Eliot on Ports

Virginia and Eliot got to rub elbows last night at a meeting of the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce, which took place at the Marriot Marquis in Times Square. (Is that part of Greater Harlem?)

After Virginia’s intro of Eliot (“Can you go on a little longer next tie, I’d enjoy that”), the Attorney General got down to some political speak directed at, presumably, Tom Suozzi.

Paraphrasing here: We can’t simply say we’ll cut Medicaid by 10%; that would shut down some hospitals.

Before dashing out to some other event not on his public schedule, I threw Eliot a question about that United Arab of Emirates port deal.

He supported the congressional scrutiny of the deal because security at the ports could be “impacted by foreign ownership…”
