    The House That Lies Built?: It's safe to say that Rep....

    It's safe to say that Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio is not a Yankees fan. He's been heading up a Congressional probe of taxpayer funding of arenas and says the city provided a "possibly inaccurate tax assessment" so it could get hundreds of millions in tax-exempt bonds.

Investigators say that $500 million in construction costs may have been "improperly included" in the report to the IRS for the bonds. [NYDN]
