Federal Probe Investigates NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s fundraising activities are the focus of a new federal investigation, CBS News reports. The FBI corruption probe began with an investigation of high-ranking New York City Police Department officers, and is now focusing on de Blasio’s ties with campaign contributers.

Two of the mayor’s key donors are already under investigation for allegedly giving police expensive gifts and vacations in exchange for security. These donors’ ties with de Blasio are now under scrutiny, as federal investigators work to determine whether they made contributions in exchange for favors from the administration.
