Dan Doctoroff “would do anything” for Mike Bloomberg, including running his “shitty little company.”
That’s what Doctoroff, the former deputy mayor for economic development and rebuilding, said to the approximately 500 people at his going-away party last night at the New York Public Library, according to two attendees I spoke to, and another who left early but claims to have heard about the joke from other guests.
The event was closed to the press, but was something of a hot ticket for political insiders.
Doctoroff is taking over as president of Bloomberg LP. The tone of the comment, in case it’s not clear, was intended to be humorous.
