USA TODAY recently ran a story telling us that most of the money earmarked for security has not been spent. New York has only spent 47% of its total, while it's senators and representatives are complaining that our money has been cut.
One of the radio personalities contacted the offices of these elected officials for comment and no one commented, nor did anyone return the calls. It's no surprise that Senator Schumer did not comment, there was no TV camera involved, only a microphone.
Possibly the reason that this money has not been touched is that deliveries of needed materials have not yet been made, but it would have been common sense to go before a microphone and explain the situation. Mayor Bloomberg did attempt this explanation on Friday.
