Bill de Blasio has no business running a lemonade stand. But, the voters of New York City thought it would be fun to make him mayor of America’s biggest city.
It’s been a disaster. Remember how he botched his relationship with the NYPD to the point where officers were turning their backs to him at a funeral?
Now, it looks like de Blasio has another serious problem on his hands. He could be facing a criminal indictment in the near future…
From Breitbart: Two separate grand juries in Manhattan, one federal and one state, have reportedly started hearing testimonies relating to criminal investigations into Democratic New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s campaign fundraising with possible pay-to-play violations.
According to the New York Times, these grand jury actions represent “the strongest indication” yet that indictments could be forthcoming.
The federal investigation, which was launched by Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, is reportedly examining whether de Blasio or his aides conducted political favors for donors in exchange for contributions made to his 2013 mayoral campaign.
These two investigations are part of five that were initially brought upon de Blasio and his staff and which have for the most part dealt with fundraising by the mayor and organizations that are affiliated with his office.
Pay to play? Sounds about right. He is a Democrat after all. The sooner this guy is gone the better it will be for New Yorkers.
