Shoveling Snow In Iowa!


Yesterday, our Councilman Bill de Blasio was still "visiting family" in Iowa! But shoveling snow for Hillary Clinton is more like it.

The New York Observer caught up with him and asked about Mayor Bloomberg's chances as an independent presidential candidate. The article by Azi Paybarah is entitled:
De Blasio Ready To Shovel For Hillary, Doesn't See Room For Bloomberg

Below is one of the reader comments attached to the article: Very telling

It is interesting that Council Member De Blasio is among the many New York City Council Members who voted themselves a 25 percent pay increase -on top of their base salaries of $90,000 - for what is supposed to be their part-time City Council job. As Council Member De Blasio and other New York City Council Members have been in Iowa for the past few days and will continue to be there through Wednesday, it might be insightful if the City Council Speaker or the New York City press could ascertain which days they were actually at work at the New York City government jobs for which our taxes are paying them.

To tell you the truth, I'm friends with Bill de Blasio's cousin (from college) and I know for a fact that he lives in Iowa. So while it's clear he's in Iowa for Hillary, he may also be visiting family. It ain't no lie.

So Bill has a cousin in Iowa? That's nice.
I was starting to think that Hillary was related to him...
But seriously, though he may have a relative or two in Iowa, we all know the real reason for the visit. He was certainly too busy with the presidential campaign to have much time for family.
By the way, does anyone know if he is getting paid by the Clinton Campaign?
