A Republican operative was indicted Monday on charges he exploited his political reputation to swindle $1.1 million from Mayor Michael Bloomberg, claiming he would use funds to help guard against election fraud but instead buying a house, prosecutors said.
John Haggerty duped Bloomberg and his political advisers into giving the money to the state Independence Party to help with ballot security during the mayor’s campaign for a third term, District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said. Haggerty then laundered the money and used it for personal expenses in the months after the election, Vance said.
Sooooo what!! the Mayor is a damn billionaire, he won’t miss a measley 1 mill…I’m sure he spends waayyyy more than that in a year…shit this fucker bought himself another term as Mayor of NYC so why the fuck should we care.. but hey thats just my opinion.
