Mayor Bill de Blasio admitted Monday he has a long history of doing favors for community members who need help with city business — but claims it’s OK because he “never pressures” his department heads.
During his first interview since being grilled Friday by federal prosecutors reviewing his campaign fundraising, de Blasio tried to paint a rosy picture of the more than four-hour meeting by telling NY1 it went “fine.”
However, he declined to discuss specifics about the session. Hizzoner also would neither confirm nor deny various media reports over the weekend that he helped Brooklyn Rabbi Moishe Indig, who raised money for him, in getting the Buildings Department in 2014 to lift a partial vacate order at a Hasidic school.
“I am not going to go into the tick-tock of it all,” said de Blasio.
Off with his head!!
Besides the countless actions including refusing to plow certain parts of the City, failing to stick up from the Police Force, and screwing up at least 50% of his decisions, here we have De Blasio maybe digging his own grave?
He says it’s okay because he “never pressures”
Yeah suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure, whenever my boss asks me to do something I don’t feel pressured to do this.
“Helping” out your friends is just a part of politics, but it is an unspoken bond. De Blasio has violated that now and people have something tangible to attack him with, his own words.
De Blasio’s time as mayor is dwindling
