New York City is embroiled in a major bribery and corruption case.

Involved are people close to Mayor de Blasio and his campaign funding that has been under investigation.

All kinds of payoffs, promises, gifts and wire fraud.

Lower levels of people are implicated too !!

Interesting story ..........

3 NYPD commanders, including deputy chief, arrested on corruption charges


Three ranking officials with the New York Police Department have been arrested and charged with violating federal corruption rules, as part of a federal investigations of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s campaign fundraising.

Deputy Chief Michael J. Harrington, Deputy Inspector James M. Grant, and former Sergeant David Villanueva, all of the NYPD, were arrested early Monday and are expected to appear Monday afternoon in a Manhattan federal court. Also charged was Jeremiah Reichberg, a Brooklyn businessman and donor to Mayor de Blasio, according to court papers. The charges in the case include bribery, honest services wire fraud, and conspiracy.

Harrington and Grant allegedly accepted bribes, including a 2013 trip to Las Vegas for Super Bowl weekend while accompanied by a prostitute and other “prime seats to sporting events,” as well as meals and free domestic and overseas trips, according to court documents.

The establishment, especially the cops, hate this guy.

Apparently they feel that he's sided with the minority communities over the police.

I dunno, seems like a decent guy, who knows anymore.

I doubt N.Y. City has improved since Serpico (however his name is spelled). Many reports and testimonies of the reality of that den of vipers. However in the cities defense I doubt they can hold a candle to Chicago.

C'mon. Some towns are just too damn big. There IS corruption. NY? Why not? Chicago? I think everyone learned from that city. Pointing out the obvious is, what? Redundant? The only reason is because it a Dem. Enjoy.
