Last Friday we found out that Mayor Bloomberg spent a pretty astonishing $102 million to squeak by Bill Thompson in last month's election. And today we find out exactly how much Thompson spent — a just-as-astonishing $9,003,711. As the math majors out there can figure out, that's 8.9 percent of what Bloomberg spent. But Thompson doesn't mind; he's the coolest Democrat in the state now! [Observer]
