homer in the
sixth with one out. Cespedes drilled a
first-pitch slider from Soroka to left.
He flied to center in the eighth, the
only time there was a runner on for
him. Thumb seemed good.
“I didn’t get any of that before the
game,” Soroka said of the thumb matter.
Cespedes, who earned his third outfield assist this season, 66th of his career, when he nailed Kurt Suzuki trying to score from second on a single in
the seventh, is on a seven-game hit
streak, hitting .440 (11-of-25) with
three homers and eight RBIs in that
span. No wonder he wanted to play.
“We had seen that coming,” Callaway said of the Cespedes bust-out.
“He had put together some great atbats and tonight was obviously really
good. He just missed another one,
got under it in that last at-bat.”

PARTY FOUL
By MIKE PUMA
If Matt Harvey’s pitching hasn’t been
underwhelming enough, his off-field ventures are again becoming a potential problem for the Mets.
A day after Page Six reported Harvey
traveled to Los Angeles for a night of partying following the team’s arrival in San
Diego last week, general manager Sandy
Alderson acknowledged the pitcher’s
nocturnal habits can be a problem.
And the reaction in the clubhouse
to Harvey was equally unsympathetic.
“It’s just, what are you doing?”
one Mets player said.
Harvey pitched one inning in relief the night after his sighting in Los
Angeles and allowed one run on a
homer in the team’s victory over the
Padres.
“I think it can be a problem if it affects a
player’s or a pitcher’s preparation for work
the following day or the next several days,
and I am not sure that was the case here,”
Alderson said Tuesday. “[But] I think the
other thing I have tried to keep in mind is
pitching out of the bullpen is different
than pitching out of the rotation, and part
of the preparation for that role is recognizing you can pitch any day at any time, and
as a result you have to be a little more conscientious about what else is going on in
your life in order to be prepared on a moment’s notice to pitch.
“That is part of the realization that

Harvey’s off-field antics
could become ‘problem’
can, ‘Yeah, it can be a problem.’ I don’t
think it was in this case.”
Alderson was asked if he was upset by
the Page Six report.
“Usually I get upset if a report is unexpected, so I guess the short answer is no,”
Alderson said.
And the GM noted that Harvey, at this
point in his controversial career, is always
in the public’s eye.
“It’s like a borderline pitch [for a batter],” Alderson said. “In his case it always
gets called a strike. He probably learned
something from it.”
Last season Harvey was suspended by
the team, forcing him to miss a start, after
he failed to show up for a game at Citi
Field. Harvey, who had attempted to call in
sick, later acknowledged he had stayed out
late the night before.
Harvey was also absent from a workout
at Citi Field before the 2015 NLDS, indicating he had gotten caught in traffic.
Manager Mickey Callaway said he met
with Harvey on Tuesday and told the
pitcher to avoid becoming a distraction.
“It is bad in the sense that it’s getting
publicity,” Callaway said. “Matt has to be
aware of that. The things he does, right or
wrong, are going to be brought to the forefront, and we have to make sure it’s never
a distraction for him or the team.”
Harvey, who is 0-2 with a 5.76 ERA, has
appeared in three games in relief since his
reassignment from the rotation. Team officials are still hopeful for a turnaround that
would allow him to possibly rejoin the
starting rotation. Callaway was asked if
the bullpen move was designed at getting
Harvey right or helping the team.
“It’s really just to help our team in general,” Callaway said. “Whether it’s all of a
sudden he becomes this big weapon in the
bullpen or he has to go back into the rotation to give us some meaningful starts
this year, so I think there is not one main
goal. We have to work diligently every
day to make him a better version of
what he’s been and kind of go from
there and see what happens.”
Alderson would like to see Harvey view the bullpen role as more
an opportunity than a demotion.
“I think he understands at
this point that while the bullpen, he might view it as a relegation in some way, that his
only way back to the rotation is through the bullpen
and being successful in a
meaningful role in the pen,” Alderson said.
Harvey needs to do the same for him- the following several days,’’ Alderson said.

