NYC Comptroller: Nice Try, Rudy


ABC’s got a further run-down on the latest on the Shag Fund.

One nice detail. They had a conversation with NYC Comptroller Bill Thompson, the first guy to stumble across Rudy’s book keeping shenanigans. In response to Rudy’s claims that the whole thing was business as usual — “handled openly, honestly” — Thompson told ABC: “That’s not the way that we operate these days, and it would not be the preferred way of doing business. In the end, it’s a very convoluted way of getting things done. If anyone hoped that no one would notice, they were being foolish.”
