Dead child and social workers arrested.
A former Bloomberg aide dishes dirt on Bloomberg' third term (anonymously, of course):
From outside City Hall, meanwhile, veterans of Mr. Bloomberg’s inner circle say that the dynamic between the mayor and his deputies appears to have changed in unhealthy ways since his first two terms, following the departures of some senior officials.
“His administrative style works best when he has really smart people working for him who understand that he’s the leader, and you cover the leader,” said one former aide, who insisted on anonymity to avoid damaging relationships with people still at City Hall. “He’s covering for everybody else. He didn’t have to do it that much in the first or second terms. I just find it so extraordinary that there are so many people he’s having to cover up for.”
The former aide cited Stephen Goldsmith, the deputy mayor for operations, who is in charge of snow removal, and John B. Mattingly, the commissioner of children’s services, adding: “How many dead babies do you need before you make a change?”
“You’re always dependent on the people behind you,” the former aide added. “Where are these people?”
They were jumping the Good Ship Tweed like the rats they are.
Now Cathie herself has been pushed and her caretaker Walcott is in charge.
We'll see if Walcott can salvage Bloomberg's ed deform agenda and legacy.
For the sake of us all, I hope to God not.
