A New York state of mind
I’m shocked, shocked that there are dirty pols in New York:
It’s a stunning and wide-ranging public corruption scandal.
Six highly-placed politicians are accused of using bribery to rig this year’s New York City mayoral race.
There were three distinct parts to the public corruption and bribery scandal, but in all three money flowed freely and, at times, city and state funds — your tax dollars — paid the freight…
And there’s an irony near-miss from the U.S. attorney:
“The charges we unsealed today demonstrate once again that a ‘show me the money’ culture seems to pervade every level of New York government,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.
Right, Preet: show me the money only pervades every level of New York government. After all, we all know such a thing could never happen at the federal level.
