No Surprise, The Cleveland City Council approved another give away to the Cleveland Browns

When Cleveland's mayor was begged by small music clubs and musicians to cut back an 8% admissions tax he shot back- "I have a city to run.".

From The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Today, we got an idea of the kind of spending the city considers vital. Cops? Education? Street repairs? No, another give away to a favored sports team.

"City Council voted 16-2 Monday to let the team take the money from a city-administered tax on alcohol and tobacco sales. Cleveland, which leases the stadium to the football team, is required to provide only $850,000 a year for major improvements."

My guess is we will see some of these scumbags in a puppet theater show soon.
