“On the Friday of Labor Day weekend Bill de Blasio released his long waited Op-Ed which was meant to defend his administrations ethically challenged forays into the pay-to play world of transactional politics. Frankly, his Op-Ed is a whole lot of nothing; he never names a contributor and never identifies a single project.
“Considering the scandals, the local and federal investigations and continued inquires from the media you would have thought Bill de Blasio would have much more to say.

Until we get those answers the Bill De Blasio Count-Up Clock on my website will continue to count the days.”
