Bill de Blasio’s Wife Can Not Explain Where The $850 Million Went

$850 million in American federal tax dollars is “missing.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, can’t seem to account for the mass sum of money, which was intended to go toward the city’s Thrive program, designed to aid those with mental health issues. McCray oversees the program.

David Harris Jr.’s website reports that this “money cannot be accounted for and Thrive keeps few records on their accomplishments or their spending, making it impossible to locate the money. 850 Million dollars is nothing to sneeze at. No one is saying she took any money, but it does show she failed to provide oversight on the program. To make matters worse, they don’t even know if the program was successful or not.”

The Daily Mail reports:

Where has $850m gone? Bill de Blasio’s wife can’t account for staggering amount of taxpayer money that the NY Mayor gave her for mental health project

Bill de Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray cannot explain where $850 million given to the mental health program she champions has gone, according to reports.

In the three years it has been running, organizers at ThriveNYC have largely failed to keep records of the initiative’s achievements – and data that has been collected shows it lagging well behind targets.

The program was approved for a larger budge continuing forward, with it projected to spend $1 billion within the next five years.

We’re left with the question as to how someone is able to lose nearly a billion dollars.
