Saying taxpayers shouldn’t be left footing the bill for $13.6 million in personal legal feesto defend against City Hall corruption investigations, a new lawsuit seeks to force Mayor de Blasio and several top aides to pay their own way, The Post has learned.
The suit, electronically filed on Sunday, alleges that de Blasio and his “underlings” engaged in “criminal and/or unethical behavior…outside the scope of public employment and thus should not be covered by the city of New York.”
In addition to forcing de Blasio and the others to pay back the cash drained from city coffers, the Manhattan Supreme Court filing seeks unspecified punitive and “consequential” damages, plus the costs of litigating the case.
