Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-Roslyn Heights) spent his career wasting taxpayer money to keep the votes coming his way. He is finally retiring after 30 years.
Newsday praised him today for the “gift” he left behind for staff members. Ackerman gave them bonuses so big they nearly doubled their pay during the previous quarter.
He is the “most-generous member of Congress with bonuses” according to Legistorm.
Apparently, Ackerman is known as always having been “generous.”
It’s not generous, it’s wasteful and irresponsible. It would have been generous if it came out of his pocket.
