Former county mayor Jim Rout, as well as several other county officials, are being investigated for what appear to be extravagant wastes of the taxpayers' money. According to recent findings, officials spent at least $73,000 in NYC on limos, Broadway shows, and fine dining. An article in the CA singles out one $168 tip on a $1,100 meal at Central Park's famous Tavern on the Green. The article failed to point out that at the ritzy Tavern on the Green, the tip in question (a mere 15 percent) is considered rather chintzy.
