From the Daily News:
Dozens of Housing Authority employees commute to and from work on the taxpayers' dime - some even using city cars for weekend getaways, the Daily News has found.
Take Jerome Paige, a supervisor in the authority's Brooklyn office. Last month, The News found Paige and his city-owned Ford Windstar minivan at an exclusive Poconos resort known as The Hideout.
Records show the $90,000-a-year bureaucrat puts in for the 240-mile round trip to his chalet every weekend. In two years, that's 20,000 miles, courtesy of the taxpayers.
Tracked to his mountain retreat, Paige refused to talk about his commuting habits, except to admit he had driven the van there.
