Giambrone spent city money on cab trip to meet Kristin Lucas
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.

It’s illogical to think that Adam would take the TTC to all of his appointments.
Him not taking it everyday is in no way an admitance that it is a poor service. Not only that, but BlogTO ran this regurgitation of this poorly researched Star article last week.
C’mon Toronto Life. You’re better than this gossip-rag nonsense.
I’ve seen Adam G. on the streetcar more than once… I’m pretty sure he rides. He sure claims to.
If he is going to spend taxpayers money he should be held accountable. He’s just a typical sleezy politician.
I find it interesting that a $11 dollar cab fair charged to the taxpayers is a terrible thing, but its ok that a Computer scandal for $200 Million at a cost to the tax payers is no big deal. According to the OPP and City of Toronto. You know who the company was and who was involved but no charges…….. somebody must know somebody… is Canada getting corrupt?
