Big news out of New York City today for Hillary supporter Bill de Blasio, Mayor of New York.
According to The Hill:
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) could face legal trouble for “willful and flagrant” fundraising violations, a head investigator for the state’s Board of Elections determined, according to a New York Daily News report.
“I have determined that reasonable cause exists to believe a violation warranting criminal prosecution has taken place,” Board of Elections Chief Enforcement Officer Risa Sugarman wrote in a memo to the board’s commissioners in January. “The violations discovered by this investigation can only be described as willful and flagrant.”The board has referred the criminal investigation to the Manhattan Defense Attorney’s office but it is now part of a larger probe by the DA and Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office.
In the memo, Sugarman discusses what might have been a coordinated effort between de Blasio and his allies to circumvent legal campaign donation limits.”
