Did Marshall Sanction Online Hit Jobs?

Screen shot 2013-01-17 at 3.57.12 PMWho knows what happens behind closed doors, but Helen Marshall sure does. For years there’s been an unwritten code in Borough Hall, protect the dear leader at all costs.

“They made us go online and post good stuff about her while we were on the clock,” said a staffer under the condition of anonymity. “We thought our jobs were on the line, so we did it.”

The revelation confirms years of suspicious activity on blog and newspaper commentary where city staffers can post multiple tirades while having their name concealed.

But some of the comments are not in the Beep’s defense; rather taking affirmative, often times hostile positions against her detractors.

What is unclear at this time is the role former Deputy Borough President Barry Grodenchik, now running to replace Marshall, may have played under the allegedly sanctioned hit jobs which often occur on city time (and at the taxpayers expense) giving an unfair home field advantage to Helen Marhsall’s number one guy.

More on this to follow.

Luckily,  a few brave souls that are not afraid to speak out against a good ol’ boy system where loyalty is measured by submission.

Read the scathing NY Times article for the full scoop.
