More de Blasio Cronies Eyed As Feds Widen Corruption Probe

The investigation into NYC Hall campaign activities is widening, according to a New York Post article by Michael Gartland, Jamie Schram and Yoav Gonen. From the story:

“A top aide to Mayor de Blasio and a consulting firm that helped him win City Hall are under investigation as part of a widening state and federal corruption probe — all sparked by a suspected gifts-for-favors scheme involving top NYPD brass, The Post has learned.

Emma Wolfe, de Blasio’s director of intergovernmental affairs, and BerlinRosen Public Affairs are being probed by the Manhattan DA’s Office and federal prosecutors for their roles in fund-raising by de Blasio during his failed 2014 bid to help fellow Democrats take over the state Senate, multiple sources close to the investigation said.

Other names probers are asking about as they cast a widening net for possible quid-pro-quo campaign dealings include Alison Hirsh, an official with the powerful 32BJ apartment-workers union; Natalia Salgado, who last year left 32BJ to work for state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman; and Jason Goldman, who at the time was a strategist for the United Federation of Teachers, sources told The Post.”
