Brooklyn BP Defends Donations From Atlantic Yards Developer
Markowitz defended the donations, saying that he has always been a proponent of this project and these contributions had no affect on his support.
"Make no mistake, I advocated for this project with no strings attached, no promise of any reciprocal support whatsoever," he said in a statement. "And I continue to do so adamantly because it will be a major catalyst for continuing what we call the 'Brooklyn Renaissance.'"
NoLandGrab: You say "Brooklyn Renaissance," we say "conflict of interest." Let's call the whole thing off!
And remember, when you point a finger, there are three fingers pointing right back at you.
Atlantic Yards Report, Post: FCR, allies funnel at least $680K to Markowitz's "pseudo campaign accounts"
