Harvard Club controversy

Ethical or not? For the past eight years, the New York City Police Foundation has been picking up the tab for New York police commissioner Raymond Kelly—for money he spend at the Harvard Club, according to the New York Times. Kelly, who has a masters from Harvard Kennedy School, failed to report that foundation paid for his Harvard Club annual dues of about $1500.

But the police commissioner’s spokesman told the Times that what Kelly did was within the boundaries of the law and he was meeting with people at the club for business reasons related to the Police Department. The New York City Police Foundation is an independent, non-profit to provide additional founding and resources to the NYPD.

Guess Harvard’s version of “veritas” is pretty murky.

    Reporting such a tiny issue just to deliver a little jab toward Harvard at the end makes Yale look like it has a persisting inferiority complex. Poor form, YDN.
