- Yassky Abuses Parking Permit [✜]
Three City Council members who have reserved parking spots - which Mayor Bloomberg promised to end after the Daily News exposed the perk - spent hundreds of taxpayer dollars on MetroCards and cabs last year, documents show.
In Yassky's case, "hundreds of dollars" somehow works out to $15.70. Somehow, spending $15.70 for a cab (or maybe it was two cabs?) hardly seems like an abuse. Let alone chutzpah.
