NYC Mayor DeBlasio appoints tax-cheat to high office

"NYC city council meeting"

“NYC city council meeting”

Another scandal involving Democrats. Color me shocked:

City Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito fessed up Monday, admitting she failed to disclose years of rental income she received, as first revealed by the Daily News.

The East Harlem Democrat, who is Mayor de Blasio’s choice for Council speaker, acknowledged the lapse after The News reported that several people lived in a three-unit building she owns during a period when she reported no rental income on her city ethics forms.

“This was an unintentional mistake,” her spokesman, Eric Koch, told The News on Monday night.

“We will be pulling the necessary documents and will be updating the Conflicts of Interest Board disclosures as soon as we have them.”

Still unclear is whether Mark-Viverito reported the rental income to the IRS. Her aides did not respond to a request by The News to examine her income tax returns.

I don’t see what the problem is: She’s just practicing to be US Treasury Secretary.

Between this and Stacy McCain’s investigation into the real reason New York City’s new, Sandinista-loving mayor wants to ban horse-drawn carriages, I predict Manhattanites will in about two years be begging Giuliani to come back.

    2 years? Try 2 minutes. The bashing of this 2 dimensional cartoon character in every letter to the editor started the day he won the primary. The other idiot democrats shot themselves in the head by burying all we know now until primary was over.

    Uh huh. Just like every jackass Duh-1 has appointed to any office of any significance.

    Face it. When a Republican violates the law they will be crucified in the LSM and probably sent to jail. When a Democrap violates the same laws egregiously, the press ho-hums and it isn’t even buried in Section Z page 15.

    Which brings up the questions: Has Tax Cheat Timmy ever been called on the carpet (like any of us goobers would had we done the same thing) about his outrageous violations of the tax code, or the dishonorable Mr. Rangel, who was in charge of writing said code in Congress?

    I didn’t think so.

    following in obama’s footsteps.

    why is it that the people that are always the one’s calling for higher taxes the one’s that don’t pay them?
