Now let's put this in the proper perspective. Let's make it hypothetical since William Thompson, Comptroller of the City of New York is an honest man and Charles Barron is an honest Councilman representing Brooklyn.

Now substitute the name Thompson for Logiscli and Barron for Rattner. Now assume that Barron had paid Thompson. What would have happened to Barron?

He would have been indicted in a hot minute and convicted by now. A press conference would have been held.Barron would be in prison. And The Times would publish a political obituary of Charles Barron.

But not Rattner. Rattner is always given favorable treatment because of his connections to the wealthy of New York society. Even now Quadrangle continues to handle the finances of Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
