Milk-Carton Tommy is hardly alone. There's Cory Booker, for example.
...The only thing worse than the crime and corruption in the New Jersey city that gave the nation Cory Booker is its drinking water. First, they found lead in the water in schools and then in people’s homes.
In some homes the lead content in the water is four times higher than the federal limit....
Naturally, Booker blames it on Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacism!!
... Booker probably forgot that he had served as the ex-officio chairman of the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation. It's understandable that Spartacus forgot all about it because while he was running Newark, he never actually attended a single NWCDC meeting.
And, after a while, he stopped even pretending to send a representative.
The NWCDC was being paid $10 million a year to manage Newark’s water.
Linda Watkins-Brashear, a Booker ally and donor, worked as the director of the NWCDC. At least until she was arrested, tried and convicted in a $1 million kickback scheme. The scandal broke during Booker’s final year in office. And the NWCDC, Board of Trustees, which he was supposed to be overseeing, took swift action by dissolving the board, and writing a $450,000 check to Brashear. ...
That $1 million kickback thing won't happen in Milwaukee. Nobody really cares that much.
