Harendra Singh, the
owner of the restaurant Water's Edge, said he steered money to de Blasio's
campaign to deal with property matters including better terms of his lease,
the New York Times reports. Singh said that on many occasions they
discussed his restaurant lease and donations to de Blasio in the same
conversation and that they mayor was actively worked on the illegal activity.
"He made many
phone calls," Singh said about de Blasio. "His office was working
very hard, from his deputy mayor to his assistant to his intergovernmental
affairs person. Everyone was working."
Singh's testimony came
during the corruption trial of former Nassau County executive Edward Mangano
and former Town of Oyster Bay supervisor John Venditto. The
restauranteur [sic] has pleaded guilty to bribing both of
them. Mangano and Venditto are on trial for charges that include
extortion, honest services fraud, and conspiracy. They may face
decades in prison.
Do you hear that sucking

Singh was able to skirt
the contribution limit, he said, by having others donate to de Blasio and
receive reimbursement from Singh. De Blasio and Singh discussed
these straw donors twice, the witness testified.
The mayor has said
Singh is just trying to avoid jail time by accusing him.
"It was thoroughly
looked at, and there's a reason there were no charges brought, because there
was nothing there," de Blasio said in January.
True, Singh is a convicted felon, and
there should be some doubt attached to his testimony for that
reason. But in big-city politics, this sort of thing
happens. The problem is, Singh does not seem to be politically
savvy, as he apparently didn't cover his tracks very well. But de
Blasio would almost certainly have taken greater care with whom he was doing
business with. Would an experienced pol have spoken as portrayed by
In a "he said, he said"
controversy involving the mayor and a convicted felon, who do you think comes
out on top?
