An architect of the Yankee Stadium deal was an IRS insider

The AmLaw Daily blog explains that the one architect of the Yankee Stadium financing deal was a real insider:
Nixon Peabody public finance partners Bruce Serchuk and Mitchell Rapaport were retained by the Yankees and the New York City Industrial Development Agency (NYCIDA), an arm of the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC). Serchuk, who worked in the office of tax policy at the Treasury Department and in the IRS's chief counsel office, is considered one of the primary architects of the Yankees's strategy to obtain over $940 million in tax-exempt bonds to help finance construction for the team's new stadium, set to open on April 16 of next year.
