Where's The Beef? (UPDATED)

(Update) Senator's Aubertine friend and leader gets $2 million

Apparently is does not pay to be in the majority of the New York State if you are from Northern New York in a out of balance New York City dominated New York State Senate.

Here are the top pork getters for this year.


Between the top two they are splitting up $10.5 million of your money!

- Malcolm Smith $5,475,000.00  (Queens)
- Jeff Klein $5,000,000.00  (Bronx)
- Dave Valesky $4,500,000.00
- Liz Krueger $4,000,000.00
- Carl Kruger $4,000,000.00
- Bill Stachowski $4,000,000.00
- John Sampson $3,040,000.00
- Neil Breslin $3,000,000.00
- Tom Duane $3,000,000.00
- Velmanette Montgomery $3,000,000.00
- Suzi Oppenheimer $3,000,000.00
- Eric Schneiderman $3,000,000.00
- George Onorato $2,974,500.00

Instead of where's the beef, maybe the question is - where's Senator Aubertine?

We NNYer's don't NEED that money. We can do without. Let the donkeys spend it downstate, where people need govment money.

He misunderstood what paperwork he needed to turn in to request that money. He was to busy requesting huge increases for his staff.

FYI: I'll be on the HOTLINE tomorrow at noon with Jeff Graham (taking Dede's place) ...

Get your questions ready and call in, or just wait outside the station with your pitchforks, tar and feathers (and rail of course) ... LOL

Classic Darrel and his incompetent staff. Too busy putting out press releases eh Drew? Maybe if you guys kept your eyes off the blogs and the politics out of the office you could get some work done.

I hope you do run for Congress Darrel, be glad to practice my NO vote for you then.

Actually the tax money allocations are going to the areas of the state with very dense populations. Exactly where most of the tax money is being collected.
PIV are you suggesting that NYS should give millions of dollars to perhaps 30-45 thousand upstate residence. To do what with, pray tell?

Actually every Senate district has roughly the same number of people, the geographical size varies, but not the people.

Equal representation - pretty cool concept eh!

Nice Try

You friggin' hypocrite. You were the guy posting on the evils of pork. You need a shrink man to explain your fascination with the Senator. Whatever it is, it's latent.

Thanks Bruno, we will put it to good use.

There is no nut like an anonymous PIV nut.

hahaha you complain about the budget and then complain that you think Darrel didn't grab enough. Hypocrite isn't a strong enough word for you complainers. I see that DMF hasn't pontificated on this yet.

How about getting away from this wasteful system? True most of the money is collected downstate, But ths system just ontinues a corrupt system. How much did AJR get for her area??

The way I see it, no matter how we spend it, the money came from YOUR KIDS. That's why I'm not too concerned who wastes it, or who buys votes with it. As long as "the children" continue to get thumped, I'm happy for all you progressive NYers.
