Sweat The Bum
It is now about one month ago, I wrote a letter to the editor accusing your so called turncoat city councilman, James Sanders, as being a controlled marionette of Mayor Bloomberg, in that he stated he would vote yes for congestive pricing, contrary to the wishes of Rockaway residents. The Wave refused to publish my comments, is it because I was right on target? The chickens have come home to roost in that The Wave now headlines Sanders voting against Rockaway and for Bloomberg's discrimination of the outer boroughs by taxing us to execute our right of "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." To travel freely is a common fundamental right provided by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Councilman Sanders' vote disagreed with the constitution and Rockaway but in agreement with Mayor Bloomberg and speaker of the City Council, Christine C. Quinn.
Two politicians who maintained an illegal slush fund of $5 million to twist the arm of so called councilmen such as Sanders to vote their way. A slush fund in bogus companies to hide the taxpayer money. Quinn in her evolution from campus activist nicknamed Mad Dog which mirrors her detesting of outer borough taxpayers driving to Manhattan. Her statement upon the successful vote of the city council of which Sanders was a part stated, "I'm sick and tired of the outer boroughs driving into Manhattan." This former activist known as Mad Dog considers us Rockaway taxpayers as outsiders in her covert imagination that Manhattan is her city and we must stay out or pay a price to enter. The sad part of all this is that the marionette James Sanders voted with her. Why? Did she twist his arm with the smell of taxpayer slush fund monies hidden in bogus entities to muscle the marionette Sanders?
The Justice Department is investigating why taxpayer money was put into fictitious community organizations. If I was investigating this scam, I would sweat each councilman from the outer boroughs who voted yes for this outrageous tax upon our constitutional right to travel freely. By the way, the two highest policy makers of the city stated they had no idea? This existed, Bloomberg and Quinn… how far away is the orange jumpsuit for these actors?
