Lots of dough spent by DeBlasio

From the NY Post:

Mayor de Blasio’s office refuses to explain several lavish expenses incurred during his transition.

The mayor-in-waiting’s aides spent $601 for one night at The W Hotel in DC on Dec. 12 — the night before de Blasio met with President Obama and other mayors in the nation’s capital — and $1,142 for one night at The St. Regis, also in Washington, Dec. 16.

It’s not clear who stayed at The St. Regis, since de Blasio’s public schedule shows he was in New York on both Dec. 16 and 17.

The transition team’s other unexplained charges include nearly $2,000 for JetBlue tix and more than $3,000 for Amtrak.

Campaign Finance Board guidelines require that contributions raised by winning candidates after the election be “in furtherance of the candidate-elect’s transition and/or inauguration into office.”

But the mayor’s press office has refused to explain how the charges meet that requirement, despite touting “transparency.”

Populist ideology based entirely on cronyism that would not be able to gain any traction without the silence of the media. This mayor has shown his hypocrisy time and again. And another thing, his inability to shoe up on time is a sign of his contempt for others. It's a leftist thing

Can you spell S-L-E-A-Z-E-B-A-L-L C-R-O-O-K?

He will eff something up bigtime, as will his two lying, corrupt henchwomen MK and MMV!

They all think they're a lot smarter than they really are. They're just incredibly arrogant, a la the Big Fat Boy over in NJ. MMV especially comes across as a nasty bitch. I would not want to cross her.

None of them will make it through their first term.

A piker compared to Crowley.

I have yet to see this guy interfere with the election process to put a crony before the public trough.

"$3,000 for Amtrak."

The next twelve years of Mayor Fugazio should be a laugh riot.

Yea,we should get a list of Crowley "appointees" and see how effective they are as "public" servants and how much they get "reimbursed."

While we are at it, how about "his" judges and how they are rated.

You want want to throw rocks Joe make sure you don't live in glass (Virginia) houses.

Ever been to Queens political functions, or even better, Queens charity events?

Don't get out much, eh?

He's a champion of the middle class, right?

Well, at least he says he is. And for liberal politicians that's good enough.

(No, its not a good life style for a congressman's family)

I'm sure there's not a problem here. Saint Duh-Blazio, having been annointed by the idiot voters of NYC for the next 12 years, can't possibly have misjudged this fine upstanding public servant.
