Theres a terrorist in City Hall.
The mouthpiece for Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez (D-Manhattan) is a cop-hating con who served federal prison time for torching an Army recruitment center in The Bronx, The Post has learned.
David Segal, 26, who grew up in leafy Litchfield, Conn., landed the spokesman job last March even after disclosing the arrest to Council Speaker Christine Quinns office, which conducts the background checks, sources said.
In January 2005, Segal threw a burning rag into the Parkchester facility and was carrying a note that described a wave of violence targeting military complexes in the Northeast.
Before he started a six-month sentence at Fort Dix, he described, in an online rant, his arresting officers as pigs who asked a bunch of dumb questions.
Segal served six months in federal prison and four months house arrest. He was on probation for another three years and ordered to pay more than $4,100 in fines and restitution. Segal who also has three prior busts for civil disobedience, including one last month reiterated his anti-war stance when asked yesterday about the arrest.
