Bill de Blasio’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week




US Attorney Grilling, DNC Loss and More Allegations of Pay-to-Play Dog 

‘Part-Time Bill’

New York, NY–February 27th…A four hour grilling by the U.S. Attorney, backing a loser for Democratic National Committee Chair and a new allegation of blatant pay-to-play–all have given Bill de Blasio a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week.

On Friday, Mayor de Blasio was questioned for more than four hours as part of the U.S. Attorney’s investigations about whether favors were given in exchange for donations to his now-shuttered Campaign for One New York fund. Indictments are expected soon from six separate investigations by two recently-formed grand juries impaneled by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance.

Mayor de Blasio wrote a Washington Post op-ed last week in favor of Rep. Keith Ellison for DNC Chair and traveled to Atlanta to campaign for him–despite reports he was told by Ellison aides not to. Ellison lost. He also puzzlingly campaigned for a Californian for vice-chair over two New York City elected officials Congresswoman Grace Meng and Assemblyman Michael Blake.

And today, a Daily News exclusivedetails new allegations of blatant pay-to-play fundraising involving a Brooklyn film company who felt pressured to donate–to the tune of $167,000–to de Blasio following direct requests from his staffers.

“While Bill de Blasio is distracted by corruption investigations and proving to be a bumbling loser in Democratic national politics, he’s failing in his job as mayor,” said New York Republican Chairman Ed Cox. “He’s more worried about who will be the Democrat’s next political boss and he can’t even get that right. Meanwhile, he has a homelessness crisis, incompetence in his children’s services agency and failing schools. New Yorkers deserve more than a part-time mayor.”
