Report: de Blasio hasn’t repaid NYC funds he used for his failed presidential campaign

Source: CNBC

“New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has not paid back nearly $320,000 in public money used to fund the security detail that traveled with him during his aborted presidential campaign, a new report said Thursday. The city investigators looking into the use of de Blasio’s security detail also concluded that the officer in charge of the mayor’s security unit ‘actively obstructed and sought to thwart’ their probe. The 47-page report from the New York City Department of Investigations came more than two years after the investigators launched a probe into allegations that de Blasio’s security detail had been misused for personal or political benefit. … The report arrived as de Blasio, who will step down as mayor when his final term ends this year, is reportedly planning a run for governor.” (10/07/21)
