Mayor de Blasio Says He Stuck to Law, But Some Laws Need Changing

There are currently 5 separate investigations going on into New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his fundraising activities.
But the Mayor says he's being targeted for campaign finance tactics that have been used by many mayors and political leaders before him, and his actions have complied with law.
"There’s something going on here that goes beyond anything we’ve seen previously," said the Mayor. "Everything was done very carefully, meticulously with legal guidance all along the way and consistent with what so many other people have done."

"There’s something going on here" says @BilldeBlasio. "I certainly asked ppl to support Dems + everything was done legally + appropriately."

"It’s very interesting that now it becomes a subject of these questions, and I think we have to figure out some of the motivations behind this," he said, declining to point a finger at Governor Cuomo.
Mayor de Blasio also said he would love to see reforms mad
