Bloomberg’s Legacy

Tevi Troy, generally a sensible man and prolific writer on public issues, takes on a discussion of Mayor and professional nanny, Michael Bloomberg.

Last week I discussed this Medici of the modern age, who spent more than 600 million of his own money to facilitate and inflate and flaunt his mayoralty, in violation of the spirit if not the letter of American Law and Government.

We don’t elect monarchs or even Dukes or Counts here. He got away with his behavior and extravagance because he was rich, worth in the range of 30 billion adn New Yorkers and the New York press do love to kiss up to rich guys with big egos.
