“New York crane inspector accused of corruption”

Email Print

I would have never imagined in a million years that there could be government corruption even in the crane inspecting department:

A senior city buildings official took bribes in exchange for falsely reporting that cranes had been inspected and that crane operators had been certified, but his actions did not appear to be connected to two recent crane collapses that killed nine people, authorities said Friday.

So will the Department of Buildings suffer a market loss? Perhaps its stock will go down? Maybe they will take a hit in subscribers? Will its certification suffer? Will insurance companies still use their services? Oh wait. This is the state we’re talking about. Nothing to see here…move along…
