How this is not different from what the governor of Virginia did that led him to being convicted in Federal court for taking bribes?
NY Post reports First Lady Chirlane McCray is heading back to Italy — with NYU picking up the $6,500 tab.
The mayor’s office announced Tuesday she will leave Wednesday for a four-night, NYU-sponsored conference in Florence.
The school — which won city approval for a controversial $6 billion expansion in Greenwich Village — is paying McCray’s way. One city official estimated the cost at $6,500.
McCray’s itinerary includes a visit to a local mental-health center with Florence Mayor Dario Nardella.
The event runs from Thursday through Sunday.
“The first lady will travel to Florence to discuss the significant role of art and culture in helping young people develop a healthy self-image,” said mayoral spokesman Peter Kadushin. An NYU spokesman said, “Ms. McCray was invited . . . in recognition of her interest in culture, particularly as it relates to the African-American community.”
