You would expect that this might occur in other countries around the world but not in America and certainly not in New York!
A philandering and impeached former President of the United States selected to swear-in the newly elected socialist Mayor of New York City!
But on January 1, 2014, Bill Clinton will indeed perform this function having had the honor bestowed on him by soon-to-be Mayor Bill de Blasio!
As the final irony in this story de Blasio ran the 2000 US Senate campaign of former Secretary of State and probable 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who has scandals of her own most notably her failure to act as four Americans were slaughtered in Benghazi!
Bill Clinton-Bill de Blasio-Hillary Clinton! New York City deserves better but once again elections in which the voters who turn-out are low information or simply want free stuff have consequences.
'Former President Bill Clinton will swear in Bill de Blasio as New York City’s 109th mayor at a Jan. 1 ceremony on the steps of City Hall in Lower Manhattan.
Clinton will attend the event with his wife, Hillary Clinton, the former U.S. secretary of state, for whom de Blasio worked as manager of her successful 2000 campaign for U.S. senator from New York.
De Blasio, 52, who won a 49-percentage-point election victory in November after campaigning against income inequality, becomes the first Democrat to control City Hall in 20 years. He worked in President Clinton’s administration as a regional director at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The occasion will also include the swearing-in of Scott Stringer, 53, as city comptroller and Letitia James, 51, as citywide public advocate. It will feature music and be attended by at least 1,000 members of the public admitted by lottery.
Clinton will use a bible owned by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to swear in the new mayor of the largest U.S. city. The former president will be introduced by Lissette Ortiz, a senior at Medgar Evers College and immigrant from the Dominican Republic who moved to the U.S. at 15, according to an e-mail from the de Blasio transition office.'
