Dark clouds loom over de Blasio

Reuters: Corruption charges against a union leader and a financier stemming from state and federal investigations that include an examination of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s campaign fundraising practices are casting a cloud over his office and could possibly complicate his re-election bid.

The arrests on Wednesday of the head of New York City’s prison guard union and a hedge fund financier accused of orchestrating a bribery scheme involving union retirement and operating funds were the first to emerge from the probes.  MORE

  1. Couldn’t happen to a nicer schmuck.

    I truly loathe this guy. Along with Obama and Cuomo, he’s the holy trinity of pols I would like to see impeached/assassinated.

  2. He must be the sacrificial goat to Cuomo’s exoneration.
    The corruption runs deep across America and you almost have to close your eyes not to see it. Makes you wonder WHY – when they DO pick one – what the reasoning is.

  3. Corruption charges are street cred for the democrats. Add the race angle, with his wife and kids, and he would make a good running mate for Hillary.

    …he would make a good running mate for Hillary.

    Yes! I’d like to see the two of them running together through a swamp trying to get away from an angry mob with torches and pitchforks and pails of hot tar.

  5. …..casting a cloud over his office”.

    And that’s probably all you’ll ever see is a passing shadow then it’s business as usual.

  6. Trump backed him when he ran for office.
    If his buddy gets the White House gig, things will look up for him.

  7. JohnS,
    In a previous post you whined that BFH only posted stuff about supporting Trump or National Enquirer type fluff. Here you got a real story, about corruption in NYC and YOU turn it into an anti-Trump rant.

    Your fucking stooge.

    izlamo delenda est …

  8. Tim, are you saying Trump was wrong to support deblasio?
    That is a serious charge, as Trump knows deblasio VERY well.
    Sounds more to me like you are doing an anti-Trump rant.
    I didn’t say anything negative about Trump, only that he could likely help his friend out even more once in office.
