Mayor de Blasio has come under a great deal of fire for the nonprofit Campaign for One New York, which was created by his advisers to further his political plans; the nonprofit is closing.

"A nonprofit group created by close advisers to Mayor Bill de Blasio to push his political agenda, using unlimited contributions from donors, has stopped raising and spending money and is in the process of shutting down.

"The group, known as the Campaign for One New York, had raised the ire of government watchdog organizations that said it created a “shadow government” of lobbyists and businesses with interests before City Hall, who gained access and influence through donations outside the purview of New York City’s strict campaign finance laws. Last month, one such organization, Common Cause New York, filed a formal complaint with the city requesting an investigation."--J. David Goodman, The New York Times