“The other thing is that Matt has to understand that people always notice what he

so he probably learned something from it.’’
Asked if he was upset about the report,
Alderson said, “I get upset if the report is
unexpected. So I guess the short answer
is no.’’
It’s not like this is the first time Harvey
has been on Page Six.
That’s even more reason for Harvey to
take this bullpen demotion more seriously
and be at his best.
Harvey will be a free agent after the season. Since the start of the 2016 season Harvey is a combined 9-19 with a 5.78 ERA
over 210 innings pitched, essentially what
used to be a full season for a starter.
This demotion hurt. That’s understandable. The next demotion will hurt much
more.
Matt Harvey needs to think this his last
shot and give it his best shot.
Dark Knight must find way to rise to occasion
W
HETHER he is the Dark Knight on
the mound or partying deep into
the dark night, Matt Harvey finds
his way into the eye of the storm.
That is a result of how he goes about his
business. All this wears on a team.
How about if Harvey takes this latest demotion and controversy and handles it
this way: Approach it like this is your last
shot. It might be. Certainly with the Mets.
Do what is best for your team, and your
free agency.
Suck it up, pitch out of the bullpen with
a purpose. Pitch like you must prove yourself every inning. Be smart. While you are
at it, turn down the night life.
That is essentially what Sandy Alderson
said Tuesday at Citi Field on a night the
Mets had little energy and lost to the
Braves, 3-2. Check out these words Mickey
Callaway told The Post last week in the
dugout in St. Louis: “Dave Eiland and I are
never going to quit on Matt Harvey.’’
They are giving it their best shot to try
to salvage Harvey as a pitcher and, yes, as
a starter.

on 10 hits over six innings, walks off the mound during the
first inning of Mets’ 3-2 loss to the Braves.
Anthony J. Causi
Sunday in San Diego. But
Cespedes, who had departed the previous game
for precautionary reasons,
convinced team officials he
could play after working out
Monday at Citi Field.
Cespedes helped bail out
Jerry Blevins and AJ Ramos
in the seventh by throwing a
strike to the plate that
nailed Kurt Suzuki attempting to score on Ryan Flaherty’s single. The assist
was Cespedes’ third this
season.
Among the slumping is
Amed Rosario, who went
hitless in four at-bats, including a strikeout in the
ninth with runners on second and third with the Mets
behind 3-1.
“I’ve had days that weren’t
good, I have had my bad
weeks,” said Rosario, who is
stuck with a .580 OPS. “But I
am giving 100 percent on
the field to be better.”
The Mets’ best early
chance against Soroka came
in the fourth, following singles by Cespedes and Todd
Frazier. But Adrian Gonzalez killed the inning by hit-
ting into a double play.
Syndergaard lasted six innings, consisting of 91
pitches, in which he allowed
10 hits and one walk with a
hit batter without any further damage. The 10 hits allowed tied a career high.
The Braves sent eight batters to the plate against Syndergaard in the first and
scored three runs. Mets
killer Freddie Freeman delivered most of the damage
with a two-run double that
accounted for the first two
runs.
Acuna doubled Albies to
third, helping ignite the
rally. Nick Markakis followed Freeman’s double
with an RBI single, giving
the Braves four hits and
three runs before Syndergaard had recorded an out.
Soroka came to bat eighth in
the inning, giving him the
rare distinction for a pitcher
of receiving his first majorleague at-bat before throwing his first pitch.
“It seems like every fastball I threw just kinda got
whacked,” Syndergaard said.

The Mets (17-10) haven’t
won consecutive games
since April 13. And these upand-comers from Atlanta
have won three of the four
meetings between the teams
this season.
It got interesting in the
ninth, but the Mets never received the big hit they
needed against Arodys Vizcaino. Wilmer Flores’
RBI ground out brought
in a run before Jose
Reyes was retired
with the tying run
at second base to
end the game.
“This loss is
really just all
on me,” Syndergaard
said.
“They came
out aggressive,
ambushed me.
I have to tip
my hot to
them on that.
The first inning
I couldn’t grip the
ball all that well so I
was trying to force
pitches in there as opposed to being free and easy
and letting that happen.”
In his big-league debut,
right-hander Mike Soroka
allowed one run on six hits
over six innings for the
Braves (17-11), who put the
three youngest players in
the major leagues on the
field, with Ozzie Albies (21
years, 114 days) and Ronald
Acuna Jr. (20, years, 134
days), in the lineup. Soroka
was 20 years, 270 days.
“They play the game the
right way,” manager Mickey
Callaway said. “They are a
real good team.”
Yoenis Cespedes launched
a solo homer, his seventh of
the season, in the sixth that
gave the Mets their first run.
It was the third hit of the
night for Cespedes, who
jammed his left thumb
sliding into third base

