    Yankee Stadium Drama Deepens: The argument about the financing used...

    The argument about the financing used for the new Yankee Stadium appears that it's going to get worse before it gets better, as the nation's #1 Yankee Fan, Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich of Ohio is determined to stay in the batters box and swing like the Bambino. He wrote a letter to Mayor Bloomberg saying that officials "could be guilty of perjury if the misrepresentations were deliberately inaccurate" and that claims about the stadium's value "cannot be relied on." In an email interview Mr. Yankee Fan said "our factual findings could be the basis for a later agency or court finding of legal liability." Hank Steinbrenner has reportedly ordered 500,000 Kucinich voodoo dolls with pins to be given away when the new stadium opens. [NYT]
