Bill de Blasio Re-Elected To Second Term As NYC Mayor

New York Post

Excerpt:

Mayor de Blasio was projected as the winner of his re-election battle for mayor Tuesday night — cruising to victory against his main challenger Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis.

The mayor had about 65 percent of the vote compared to the Staten Island Republican’s paltry 28 with more than 86 percent of the precincts reporting.

“I entered this race with eyes wide open knowing the odds were stacked against,” Malliotakis admitted after her defeat.

“But from the very beginning this race was never about me. It was about all of you.”

De Blasio garnered less of the vote than in his 2013 contest — where he bested Republican Joe Lhota with 73 percent of the vote.

The mayor overcame a corruption scandal that loomed over City Hall for months until prosecutors in March ended an investigation of his fund-raising practices without filing charges — while leveling harsh criticism of his end run around election laws.

Voters also weren’t swayed by recent courtroom testimony in which admitted pay-to-play crook Jona Rechnitz claimed that six-figure donations scored him direct access to the mayor.

Never behind in the polls and facing underfunded challengers, de Blasio skated in without addressing major problems simmering since he took office in 2014.

With homelessness at near-record levels and the subways crumbling amid his escalating feud with Gov. Cuomo, the mayor has his work cut out for him in his second term.

Despite pledging “more transparency in government” during his 2013 campaign, de Blasio had to be sued by The Post and NY1 to cough up his e-mails with political advisers he claimed were “agents of the city.”

He has since refused to release records of his phone calls with Rechnitz.

“This whole agents-of-the-city debacle was a huge embarrassment,” said John Kaehny of the good-government NYC Transparency Working Group.

De Blasio told the state Financial Control Board in 2014 that he’d “constantly watch our fiscal dynamics and ensure they are sustainable,” then presided over a series of budgets that raised spending by more than 20 percent and added 31,000 workers to the public payroll.

Retired library researcher John Ferretti, 75, of Washington Heights, said the mayor’s “bloated payroll” spurred him to vote for Nicole Malliotakis.

“He’s just out of it,” Ferretti said. “He’s corrupt and subscribes to socialist values which I absolutely deplore.”

:shrug: NYC is dominated by the core of democrat constituencies: entertainers, unions, welfare legions, illegals, and the deceased. Did anyone expect any different?

What passes for an "average American" doesn't live in NYC, at least Manhattan.

There are a few, my brother and sister-in-law for example, who live in one of the 5 boroughs but unfortunately conservatives are becoming an endangered species in New York.

A republican would have to have be well known as accomplishing something (like Guiliani) or be larger than life (though not known as an asshat like Bo Deitl) to get elected mayor in NYC. Mallitokis or whatever her name is didn’t stand a chance, despite Deblasio not getting any major newspaper endorsements.

This is the true tragedy of yesterday's election and all the fault lies in the Republican party who nominated nothing but a sacrificial lamb. 'Major newspaper endorsements' are not worth the paper they are printed on. DeBlasio would have won with or without them. But you are right, a crooked, incompetent, window licking idiot with a 'D' after his name will always beat a too young, charisma free, unknown with an 'R' after hers in that town.

Thank you. I also have a conservative sister and brother-in-law who live in California and my husband and I live in our newly minted "blue" state of Virginia so I guess we're just asking for it. :P
