CUOMO'S GENDER GAP - POLITICO New York's Bill Mahoney: While Gov. Andrew Cuomo frequently portrays himself as a crusader against gender inequality, women occupy a small percentage of his administration's top jobs. Cuomo, who considers himself a feminist , has made gender equality a key component of his political strategy in recent years. He made his Women's Equality Act the linchpin of his end-of-session agenda in 2014, and even gained an additional ballot line that year through his creation of the Women's Equality Party.
At an event at New York University earlier this month, Cuomo bemoaned the "chronic sexism that still exists in society." Symptoms of this sexism, he argued, could be found by looking at females' economic status. "Women comprise 52 percent of the workforce, but only 14 percent of executive offices, eight percent of top earners, and four percent of Fortune CEOs are women," he lamented. "Women earn 84 percent in general of what men earn; they earn $11,000 less per year than their male counterparts."
Left unsaid, however, was that this gap is far wider in Cuomo's own administration, where women earn an average of less than 73 cents for every dollar made by men. http://politi.co/1J6qfaV
JAMES BLAKE FALLOUT -- De Blasio promises 'clear statement' on potential police misconduct -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: Mayor Bill de Blasio promised a "clear statement" any time city leaders see inappropriate police conduct on Monday, after the former professional tennis player [James Blake] who got apologies from him and police commissioner Bill Bratton after being tackled and handcuffed by police last week said over the weekend that other police abuse victims should get apologies, too. "This is one incident, but really what matters is the major policy changes and the major resources that we're putting in to reform this department," de Blasio said Monday afternoon, standing next to Bratton outside the NYPD headquarters at an unrelated press conference. "My view is this is about moving forward as a city. This is about continuing the retraining, continuing the reforms, ensuring that people are treated properly and that officers know how to use the least possible force in these situations."
-- de Blasio: "In each and every situation, if we see something we think is inappropriate, there'll be a clear statement about that. But the most important thing is to get ahead of the challenge. The challenge is not new. It's decades old." http://goo.gl/c3gJZJ

RELATED -- CCRB records indicate few NYPD officers fired for misconduct: About a year ago, police commissioner Bill Bratton walked into a crowded room at the brand new police academy in College Point, Queens, and told NYPD officials that, quite frankly, some of them had to go. "We will aggressively seek to get those out of department who should not be here," Bratton said. "The brutal, the corrupt, the racist, the incompetent. ... The reality is, at this moment, that there are some in the organization who shouldn't be here ... They're not the right fit for the NYPD of 2014." Despite Bratton's assurances - and a recent call by former tennis star James Blake that an undercover officer who tackled him in a case of mistaken identity be fired - records indicate that over the past dozen years, not many officers have been kicked off the force for misconduct.
-- Since 2002, just six officers have been fired because of substantiated complaints investigated by the Civilian Complaint Review Board, the city-funded watchdog group charged with investigating complaints against police officers. According to the CCRB, one officer was removed in 2004, 2010, 2012 and 2013, while two were fired in 2009, according to CCRB reports. Those figures do not include incidents investigated by the NYPD's Internal Affairs Bureau. POLITICO New York: http://goo.gl/57Jsph
-- Times editorial: "Yes, they can start by firing him. ... Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio should make an example of him. ... Why shouldn't Officer Frascatore be arrested for assault? Why was he still loose on the street despite his long history of excessive-force complaints, first reported by WNYC ... Why is no action taken when multiple complaints are filed with the Civilian Complaint Review Board?" http://goo.gl/8F8mLV
MM-V AND DE BLASIO -- "NYC Council Head Mark-Viverito Charts Course Away From De Blasio" -- Bloomberg's Henry Goldman: "New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito won her job last year after Mayor Bill de Blasio pressured members to back her. She had endorsed the long-shot candidate early when he ran the year before, and he returned the favor. What began as a partnership has turned into a pain. As Republican presidential candidates warn that de Blasio's liberal policies are returning the biggest U.S. city to dark days of crime and decay, she's been whacking him from the other side of the political spectrum. ... 'People said I would be a pawn,' she said in an interview. 'I said I was going to be independent and provide oversight.'" http://goo.gl/7E5BfM

