New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s Wife’s Chief of Staff Lives with a Killer

First de Blasio allows his wife and son to attend the NYPD CompStat meetings.  Then he lets her chief of staff, Rachel Noerdlinger, get sensitive documents while she is living with her felon boyfriend Hassaun McFarlan.

McFarlan’s rap sheet is endless, including homicide, cocaine selling and nearly running a cop off the road. What has gone wrong with this country that de Blasio sticks up for Noerdlinger when she should be consorting with lawyers and politicians, not killers?

Wouldn’t you consider Noerdlinger’s sleeping with McFarlan a form of collusion? Do progressives like de Blasio consider everything acceptable?

Should a repetitive felon like McFarlan given a fourth chance because naïfs like de Blasio don’t realize that a criminal is a criminal is a criminal.  Has he never heard of perpetual recidivism?  Guys like McFarlan don’t grow up.  They kill people.

When murderers get out of jail why don’t we create a dating service to set them up with politicians to discuss with each other police matters over cocktails? It’s the failure of liberals to see black and white that lets them push civilization into a gray hole of indistinct violence.
