Albany reimbursements are the source of ongoing regular controversy that just does not seem to get fixed. Sheldon Silver racked up over $20,000 in bills jetting around.
Arroyo received over $13,000 for “travel” to and from Albany and stipends for working in Albany. Even the night before Thanksgiving!
From April to September 2012, the latest dates available she was paid $6,662 in travel stipends. With a lot of Fridays claimed as a workday in Albany for her, hhhmmm.
She also spends $25,000!! of our money in mail for that period.
Over $7,427 in travel and legislative work stipend money from tax payers.
Again over $25,000 for mailing in six short months, including a time during a contested Primary election.
Let’s look at a few dates: 11-23 -11
Arroyo puts in for TWO reimbursements, this also happens to be the night before Thanksgiving Day, lots of work in Albany to do?
December 15 a Wednesday for $557 and December-21, a Thursday amidst holiday times, hardly active times in the Assembly!
Curious about the facts? Look here for proof.
