The Operation was a Success but the Patient Died

The mayor, as per Azi, has come out in defense of the way in which his agencies vetted the now disgraced Donna Reid Fund. As we recall DFTA said no, but DYCD said yes. What DOI should be doing, instead of examining the actions of the City Council, is looking to determine just how Asquith Reid was allowed to head a group getting city funds even while he was a city employee.

You know, when you leave that relevant question blank on an application form it should raise at least one red flag. Was DYCD asleep, or was there something untoward going on? So when the mayor comes out with instructions on how the council should go about dispersing its funds, he'd be better served by examining his own house-the one headed by the putative "adult."
