Thompson also a lobbyist magnet

From the NY Post:

City Comptroller William Thompson, a Democratic mayoral hopeful, has received more than $83,000 in donations to his war chest from lobbyists with city business during the time he has been considered a likely contender for City Hall, a review of records shows.

And in the last 10 years, donations to his various campaigns from lobbyists or similar groups total close to $400,000.

The donations since 2006 were made during the time Mayor Bloomberg and Council Speaker Christine Quinn were trying to reduce the appearance of "pay to play" by severely limiting the size of donations from the amount lobbyists with city business could give.

Wow, first Weiner and now Thompson. I bet "the guy who can't be bought because he's rich (but who can buy everyone else)" has been making some phone calls to his newspaper buddies.

that I'll bet "Parkside" is tops on that list.

Evan reached up into his fat caboose and pulled out a wad of cash for "wild" Bill.

I hope he washed it off first.

H-m-m-m, I seemed to have made a "funny"...a new slant on laundered money!
