Asked why the mayor of New York donated $200,000 to an Idaho school reform ballot measure campaign, a spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg's press office said, "I don't know the answer. ... We're a little wall-to-wall right now." The city is in the midst of coping with the giant superstorm that's hit the east coast. "That's a separate operation, the mayor's private money," the spokesman said. "This is city hall. ... I will pass this along and see if I can have someone get back to you."
