Fossella losing Bloomberg's support over congestion pricing?

via the NY Post;

While congestion pricing has been a windfall for some, the issue has created a dilemma for Mayor Bloomberg, who now finds himself in an awkward position with a longtime ally.

Rep. Vito Fossella (R-Staten Island, Brooklyn) is refusing to take a position on congestion pricing. But City Councilman Dominic Recchia (D-Brooklyn), who is gearing up to run against Fossella, is supporting the controversial proposal.

So whom does Bloomberg support, his longtime Republican pal or a Democrat who lined up with the mayor at a critical juncture?

Bloomberg has said repeatedly that he'll be supporting elected officials who support the city, i.e. congestion pricing.

Congestion pricing seems to have died today with an announcement that the State Assembly will not be taking up the legislation. This might end up taking some heat off of Fossella who may be the only elected official in the city refusing to publicly state his opinion on the matter.
