Ed Skyler is out with his response to a request from Bill Thompson, the comptroller and mayoral candidate, for paperwork on how Michael Bloomberg spent his discretionary funds.
Skyler, a deputy mayor and former spokesman, said the relevant information was already sent to Thompson on May 13 and September 23 last year.
“Those memoranda incorporate all of the work done through the City’s review (which we did not categorize as an audit) including the work of the forensic accountant retained by the Law Department to reconstruct what was funded, and through which elected official, for fiscal years 2003 through 2008,” Skyler wrote.
He goes on to say that Thompson was “personally copied” on the information.
“I would like to think this is a simple misunderstanding rather than an indication that outside circumstances are impairing our ability to work together on this and related issues,” Skyler writes in the letter dated today. “In any case, I am resending the memoranda,” he said.
