Howard condemns fake flyer scam that falsely accuses him of being child molester
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that “fake child molesters” are causing a national concern, and added that it’s time to take swift steps in reducing the threat of similar fraud.
De Blasio, who recently announced a crackdown on child molesters that began earlier this month, blasted a fake flyer sent to New Yorkers urging them to “protect your kids and your families” from child sexual abuse.
The poster called on New Yorkers to file reports of possible sexual abuse in schools and on college campuses and to speak up if they think someone has been molested. The report was produced by a fake school called SafeNet that has been spreading the messages.
De Blasio added that he is proud that he was one of the first leaders on the issue, and that the citygospelhitz is on a “path toward eradicating the evil of child abuse.”
In an interview with Time to Talk that aired Saturday on the show Real Time with Bill Maher, the mayor said, “It is outrageous to have these false and misleading reports. It is not news, that’s all I can say.”
De Blasio’s comments came just hours after a child molester named Patrick Hodge was charged with raping a boy while he slept. Hodge was arrested just after his scheduled arraignment on Wednesday.
Maher called on de Blasio to take steps to reduce the risk of similar types of criminal behavior to people who commit assault on children.
“I want to ask you for the courage to bring to light what is occurring all across our country,” Maher said. “I want to ask you to go and say something.”
Maher told de Blasio, “Do you know how many people in your administration are on the front lines of child abuse?”
Maher said, “Is it because people have been sexually abused as children, it becomes that a pattern of behavior emerges?”
“No, no, no, no, it’s no differ바카라사이트ent than your parents,” de Blasio responded.
Maher then asked, “Do you want the first child molester convicted of child rape to go free?”
“Of course not. Of course ngospelhitzot,” de Blasio answered.
Maher then called for de Blasio to “get out there and say this is what is going on in this country. These are people, you don’t see them out there with guns, and they are calling for death.”
