NYC City Hall employee fired over comments on NYPD, migrant crisis
City hall staffer Christopher Baugh was fired Wednesday after his explicit comments disparaging the NYPD and the mayor's handling of the migrant crisis went public, officials say.
The mayor's press secretary released a statement saying, "This was a low-level staffer who had no private or special access to the mayor and who wasn't hired by this administration. His comments today disparaging first responders are completely unacceptable, and we've terminated this employee effective immediately. Mayor Adams will always stand up for our first responders and have their backs."
