New York, NY - New York City Councilman Charles Barron and a city university trustee have gotten into a shouting match in the middle of a groundbreaking ceremony.

Councilman Charles Barron Barron got up to the podium at the Tuesday event and accused Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other officials of disrespecting him.

City University of New York trustee Jeffrey Wiesenfeld stood up from his seat in the front row and accused Barron of being disruptive. The two men shouted at each other for several minutes.

Barron claimed afterward that he was originally seated in the audience instead of the event podium and that students he brought with him were not allowed into the event.

The groundbreaking  was for the $259 million Fiterman Hall at the Borough of Manhattan Community College. The school had been condemned since the Sept. 11 attacks.

Its about time someone put this clown in his place, and no better person then Jeff Wiesenfeld to do it. Yasher Ko'ach to Mr. Wiesenfeld for this and all you do for the Tzarchei Tzibbur.

Weisenheim was totally out of line and should appologize to the Councilman. He had no business interrupting and should be excluded from participation in CUNY events until he commits not to repeat this disgraceful behavior which is borderline racist.

230 million dollars for a community college for deadbeats? CUNY should be shut down all together. All they do is waste billions of dollars on all their campuses producing students who can't get careers with their dusty diplomas.

Barron is the disgraceful racist. Anyone who interrupts him and exposes him for the phony he is deserves a big yasher koach.

You are the racist for bringing up race here. You think that every interracial heated exchange is because of race?! As if two whites or two black never go at it with each other??!
