    At highly rated Maspeth High School in Queens, students know they can play hooky, skip course work, flunk tests — and still pass. They call it the “Maspeth Minimum,” meaning everyone gets at least the minimum grade or score needed to pass or graduate, no matter what.

    Meet Bronx resident John Cummings, a Republican and former Harbor Unit cop-turned-high school civics teacher who is mounting a long-shot bid to topple Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez next year.“But to just come from the outside and take somebody on is really difficult,” Cummings told The Post in an exclusive interview.The one-time bartender Ocasio-Cortez inspired him to run — for her 14th congressional district seat.“It was pointed out to me by my students that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pretty much made my excuse– and I’ll use their quotes– ‘a lame one,’” he said.So the 59-year-old Saint Raymond High School instructor plans to file paperwork with...

    Queens is about to get a heckuva lot more pervert-friendly, and parents, some current and former sex workers and rank-and-file Democrats are seeing scarlet. Scaring the stuffing out of a wide swath of residents of a borough already plagued with an enormous number of working girls, boys and transgender individuals is the apparent Democratic primary victory this week of Tiffany Cabán for district attorney, which pretty much makes the self-described “queer Latina’’ and BFF of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a shoo-in. Problem is, the 31-year-old democratic socialist is so enamored with the world’s oldest profession, she promised to stop arresting not...

    The hazing antics of two New York City high school students during a school trip stop at a New Jersey motel last year that included branding a fellow student’s buttocks have landed them a two year prison sentence, officials said. The students, whose names were not released because of their age, pleaded guilty earlier this month to two counts of aggravated assault, aggravated hazing and three counts of hazing, the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office announced Friday. The Queens-based Francis Lewis High School students will serve their time at the New Jersey Training School in Monroe Township, prosecutors said. “We believe...

    A “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star — who was previously sued by rapper 50 Cent after she claimed he shared a sex tape of her– was busted Saturday morning for allegedly driving drunk and unlicensed — and with only three wheels on her car, law enforcement sources told the Post. Teairra Mari — who sued the famed rapper in May 2018 and was later ordered by a judge to pay up –lost a wheel when her front passenger side tire dislodged from her maroon 2014 Dodge Charger around 3 a.m., sources said. Mari then drove like that for a...

    Staffers at a violence-plagued Brooklyn high school say they fear speaking up about the dangerous environment because the assistant principal is politically connected. Tommy Torres, a Democratic district leader who ran for City Council in 2017, posted an Instagram photo of himself with Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza last week at a gala for Dominican school administrators in Queens.

    A Queens man caught preparing for a 9/11 anniversary suicide bomb attack on the subways under Grand Central will soon walk out of prison thanks to a sentence that amounts to his time already served, a judge ruled Thursday. Najibullah Zazi, 33, had faced up to life in prison after his 2009 arrest, but spent nearly the next 10 years cooperating against al Qaeda. Thursday’s 10-year sentence - which, given his good behavior behind bars, means he will be sprung any day now - came at the urging of prosecutors, who cited his extensive cooperation in arguing that he deserved...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surging national profile has inspired a trio of Republican opponents from her home district — along with a multimillionaire mystery donor who could help close the gap in her foes’ long-shot race against her. Just three months after taking office, the Democratic socialist congresswoman’s challengers include an Egyptian American journalist, who has already tossed her hat in the ring, and an NYPD cop-turned-high-school-civics teacher and conservative talk-radio producer, both of whom are seriously exploring a run against her. And the fledgling challengers could get help from a wealthy New Yorker committed to backing an Ocasio-Cortez opponent, a GOP...

    A jury in the retrial of the man accused of killing Queens jogger Karina Vetrano found him guilty of murdering the 30-year-old woman and dumping her body in weeds near her home. Chanel Lewis, 22, was found guilty on all four counts brought against him. The jury deliberated for just a few hours before returning the guilty verdict. Earlier in the day, they heard closing arguments as Vetrano’s parents wept and prayed in the courtroom, hoping Lewis would be found guilty of the slaying after his first trial ended in a mistrial in November.

