Double dipping candidates in NY

Double-Dip Duffy?
Tuesday, June 8, 2010
 
Rick Lazio’s campaign wasted little time attacking Rochester Mayor Bob Duffy as a “double dipper” for accepting a police pension at the same time he earned a salary as mayor of Rochester, as reported this morning in the Wall Street Journal.

“It is the height of hypocrisy for Andrew Cuomo to brag about combating ‘double dipping’ when his running mate is a walking, talking, example of abuse,” said Lazio. “Once again, Andrew Cuomo says one thing and does another. It’s no surprise, of course: Robert Duffy is a politician’s politician and that fits Cuomo perfectly. It is an outrage that Duffy would abuse the system and keep a $70,000 pension while simultaneously receiving his Mayoral salary of $127,694. Andrew Cuomo’s selection of a double-dipping running-mate tells the voters everything they need to know about Andrew Cuomo and the likelihood that he would reform Albany.”

[ As a side note, for those in the 150th Assembly district, they know all to well about double dipping as they are represented by Assemblyman Parment. ]
