|NYC Chancellor Carmen Farina|
Carmen retired to her home in Brooklyn, and started currying favors for Bill de Blasio. When Bill became Mayor, many of us media-parents-advocates who knew all about Carmen's weakness for using her position of power as a "friend with benefits" and giving favors to trusted co-workers, tried to convince him NOT to pick Carmen Farina as Chancellor, but we knew it was a done deal. Bill de Blasio is a "friend with benefits" to many people. We all remember the case of Reverend Orlando Findlayter, don't we? Bill not only gave him favors, but called his friends at the police to get him out of jail. Nice. Anyone with a computer can see that New York City and New York State government runs on political favors and cronyism. Our government is founded on the rights of the rich to pay whomever is in office to do what they - the wealthy - want. No pay, no play.
Sometimes politicians get caught. See the stories of Sheldon Silver and Dean Skelos, just for starters.
I betcha Carmen Farina has many secret payoffs that the media has not found out about yet, or are holding out of the public eye, but we do know how she violated the rules and laws of New York City to put Brooklyn Tech's former Principal Lee Mc Caskill's young daughter into a District 15 public school even though McCaskill lived in New Jersey; and we know how she allowed Diana Lam's husband to get a job without telling the Conflict of Interest Board. See the SCI Report.
See the following stories (some of many):
The Arrogence of Immunity and the "Resignation" -or Retirement -
and, I saw first hand how she wields her magic wand towards people she favors, as well as how she destroys people who confront her about her wrongdoing.
And now we know about Patricia Peterson.
