  • Evidence of Hochul pay-to-play outrage mounts

    Source: https://nypost.com/2022/09/18/evidence-of-hochul-pay-to-play-outrage-mounts/



    Gov. Kathy Hochul’s “emergency” move to overpay for COVID tests sold by a big donor looks even more squalid in the face of news that California paid half as much for the same tests.

    The Times-Union reported Friday that California paid 45% less for the same COVID-19 tests that New York bought from a company tied to $300,000 in donations to the Hochul campaign — a firm that pre-pandemic sold electronic hoverboards.

    Cutting out the contributions-giving middleman might have saved $286 million out of the $637 million in total payments to Digital Gadgets, whose founder Charlie Tebele and his family gave $70,000 to Hochul’s campaign before landing the contract and another $227,000 afterward.

    Hochul was able to do this without normal review (her team took the deal in less than a day) under emergency powers that she kept extending month after month until recently, after news of this deal made headlines.

    Not that it’s her only pay-to-play scandal: Hochul’s giveaways to the Buffalo Bills’ owners and to a Penn Station-area developer also reek.

    I thought the federal government was buying the tests and the vaccines for the states?

      I'm not surprised. I thought Hochul might have been an improvement over Governor Saint Cuomo the Great, but she has proved as arrogant and self-centered as he was.

        You know, whenever these threads of bad D behavior come up, many of the most sanctimonious posters simply fail to show up.

          They did. Evidently, New York wanted more.

                  Why not? They have their own gods...
