From the NY Post:
Bill de Blasio presided over millions of dollars in wasted taxpayer money when he oversaw the federal government’s public-housing programs in New York and New Jersey, records show.
He served as director of the New York-New Jersey region for the Department of Housing and Urban Development from 1997 to 1999. In that time, HUD’s inspector general reported that the region lost about $23 million to scams perpetrated by public-housing officials, mortgage companies and nonprofits that got grants from HUD.
Other accounts put the loss much higher. In a Dec. 14, 2000, article, The New York Times reported that several people defrauded HUD of $70 million in federally insured loans on more than 250 New York properties from 1998 to 1999.
Susan Gaffney, HUD’s inspector general, described extensive illegal activity by nonprofit groups at the time as “unique to New York.”
New York City — by far HUD’s largest grantee — received $1 billion annually from the agency during de Blasio’s tenure.

Shame on our news organizations for not exposing this sooner, but it just shows what democrats really are. Next time he says he fighting for the middle class someone should tell hum to just shut up
Another HUD Baby! Good God isn't son of Mario enough?
Fact of the matter is, the Democrats caused the housing crisis and the Great Recession.
Check it out here.
Screw DiBlasio and all his illegals!! Go right ahead and mess this city up worst than it is! Bloomdick doubled ny debt,Diblasio is going to triple it!
Wilhelm Di B is on my shit list. No vote for you from this Italian-American!
Truer words were never spoken, George.
Democrats have always imported their votes...going back to the potato famine Irish...when boss Tweed was running things.
It's the Democrats who perpetuate intergenerational welfare! Their social benefit programs are there to mainly benefit Democratic pols. They live large on the backs of their voter serfs.
Mark Green was another laughable "public advocate" just like Di Blasio...with a track record of little more than having a big mouth...pure showmanship sprinkled with dung.
Di Blasio will wind up advocating for the Real Estate Board of New York if he becomes our next mayor.
VOTE LHOTA! He was a good deputy mayor with far better experience in government.
commie bastards are all around our nys government......
