KPMG Plagiarizes?

This could happen to you, KPMG

Atlantic Yards Report (h/t Going Concern):

In court June 29, Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) attorney Philip Karmel said that "probably the most important factor" in the ESDC’s decision to assume a ten-year buildout for Atlantic Yards was not the Development Agreement that provides 25 years without sanction but a KPMG report that backs the timetable.

The KPMG report got very little discussion, but it contains lies--blatant, checkable lies--about condo sales.

And, as I discovered when I took another look, it contains more than two pages of shameless borrowing--plagiarism that is not diminished by a vague footnote.

Check out the Going Concern post for more.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
