Politicians get in the act: Terminate Citigroups deal with the Mets and Citi Field.

Well it seems the fact that Citigroup has asked congress for and received 45 billion in bail out money should have there 400 million dollar contract terminated with the New York Mets.

In the Huffingtonpost this article point outs that “Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, one of the House's most liberal Democrats, and Texas Rep. Ted Poe, one of the most conservative Republicans, see a problem with the $400 million contract. The duo wrote newly-confirmed Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner Thursday urging him to nix the deal.”

"We request that you intervene and demand that Citigroup dissolve the agreement they have with the New York Mets," reads the letter. They feel that if they agreement is not terminated that Citi group should return the bail out money.

Well I am sure that this will not happen but be nice to see this pick up some steam. I always thought having Shea not bought out by some Corporation was something that just made good ole Shea and the organization stand out.

Of course the Mets might take issue with this.
