A Risque Appropriation?

Written by John DeSio on . Posted in Politics, Posts.

Yesterday David Freddoso of the National Review took New York’s Senate delegation, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer, to task over a $350,000 funding earmark they have requested for the Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC). The money will fund a methamphetamine program, but Freddoso took a look at the GMHC website and wonders what else the taxpayers are being asked to endorse with this grant. Quote:

GMHC spokesman Noel Alicea did not immediately know specifics
about what the $350,000 would fund when I called him yesterday. The
group may do serious work with methamphetamine addicts — it does have a
Meth hotline listed on its website.

since money is fully fungible, Schumer and Clinton are essentially
asking taxpayers to fund everything the group does, including its
controversial agenda and a website that is lewd far beyond anything
that scientific health-education requires.

The full piece is here.
