$80 million stolen from NYC taxpayers on Bloomberg watch: so many layers tough to police, NYC relatively crime-free, he says

12/17/10, "Alleged payroll fraud slipped through cracks: Bloomberg." NY Post, AP

"New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says payroll consultants accused of stealing $80 million from the city were allegedly able to do so because
  • they simply slipped through the cracks.

Bloomberg said Friday on his weekly radio show that the alleged fraud should have been detected earlier.

  • But he said the city can’t investigate everything at all times.

He said this project involved many layers of contracts, which

  • can be difficult to police.

He declared the city is still relatively free of corruption and crime."
