New York, NY - Mayor Michael Bloomberg says an audit on New York City’s 911 system shows “a new level of intellectual dishonesty” by Comptroller John Liu.

Liu said this week that a contractor hired to overhaul the system may have received millions in unjustified payments.

Bloomberg said Friday on WOR Radio that the contract was registered with Liu’s office and the budget was approved there. He questioned if Liu even read the contract.

Bloomberg said, “It’s pretty hard to answer something as stupid as this charge.”

Liu has asked prosecutors to investigate whether there was any criminal fraud associated with the contract.

After the criticism, Liu’s office retorted: “We will chalk up Bloomberg’s name-calling ... to low blood sugar.”

The mayor’s office announced an initiative Thursday against big, sugary drinks.
