The NY Daily News takes a “no holds barred” position on allegations that Mayor Bill deBlasio engaged in wrongful campaign finance activity. From today’s editorial:
“After Mayor de Blasio built a velvet-roped VIP lounge for big-bucks City Hall favor-seekers, he nervily trumpeted his Campaign for One New York as a force fighting the corruptions of big money in politics.
So, New Yorkers, just wait to hear how de Blasio explains an elaborate money-grabbing scheme to help Democrats seize control of the state Senate — scathingly described by the state’s top election enforcer as a criminal racket calculated to evade campaign funding limits.
Progressive intentions in the up-is-down world of Bill de Blasio absolve all sins — but they can’t wash away threatening investigations by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance and U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.”
