City rewarding bad behavior?

From the Daily News:

Advocates are pushing the city to sever ties with a developer whose top executive was busted for bribing city officials — and are demanding new rules for how the city does business with companies under investigation.

Great American Construction has already agreed to withdraw from one affordable housing project, Greenpoint Hospital in Brooklyn, after executive William Clarke was indicted in June, city officials told the Daily News. But the firm has four other active projects with the city in Brooklyn and the Bronx — three already under construction, one on the drawing board. 

Communities for Responsible and Equitable Housing, a coalition of housing groups, is calling for the Department of Housing Preservation and Development to blacklist the developer, removing it from current projects. And they want a new policy to be enacted so that firms facing criminal charges can’t do business with the city.
