NYT Mixes Up Slush Fund With Member Items

Member Items are Pork While the Slush Fund is the Subject of A Criminal Investigation

End the Slush A New York City Council fund that is supposed to help nonprofit programs is seldom divvied up based on need. It should be scrapped.

While today's NYT called for an end to the city council slush fund it did not mention the fact that their chosen candidate for mayor Speaker Quinn has been the subject of a federal investigation that is entering it 4 year. Slush Probers Eye Fraud Rap for Quinn, April 13, 2008. The NYT called for an end of the council's slush fund. What they really meant was an end to member items. The slush fund are illegally funds hidden inside the the city budget under made up non profit names. The NYT wrote about it on April 4 2008 Phony Allocations by City Council Reported.

In a 2008 NYT story Quinn said that she was upset that the slush fund was continued after she ordered it closed down a year before. Where did she think the member items she gave out after that years budget was signed, came from Santa toy bag? In a NY Magazine story also in 2008 Speaker admits she knew about slush fund for a while. The NYP in 2008 wrote QUINN: SLUSH FUND HELPED ME

Today's NYT editorial also left the important information in the 2008 NYT article that explained that the speaker had hire a lawyer for herself and the rest of the councilmember to represent them against the federal slush fund investigation. It is clear that the media is covering up Quinn's city funded slush funds lawyer.
