De Blasio Caught Fixing Friend’s Ridiculous Water Bill

Earlier this week, Bill de Blasio's spotty City Council papers revealed that he's soft on double-parking, and now the Post reports that he "made it a 'high priority' to help political pal Dan Cantor of the left-leaning Working Families Party reduce a water bill" in 2006. Cantor was charged an outrageous-sounding $8,989, and de Blasio just wrote "high priority" in a short e-mail to a staffer; he didn't necessarily spend days working on the issue. Even if de Blasio did spend too much time fighting friends' minor tickets and erroneous bills, it probably isn't the scandal Joe Lhota is looking for.
