The Council's Phat Pork
EJ McMahon of the Manhattan Institute did a very good thing last week in releasing his research of all that is Albany's pork. Simply put, that shit was so obviously fat and yuuuuuuuummmy!
We were inspired. So we thought we'd give you a glimpse of all that is the Council's pork. Because we know that shit is just as yummy.
What's most interesting, though, is to really see one's truest "priorities". And it appears that Giffie's priorities were the gay community (Hetrick Martin Institute got $229,000), some Jews (United Jewish Organization of Williamsburg got $350,000) and of course, the High Line - of which he's a very good friend (they got $250,000).
Interestingly, the Hetrick Martin Institute alone received more money than all the organizations with the word "Harlem" in their names combined. Go figure!
