NYC Revokes Mayor's Emergency Migrant Spending Power Over "Extensive" Reporting Failures
The Constitution is supposed to prevent too much control from ending up in too few hands, as it divides government power. We have checks and balances so that it is difficult for one person or group to obtain power without reaching a consensus with others. No one is supposed to have a magic wand to do as he or she or “they” pleases. But it turns out that Mayor Eric Adams was doing just that.
New York City Comptroller Brad Lander revoked Adams’ emergency power, which allowed him to make deals with contractors for migrant services without prior approval, according to the New York Post.
Emergency purchase orders are meant to be for real emergencies. Like 9/11. That was an actual emergency in New York City that justified the emergency spending of public funds at a moment's notice. These powers are not meant to be used in a free-for-all spending spree.
The migrant crisis is not an “emergency” because you could just deport all of them. But Adams has been making countless decisions without Council or Comptroller approval and has been awarding no-bid contracts to who knows who and just doing as he pleases.
Um hello, he was the one who called NYC a sanctuary city. And then he gets to go and give out no-bid contracts?
So much for checks and balances, right?
Since May, nearly half a billion dollars has been used to provide various migrant services, including housing, food, and laundry, to asylum-seekers, contract records reviewed by the Post revealed.
As long as you are illegal, NYC will do your dry cleaning. Unfortnley, for native-born citizens, no such program exists.
“Our review found extensive failures to report subcontractors despite problems that surfaced with many of them and 80 percent have no performance reviews at all,” office spokesperson Chloe Chik said in a statement.
Wow. That is a very large percentage. Not surprised though. I would also not be surprised if a similar phenomenon was revealed if we checked every department in that city.
The decision came after his office reviewed $1.7 billion in emergency contracts covering 21 months.
“In response, we concluded that the most prudent course for the city’s fiscal health and integrity would be to require City Hall to seek prior approval before using emergency procurement on a case-by-case basis, as required by the City Charter, rather than blanket approval to use whenever they want.”
It turns out that when you abuse powers, you end up with a bunch of tyrants in the government. Rather than restoring New York to how things were before the alien invasion, Adams refused to let go.
In a real emergency, not a self-imposed one, emergency powers can reduce harm if employed carefully. But ever since the Panny D, anyone can just scream “emergency” to circumvent limited powers.
The last thing emergency powers were intended to do was assault individual liberty in the name of “security” or whatever. But I guess Adams did what needed to be done to make sure that no human is truly illegal.