    Amid her zeal to save the world with the Green New Deal, Rep. ­Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ­ignored residents in her own Bronx back yard. “I thought AOC would be our savior, but that’s not the case,” complained Roxanne Delgado, a local activist who said she has tried for months to get in touch with the congresswoman for help saving an animal shelter and to clean up parks in the district. Delgado, 40, says she has made numerous calls to Ocasio-Cortez’s offices in Washington and Queens and sent a barrage of tweets after the freshman lawmaker encouraged residents during a recent...

    Since Donald Trump Jr. first gave an impassioned and well-received speech in support of his father and conservative values at the 2016 Republican National Convention, rumors have swirled about his own political future. At a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for President Donald Trump on Thursday, Trump Jr. told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he would "never rule anything out" when it comes to potentially making a run for office. "Right now, I'll never rule anything out," said the president's eldest son, according to Newsweek. "I do enjoy it. I like being in the fight. I like being in...

    Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, the fourth-highest ranking Democrat in the House, said special counsel Robert Mueller's report should be made public so Americans can find out whether President Trump is a legitimate leader, an asset of the Russian government, a kingpin or a "useful idiot." "Let's take the first step in terms of the full disclosure of the report and the underlying documentation," Jeffries said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "The American people deserve to know whether Donald Trump is either: A, a legitimate president; B, a Russian asset; C, the functional equivalent of an organized crime boss or; D, just...

    Decriminalizing prostitution — an idea gaining momentum among some Democrats, including at least one 2020 presidential contender — may one day be traced back to the hookers plying their trade under the elevated train along New York City’s Roosevelt Avenue. That open-air market of prostitutes and johns in Queens, undeterred by the constant threat of arrest and incarceration, has been cited by New York state lawmakers mulling whether it’s time to wave the white flag in the war on the world’s oldest profession.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Queens Center Mall erupted into chaos Friday afternoon after police say a rapper’s book signing spiraled out of control. Authorities say Bronx-born rapper “A Boogie wit da Hoodie” – whose real name is Julius Dubose – was scheduled to appear inside the mall’s Puma store at 5:30 p.m. Video posted to social media showed people getting into fist fights and looting stores, as sheer chaos broke out around 2:30 p.m. “They grabbed the chairs and broke it on his head, the poor guy was bleeding,” witness Maria Moncada said. “It was bad.”

    The Democratic Socialists of America — a key backer of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s stunning victory last year — endorsed public defender Tiffany Caban for Queens District Attorney Sunday. DSA wasted no time likening Caban’s insurgent campaign to AOC’s upset of former Congressman Joe Crowley in last June’s Democratic primary. “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise victory opened the doors for a new, Democratic Socialist vision of electoral politics. It shows people are no longer content with out-of-touch politicians that ignore the working class,” said Sasha Weinstein, of NYC-DSA’s Queens Electoral Organizing Committee. “A Cabán victory will show that Queens is ready to...

    Just hours after The Post exposed her penchant for riding in gas-guzzling, private vehicles, US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made her getaway from a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Queens in a for-hire minivan on Sunday. The leading advocate for the proposed “Green New Deal” was less than four blocks from a Queens subway station when she hopped into a white Chrysler Town & Country with livery plates at around 1:20 p.m. The 2016 model of the since-discontinued vehicle gets an average of just 17 mpg in the city, according to the US Department of Energy.

    The NYPD is warning police officers about a possible threat from the MS-13 gang, particularly when they are off-duty. CBS2’s Dick Brennan reports that in a bulletin the NYPD put out this alert: “Members of MS-13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area as well as possibly Patchogue.” The bulletin says that the gang members would carry out the attacks on off-duty officers “in order to gain street credibility.” While the threat has not been substantiated, law enforcement experts say this cannot be taken lightly. “Whenever a law enforcement officer is being threatened, especially...
