To Avoid Ethics Questions, Binghamton Mayor Should Have Paid For Las Vegas Trip Himself, Says Philosophy Professor

Earlier this month, Mayor Rich David’s longtime friend, Adam Weitsman, an area business man, paid for him and their friends to fly to Las Vegas and watch a UFC fight. David says they’re just good friends and Weitsman doesn’t have any business before the City. Still, it doesn’t look good.
“I mean, he could have paid for the trip himself, right?” said Anthony Reeves, political philosophy professor at Binghamton University.
