DOI: Mayor has to repay presidential campaign security costs
During his presidential bid, Mayor Bill de Blasio used NYPD resources for his security detail, totaling more than $300,000.
As an NYC taxpayer… yeah, I agree. I don’t want to pay for his failed Presidential run. I want to pay for better transportation and education.
The report stated that the security detail was also found to have transported mayoral staffers, as well as guests of the mayor without de Blasio present in the vehicle, and that the detail also assisted staffers in running errands for the mayor.
So he was using security like an uber for friends.
"Don't call an Uber, I'll have a bunch of taxpayer funded folks pick you up to go to the club"
