Comptroller to de Blasio: Donít get involved in arrests (Banana Republic of NY)

City Comptroller Scott Stringer on Wednesday criticized Mayor de Blasio for personally intervening when a politically connected preacher pal was busted by cops — saying “the mayor shouldn’t be involved in any way when someone gets arrested.”...

“And I certainly believe the mayor and take the mayor’s word that this was certainly something that he was doing, not out of giving someone special treatment, but when you do make that call you do have to answer a lot of questions.”

New York state Republican Chairman Ed Cox called on Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to investigate what he called de Blasio’s “abuse of power.”

“New York’s law enforcement apparatus should be beyond reproach,” Cox said....

But a former Brooklyn prosecutor who recently left the District Attorney’s Office told The Post: “If you have just one open warrant, you get processed and you don’t get released.”

“The pastor had two — that’s a double whammy. It doesn’t matter how minor the crime is,” the ex-prosecutor said.

“I have prosecuted dozens of cases where someone with an open warrant for disorderly conduct or (an) open container had to spend a night at Rikers before being produced in court the next day.”....

Hey, if you can’t watch out for your friends all along the way, what’s the point of getting elected to important office? There is the circle of “protected people” that are to be regarded as untouchables, and it is disgraceful and demeaning to handle them in any other than with the greatest and most gingerly care. < /sarcasm >

City Comptroller Scott Stringer on Wednesday criticized Mayor de Blasio... busted by cops...

So, how is this any different with 'Rats (the mayor) calling on the IRS (the cops) to use their power against Tea Party 501(c) groups (conservatives)?

Stringer wasn’t the one busted - it was a De Blasio buddy, a left-wing “activist” black minister who had two open warrants that turned up when he was stopped for a traffic violation.

De Blasio got the minister sprung from jail, even though people normally get jailed until the warrants are sorted out.

Between this story yesterday and the fact that he kept City schools open today, it’s gonna be a tough weekend for the Mayor.
