POLITICO New York Playbook: Bracing for BREXIT -- SCOTUS fallout in NY -- LEWANDOWSKI's new gig

06/24/2016 07:37 AM EDT

By Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, and Mike Allen in D.C., with Daniel Lippman

WALL STREET BRACES FOR BREXIT -- POLITICO's Joseph J. Schatz and Ben White: "British voters didn't just shock the world and the financial markets by voting to leave the European Union hours ago: They also ignored President Barack Obama, handed Hillary Clinton a potential economic burden and injected new energy into the populist currents roiling politics on both sides of the Atlantic.

"The surprise 52 percent - 48 percent result in favor of leaving the European Union - which British networks projected just before 5 a.m. local time - came after a tense night of vote-counting throughout the United Kingdom. British Prime Minister David Cameron later announced he's resigning, citing a need for "fresh leadership." The British pound rose and fall rapidly as the anti-EU "Leave" movement piled up big margins in the northeast, swamping wins by the "Remain" camp in London, Birmingham and Scotland.

"In addition to driving down the pound by nearly 10 percent, the vote slammed global markets , with shares in Asia down well over 3 percent in early trading. Futures markets also indicated a big swoon coming on Wall Street early Friday morning with shares expected to drop more than 3 percent. That would amount to a Dow drop of close to 600 points, a plunge frighteningly reminiscent of the 2008 financial crisis."

SOMETHING STINKS WITH MINT GARBAGE BAG DONOR -- Times' Jim Dwyer: "Joseph Dussich, the owner of a company in Queens that makes anti-rat garbage bags [made] two donations of $50,000 apiece to a political advocacy group run by allies of Mayor Bill de Blasio [last year]. Ten days later, records show, Mr. de Blasio met with Mr. Dussich in City Hall to thank him for the contributions.

"The meeting was arranged by one of the mayor's chief fund-raisers , Ross Offinger, according to two people familiar with the account that Mr. Dussich has given to federal authorities investigating City Hall fund-raising. Mr. Dussich, who brought one of his sons to the meeting, chatted briefly with Mr. de Blasio, a Democrat, about their shared Italian heritage. As the visit with Mr. de Blasio was breaking up, Mr. Dussich was met at the mayor's office by a City Hall aide, Hatch, who then connected Mr. Dussich to purchasing officials at the parks department.

"Within a month, Mr. Dussich's company, JAD Corporation of America, was given a $15,000 contract ... In the account given by Mr. Dussich, there was no talk of the garbage bags with Mr. de Blasio during the brief meeting. ... The mayor's office would not discuss the donations, the meeting, the calls or the purchase of the Mint-X bags. ... Whether legal or not, the garbage bag episode illustrates the collapse of careful defenses built up in the city over the last three decades against 'pay to play' practices in which people gave campaign contributions to gain access to or favors from powerful officials."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "It's night and day in terms of how we in the administration and City Hall dealt with, versus how this handful of commanders dealt with it." -- Mayor Bill de Blasio, on his working relationship with two campaign donors who are at the center of widespread federal corruption probe that so far has led to the arrest of four NYPD officials, via POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias:

BONUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: "The minute you legislate, there is a slippery slope." -- Mayor Bill de Blasio, on his continued opposition to criminally banning police chokeholds, via POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah:

2017 CHATTER OF THE DAY: "[De Blasio] is vulnerable to being in a run-off if there is two or more opponents, in short, a three or a four-way race." -- Bruce Gyory, political strategist, via NY1's "Inside City Hall"

AMID QUESTIONS, MORE MONEY FOR SUNY POLY - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: State officials have released $4 million to start planning a 3D printing factory in Plattsburgh, the latest endeavor of the SUNY Polytechnic Institute, a high-tech school whose contracting practices are the subject of state and federal probes. Thursday's meeting of the Empire State Development corporation board offered some of the most concrete details about the factory, which will be leased to Norsk Titanium, a Norwegian company also known as NTi. The company uses superheated argon plasma and titanium wire to 3D-print aircraft parts ; ESD officials said the Plattsburgh factory will be "the world's first industrial scale 3D printing manufacturing center." The state is kicking in $125 million for the facility, which will cover 170,000 square feet and eventually employ 383 people, according to ESD documents. Money was included in this year's state budget, but there has still been no formal announcement or groundbreaking.

The board presentation drew several questions from Joyce Miller, one of the authority's directors, about what say ESD would have over Fort Schuyler's contracting processes. "I'm glad to hear that this facility is locating there. However, I have some questions about the process for disbursing the grant money, especially given the fact that the agency involved in the dispersion, the administration of the grant, is Fort Schuyler - which we know is currently the subject of a number of investigations because of its bidding processes, et cetera, and selection of contracts," Miller said. "What kind of oversight do we exercise ... are there any formal guidelines for the bidding process?"

