If Anthony Weiner does decide to get back in the Mayor's race
, he'll have something to brag on besides standing up for Jewish Jets fans
: his bill to reauthorize the federal Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program just passed in the House
. If it gets through the Senate unscathed, Weiner says in a release that it will add 2,100 75-percent-federally-funded officers to the NYPD. That's 2,098 more cops than they're get in Gig Harbor, Florida
, and certainly many more than we'd have otherwise, as the Department has been planning to cut cops and recruits
. Herb Kohl and Dianne Feinstein are sponsoring the Senate version.
