This may be fun to watch

It didn't take long for Clinton to double cross New York City. Six months into her tenure as secretary of state she has suddenly exempted diplomats from paying some property taxes there. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said her betrayal has cost the city $260 million in lost tax revenues and counting. As New York's junior senator, Clinton fought to make diplomats pay up. And he said her reversal changes a longstanding policy. "Since 1873 they've been saying this is taxable," Bloomberg said.
As might be expected, the senior Senator from New York, Charles "where is the camera" Schumer, will get involved. "We're going to find a way to make sure that these embassies pay and that New York is made whole," Schumer said.

Let the fun begin.
