The Mayor’s office contends that they get behind everyone’s projects just as much:
City Hall says it is the job of the community and immigrant affairs commissioners to assist community groups, including drafting letters for them. Officials noted Bloomberg has always been in favor of building the mosque near Ground Zero.
“The Community Affairs Unit exists to help groups navigate city government, and from helping prepare for a Papal visit to expediting approval of a Sukkah in a midtown Manhattan park, this kind of assistance is typical of its regular work,” said Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser.
It seems that these emails show more than the usual amount of support coming from the mayor’s office. In fact they reveal another example of Mayor Bloomberg’s contempt for the vast majority of people of his own city, indeed the people of the United States. While people worked so hard to protect what they see as hallowed grounds, the Mayor’s office was sneaking behind their backs to fight against them.
