Quid pro quo for Markowitz?

BROOKLYN'S BEEP FULL OF $HIP: CRITICS

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz has raised eyebrows for accepting a free trans-Atlantic cruise on the mammoth Queen Mary 2 - after lobbying hard to get the ship to dock in Red Hook.

No word on whether Tony Danza was aboard.

Sounds a lot like a trip to Taiwan (early 1980s) that certain politicos and CB#7 (?) members took......was it with the infamous Tommy Huang?

Of course Markowitz took a kickback. He's a just another cheesy politician who believes in enriching himself instead of his constituents.

By the way. any bets on which price range he put his snout in: the $1,399 or the $23,399 service?

What ethics committee?
