From a city newspaper:
Queens City Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras called for an investigation of her district office manager Monday after a blog linked the staffer to a Facebook page to raise money for a motorcyclist charged with attacking Manhattan father Alexian Lien.
The staffer, Ivettelis Rodriguez, is part of a motorcycle group that is trying to spring Robert Sims from jail, a Queens blog reported. “I am deeply disappointed with the behavior my staffer, Ivettelis Rodriguez, has exhibited,” Ferreras, a Democrat, told the Daily News through a spokeswoman, adding that she is “working with the City Council to launch a full investigation.”
Why is an investigation necessary? It's quite obvious that she did this on taxpayer time. But even if it wasn't, there was no mercy shown to a deputy press aide for Scott Stringer who had the audacity to criticize the president on Facebook, so why should Ms. Rodriguez be shown any for supporting biker thugs?
She must have a shitload of dirt on Ferreras!
From another city paper:
“I am deeply disappointed with the behavior of my staffer, Ivettelis Rodriguez,” [Ferreras] said. “Her statements are not in any way indicative of my beliefs nor is it an accurate reflection of the high standards of personal conduct to which I hold my staff.”
But Rodriguez told The Post that someone copied a message onto her Facebook page through the “tag” function and that she doesn’t support Sims in any way.
“I just didn’t take it [the posting] down fast enough,” she said. “I don’t support him, I don’t even know him, I’ve never met him.”
Actually, the screenshot proves that your husband posted it to your misguided biker page, so don't blame "tagging".
I also find it quite hilarious that daily papers that plaster double entendre headlines and photos of half-naked women on their front covers on a semi-regular basis have problems crediting a blog called "Queens Crap" as their source. Or even just providing a link back to the original post in the web versions of their stories. You know things are bad when 2 of the big three are ripping off little old me. What the hell happened to journalism?
