Finance Commissioner Stark resigns, but the Yankee Stadium issue is ignored

New York City Department of Finance Commissioner Martha Stark has resigned, in the wake of questions about conflict of interest and concerns about her significant outside income.

There's a brief mayoral statement. But none of the coverage so far--see, for example, the Times, Daily News, and Crain's--raises any questions about what may be the most significant cloud over Stark and her former subordinate (and current consort) Dara Ottley-Brown: their role in the swift and curious reassessment of the Yankee Stadium site.
