FBI Investigates Small New York Town After It Bungled Big Baseball Stadium Deal

Let’s just say taxpayers are fed up.

A top elected official in Ramapo, NJ, pledged to bring a minor-league baseball team to the small town about 40 miles northwest of New York City if a new stadium was built at no cost to taxpayers, Bloomberg News reports.

Now,  taxpayers are on the hook for as much as $60 million in stadium costs – enough to draw the attention of the FBI.

Agents recently descended on the town and are now examining one of the state’s most fiscally stressed municipalities.

“This is the most dramatic scenario with a stadium I’ve heard of,” said John Dittrich, who has more than 40 years of experience as an executive in professional baseball. “If taxpayers are mad about the way it went down, they’re not going to be customers, and it hurts.”
