Angel Gonzalez found out later that he had been talking to Brill at the PS 30/Harlem Success Invasion hearing (Don't miss the great videos) last week.
I hadn't realized that it was Brill that I was talking to at PS30 Hearing.
(Realized it was Brill that questioned me after doing a google image on him.)
As I confronted Ms Mockowitz on camera about her $370K, Brill interrupted and immediately started asking me (had gem button) "what is gem? where does GEM get its money, who pays for your blog?....Those were his immediate questions. I retorted that he could easily find out by going to our blog....and asserted that we were volunteers. Brill apparently can't fathom a solid persistent raucous army of volunteers.
He must think that gem is the left wing front of the UFT.
Brill seemed very chummy and cozy with Mockowitz (when I found them) so I very much suspect he is out to do reconnaissance for her Evildoers. Later, at the hearing, I gave him the Indypendent paper and told him to reprint the centerfold with the Naked expose' of those charter-capitalists/lovers. [see Ed Notes sidebar for links]
If the New Yorker lets Brill do another hack piece, I am going to use my copies for kitty litter.
