JJOKE top ten list aka why Milgrim should be fired

JJOKE today cancelled their commission meeting but sent out a press release listing the top ten lobbyists for the first half of 2014.

I guess you have to give them credit for doing something more than the old lobby commission did.  We used to release the figures at the end of the year in an annual report and hold a press conference to answer any questions.

Releasing the information at the half way point is probably a smart way to get a days worth of news coverage BUT

When you deal with numbers and top ten lists those numbers better be accurate AND THEY ARE NOT

Number 10 on the list is Robert Unger.  Now I'm sure Mr. Ungar has a nice little lobbying business but top ten? I DON'T THINK SO.

And sure enough Mr. Unger had a $1.6 million typo on his bimonthly report for his client Intermedix.

End result Mr. Ungar makes the top ten when he didn't belong there which means someone who really was number ten is not on the list.  OOOOPS

Lies, damn lies and statistics.

Or in JJOKE's case incompetance , lack of attention to detail and Milgrim

On my top one list of JJOKE employees to get the ax . . .  John Milgrim with a bullet.

But it gives me an idea  anyone that wants to make the top ten list for 2014 give me a call I'll show you how to have a typo in your Nov/Dec report putting you in the top ten and then in April next year we can fix it after the list comes out.
