Ray Kelly Calls Out Politicians

NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly bared all in a Playboy interview about Mike Bloomberg’s legacy, the controversy of stop-and-frisk, and how all of New York’s mayoral candidates are, in Playboy writer Glenn Plaskin's words, "full of shit." “It just goes to show you what some politicians will do,” Kelly said, charging that Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio and those that ran against him only attacked the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk policy to win votes. “They’ll say or do anything to get elected. I know all these people. They all claimed to be friends of mine until their mayoral campaigns.” As for outgoing Mayor Bloomberg, Kelly called him “a very intelligent person, and funny.”
