Wanna know what our friend, the Queen of Queens Crap, Councilwoman Melinda Katz, has been doing during this year of the pig? Well, she tells the NY Times that her mind is definitely not focused on representing her constituents:
Ms. Katz, a Democrat from Forest Hills, plans to hold a dozen more money-raising events before the end of June. She has hired a fund-raising consultant and set up a campaign Web site. And she books at least four meetings a day to discuss the politics and issues that will shape the Democratic primary.

Wow, that's great...she has four meetings a day to discuss her campaign! When does she have time to represent her constituents? Surely, the number of campaign meetings will increase as she gets closer to the end of her term.
Is it ethical for politicians to be spending all their taxpayer funded time campaigning for their next office?
Does anyone do anything about it?
Is that rooftop Mel's standing in Forest Hills?