FOXX DISCUSSES TUNNEL WITH CUOMO - POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said Monday he hopes to see a "breakthrough soon" on a plan to build a new cross-Hudson tunnel to midtown to replace the one that's falling apart. "It's clearly an issue that I care about, it's one that I know New Yorkers and folks from New Jersey care about," he told reporters during an unrelated event. "And because of that I believe that you'll see progress happen." A reporter asked Foxx whether he's met with Gov. Andrew Cuomo yet. "Well, I've had conversations with Governor Cuomo and I expect that those conversations will continue," he said. "It's just, we've got to have a project. And the problem right now is that we don't have a project. We've got to get a project that everyone agrees conceptually to, and then we can start running through different scenarios about how to pay for it." http://politi.co/1Nscl92
NAIL SALONS PLAN SUIT -- Crain's Andrew Hawkins: Two trade groups representing Chinese and Korean nail salons plan to sue the Cuomo administration over the new requirement that they purchase wage bonds as security for any unpaid wages, following a high-profile report of alleged worker abuse and exploitation. The Korean American Nail Salon Association of New York and the Chinese Nail Salon Association of East America claim the wage mandate is 'discriminatory' to Asian nail salons, particularly female owners, and predict it could result in 30% of businesses closing, according to a letter from the lawyer representing both trade groups to the New York State Department of State. Both groups say they plan on filing legal action against the state on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
-- "'The associations' members are largely first generation immigrants that seek the opportunities that only the state of New York can provide,' wrote attorney Michael Yim in his letter to Secretary of State Cesar Perales. 'However, the current manner in which the 'wage bond' will be implemented will unavoidably have the unintended and unfortunate consequence of causing far greater harm.'" http://goo.gl/3ajXse
SCARBOROUGH SENTENCED - Daily News' Glenn Blain: Disgraced ex-Assemblyman William Scarborough of Queens was sentenced Monday to 13 months in federal prison for ripping off taxpayers through bogus travel vouchers and misusing campaign funds. The 69-year-old Scarborough, who resigned from the Assembly in May as part of a plea deal with prosecutors, must also repay $54,355 to the state and serve two additional years of "supervised release" once he leaves prison. 'I brought shame to my family,' Scarborough told U.S. District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy. 'I have let my community down. I have given up a job that I love.'" http://nydn.us/1ircOxc
PREPPING FOR THE POPE - Times' J. David Goodman: "For hours on Monday morning, scores of law enforcement officials, police commanders and representatives from at least 48 agencies sat in a room on the second floor of Police Headquarters in Lower Manhattan and imagined the worst. Two active gunmen, one at a hospital, another at a train station. A power failure. A building collapse on Cliff Street, a few blocks west of South Street Seaport. The unlikely series of hypothetical events were part of a large-scale tabletop exercise in preparation for the visit of Pope Francis to New York, which begins on Sept. 24. The visit, which is the pope's first to the city, coincides with the United Nations General Assembly, where heads of state from about 170 countries are expected to attend." http://nyti.ms/1URImbb

TRANSPORTATION BEAT -- DN editorial: "The ultimate responsibility for salvaging NYC's mass transit system falls on Gov. Cuomo": "MTA boss Tom Prendergast, in a statement issued to the press the morning after the derailment, saw fit to call attention to city's capital commitment to the subway system. 'I am tired of writing letters to city officials that result only in vague calls for more conversations,' Prendergast declared. Crafty attempt to change the subject, but no. The almost certain culprit in the derailment - collapse of a ledge track workers use to navigate tunnels - is basic maintenance. In all possible worlds, this falls squarely on the broad shoulders of the MTA and of the governors who, over many years, have starved it of funds for basic upkeep. But even if in some strange way a crumbling wall could be blamed on capital funding and not rudimentary repairs, that, too, is first and foremost the job of the state and Gov. Cuomo." http://goo.gl/C5BG5T
-- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: "Who has never started to switch lanes, thinking a car wasn't next to them?" U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx asked Monday afternoon. Who, he continued, has "never been surprised by a stop sign or a stop light?" "And it's ok," he told the reporters gathered before him. "Nobody really has to raise their hands." Foxx joined city officials at New York City's Joint Management Traffic Center in Queens to announce the city would soon become home to what he called "the largest demonstration of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure technology in the world." http://goo.gl/wmqW1c
CHELSEA CLINTON REVIEWED by Maria Russo in the forthcoming Times Book Review for "It's Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!": "Clinton surveys pretty much every problem known to humankind - including poverty, global warming, obesity, gender inequality and cancer. She breaks it all down with statistics, adds a little historical context and offers a look at some solutions, both the governmental kind and the things individuals can do to make a difference. Where she succeeds is in making even the knottiest issues seem accessible to a bright seventh grader. In fact, she writes in a style that would seem perfectly at home in a stack of middle-school term papers." http://nyti.ms/1OscNF6

NYU NEWS -- "Colleges Flush With Cash Saddle Poorest Students With Debt," by ProPublica's Annie Waldman and Sisi Wei: "New York University is among the country's wealthiest schools. Backed by its $3.5 billion endowment as well as its considerable fundraising prowess, the school has built campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai, invested billions in SoHo real estate, and given its star faculty loans to buy summer homes. But the university does less than many other schools when it comes to one thing: helping its poor students. A ProPublica analysis based on new data from the U.S. Department of Education shows that students from low-income families graduate from NYU saddled with huge federal loans. The school's Pell Grant recipients - students from families that make less than $30,000 a year - owe an average of $23,250 in federal loans after graduation." http://bit.ly/1OsdluF
THE TALK OF WALL STREET -- "Wall Street's latest panic: Trump could win: With Bush and Clinton taking their lumps, financial executives face populist critics in both parties," by Politico's Ben White: "Wall Street is growing increasingly terrified that Donald Trump - once viewed as an amusing summertime distraction - could actually win the Republican nomination for president. ... Would-be Wall Street saviors like Jeb Bush are languishing in single digits. The belief that Trump's candidacy would quickly fade is now evaporating in a wave of fear. ... The CEO of one large Wall Street firm ... said the assumption in the financial industry remains that something will eventually knock Trump off and send voters toward a more establishment candidate. But that assumption is no longer held with strong conviction. And a dozen Wall Street executives interviewed for this article could not say what might dent Trump's appeal or when it might happen." http://politi.co/1KjpufA

