Don’t forget the city council had to change their own term limit law to let him run a third time.
Its worse than ‘no pushback’. He seems to be a favored son.
The city council was bribed to do so (it enabled its members to run for more terms as well), it caused a significant controversy and fueled the Liu candidacy. New Yorkers went to the courts to have it overturned, then when they were denied they filed to have a referendum on the issue and when that was denied they brought it to the state legislature, where the GOP let it die in committee.
Again, a lot of posters here seem to do very little homework when it comes to badmouthing NYC.
Its worse than no pushback. He seems to be a favored son.
So favored that he won by less than 1% in an election where the turnout was less than 30%?
Give me a break.
NYC politics are broken and Bloomberg has spent hundreds of millions to exploit the holes in the system.
If you hadn't noticed, the guy gets booed at every public event that it isn't a fundraiser he's hosting.
New York City politics is just Chicago with less testosterone but just as crazy, corrupt, and communist (marxist, statist, authoritarian).
