King of the hill, top of the heap.
During his mayoral campaign, Bill de Blasio railed against “special favors for well-connected corporations.” But now we’re learning the mayor dispenses his own favors for the well-connected.
A church pastor with outstanding warrants — and a position on Mayor de Blasio’s inaugural committee — dodged a night in the slammer after Hizzoner made a call to one of the city’s top cops.
Mayor’s Call Did Not Prompt Pastor’s Release, Police Say
They didn’t report on the story until they could get the right spin, they note others reported it but they’re here to set the record straight. Sure Hizzoner called the cops, but they didn’t let him go because of the call, they did it for totally unrelated reasons.
I figure it’s Sarah Palin’s fault.
I will apologize to all my NY reader(s), but I haven’t been to a bar in NY in over a decade so I haven’t had to put up with that song a dozen times as last call nears. I also haven’t worked in an Italian restaurant for 15 years so I am no longer sick of Frankie and Deano.
