Talkative Bronx Beep Says Obama's Giving Him a Job
Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion spoke at Yale's Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life Friday night and, in "off the record" comments afterwards, told the students he was "being tapped" for one of four offices in the Obama Administration, says Politico: Education, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development or the Small Business Administration. The New Haven Independent and the Yale Daily News, and PolitickerNY also carry the report; YDN adds that Carrion claimed to have received a "congratulatory phone call from Sen. Hillary Clinton" before his address on Latino-Jewish relations. Neither news outlets nor politicians are as circumspect as once they were, we guess.
