State pushed for shady contractor at Deutsche

In early 2006, New York State development officials approved the hiring of an unknown company, the John Galt Corporation, to help demolish the Deutsche Bank building near ground zero.

Before Fire, a City Warning Over a Contractor

More than a year later, a blaze in the building killed two firefighters, and questions immediately emerged about Galt. Some of its top executives, it turned out, had worked at another company, the Safeway Environmental Corporation, which officials in the city’s Department of Investigation said had a history of problems with integrity, competence and financial issues.

A recently obtained document shows that on April 11, 2006, city investigators accused state development officials of not only knowing about Galt’s questionable ties before they approved its hiring, but also misleading the investigators about the subcontractor, possibly to avoid questions that might have slowed or blocked its hiring.

answer: John Galt a fascist fictional icon who wants to kill off the working class. He was created by Ayn Rand, a proponent of laissez-faire capitalism. another immigrant who rejects altruism, unless it goes in her direction of course.
could she have published this crap in Russia?
She would have been working on the line in the jam factory, where she belonged instead of spewing her hateful garbage disguised as entertainment.

John Galt was a character in Ayn Rand's book Atlas Shrugged

the name alone should be alarms to the IRS.
