Is It The Fumes?

There is a growing body of evidence that there may be an unrecognized hazardous materials site in Oneida County. I'm speaking, of course, about the Utica Mayor's office. Has the DEC ever tested the air there? There seems to be some kind of chemical or contaminant that creates an overwhelming urge to boff your employees.

Update: A reader thinks I'm bringing up things that shouldn't be brought up. Normally I'd agree that who you're sleeping with isn't a political issue, but the Mayoral tendency to engage in hanky panky with subordinates is a bit different. As in any organization, relationships within the chain of command are terrible for morale and can expose municipalities to crippling legal liabilities. Ed Hanna's reputed assignations have already cost the city of Utica a quarter of a million dollars and...other...Mayoral indiscretions could be equally damaging.

Is it really all that hard for these guys to keep their pants zipped?
