Pylman's Pricetag: Part Deux

Here's what I've heard in the last 24 hours. Take it for what it's worth.

1. Pylman's departure is being very carefully choreographed by the powers that be.

2. Ka-ching! Pylman is getting a big ol' wad of cash.

3. The Common Council investigation into Pylman will be officially closed and all the transcripts and paperwork will, indeed, be dropped into the memory hole. One person I talked to said getting rid of that "report" is more important than getting rid of Pylman, hence the payout.

4. They really are suprised that Pylman's departure is generating a stink in some quarters and think it's part of an "anti-cop" agenda.

5. Here's some real crazy talk- Pylman had some kind of involvement with the state "Troopergate" affair that Attorney General Cuomo is currently investigating.


6. There might be an announcement tomorrow (Tuesday), but the real action is going to go down on Thursday. That's when Pylman will hold, or be part of, a press conference to offer up the spin that he was waiting to leave until the Lindsey murder trial and sentencing was completed. He'll be offering up a huge speech at the sentencing, followed by the press conference.

7. The big "award" last week was just prep work for this week's shenanigans.

8. Pylman's settlement is big. Really big.
