REPORT: It Sure Looks Like NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio Took A Bribe

I know, a New York politician accepting bribes is totally inconceivable.



According to The New York Times, a campaign donor to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio secretly pleaded guilty in court to offering him a bribe, and “a federal criminal information in the case makes it clear that the donor, Harendra Singh, got something in return.”

That certainly gives credence to theorizing that de Blasio took a bribe. He has not been charged with anything of the sort.

The Times reports that Singh was attempting to obtain favorable lease terms for a restaurant he owned which happened to be on city property. Court documents revealed de Blasio aided Singh in exchange for the contributions; the documents also stated that an unnamed senior aide to Mr. de Blasio set up a meeting in order to urge a city agency to help Singh with the terms of the lease.

I wouldn't be surprised. Living and working in ny, there does appear to be corruption. I've seen first hand rampant cronyism and political patronage in hiring for local government here.
