Bill De Blasio and Ray Kelly’s Relationship Is Unchanged

New York Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner Ray Kelly speaks at a press conference  about the NYPD's Stop-and-Frisk practice on August 12, 2013 in New York City. A federal court judge ruled that Stop-and-Frisk violates rights guaranteed to people; the Bloomberg administration has vowed to appeal the case.

On Friday, Playboy published an interview with Ray Kelly in which the almost former NYPD commissioner complained that this year's mayoral candidates — the mayor-elect included — "all claimed to be friends of mine up until their [campaigns.]" When asked if De Blasio and his cohort were "just full of shit," Kelly responded, "Absolutely." Apparently, someone let De Blasio know, because today he told reporters, "I had a good conversation with [Kelly yesterday], and I have a clear agenda I want to implement. It was a good conversation. We cleared the air, and we’re moving forward." Not together, though.
