According to a new report, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and four of his top aides allegedly used personal email accounts for city business — sometimes in violation of guidelines.

A Department of Investigation (DOI) document, obtained by The New York Times under the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL), found de Blasio’s personal email address appeared 1,850 times — more times than any of his aides — when conducting city business and also provides previously undisclosed details about the mayor’s efforts to assist a donor embroiled in a multimillion-dollar lease dispute with the city.

The city agency’s finding came as part of a federal investigation into de Blasio’s fundraising. The investigation is attempting to determine whether de Blasio and others solicited donations from people looking for favors from the city.

“Employees are supposed to use their government email for government work. That’s always been the protocol and we remind City Hall and agency staff of that frequently. We consider personal email and documents in someone’s personal possession subject to FOIL when they relate to government business.”

The wider investigation into the mayor’s fund-raising examined his 2013 campaign; his efforts to raise money for his now-defunct political nonprofit group, the Campaign for One New York; and his efforts to raise money for a bid by Democrats to retake control of the State Senate in 2014 that proved unsuccessful.

The document, obtained under the state Freedom of Information Law, focuses on the city agency’s work as part of a federal investigation into Mr. de Blasio’s fund-raising. The agency took part in a review of the mayor’s extensive and longstanding efforts to assist a campaign donor, Harendra Singh, a restaurant owner whose Long Island City wedding venue, Water’s Edge, was located on land it leased from the city.

During that inquiry, in addition to scrutinizing Mr. de Blasio’s efforts on behalf of Mr. Singh, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and prosecutors examined his involvement with a number of other donors, zeroing in on several who had sought favorable treatment from the city. (Mr. Singh was later arrested on unrelated corruption charges just as he was concluding negotiations that would have resulted in a much more favorable settlement of the lease dispute. He subsequently cooperated with the fund-raising inquiry.)

Look, this is so corrupt it’s ridiculous.


What a scumbag.

God Bless.
