The GOP’s Mayoral Candidate. Seriously.

BY DUNCAN OSBORNE| As she was discussing crime and the extent to which New York City residents feel safe in the city, Nicole Malliotakis, the presumptive Republican candidate for mayor and a member of the State Assembly since 2011, was asked about her continuing opposition to the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA), which would add gender […]

Under de Blasio, Bulk of Pot Arrestees Black or Latino

BY NATHAN RILEY | Despite the fact that Democrats continue to become more dependent on reliable voting support from communities of color, groups fighting the criminalization of marginalized New Yorkers report that under Mayor Bill de Blasio virtually everyone arrested for marijuana is black or Latino.

From Bratton, A New Direction Needed

BY NATHAN RILEY | For Bill de Blasio and William Bratton’s NYPD to make a clean break with the troubled recent past, there must be a fundamental redefinition of the crime problem in New York City. No doubt due in large measure to the massive focus on the abuses of stop and frisk, Commissioner Ray Kelly, […]

De Blasio’s Progressive Values Showing Teflon Strength

BY NATHAN RILEY | Bill de Blasio is showing a remarkable immunity to charges he is too far to the left. In part, his success can be traced to Occupy Wall Street, which put income redistribution and the progressive economics the Democratic mayoral nominee emphasizes on the political map. Also, Joe Lhota, the Republican candidate, is […]

Oops! Is that a Rudin Guy With Bill de Blasio?

BY PAUL SCHINDLER | Just as Bill de Blasio is enduring a blistering television attack from Christine Quinn challenging his progressive credentials on housing and stop and frisk, a video has surfaced showing the public advocate campaigning with a top real estate industry lobbyist.