CLEARED FOR LIFTOFF: Astros outfielder George Springer
can only watch as a three-run homer by Gary Sanchez lands
beyond the center-field wall in the ninth inning of the Yankees’
4-0 victory in Houston on Tuesday.

HOUSTON — Joe Torre has
been out of the Yankees manager’s
office for more than a decade, but
his recipe for beating elite starting
pitchers still works.
No matter how many times
Torre was asked what the formula
was to beat Hall of Famer Pedro
Martinez, he never veered from
the plan.
“The key is to stay with him,
match him,’’ Torre said so often it became part of the language describing
the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry.
Tuesday night at Minute Maid
Park against the best team in baseball, the Yankees channeled Torre
and came away with a pulsating,
4-0 victory over the Astros in
front of 34,386 thanks to a sensational bullpen effort and Gary
Sanchez’ monstrous three-run
homer in the ninth inning.
The Yankees’ 10th win in 11 games
may have come with an expensive
price tag, however, as starter Jordan
Montgomery left after a perfect
first inning with a tender left elbow.
He will travel to New York on
Wednesday and be examined by Dr.
Chris Ahmad. If Montgomery, who
said he didn’t believe the problem
was serious, is lost for an extended
stretch it would be a serious blow
to the Yankees.
Justin Verlander played the role
of Martinez on Tuesday and he
blanked the Yankees through eight
innings and tied a career high by
striking out 14. Because Verlander’s mates didn’t score against
Montgomery, Domingo German,
Chad Green, Dellin Betances and

David Robertson, the game was
scoreless until the ninth when Ken
Giles surfaced and torched Verlander’s masterpiece.
Aaron Judge led off the ninth
with a single to right and Didi Gregorius doubled to left center. With
first base open and one out after
Giancarlo Stanton’s third whiff of
the night, Astros manager A.J.
Hinch opted to pitch to Sanchez,
the Yankees’ most complete hitter
despite starting the night with a
.202 average. One pitch after pitching coach Brent Strom went to the
mound, Sanchez drove a slider off
the back wall in center for a gamewinning home run that was measured at 423 feet and, one batter
later, was followed by Giles punching himself in the face as he entered the Houston dugout.
“I was looking for something I
could hit,’’ Sanchez said of his
eighth homer which hiked his RBI
total to 27.
The win went to Robertson (2-1),
evened the four-game series at 1-1
and, coupled with the AL Eastleading Red Sox losing, cut the
Yankees’ deficit to two lengths.
Aroldis Chapman recorded the final three outs in a non-save situation.
The Astros’ parade of stud
pitchers started with Charlie Morton and Verlander. It doesn’t get
easier with Dallas Keuchel and

ON DECK
OUSTON — Life on the edge
will likely begin for the Yankees
on Sunday.
Unless Jordan Montgomery’s left
elbow tightness turns out to be fake
news, the Yankees will test their
shallowest unit, their starting rotation, on Sunday — when Montgomery’s turn next comes up, weather
permitting — against the Indians at
home. How the Yankees fare in this
area, throughout the season, might
very well determine their fate.

