Jona Sings! Mayor de Blasio’s Free Ride Re-Election Campaign Gets Cock-Blocked

Impeccable, uncanny and unfortunate timing for the reigning mayor of the boroughs 5. Testifying during the bribery, racketeering and pension money laundering trial against former jails union head Norman Seabrook, Rechnitz was approached by the prosecutor about his relationship in the first year of hizzoner’s term, seeing that it was this transgression that got him embroiled in the current case he’s providing witness testimony for. Suffice to say, it looks like Jona stopped giving a fuck and responded like a player who himself got played like a sucker by the ambitious and ultimately ungrateful mayor and getting the brunt of it by getting incarcerated.

Rechnitz dropped the proverbial bomb about de Faustio’s willingness to dole city government service favors by all means necessary. Jona, with his donations and from various straw donors totaling around $193,000, was a de facto chief of staff for the morally loose mayor. He demanded to basically appoint the commissioners for the police and the Department of Buildings. He arranged luxury trips for NYPD higher brass with his pick Phillip Banks and Norman Seabrook for which he played a literal bag man by giving him his bribe in a Sal Ferragamo bag.

De Faustio, despite his persistent and constant denials and of course his mealy self-serving blog posts on Medium, seemed for a few years to enjoy and relish the company he kept. And also the new found power 75% of the 21% of the registered voters gave him. Being that he graciously gave his favorite donor his personal phone number and e-mail, messaging and reassuring his bubby that he was “all ears“.  That he actually held out playing for Jona’s pay by being slow (natch) to reduce utility bills, lift fines and violations on a properties he managed. Ordering his minion and campaign manager and CONY bundler Ross Offinger to hassle Jona for more cash. And needling Jona to coax Norman to stifle his opinions on the qualifications and character of Joe Ponte, the incompetent, disgraced boob de Faustio picked for jails commissioner.

There really should be no more argument of the character of our current mayor. Although the collective shenanigans of these and the machinations executed by these two like-minded fellows and the circumstances that ensued make a very interesting plot device. Jona’s is obvious, but the Mayor’s suspicious actions that followed his former bubby’s arrest and conviction is very interesting.

Consider when he ended his CONY fundraising and his agents of the city meetings in city hall. What followed immediately was his morning commute habit of going to the Y in Park Slope for workouts then trekking to Park Row to start the day in his official office at 11 a.m.. It has to be considered, especially when he got confronted by an activist who questioned him about the Rikers closing during his yoga workout wearing the inappropriate attire of cargo shorts, a belt and sneakers. And also of his redacted email releases titled “FLEX TIME“. Was “FLEX TIME” actually correspondence and more pay to play arrangements with other donors/the usual suspects? And what about him using his personal email and phone number for these conversations?

Another thing about those redacted emails mainly what actually was redacted in the ones involving Jona? Did de Faustio actually did confirm his picks for D.O.B. and NYPD? Especially the latter because Phil Banks was a favorite to get the job before he abruptly dropped out. Were any of the emails related to the illicit gun licensing?

And one more thing concerning “flex time”, was the Park Slope Y the new venue for de Faustio’s continuing courting of big time developer donor cash and advice from those agents of the city?

Jona’s recollections in court are equal parts super revealing, actually sincere and has a touch of braggadocio about it being the temporary mack daddy he was. It also takes a big shit on the mayor’s crowd surfing his way back into elected office and the pathetic attempt at transparency and credibility he is trying to build.

This is going to make the next debate more raucous than the last one. The difference though is that candidate Nicole Malliotakis has the advantage. And she did not wait to pounce either.

Karma is quite the motherfucker. The supposedly unopposed free ride is over for de Faustio. And even if he does win, with this way overdue damning revelation, he will eventually regret doing so much cheating for the power and privilege of the seat he holds and the damage to the city and his constituency that his selective policy making caused. Which will be enough to kick his big slow ass out that even the Democrat Machine D.A.’s will have to dredge legitimate charges this time.

Now the Campaign Finance Board wants to take another look at the shady donations Offinger goaded Jona for and de Faustio slovenly accepted. You know, to see if there were any improprieties involved. This after they gave the mayor millions of matching funds to his campaign despite having a massive lead over his Democrat challenger Sal Albanese.

For months the mayor was running free and now he’s running away from the truth and accountability. Again.

But he can’t run from the fact that he, as Mayor, ultimately played himself.

Update!

After 2 days of evading the press, Mayor Big Slow de Blasio addressed journalists about his former donor Jona Rechnitz by calling him (projecting him as) a criminal, a horrible person and a liar, and how he can’t (won’t) remember contacting him about telling          Norman Seabrook to lay off road trippin’ Joe Ponte. And how he can’t remember being even in the same room with him, despite photographic proof like the photo above.

So that’s that, voters. The mayor of NYC is lying to you. To your faces. This is beyond plausible deniability, it’s recklessly brazen deniability. This recent nauseating public gesture by de Faustio is the worst case and amateurish usage of Goebbels’ method of telling a lie often enough so it becomes true.

What’s really pathetic about Da Mayor is that he is tripping over himself despite getting off without being charged last spring. He could just easily admit dealing with his felonious friend and just say money and politics are a way of life and legally accepted because of the McDonnell v United States SCOTUS decision and running city government honestly and ethically is virtually impossible. It would convey a sense of pragmatism, which was the basis in 2 books prematurely released about his short time in elected office, which he misspent a bulk of it networking, fundraising, commuting 4 hours to work every morning, on trial, and napping.

I guess despite the heinous legitimacy of it, you just cannot consciously come off not looking like a two-faced unethical scumbag for engaging in such behavior.

What a stupid fucking idiot.
