He said, 'Listen, dude, if I go back to the office without violations on you, they're going to think you bribed me.' I said, 'That's a fucked up system!' He goes, 'Yup. There were a lot of inspectors taking bribes, they did a huge revamp at the DOH and they told me if we come back without a violation they're going think we were bribed.'" [Gothamist]