SCOTUS FALLOUT -- De Blasio rallies in City Hall -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: More than 220,000 immigrant New Yorkers will remain unable to benefit from President Obama's immigration executive order, which would have protected millions of parents of U.S. citizens across the country from deportation and granted them work permits under a program known as as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA. The Supreme Court announced Thursday it deadlocked on a case challenging Obama's order. ... City officials said Thursday the city will continue to administer immigrant-specific services without any change, but that there will be an increased focus on making sure people are getting the right information and don't fall victim to fraud. "We want them to understand what is going on, because we expect that there will be bad actors out there who will put out bad information, so we really need to be working together to help them understand what is happening," said Betsey Plum, director of Special Projects NY Immigration Coalition. ... Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, who is in Florida for a panel on the Puerto Rican financial crisis, called on President Obama to halt the deportation raids he has ordered in recent months.

-- Immigration ruling will leave hundreds of thousands in N.Y. uninsured -- POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg: The ruling will have a profound local health impact, blocking hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers from a chance at health insurance. New York is one of the few states that provides health insurance to non-citizens, or people residing under the color of law (PRUCOL). The state Court of Appeals in 2001 ruled that denying Medicaid to any legal resident violated the equal protection clauses of the New York and U.S. constitutions. As a result, immigrants in New York who are not citizens but are living in the state lawfully are entitled to Medicaid. Because the federal government does not recognize that right, the state, which usually receives a 50 percent match for Medicaid expenses, pays the full cost for insuring these immigrants. Currently, there are an estimated 53,000 immigrants with PRUCOL status enrolled in the state's Medicaid program, according to the Community Service Society. Many were granted their status in 2012 when Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program, granting legal status to children brought here illegally by their parents.

Had the president's 2014 executive order gone into effect, tens of thousands of low-income immigrants without alternative options would have been eligible for Medicaid. That could have cost the state more than $1 billion in new Medicaid spending.


-- LEWY LEWY - Corey Lewandowski, who landed a salaried gig as a CNN contributor after being fired from his position as Donald Trump's campaign manager earlier this week, assured viewers he will "tell it like it is" despite having signed a nondisclosure agreement that would appear to bar him from saying anything negative about Trump and/or his campaign.

In his first interview as a CNN employee last night , Lewandowski confirmed to 7 p.m. anchor Erin Burnett that he had signed an NDA. "I don't plan on breaking that," he said. "I'm not here to release private information of family members or discussions that took place behind the scenes that the public really has no reason to be aware of."

Pressed specifically on the agreement's non-disparagement clause, Lewandowski said, "I'm a guy who calls balls and strikes. I'm gonna tell it like it is. ... There's nothing that's gonna stop me from telling the truth." Even when it's saying something bad about Donald Trump? "I'm gonna say it like it is." Full segment:

-- SPECULATION STATION - Wouldn't it kind of make sense if America's largest newspaper chain were in the market to go after Newsday? It's no secret Gannett has been on a spending spree, including its audacious play recently for the company formerly known as Tribune Publishing. Newsday has a brand new owner, Netherlands-based Altice, which on Tuesday completed its $17.7 billion acquisition of the paper's longtime parent company, the Dolan family's Cablevision.

It was logical for Long Island power brokers like the Dolans to own their region's newspaper of record. It maybe makes less sense for a Dutch multinational telecoms company to want to own it? Gannett meanwhile already has a presence in Westchester and New Jersey, where the publisher also is reportedly in talks to buy North Jersey daily The Record ( If Gannett snatched up The Record and Newsday, it would shore up the company's metro-area portfolio quite nicely. And let's just take this wild hypothesis one step further with the following two words: "Daily" and "News."

BOXING REGULATOR SEES RETALIATION FROM CUOMO - New York Times' Dan Barry: "The New York State Athletic Commission has long been a curio of the state's bureaucracy, an odd little agency charged with the considerable responsibility of ensuring the integrity of professional boxing and the safety of fighters who risk harm for entertainment. Mismanagement, patronage and piecemeal corruption pepper its history. Two years ago, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo appointed David Berlin, a lawyer with an expertise in boxing, to be the athletic commission's executive director. Mr. Berlin's appointment and the creation of the new supervisory position were seen by many as moves to reform the commission - to make it more professional and accountable. The match did not take: Last month, the Cuomo administration abruptly replaced Mr. Berlin, who, his lawyer says, was removed in retaliation for diligently reporting wrongdoing within the commission."

DE BLASIO HAS NO REGRETS IN PICKING CUOMO FIGHT - POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: Nearly a year after he held an extraordinary press conference in City Hall to denounce his one-time boss Cuomo as "vindictive," Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday he had no regrets about his public criticisms of the state's top Democrat. Asked whether "it was a mistake" to criticize Cuomo, who has what could be described as an elephant's long memory for slights, de Blasio said he had no regrets. "The first answer is no," the mayor said. "I said the truth. I stand by it."

COMING ONLINE -- Agency acts on eve of Stringer announcement -- POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg: The city health department on Thursday posted lead water test results for all day care programs under its jurisdiction. The health department's move follows concerns that several day care centers across the city were not keeping documentation to prove their water was tested, and an expected city comptroller's report that found three dozen day care centers lacked the proper paperwork. While that did not indicate a lead problem, it meant there was no way to know for certain whether the water was safe.

