Bloomberg’s Office Has Lost Count of His Properties

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 25:  New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg speaks at a news conference at City Hall where they announced that the two men accused of carrying out last week's bombing of the Boston Marathon planned an additional bomb attack on New York's Times Square on April 25, 2013 in New York City. In interrogations with younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, police have learned that the two had planned to take the car that they hijacked and its driver from Boston last Thursday night and to New York with bombs.  The plan was foiled after the car ran low on gas and the two brothers got into a firefight with police.  (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

Mayor Bloomberg added not one but two properties to his spread in Southampton, reporters eventually learned on Thursday, after the mayor's redacted tax returns showed the acquisition of just one property. After the press corps left the annual rite of viewing the mayor's financial statements and started writing stories about the new property he had added to his previous eleven, a member of his staff sent out an email informing them that the mayor had actually picked up two properties: a house and a 4.8-acre parcel of land. Both are adjacent to his 35-acre Southampton estate, but they had overlooked one. Not overlooked, according to Politicker: The less than $1,000 in residuals Bloomberg picked up from his cameo in the 2008 Muppets movie.