SPEED READ -- "Sheldon Silver, Former Assembly Speaker, Helped Developer Block Methadone Clinic's Relocation, U.S. Says," by Times' Benjamin Weiser: "When a methadone clinic sought to relocate to Manhattan's financial district in 2011, parents, local business owners and others rallied in opposition. Perhaps the most prominent opponent was Sheldon Silver, then the powerful speaker of the State Assembly who represented that neighborhood. 'I made it clear to everyone involved that this does not seem to be an appropriate location for this facility,' Mr. Silver said ... But what Mr. Silver did not reveal then ... was that a real estate developer who owned a building near the proposed location had asked him for his help in blocking the project - and that Mr. Silver had a secret interest in providing such assistance. Mr. Silver, prosecutors said in the filing, was receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal payments disguised as referral fees from a law firm to which he had steered some of the developer's legal business." http://nyti.ms/1KQ6c82

REAL ESTATE -- LANDMARKING BATTLE RAGES ON-"REBNY study finds landmarking doesn't boost affordable housing," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Amid an ongoing debate over the way New York City government handles landmarking properties, the city's powerful real estate lobby issued a report Monday that affordable housing units are less likely to be preserved in historic districts. The findings, released by the Real Estate Board of New York, come days after the City Council held its first hearing on legislation that would impose deadlines on the city Landmarks Preservation Commission.
"REBNY found that from 2007 to 2014, the drop in rent-regulated apartments in the city's properties and districts that had been granted landmark status was four times higher than in non-landmarked areas. ...
"'Affordable housing remains one of our city's most pressing needs, and these numbers do not show any evidence that landmarking helps to preserve it,' REBNY president John Banks said in a prepared statement. 'This report refutes the notion that historic districts are a good means of preserving existing affordable housing.' ...
"A leading supporter of preserving historic sites blasted the study as 'statistically unsound and specious.' 'This is a classic case of pretending that correlation equals causation, when the number one rule of statistics is that it does not,' said Andrew Berman of the Greenwich Village Society of Historic Preservation. 'The real question, which this bogus 'study' does nothing to address, is how many units would have been lost in those areas if they were not landmarked?'" http://politi.co/1LuYv1j
TOURIST TRAP-"When Inspectors Look for Illegal Hotels," by WNYC's Ilya Marritz: In probing short-term rentals through Airbnb and similar websites, New York City inspectors have focused their efforts around Midtown Manhattan, even though Park Slope and Williamsburg are popular tourist spots as well. This was among the findings from 2,684 reports WNYC obtained about the past 18 months of inspections. Another conclusion: "Inspectors are doing a good job of following up on complaints to 311 ... but they're missing a lot of rentals that are probably not legal." http://bit.ly/1KbyMxc
BIG DEALS-"Mack-Cali plans to unload its only New York City property," by Crain's Daniel Geiger: "As part of a sweeping restructuring, real estate investment trust Mack-Cali Realty Corp. plans to sell its only Manhattan property-a commercial condominium at 125 Broad St. in lower Manhattan. ... Mack-Cali aims to eliminate its real estate holding in New York City as part of its divestitures, according to an 8-K filing recently released by the publicly traded REIT. The company purchased the unit in 2007 for $273 million from SL Green Realty Corp. The 525,000-square-foot condo consists of floors two to 16 at 125 Broad St.-a 40-story, 1.3 million-square-foot office tower." http://bit.ly/1KbsXQc
THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Mets 4, Marlins 3: Yoenis Cespedes homered, of course. The Mets trailed, then Travis d'Arnaud homered to tie it and David Wright collected the go-ahead hit, of course. The Mets won, of course. Eight straight wins. The Mets have four win streaks of at least seven straight wins this season. They've done that two other seasons: 1969 and 1986.
-- Yankees 4, Rays 1: After being no-hit for seven innings, and trailing 1-0 with two outs in the ninth, Slade Heathcott, just up from the minors, hit a three-run homer to give the Yankees an improbable ninth-inning comeback win like they're the Mets or something.
-- Eli Manning took responsibility for both urging Rashad Jennings not to score a touchdown to give the Giants a ten-point lead, then throwing the ball away on third down to stop the clock late in Sunday night's 27-26 Giants loss to Dallas. Neither of which was ideal game management.
-- The day ahead: the Yankees are in Tampa Bay. The Mets host the Marlins.
