OMG, this is a scandal if ever there was one!  It sounds like literally tens of minutes could have been spent on this!

Let's impeach Obama!! ,

This is Deblasio's Benghazi.

Of course, the headline is a lie. His scheduler sent an email for him. Wowsers.

I'm sure Obama had him do it to distract attention from Benghazi.

City regs prohibit any of it unless previously approved.

TFA:  But the rules do permit certain exceptions. The COIB's "Acceptable Use Policy" contains guidelines for "limited personal use" of city resources, such as a city employee faxing a letter to his doctor, or using a city phone to schedule a personal appointment.

My mobile cut the article off after the fourth paragraph. I still don't see "previously approved" in the article. And, as noted, COIB's "Acceptable Use Policy" contains guidelines for "limited personal use" of city resources and "The Mayor is Mayor 24 hours a day. In order to ensure that he is able to run the city at all times, and to provide for necessary security, staff is involved in planning his days." Wherever he goes, whatever he does, he's going to have staff and/or security around him, which necessitates coordinating city resources. This is not the same as the dogcatcher having the animal shelter receptionist pick up his dry cleaning.

Incidentally, both kids in the picture in the article look like preeminent douches.

I don't think I want to know what the dogcatcher's dry cleaning looks like.

Wow, that's some really serious "corruption" right there.  If they did deeper they might even find out that he looked at Fark on his office computer.

Leftists. Lol.
 
2014-07-09 09:13:47 AM  
"It's complicated, because the public and private merge [in his schedule]"

I see the problem here. You've got to keep things simple if you expect Republicans to follow the thread.
 
2014-07-09 09:33:50 AM  
Oh my god, the person in charge of the mayors schedule did their job.

WHY ARE WE NOT RIOTING IN THE STREETS?!
 
2014-07-09 10:05:42 AM  
Deblasio is worse than Hitler.

You realize only one of those is his kid, right? It's the black one.

He was semi-famous for a bit during the mayoral campaign because of his Afro.

All the outrage is stuck in traffic in New Jersey.

"Leftist"

lol

I've been waiting a long time for a Fark Independent to define this term beyond, "Since you have to ask... YOU!"
 
2014-07-09 10:41:02 AM  
This level of corruption cannot be tolerated! Now, if he just got us involved in a multi-trillion dollar war based on lies, created an energy policy in cooperation with Big Oil, or gave hundreds of billions of dollars in no-bid contracts to a corporation he once was CEO of, that'd be okay.

I don't think there are very many elected officials in the US who are truly leftist. Democrats would be the conservatives in nearly any other country
 
2014-07-09 10:43:09 AM  
Today's headline brought to you by the "Party of Personal Responsibility" in cooperation with Americans for Butthurt.
 
2014-07-09 10:43:30 AM  
How much did Rudy spend catering to his mistress?
 
2014-07-09 10:43:43 AM  
I'd be outraged, except I expect NYC politicians to be corrupt.
 
2014-07-09 10:44:36 AM  

HotWingConspiracy: How much did Rudy spend catering to his mistress?


Somewhere between $911 and $911,911.
 
2014-07-09 10:45:13 AM  
So what exactly is scandalous a about this?

Anyone to the left of Ted Cruz, and by extension, anyone that is actively trying to destroy 'Murrica.
 
2014-07-09 10:46:40 AM  
That's a pretty weak tea scandal.
 
2014-07-09 10:47:25 AM  
No news flash tag? Using city resources to send Outlook appointments is just the meaty, election year scandal that America can get behind. We also need to see if he stole any pens from the office supply closet.
 
2014-07-09 10:48:08 AM  
So have the city council issue a formal letter of censure, and then get back to work.

SUBPOENA EVERY EMAIL DEBLASIO (if that is his real name - I can't recall seeing a birf sertifiki) EVER SENT, INCLUDING HIS HOTMAIL ACCOUNT AND THE IRS ENTIRE EMAIL LIBRARY GOING BACK TO 1855 AND LOIS LERNER'S USED TAMPONS AND OBAMA'S KINDERGARTEN RECORDS

It's the only way to be sure.
 
2014-07-09 10:49:07 AM  
TIL planning for college = corruption.
 
2014-07-09 10:49:51 AM  
This is as big of a scandal as when Obama mispronounced 'chorizo', or whatever that shiat was.

But if the Mayor had personally attended to this how much outrage would there be that he's focusing on little things like this instead of devoting 24/7 to helping NYC?

Just imagine how much trouble he'll be in if he ever goes golfing.. or.. oh wow.. wants arugala or spicy mustard. The farking commie.
 
2014-07-09 10:50:32 AM  
It is amusing how the right's immediate response to everything is 'See!? They're just as bad as us!'

Hence the expression "to and fro" in TFH? Because otherwise it just sounds silly, with no real excuse for it.
 
2014-07-09 10:50:50 AM  
So we're calling mayors' wives First Ladies now?
 
2014-07-09 10:51:36 AM  
You mean the mayors scheduler scheduled the mayors schedule? I is shocked.

We have been, for decades at least. Governors' wives, too.

PreMortem: Leftists. Lol.


Bears repeating. Also BSABSVR.
 
2014-07-09 10:56:12 AM  
It's almost enough to make Benghazi look like a scandal of merit and substance.

Almost.
 
2014-07-09 10:57:21 AM  
I guess his scheduler isn't supposed to schedule his appointments? Is that what the outrage is, the scheduler did their job?
 
2014-07-09 10:57:36 AM  

jimpoz: So we're calling mayors' wives First Ladies now?


Yes. Probably not in East Armpit, Flyoverstate, but actual cities, yes.

You forgot: "And that makes them WORSE!"
 
2014-07-09 11:02:14 AM  
If the mayor is going too how does it not make sense for his scheduler to schedule something for him?
 
2014-07-09 11:03:12 AM  
Subby sounds like he saw Obama eating crackers recently.
 
2014-07-09 11:03:27 AM  
I have no problem with this.  But the left.  Dear god if a republican did this.  They'd crucify him.  There is a huge double standard.