#NY13 -- DAILY NEWS BACKS ESPAILLAT TO REPLACE RANGEL -- Cites 421a, Israel -- "In Albany, Espaillat has shown more energy than many on issues such as rights for immigrants and farm workers. He has also stood up for ethnic Haitians marooned without citizenship in his native Dominican Republic and championed a creative proposal to enable tenants to buy their own buildings using federal loans. Espaillat's main rival, Keith Wright, has done some solid work in the Assembly, notably winning full labor rights for domestic workers. However, as chair of the housing committee, Wright wrapped up the legislative session by unwisely obstructing the 421-a real estate tax break that is crucial to building affordable housing. Another distinction: Wright is backed by J Street PAC, which regularly uses language of moral equivalence as Israel defends itself from barrages of terror emanating from the Palestinian territories. Espaillat visited Israel to strengthen ties."

REAL ESTATE -- CHECK-IN-"City Hall wins lawsuit against REBNY over hotel conversion bill," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "The de Blasio administration has won a legal case against the Real Estate Board of New York over a bill that curtails the conversion of hotels into condominiums. State Supreme Court Justice Margaret Chan ruled Thursday that REBNY does not have legal standing to overturn the 2015 law because its argument - that the measure hurts the real estate industry by costing earning possibilities - is based on speculation, not hard evidence. Unlike a different case in Brookhaven, in which a developer argued a rezoning prevented it from building a planned supermarket, REBNY's concerns about financial damage were not proven, Chan said. 'Here, there is only speculation,' she wrote."

WTC MILESTONE-"3 World Trade Center Marks Milestone With Topping Out Ceremony," by CBS New York's Haskell: "Developer Larry Silverstein joined hundreds of construction workers, public officials, business leaders and community members for the ceremony on top of the 1,079-foot tall tower. About 1,000 workers signed a massive construction bucket that was lifted to the brim, along with a big American flag. Several workers at the ceremony still remembered the 16-acre pit of fiery debris they helped to clean up after the 9/11 terror attacks. ... The 80-story building is slated to open in 2018. The building at 3 World Trade is one of three new skyscrapers that replace the twin towers destroyed almost 15 years ago. The others are the 72-story 4 World Trade Center and the main edifice of the rebuilt site, the 104-floor One World Trade Center that dominates the post 9/11 Manhattan skyline and is the city's tallest building."

TRUMP CHANGE-"Trump Tower fined over missing bench after the presumptive GOP nominee skips hearing," by Crain's Aaron Elstein: "In 1979, a young real estate developer named Donald Trump made what he would surely call a 'great deal.' In return for including room where people could shop or rest their feet, the city allowed him to increase the size of Trump Tower by about 20 floors. Today, the tower's public space consists of retailers like Trump Grill and Trump Cafe, a garden with dead trees visited by almost no one, and an empty spot near the lobby elevators where a 22-foot-long stone bench once stood. On Thursday, the city fined the tower $10,000 for failing to return the bench after neither Trump nor his representatives showed up at an administrative hearing to discuss the matter. Earlier this year, Trump Tower was fined $4,000 for replacing the bench with kiosks that sold 'Make America Great Again' caps and other presidential campaign merchandise. Trump has 45 days to appeal the $10,000 default penalty."

HOUSING FIGHT-"Housing activists ramp up campaign against affordable housing developers," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "An activist group that has long criticized Mayor Bill de Blasio's housing plan is targeting an affordable housing association with a rollout of attacks and a call on all elected officials not to accept campaign contributions from the association. New York Communities for Change has launched a push to publicly shame the New York State Association for Affordable Housing (NYSAFAH), arguing the trade organization is responsible for gentrification and the city should rely on non-profit developers as it increases the stock of below-market-rate housing. NYSAFAH counts both for-profit and non-profit developers of below-market-rate housing among its membership, according to its website.

"The new campaign, known as 'The Real Gentrifiers of NYC,' recently protested outside the Greenwich, Conn. home of a leading for-profit developer of low- and middle-income housing in the city-Ron Moelis of L+M Development Partners. 'NYSAFAH developers often act like the Koch brothers and try to buy elections as a way to rig housing and development policy in their favor. We plan to turn the 2017 election cycle into a major referendum on NYSAFAH developers and the most extreme consequences of their gentrification playbook in our city,' Renata Pumarol, who works for New York Communities for Change, said in a prepared statement. ... 'This is yet another misleading political attack orchestrated by construction unions seeking to increase their market share,' a spokesman for NYSAFAH said."

ON THE MOVE: Jim Tallon, the president of the United Hospital Fund, will step down from the position in the second half of 2017. Samantha Levine is joining SKDKnickerbocker's New York City office as a Senior Vice President.

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal:

The Nets moved up and took local product Isaiah Whitehead with the 42nd pick in the NBA draft, after grabbing Michigan guard Caris Levert at 20. The pair are athletic, multidimensional talents who probably can't help right away.

Braves 4, Mets 3: Adonis Garcia homered against Addison Reed in the eighth inning while the Mets kept having trouble solving the eminently solvable Atlanta Braves.

The day ahead: the Yankees host Minnesota. The Mets are in Atlanta.
