“Mind Bogglingly Bad Judgment”

Following reports that the Department of Homeland Security has decided to slash anti-terror funding for New York City less than two weeks after an attempted terrorist bombing in Times Square, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D – Queens and Brooklyn) issued the following statement:

“Cutting Big Apple homeland security funding to the core is mind bogglingly bad judgment.”

“We got lucky when the Times Square bomber failed. Now instead of increasing our odds, the Administration is pushing our luck.”

“I will tell the President this tonight.”

**EDITORS NOTE** Weiner will grill Attorney General Eric Holder during today’s 10 AM Judiciary Committee hearing on the Administration’s decision to slash anti-terror funding to New York City. Watchable on CSPAN 3 or at