INSIDE THE MATCHUPS
george.king@nypost.com
ASTROS: Keuchel
was shelled
by the A’s on
Friday, giving up
a season-worst
six earned runs
and three homers
across seven
innings. The lefty
dominated the
Yankees in Game
1 of the ALCS,
pitching seven
shutout innings
and racking up 10
strikeouts.
STAT SO?
YANKEES: Gleyber
Torres (21 years, 138
days) became the
youngest Yankee to
steal a base Monday
since Bobby Murcer
(20 years, 126 days)
in 1966.
ASTROS: Houston’s
20-10 record entering
Tuesday tied the 2017
and 1973 Astros for
the best 30-game
starts in franchise
history.
The Yankees recorded one of their
best victories of the young season
Tuesday night, 4-0 over the defending champion Astros at Minute
Maid Park, thanks largely to Gary
Sanchez’s monstrous, ninth-inning,
tie-breaking, three-run homer off
Ken Giles that prompted the Houston reliever to punch himself in the
face as punishment. The win felt
sweeter because of the adversity the
Yankees overcame to prevail, as
their bullpen teamed for eight scoreless frames. The adversity, however,
does not go away because Montgomery, who lasted just one inning
before getting lifted, figures to head
to the disabled list even in the bestcase scenario.
“Maybe miss a start,” Montgomery said after the game. “You never
know. But I would be surprised if it’s
something [bad].”
Montgomery will return to New
York on Wednesday morning and
get examined by Yankees team physician Christopher Ahmad, at which
point the club will have a clearer
prognosis. Any time you hear about
a pitcher’s bum elbow, you naturally
worry about Tommy John surgery.
Montgomery, asked to assess his
level of concern, said, “Not too high.
It’s not like I’m hurting really that
bad. Just kind of enough to be there
and scare you a little bit.”
“Hopefully it’s something minor,”
Aaron Boone said. “Monty’s in a
pretty good frame of mind.”
Assuming Montgomery goes on
the 10-day disabled list, which
Boone called “a likely scenario,” the
Yankees’ sixth starter of the season
will probably be rookie right-hander
Domingo German, who relieved
Montgomery in the second on Tuesday and tossed four scoreless innings, keeping pace with Astros ace
Justin Verlander (who, in turn, tied
his career high with 14 strikeouts
over eight innings).
“To me, I have to be ready for anything,” German said through an interpreter. “If I have to start a game,
I’ll be ready for that.”
If German doesn’t inspire a wealth
of confidence, well, this represents
the risk the Yankees assumed when
they chose to enter the season relying on the same quintet of starting
pitchers with which they concluded
last year.
nypost.com
series’ final two tilts.
If Montgomery can’t go on Sunday against the Indians, German
would likely make his first major
league start. If that’s the case, the
25-year-old right-hander with a
dozen big league relief appearances is OK with it.
“To me, I got to be ready for anything,’’ said German, who has
worked five games out of the bullpen this season and seven a year
ago. “If I start I will be ready for
that, although they haven’t told me
anything yet.’’
German’s four shutout innings
showed Gregorius he was prepared.
“That shows you he was ready to
go. He is out there competing.
[That] shows you what he’s got,’’
Gregorius said of German, who
put the first two batters on base in
the fourth and didn’t allow a run. A
soft double by Jake Marisnick with
two outs in the fifth didn’t lead to a
run and the rail-thin German retired the meat of the Astros’ order
— Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and
Yuli Gurriel — in the sixth.
Despite the game being scoreless, the more you watched Verlander carve up the Yankee bats it
felt like the Astros were ahead.
“He was electric, he had his way
with us,’’ Aaron Boone said of Verlander, who retired the final 16
Yankees after Gregorius’ bunt single in the third.
Fortunately for the Yankees, Hinch
decided 105 pitches — Verlander’s
second highest total of the season —
was enough. An inning later, Verlander’s gem was destroyed by Sanchez with an assist from Giles.
YANKEES:
Severino took a
no-decision in his
most recent start
Friday against the
Angels, giving up
three runs and five
hits over seven
innings, tying a
season-high with
eight strikeouts.
In last year’s ALCS
loss to Houston, he
pitched just four
innings in Game 2,
surrendering one
run and two hits
in a 2-1 Yankees
defeat.
Ken Davidoff
Shortage of
arms will test
club’s depth
They hoped to enhance that group
with the signing of Japanese free
agent Shohei Ohtani, only to be
stunned when the pitcher-designated hitter Ohtani refused to even
meet with them. Trade talks with
the Pirates for Gerrit Cole didn’t advance much, and now Cole pitches
(quite well, so far) for the Astros.
The decision to trade for the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton, who went 0for-4 with three strikeouts Tuesday
to drop to .222/.303/.410 on the season, helped the Yankees pass on free
agents Jake Arrieta, Alex Cobb, Yu
Darvish and Lance Lynn, as the team
wants to get under the $197 million
luxury-tax threshold.
Hence the likelihood of an in-season trade. Whether it’s a youngster
like the Tigers’ Michael Fulmer, who
would require a healthy sampling
from the Yankees’ abundant farm
system, or a pending free agent like
the Rangers’ Cole Hamels, some established arm figures to put on the
pinstripes by the July 31 non-waivers
trade deadline.
If Montgomery’s optimism proves
incorrect, or if another starter goes
down, could the Yankees get by for
months with the 25-year-old German, who lacks the blue-chip tag yet
pitched well the two prior seasons
in the minors after his 2015 Tommy
John surgery? If they can and do, it’ll
be the greatest testament yet to the
already superb revival of the Yankees’ ability to develop cheap talent.
They put themselves in this corner. Now we’ll see if the Yankees,
who have proven quite industrious
and resourceful in their latest incarnation, can pitch their way out of
this dilemma.

