Bloomberg fines Thompson's campaign

Thompson fined over street posters

NEW YORK -- "The City of New York has fined mayoral candidate Bill Thompson nearly $126,000 for putting up campaign posters on city property.

City rules bar candidates from hanging posters and fliers on public property and the Sanitation Department says its workers regularly rip down unauthorized material.

So far, the Thompson campaign has been ticketed 1,677 times over such postings.

Campaign spokesman Mike Murphy suggested that incumbent Mayor Mike Bloomberg was behind the ticket-writing effort."

Make a pledge today to support Roots of Betrayal : The Ethics of Christine Quinn on Kickstarter.
