I was there when the last Hell's Angel raid on 3rd Street happened and I even briefly spoke to Ron Kuby. I remember a massive turn out by the NYPD.
But when it came to NY Pension funds being raided, pay to play, pay to not got jail, pay to not plead guilty -- no NYPD, no Feds wire tapping and if only.
Ditto for CityTime and NYC Gov. Jumping to Mike breaking campaign laws, I want Mike Bloomberg and his staff's emails to Haggerty seized from the past two elections because based on Aram Roston's piece, http://www.observer.com/2010/politics/secret-campaign-mayor-mike Mike Bloomberg funneled money to Haggerty the election before this one via the Republican party but Cy Vance and NY judge don't feel Mike is responsible for his 108 million or 150 million $ he spent to buy or steal an election and Mike Bloomberg did break campaign laws as exposed by Wayne Barrett and Aram Roston.
Now let us get back to CityTime. We have our first Whistle Blower on the record as early as 2003 and I am an artist but it appears to me directly implicating SAIC but too date Mike Bloomberg keeps praising SAIC like SAIC and CityTime are heroin and Mike is a drug king pin dealer! Click the link below and see the actual letter by the than head of Office of Payroll for NYC who resigned when NYC gov did nothing.
Just a reminder, Rudy brought in CityTime and SAIC. SAIC screwed over the FBI as well just like many of us believe SAIC has screwed the tax payers of NY with CityTime all these years.
Another reminder, Rudy's best friend Peter Powers, once his deputy mayor was the lobbyist for SAIC on the MTA deal and I believe he began working as a lobbyist for SAIC around the same time as he took over Giuliani Partners when Rudy ran for President. We all fought the SAIC MTA deal like we fought the renewal of SAIC CityTime Sept. 30. 2010, Mike Bloomberg and pals wanted a full renewal with SAIC but we won a victory thanks to John Liu. I filmed Union Workers on the steps of City Hall and created a YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/BloombergNoCityTime In some of the speeches I filmed, speakers gives you direct first hand experience how CityTime does not work and how they have to get on the telephone to fix their time sheets.
My point is there is a strong possibility that more than 80 million has been stolen over the years on the flawed CityTime project and most people don't seem to care and are not crying out for a full investigation. How ironic, Mark Mazer, the alleged master mind of the 80 million dollar theft, hired Gerald Shargel, the Mafia lawyer to represent him. Mazer worked for NYC gov. in children services where he got in trouble but that didn't stop him for getting hired as a consultant!
Sal Salamone also got in to trouble before living his NYC gov under Dinkins and like Mazer a red flag should have gone up but as usual none was raised. http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2011/02/06/2011-02-06_slippery__rich_city_official_who_quit_in_scandal_made_millions_as_lobbyist.html
* By accident I found that Sal Salamone and Peter Powers have some things in common besides SAIC and one is they are both lobbyists for EMC Corp. Just also so cozy. http://suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com/2011/02/mark-page-didnt-really-know-sal.html
How was close to a billion dollars allowed to be spent on CityTime with no checks and balances until John Liu did something about Sept. 30 of last year? Ditto for 2 billion on the 911 Tech system. All we know is consultants have grown rich!
That is the standard practice here in NY State, City and with the MTA with lucrative deals and no watch dogs.
We have people being laid off and massive cuts so you would think the entire city would be demanding a full investigation. Here is video footage to remind you city workers who did not steal are being laid off and one of these two women speaking got an email at Christmas from NYC gov. you are laid off. http://www.youtube.com/user/bloombergiceberg#p/u/8/a7SQAHDin8s
I have always said, New Yorkers threshold for corruption is greater than our tallest sky scrapers.
If I told you the bank down the street was robbed of 80 mill plus and some was your money you would be upset but because it is tax payer money you don't care because the USA, Federal, State and City is an accepted culture of theft.
If John Gotti, the Gambino family, the Hell's Angels stole 10,000 dollars there would be world wide press media coverage but CityTime has too many powerful connections and perhaps there is a massive attempt at a cover-up.
In 2003 I wrote "Chopping the Street, One Mega-a million at a time" and it was about white collar crime above the radar costing tax payers billions. I never thought to include NYC gov and Albany.http://suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com/2010/12/suzannah-b-troy-chopping-street-before.html
Carl Kruger is turning himself in . You all know I feel Dave Paterson should be in jail for perjury and more and there are many in Albany that should be joining him.
New Yorkers and all American perhaps are just hopeless with despair and have accepted that politicos are corrupt and above the law....Someone recently said to me Christine Quinn is a gangster.
There is no massive NYPD turn out, no dramatic busts by the FBI, just silence and justice remains deaf, blind and dumb...welcome to NYC, USA. No wonder we, the USA, have a mega-trillion dollar deficit which China owns a huge part of and Mike Bloomberg and pals brokered a deal allowing a Russian billionaire (does that translate into gangster) buy a huge hunk of Brooklyn that was taken by eminent domain abuse.
