Robbins' Story Wins IRE Recognition

The IRE has awarded a certificate to Tom Robbins of The Village Voice for "Lush Life of Rudy Appointee," which proved the virtual, nonstop spending spree of tax dollars by an aide of former New York Mayor Giuliani on items for himself and his friends. The Voice's request for documents and subsequent reporting led to a 17-count indictment this week against Russell Harding, former president of the New York Housing Development Corporation.
