Rudy Responds
This sounds like a credible explanation of the Politico Hampton billing story. If what Katie Couric says is true (“Those 3 former budget directors have basically explained it according to the way you’re explaining it to me today’) and the accounting was appropriate( i.e. the costs weren’t hidden and eventually the costs got backed out and paid by the NYPD) I don’t see this is as the hugely significant story it was painted to be. UPDATE: Mayor Bloomberg’s press secretary provides back up and confirms the expenses were reimbursed by the Police Department while the Comptroller who originally raised the issue now says in effect “that’s not how we do it now.” (And that’s the basis on which this accusation was made?) Similar to the CBS interview, Rudy explains the accounting story to ABC here.
However, if this is the first of many like this, it’s going to be a long month before the caucus votes.
