Cover up: Slush Fund, Pension Scandal
"Over the coming year there will be investigations, and revelations that will embarrass ever one of us." Queens Councilman Eric Gioia when he voted against the overall budget last week exposed the member item slush fund cover up.

Conspiracy 2: Another investigation that has fallen off the presses radar is the pension fund scandal. Over two months ago True News exposed serious problems that need to be investigated in the pension funds and in the city's controller office The Wolf at Thompson's Door.

In fact it seems the press is working with the candidates to allow the current system where political insiders like Morris, McCall and Ferrer get big payoffs from the city's pension holders. In coverage about these candidates the press seems to cover everything but the pension fund scandal Roll Call of Cowardice: The controller candidates are a bunch of weenies, Yassky pitch return to beekeeping to New York City
