A Risque Appropriation?
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.
But 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.
