Miller Mail

So here’s a question: Having covered Virginia’s trivial but entertaining fake Asians to death, is the city’s political press bound to spend some more ink on Gifford’s mail expenditure of $1.5 million in public money, and the belated disclosure that we were given the wrong number?

In that vein, NY1 makes an interesting point that breaking up the spending on the mailing into $37,000 increments allowed the Council to avoid putting the mail contract out to bid.

UPDATE: And don’t miss this New York Sun story, which has some nice detail about the print job.
