NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said he is ticked off over the way the investigation into a top de Blasio administration aide has been handled by the Department of Investigation and City Hall.
“What I’m concerned with is we want fairness in the process. We want one standard for the elite in City Hall as well as the rank and file worker. If it was a New York City police officer and accusation upon accusation came out, it would be investigated. If they were found to be wrong, they’d be disciplined,” Lynch said.
Lynch is asking why those working in City Hall are not being held to the same standard.