HE story of the Midwestern innocent let
loose in the big city has
been a trope in successful comedies from
“Tales of the City”
(1993) to "Girls" (2012).
“Sweetbitter,” a new, sixepisode series on Starz, takes
another naif, doe-eyed Tess (Ella
Purnell), and sets her loose in the
New York City of 2006. Despite
her complete

is “invited”
for a tryout
as a backwaiter at an upscale
restaurant patterned on the
Union Square Cafe (where series
creator Stephanie Handler once
worked before writing the bestselling novel on which the show
is based).
Tess doesn’t have much of
a personality but knows that
her Betty Boop good looks can
advance her cause in a world
where surface charms speak
volumes. As her boss later tells a
guest at the restaurant, “She complimented me on my nails. That’s
how she got a job here.”
With its pink chairs and vases
of orchids, the restaurant may
be the picture of moneyed calm
but the kitchen is a war zone and
that’s where “Sweetbitter”s juices
start cooking. Tess receives a
baptism by fire, trying to master
the “three-plate carry” and
learning lingo such as “burning the ice” while she tries to
make friends and sort out the
office politics. While Purnell, a

Restaurant series don’t have
a great track record. “Kitchen
Confidential,” based on the
Anthony Bourdain book and starring Bradley Cooper, died after
four episodes on Fox in 2005.
“Feed the Beast,” which costarred David Schwimmer, lasted
exactly one season on AMC in
2016. “Sweetbitter” succeeds best
when offering an amusingly tart
portrait of some Manhattan striv-

ers whose abundance of attitude
compensates for the reality that
they’re earning a living making,
as one character says, “ourselves
feel small so our [patrons] feel
big.”
The series stumbles, though,
in forcing a romantic storyline
between Tess and Jake (Tom
Sturridge), the restaurant’s
moody, unshaven bartender who
feeds her oysters in the stockroom and offers the pickup line
“What do you taste?” Sturridge
doesn’t have chemistry with
Purnell, and if Tess is meant to
have her bad New York boyfriend
experience with Jake, she can’t
say she wasn’t warned. “It just
won’t be a cool story for later,”
Simone tells her.
As Season 1 only has handful of
episodes, it’s fair to say that not
enough happens on “Sweetbitter”
to pique our interest for more.
Pop in for a drink at the bar, but
you’ll have to book a table elsewhere for fine dining.
HARDING FALLS FLAT
ABC had high hopes for “Dancing With the Stars”
when they brought on controversial ice skater Tonya
Harding (right with Sasha Farber) in an all-athletes
lineup that also includes Adam Rippon. But audiences
preferred “The Voice” on NBC, which beat “Dancing”
in the overall ratings with 8.7 to 8.5 million viewers.
“DWTS” also bombed in the advertising friendly 18-to49 demo, with a dismal 1.1 ranking.
