What happened to the $850m given to Bill de Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray? What was the money meant for?

Chirlane McCray, the wife of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, was awarded $900 million to launch a mental health project aimed at assisting the city’s homeless.

According to the New York Post, no one seems to know what that money was utilised for after four years.

During a meeting, the City Council learned this astounding amount of potential waste. While this may appear to be a good idea to spend a lot of money on a mental health effort, it appears that no one has seen any actual results.

The City Council was shocked when they learned that McCray and Team Thrive have spent about $900 million since the program’s inception, and no one appears to know why.

That is, no one appears to have kept receipts; the subways and street corners are still crawling with lunatics, and no one in control knows what will happen next.

The NY Post reports that among multiple failed programs and “bad accounting”, the figure is actually not $850 million but rather $1.8 billion.

As of 2022, the amount has not been accounted for.
