Skip to comments.De Blasio’s Daughter Admits to Substance Abuse
Posted on 12/24/2013 11:00:18 AM PST by rickyrikardo
Chiara de Blasio, the 19-year-old daughter of Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, on Tuesday acknowledged a history of drug and alcohol problems, and said she had battled depression for most of her adolescence.
In a video released by her fathers campaign team, Ms. de Blasio said she had sought treatment for her troubles, which she said worsened when she left home for college in 2012.
It made it easier, the more I drank and did drugs, to share some common ground with people, Ms. de Blasio said, her voice accompanied by soft piano music. It didnt start out as like a huge thing for me, but then it became a really huge thing for me.
For months during the campaign, Mr. de Blasios aides declined to comment on rumors that his daughter struggled with substance abuse and was receiving treatment, despite repeated inquiries from reporters.

The trainwreck has only begun to wreck
I’d be on drugs too if my mother was a black lesbian and my father was a white queer.
A white Communist queer.
The low life now rules NYC!!! End of story!!!
de Blasio a new distraction from Obama ,LOL or The de Blasio Reality Show
You elected it, New Yorkers, now live with it.
Someone send her some scripts
Must have been the flowered head band.....
The father's campaign team. How nice daddy is exploiting his daughter's substance abuse problems.
She starts off as a victim. Let the pity begin. /s
All I can say is NYC is now Gomorrah on the Hudson..
Look at it this way. All those taxes she payed.
Too bad. She’s kinda cute.
I wonder what substance NYC voters were abusing to put a radical-leftist putz in the mayor’s office.
We may want to be careful treading here...Jeb Bush daughter Noelle has major drug issues...and has been jailed over it.
Just focus on whack job parents
Ever notice this crap comes out after the Rat safely wins election. Like Obama, all of sudden ABC produces that picture of him smoking a joint, and sitting next to his Pakistani BFF.
Also, if Blasio's addict/daughter gets off the stuff, it may help others to do the same.
If my father were a Commie dictator I would probably drink too so can’t say I blame her
I grew up in the five boroughs, and I lived under multiple mayors before escaping.
Still, this is very difficult to understand. How f***ed up Warren Wilhelm, or “Bill DeBlasio”, was, was readily apparent to anyone with half a brain. And it’s not as if Carlos Danger was any better.
Are we now going to see public officials chosen by a coalition of the weird?
This isn’t really a linear degeneration from Lindsay to Beame to Koch to Dinkens. This is a whole new thang.
I hope the press leaves her the Heck alone. Her parents are enough of a Circus Freak Show.
The children of Democrats get their MSM stories white washed ,sob storied or killed.
If deBlasio were mayor-elect of Chicago, the Chicago Mafia would have successfully bribed and threatened anyone interested in exposing his daughter’s problems so they would never have come to light.
The New York Democratic machine must be embarrassed at its powerlessness.
Contemporary public life would be more dignified if we simply installed Caligula’s horse in office.
“You elected it, New Yorkers, now live with it.”
Yes, as the Democrats like to say “elections have consequences”. Something tells me there’s going to be a big case of buyer’s remorse in New York.
Yeah, and Jeb Bush is a progressive NWO shill. Who cares?
Chiara De Blasio gets celebrated for her mess but Bristol Palin got excoriated for hers. Some sibling screw ups are more equal than others.
With a “Father” like that, small wonder
Welcome to The New Old Yuck
I was so hoping Weiner would have won, would have provided comedy material for the next couple of years....Plus, he probably still was the best one out of the bunch.
I would tend to agree with you yet the original source of the disclosure demands further analysis. We are dealing with democrats/progressives/communists/socialists (all the same to me) here. There is purpose to this action; I firmly believe this was done for political gain or as a greater scandal prophylaxis; question is what. Why bring the daughter’s problems to light and invite others to pry for no real reason? Perhaps there is worse than we have heard directly involving the “mayor” yet a little trickle will cause the media to say, “nothing else to see here, move along” thus putting an end/lid to further damning revelations or investigation. I do not accept the “pity” card being played. This people do not play that card until faced with real issues; IE they play the “pity” card on the defense not offense. I do not see any defense being played here and it would be novel to see potentially embarrassing revelations used as offense. I expect smarter folk than me will get to the bottom of this.
Regards and Merry Christmas.
With parents like she has, I’m surprised the poor girl hasn’t committed suicide by now. She has to suffer the pains of being a “Red Diaper Baby” for the rest of her life unless she gets away from them.
The Tea Party has a big tent, Chiara. Come on over, come on in. We have cookies, too.
Meanwhile, some children born to poor families can’t even get an education in elementary school let alone get into college.
Why the True Confessions now, on christmas eve? Maybe she expects a tabloid to spill the beans next month, and wants the public to hear her side first. Or this will lead up to her encouraging other young people to accept and adore ObamaCare.
Likely they’re trolling for a reality tv gig.
OUCH..! That's going to leave a mark.......
