Asswipe Mayor de Blasio overspends on city toilet paper

NY Daily News

New York City is literally flushing millions down the toilet.

The city has spent at least $8.8 million on cheap toilet paper since June 2013 – and the costs are piling up under Mayor de Blasio.

Around $1.58 million was wasted on toilet paper last fiscal year, a 12% bump since 2014, according to records obtained by The Daily News. Last month alone, the city bought $126,000 worth of toilet paper rolls.

The city uses about four million rolls every year, buying only cheap, single-ply toilet paper, according to the Citywide Administrative Services. An average of $1.45 million was spent on potty paper annually over the last few years.

That’s about 35 cents a roll.

DCAS dumps the rolls in all municipal buildings, including City Hall, police precincts, parks and firehouses.

"It’s a waste of money,” one Democratic councilman, who asked not be name in order to cover his behind, quipped. “Taxpayers are watching their money flushed down the toilet.”
Another councilman tried to perfume the issue slightly.
 “It seems like a lot of money for toilet paper, but at least we now have a solution for all the crap coming out of City Hall,” Councilman Joseph Borelli (R-Staten Island) said.

Alas, how tragically (and, predictably) sad that the Paper Tiger (reactionary) people in this country won't do squat ...

THAT has already been proven and made absolutely clear, regarding the fact that people are still thinking that they can ‘VOTE’ their way out of a totally corrupt corporate owned system—and, when THAT doesn’t work (again and STILL!), what will they do?—VOTE HARDER (ha, ha)?

Alas, the entire DemonRat, party-machine-failed SCOURGE are ALL right of center Republicans emblazoned with the Democrat label. They are: RIGHT of CENTER Republicans—without any MORAL CENTER—which is why their hyper-corrupt, entrenched and establishment-rigged cabal (and ‘kakistocracy-kleptocracy’ of depraved, disloyal, intolerant extremist ‘Monetary Locusts’) is soon preparing to guarantee a second term for TRUMP 2.0 (the DemonRats’ purported nemesis), when the entire corral of BrainWashington, D. C. sewer rats DEVALUE honesty itself—to pathologically high treasonous, traitorous and tyrannical effect—and, the ever languishing public be damned!

Is it true that he yells out to Chirlaine "Mommy I'm finished. Clean me up"

How is this money being wasted? It seems to be a very low price. Or is the TP so shitty that people wind up using more of it?

Anon 1 and 2:

I was actually expecting these comments, quotes and more with the Billie Holiday/Civic Virtue post from a week ago.


I wouldn't doubt it. Wait till he finally addresses corporate news, he's gonna make a big boom boom after that.


I presume that de Blasio's admin is full of vegans, they probably produce a lot more splatter than meat eaters.

I'd rather them have toilet paper in government facilities than have none at all. I went to jury duty about 4 years ago and we as jurors had to call the guards to get toilet paper for us in our bathroom in the jury room. So I'd rather have it on hand than have none at all.

$1.58 million was SPENT on toilet paper, not WASTED.
More shitty spin media.

Does Chirlaine invest in this toilet paper company or does a member of her family own it?
Follow the money

This from mayor fatberg? Medicare should retrofit toilets with fifty buck automatic bidets. Old folks can't stand up to do a normal wipe so they or their aides use wipes. And the yuppies wipe the hinds of their dogs and cats. And the super soft toilet papers are just as bad, you can make a quilt with some of them. Drill sergeant rubbed my skid marks in my face. You need to mandate passive macerators before homes dump into the sewers. Or supply shards of metal and glass to do the maceration.

Any chance of having DeBlasio's picture on the toilet paper?

If the TP is single ply and disintegrates upon hitting water, like Scott, it's actually the kind of TP plumbers recommend. Soft, cushy TP like Charmin is the worst as they clog up the pipes.
