The new Mayor of NYC, Bill de Blasio, is being accused of causing grid lock in the Upper East Side by not removing the snow because he wanted to give these folks a little political payback.
I am expecting the FBI will do a full investigation and for de Blasio to turn over his emails.

O just shut up. The guy has been in office barely a few days. No NYC mayor intentionally screws up snow removal, it is political suicide there.

Meh. It's almost always tough getting around/in/out the Upper East Side late on a weekday afternoon. Even on a sultry summer evening.

I can see de Blasio pitch for increasing the taxes on the rich.
Nice neighborhood you got there I wouldn't want to see anything to happen to it.:)

shouldn't the snow be cleared where most of the people live first?
