City balks over Yankee Stadium documents

New York. The Bloomberg administration is refusing to hand over documents requested by a Congressional subcommittee investigating how the city secured tax-exempt financing for the new Yankee Stadium. U.S. Rep Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) has claimed the probe discovered “substantial evidence of improprieties and possible fraud.”
Kucinich said the city’s claim of attorney-client privilege doesn’t apply to Congress. But city attorney Terri Sasanow disagreed, adding the city will provide a “log” of documents, not the documents themselves.
