Civic Center – De Blasio Says He Faces ‘Double Standard’ on Federal Fundraising Probes

(DNAINFO)  Jeff Mays | April 29, 2016 — In spite of the investigations, the mayor says he is accomplishing his agenda.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said he is being “singled out” by a federal probe into his efforts to raise money for upstate senate candidates in 2014 and that a “double standard” was being applied around election laws he’s accused of violating.

“The question is what does the law allow and what is appropriate under the law,” de Blasio said Friday morning on “The Brian Lehrer Show” on WNYC.
