So funny, when challenged about how her boss's housing plan would screw 
poor New Yorkers, De Blasio's Deputy Mayor for Housing and Development 
Alicia Glen (former head of Goldman Sach's Urban Investment Group) 
snarled, "We have certain tools in our municipal tool box. We can't 
change the history of capitalism and we're not Trotsky. You try to 
redistribute some of that growth to the people who need it."

This is from a Vice interview with Glen referenced in "Capital City". 
Read the whole interview and you'll understand what a fraud De Blasio 
was and why nobody paid attention to his short-lived campaign for President.
