False support? Mayor Adams alleges some City Council members backed How Many Stops Act despite privately opposing it

Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday claimed that some City Council members who voted for the “How Many Stops Act” police transparency legislation he recently vetoed would not have supported it if they could have voted “their conscience.”

Hizzoner made the remarks at his weekly “off-topic” press conference as the council is preparing to override his recent rejection of the measure — known as the “How Many Stops Act.” The council passed the two-bill package by 35 votes late last year, more than the 34 needed to overrule Adams’ veto.
