The Journal News got Latimer on record admitting to over a thousand dollars in unpaid parking tickets — and not just Yonkers.
I went back to O’Brien at the DMV:
George Latimer has made a public statement that he has paid $1,400 in parking tickets to Yonkers but has still not re-registered his vehicle because, he says, the transmission has to be fixed.TOTS_WideMediaPolitics
Andrew Whitman launched right into questions on Latimer’s skipped senate votes and his trip to London with his girlfriend.TOTS_WideMediaPolitics
The email I got back from the DMV was more startling than I could have imagined. Not only was his registration suspended — it was STILL suspended months later. Why?
The suspension was effective July 22, 2017 and remains in effect.
I replied immediately;
Thank you, I have made out a public records request into Yonkers and so will wait to hear back on the tickets.
I am asking about this vehicle.
Revoked since July 22TOTS_WideMediaPolitics
A tip that there may be some reason Latimer should not have been driving the day of the crash led me to contact the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles on October 17th which led to an exchange of emails with a DMV Spokesperson Tim O’Brien:
I wrote a story about an MVA on 7/21/17 involving this person:
George S. Latimer
47 Wainwright Street
Rye, NY 10580
I have since been told there is some question as to whether they should have been driving at all but with no further explanation.TOTS_WideMediaPolitics
Two day later, having combed through ALL of George Latimer’s social media postings, I prepared a follow story on Latimer’s hypocrisy:

NRHS Visual Arts Sculpture students visit Storm King Arts CenterRate Article: 0 Your rating: None 0 No votes yet
NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Sculpture students in the New Rochelle High School Visual Arts program recently learned where to go to find art that is too large to hang on a wall, place on a pedestal, or even fit in a building. On a trip to Storm King Art Center in Orange County, they found a wide variety of sculptures, including some that towered over them.
"It opens their eyes to art as being not just something in a museum or a gallery," said teacher Joanna Schomber. "Some of the sculptures are two or three stories high."New RochelleEducation
