Quotes

Targeting and thwarting an ongoing investigation is no small matter as it undermines the essential fact-finding function of our judicial system. "At the time of Mr. Perry’s veto last year, prosecutors in the unit had been investigating a state agency called the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas. The agency — one of Mr. Perry’s signature initiatives — came under scrutiny by state lawmakers after accusations of mismanagement and corruption; a former official there was indicted last year for his handling of an $11 million grant.” The corresponding veto can be deemed to be an effort “to thwart the investigation into the cancer-research agency” -- and it shows he was "trying to scrap the ethics unit for other than his stated reason.""
"I'm sorry but the Mayor is busy meeting with Italy this week and cannot consider any NYC issues until he returns. Please leave a message at the tone." July 23, 2014 at 2:38 pm ...And I bet they were all blacks who did it
