Adam Giambrone is back in the news. Last year, he apparently expensed $3,000 in cab fares: that’s one $11.50 cab ride (fare, plus tip) for every working day, including a $10 ride to the Drake Hotel to meet future campaign ruiner Kristin Lucas for their first date (he expensed it as a “ward visit”). Giambrone will be paying back the 10 bucks, but now focus has shifted to the TTC commissioner’s other expenses, such as subscriptions to Yo’ Mama Magazine, The Economist and, um, Toronto Life.

But enough about us. What’s most interesting here is not the list of expenses; it’s the revelation that not even Giambrone will use the TTC.
