The Most Shocking Thing in Today’s Story About Mayor Nutter’s Travels
Lots of interesting tidbits in today’s Inky story about Mayor Nutter’s jet-setting ways, but the most appalling and shocking detail was this:
Indeed, the city spent $1,646 last year on a Microsoft tablet and accessories for the mayor – so he can stay in touch from near and far, whether he’s on Capitol Hill or in a Roman hotel.
A Microsoft tablet? City Hall couldn’t spring for an iPad? The fact that Mayor Nutter has a Microsoft tablet puts worldwide sales of Microsoft tablets at (roughly estimating) two: My dad has the other one. Oh, the shame. If you’re going to spend our taxpayer money traveling around the nation, Mr. Mayor, at least take a tablet we can be proud of. (iPads even have the Microsoft Office apps these days, so there are no excuses!)
