The NY Times reports that 3 out of 8 of the members on the expert panel that NYSED commissioner David Steiner convened to look into the Cathie Black matter worked for Joel Klein.
Gee, I'm sure they'll be objective.
So even before Steiner starts this sham panel, we can safely assume 37.5% will be a "yes vote" for Cathie Black.
Steiner just needs a couple more votes and then he has all the public cover he needs to give Bloomberg what he wants.
And then, a few years from now when Steiner leaves NYSED, there will be a cushy position waiting for him somewhere with gobs of money and other goodies, courtesy of one of Bloomberg's "charities."
In The Godfather, this was called bribery.
In Bloomberg's New York, it's called business as usual.
