‘Community Relations,’ IYKWIMAITYD

Posted on | August 12, 2012 | 13 Comments

New York legislator Naomi Rivera is the daughter of a corrupt Bronx Democrat machine politician. She also has a boyfriend named Tommy Torres whom she put on her payroll — and on her secret Facebook page, as Candice Giove of the New York Post reports:

Dozens of photos on Daniela’s page show Rivera with her hunky “babe” in various poses — locking lips, nuzzling his cheek and dirty dancing.
The legislator began posting romantic photos of Torres in 2009, when she created the page under “Daniela,” her middle name, and a year before she hired him or finalized her divorce from husband Antonio Rodriguez.
Torres pulled down $18,123 in taxpayer-funded salary while working out of Rivera’s Morris Park district office for four months in 2010, records show.
But exactly what he did for his $1,100-a-week rate remains unclear — as does the question of how it was even possible for him to work for Rivera when he was already working full time as a gym teacher and high-school sports coach.
According to state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office and Assembly records, Torres was listed as a “full-time” community-relations director for Rivera from Aug. 30, 2010, until Jan. 1, 2011.
At the same time, city Department of Education records indicate, he worked full time at Brooklyn’s PS 157 and made extra money coaching after class. In 2010, he earned a total of $89,550 from the DOE, records show.

So between what he was making as a public school teacher and what he got as a politician’s hired boy toy, Torres was collecting more than $100,000 a year from taxpayers. And yet when confronted with the evidence, his girlfriend/client Rivera asks the reporter to “respect my privacy,” as if having taxpayers pay a salary your boyfriend was a private transaction.

    Did you expect any less from the people in the party of deceit, lies and racism?

    Isn’t it amazing how some individuals post online photos and/or videos of everything they say or do, then, when caught with *ahem* their pants down…..want us to ‘respect their privacy.”?

    Speaking of which….did you guys hear that Code Pinko plans to send photos of their collective vagina to the GOP?

    Agreed!!! It’s such blatant hypocrisy! I’d like to say I was blown away by Code Pinks latest insanity, but that wouldn’t be true.

    “Salary” isn’t the right term for money paid in exchange for sex. Good thing Torres is cheap: less than $50/night.  Wonder who else he’s doing to cover the rent?

    How is it news that a Democrat steals?  Graft and corruption are considered perquisites of office for them.  Amazing that it even made the papers, must be the boy-toy sex angle.

    Now, if they ever found an honest Democrat, THAT would be news.

    Why, yes, yes it is.  Group think –  group pink.

    No, that was for four months, so it’s more like $150 a night.  If he got two days off a week, it makes it $200 a night.  Plus he has his teaching salary of almost $90K.  He may be for sale, but no low-rent hustler.

    Too bad she didn’t contact Anthony Weiner, I suspect he wouldn’t charge a dime.
