The Senecas have approved a resolution calling on Bloomberg to apologize and then resign.
Speaking on a New York Radio Show, Bloomberg was quoted as saying: "If there’s ever a great video, it’s the governor standing in the middle of the New York State Thruway saying, ‘read my lips, the law of the land is this and we’re going to enforce the law.’"
