When New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced recently that hed make banning the citys horse-drawn carriages his first priority, a lot of people were left asking, Really? Could This be the Reason De Blasio Decided to Go After Horse Carriages in NYC?
Indeed, for all the problems de Blasio claims the city struggles with, it would seem horse-drawn carriages would take a back seat. But they havent and hes pursuing the ban.
And there may be a reason why: A major de Blasio campaign donor and real-estate executive may be tied up in the drive to banish the iconic carriages, according to The American Spectator.
Its got everything a scandal could ever want, Eva Hughes, vice-president of the Horse and Carriage Association of New York City, said in the report.

No way a democrat and a New Pol would be involved in any plan to steal tax money from the city’s coffers on some scam project. We need to just move a long....end sarcasm
A-ha “re-purposing” some prime real estate!
And I figured it was cronys who were going to sell the electric buggy replacements.
Say it ain’t so Massah Bill!
My reaction, too—so fast, making it so obvious... have we fallen so far that it is reasonable to think we wouldn’t notice, or is DeBlasio that inartful in repaying his favors?
I could see this as far away as Mississippi. Yanks think we folks down here just ride and fall off turnip trucks.
or maybe when De Blasio looks in a mirror he sees a Horse
I think he's just following the example of the Chicago Mob and the Clinton Crime Family. Do the deed, and if anybody notices, change the subject.
“or maybe when De Blasio looks in a mirror he sees a Horse”
When I look at him, I see the southbound end of a northbound horse.
Not a scandal. Mayor is ‘Rat media darling.
Not that I’m a proponent of Savage, he just took over the local 3:00 p.m. time slot on WJR but he busted this story yesterday..........
Way to go NYC- Your mayor is turning out to be a a real piece of work and he hasn't even been in office for a week.
Though the given reason is the welfare if the horses, I still maintain that Marxist POS doesn’t like the bourgeois appearances of people riding around in carriages while the masses are in foot. Symbolism is a big deal among communists.
*of the horses
New York gets the hell it deserves.
"Tell you what, Mayor, let's play a game of HORSE. I'll be the front end and you just be yourself."
Yes, it’s true.
