Skip to comments.NY Touts Economic Boom with South African Photo

A New York economic development agency report meant to show the state's growth was illustrated with an 8-year-old photo showing construction cranes in South Africa....
The photo, showing seven towering heavy-lift cranes being used to build a stadium in Cape Town for the 2010 soccer World Cup, is a cropped version of one owned by Getty Images, available for licensing on its website for up to $575....
The gaffe comes as Gov. Andrew Cuomo's economic development programs face questions over their effectiveness.
Cuomo, a Democrat, said the programs have brought hundreds of thousands of jobs to the state. Critics, though, question those numbers along with the multibillion-dollar corporate incentives paid with taxpayer dollars....

You have to watch which photos you use off Google. LOL.
Of course, a Democrat in a Democrat state, no scandal here. Hardly worth mentioning.

I was born there and spent my first 11 years there on the outskirts of the city. It is a meat dress ie. Lady Gaga and that is a cockroach.
I am Afrikaner. We are tougher and rougher and much better shots than any NYC wuss and our white music kicks any raps ass.
I had heard of that scandal. When did they pull that off?
I had not heard of that scandal. When did they pull that off?
So effing glad I was able to leave New York
Well there you have it....
I laugh every time I see the TV ad about how great it is to open a business in New York - I remember the governor a few years back announcing that if you’re a conservative “we don’t want you in New York” - it’s the last place I’d consider opening a business......
Thanks Behind Liberal Lines.
Cuomo. Calling Gov. Cuomo.
Dr. Frasier Crane has an opening for your appointment tomorrow.
Cuomo “knows” cranes.
Cranes in the ass
In other words, he’s for the birds, and the birds don’t want him.
