Thompson and Liu Express ‘Concern’ to Bloomberg About Hidden Accounts

Here’s a letter dated today from the current city comptroller and the incoming one, expressing their mutual “concern” about Michael Bloomberg’s “recent and troubling acknowledgement” of hidden bank accounts.

The letter, from outgoing Bill Thompson and incoming John Liu, seek to put the blame for the accounts on Bloomberg’s administration (who have gone on the offensive to criticize others like Robert Morgenthau, for maintaing the accounts).

“We also note a troubling silence regarding any explanation as to how this widespread practice began,” the letter says, “and why it was not remedied as soon as it came to your attention.”

That’s a bit more concern than Liu was expressing earlier.
