From the Village Voice:
Do they not have email in Albany? Because the absence of email is the only plausible explanation for the more than $7 million in taxpayer money that New York lawmakers spent on stamps in six months.
That's not a joke -- New York lawmakers actually spent more than $7 million on postage in six months, according to the latest filings on the Empire Center for New York State Policy's database of legislative expenditures.
But it wasn't just postage on which our elected officials pissed away our money -- according to the database, the total amount of legislative expenditures between October of 2011 and March of this year was $102 million.
