Contrary to Rudy's assertion last night, the story is true and directly implicates the mayor. The propriety of utilizing NYPD security for love trysts in the Hamptons seems like an abuse of public trust. Of course a mayor is entitled to constant vigilant security, heightened where there is a threat, yet how endangered could he have been at the love nest? And why did the Post not report this on the front page under the banner 'Safe Sex'?

This is a big story with larger questions that merit further investigation of the accounting irregularities.
