    Yankee Stadium 'Possible Fraud': Everybody may be readying to say...

    Everybody may be readying to say bye to the old Yankee Stadium, but a Congressional hearing on the new one mentioned "improprieties and possible fraud" regarding $942 million in tax-exempt bonds already approved. Rep. Dennis Kucinich says his probe has uncovered "substantial evidence of improprieties and possible fraud by the financial architects of the new Yankees Stadium." A city appraiser put the value of the stadium land at $40 million but the city used a figure of $204 million to get the IRS to sign off on the tax-free bonds. [NYDN]
