Last week, one of the bigger stories of the week was the raiding of the home of a key fundraiser for New York City Mayor Eric Adams.
The fundraiser, Brianna Suggs, has been tied to an illegal money funnel from Turkey to a company called KSK Construction.
Adams has denied any knowledge of the company but did concede that he had communications with Suggs.
I Don’t Know
According to the report, illegal funds were being wired from Turkey to KSK Construction for the Adams campaign in return for favors.
Adams says he knows nothing about this.
When asked about the company, he stated, “I am not familiar with this organization at all … It's one of the many different groups and organizations that contributes to the campaign.”
Adams later added, “I have communicated with her since this incident took place,” referring to the FBI raid on her home.
The scandal reportedly involved 11 KSK straw donors who dropped about $1,250 into the Adams campaign to conceal the true identity of the donor.
Overall, Suggs raised $18 million for Adams’ campaign, and Adams still openly supports Suggs and has said she did a wonderful job for him.
Adams stated, “Where there's smoke, there's not always fire. She [Suggs] has done an amazing job.”
That might be true in very rare cases, but it surely is rarely the case in the political world.
Smoke usually means you are just closer to exposing mass corruption.
Now, this does not necessarily mean that Adams even knew anything about it because it is likely that even if Suggs did this, Adams knew nothing to very little about where the money was coming from, and I am sure that he did not care as long as his war chest was filled.
If he did know about it, he probably removed himself from direct contact for plausible deniability.
