POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by Middle Class Strong: PHARMA BRO arrested -- CASINO decision coming -- DE BLASIO's homelessness re-set

12/18/2015 07:30 AM EDT

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

SHKRELI BUSTED - POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg and Josefa Velasquez: The antics that made Martin Shkreli one of the most loathed CEOs in the United States are not what got him into trouble. Before he raised the price of Daraprim, before he made clear his distaste for his pharmaceutical peers, and before he spent millions to purchase the one and only copy of the Wu Tang Clan's latest album, Shkreli allegedly misused millions of dollars from the pharmaceutical company he ran to pay off investors at two hedge funds where he had made a series of bad trades. The alleged "brazen Ponzi-like" scheme was unveiled Thursday during a press conference in Brooklyn at the U.S. attorney's office.

STATEN ISLAND SUBSIDIES STALL - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: Republicans who control the State Senate are putting the brakes on a Staten Island development project that the Cuomo administration proposed to give $16.5 million in subsidies. The subsidies are for the Lighthouse Point project, which includes a hotel, 100 housing units, "an urban beach" and shops arranged in a faux streetscape to create "a charming old-world merchant village" on an abandoned Coast Guard parcel just south of the St. George Ferry terminal, according to its developers. The state proposed to give developers a $1.5 million grant - awarded through a system of regional economic development councils that Gov. Andrew Cuomo created in 2011 - as well as a $15 million forgivable loan that was drawn from a state fund which Republican senators created to support projects on Long Island.

CASINO DECISION COMING MONDAY: The state's Gaming Commission issued an agenda late Thursday for a meeting on Monday during which it is scheduled to take up licenses for the Montreign, Rivers and Lago casinos. Commission officials had said they were planning to act on licenses for the facilities - which were recommended exactly one year ago by a separate siting panel - by year's end, but more recently suggested the final approvals could stretch into the new year. The Oneida Indian Nation has been arguing that the Lago facility, located in Seneca County between Syracuse and Rochester, should be denied a license because it would take business from existing gaming halls.

BRATTON SEEKS NEW LEGISLATION TO ADDRESS STREET HOMELESS PROBLEM -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: New York Police Department commissioner Bill Bratton said Thursday the city plans to propose legislation to address the high number of homeless people on the streets, potentially expanding the reach of statutes that criminalize certain behaviors like panhandling within short distances of ATMs.

-- Bratton spoke with reporters Thursday after Mayor Bill de Blasio gave a speech focused largely on quality-of-life issues and his new plans to combat homelessness before the Association for a Better New York. ... "There are many limitations that we did not have 20 years ago. To that end, we will be proposing after the first of the year a number of legislative initiatives also, that will I think could stand constitutional muster, to allow us to legally address some of the behavior that's inappropriate ... For example, right now, we have an issue that you cannot beg within 10 feet of a bank ATM. ... Now they're outnumbered by these ATMs out in front of every bodega, [so] if you can do it, limit it within 10 feet of a bank ATM, why not be able to limit it within 10 feet of any ATM?"

-- DE BLASIO'S PLAN: The new city program, called "home stat," will proactively canvas every city block from Canal Street to 145th Street in Manhattan, looking for problems. Home stat survey teams will do a daily survey to find homeless "hot spots."

City data on homeless outreach services will be posted publicly on Internet dashboards. The city will also begin a new operation to conduct nighttime censuses of the street homeless population each quarter, amid criticism that the only official census, the "hope count," a count done once a year on the coldest night, is not an accurate enough portrait of the current numbers of street homeless. An estimated 58,000 people are living in city shelters, and de Blasio has estimated between 3000 and 4000 people are currently living in the city's streets. Home stat will also increase the number of homeless outreach staff to 312, from its current level of 175. POLITICO's Laura Nahmias:

-- Bloomberg's Henry Goldman: "The teams will canvass areas of Manhattan from Canal Street to 145th Street in Harlem where the homeless have congregated. Those violating quality-of-life laws by aggressively panhandling, building encampments or publicly urinating will be dealt with by police, while the rest will be handled by outreach workers from the Department of Homeless Services, de Blasio said."

-- AP's Jonathan Lemire: "The new program is part of a sudden full-court press by the de Blasio administration on the homeless. As recently as August, the mayor downplayed the issue, accusing the media of focusing on a few high-profile instances of street homelessness."

-- CBS2: "Homeless People Seen Sleeping, Bathing At LaGuardia Airport": "At 2 a.m. one person was spotted asleep in a wheelchair with plastic bags full of belongings. People were also seen camped out in sleeping bags, and even bathing themselves in public restrooms. They clean themselves and their clothes in full public view. 'I've been staying here for a while,' one 68-year-old homeless man said. 'Most everybody here is homeless.'

-- "The man said he prefers to stay at the airport because he feels safe - pointing out a nearby security camera. 'You're much safer here than in a shelter,' the man said. 'Because with all this stuff here, I can get knifed. I can have bedbugs on me; lice. I'm 68 years old. I don't need the hassle. I sit and watch CNN all day.'"

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We will deploy the trained professionals to handle the situation in real time." -- Mayor Bill de Blasio, via Observer's Will Bredderman:

LIPPMAN'S LEGACY - POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton: When Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman retires this month, after seven years as the head of New York's judicial system, he hopes to leave behind something more than his decisions on the state's highest court. "What I hope I've done is create the profile of what judicial leadership looks like, in this day and age, in the world we live in today, where the problems of the world are not distinct from the judiciary," said Lippman, in an interview at his Midtown office earlier this month. "They come at us everyday. They come to our doorstep."

The state's judicial senility laws require Lippman, who turned 70 earlier this year, to leave the bench by year's end. That mandatory retirement comes two years after Lippman unsuccessfully sought to change the laws that require most state judges to retire at age 70. It was just one of many policies the top judge has pushed to reform since he was appointed chief judge in 2008 by then-governor David Paterson. Lippmann replaced Judith Kaye, another long-serving judge forced to retire because of age, and he set an early precedent when he began pushing for pay raises for his fellow judges.

CONCERT PERMIT SOUGHT BY COMPANY TIED TO ANTI-GAY DONOR -- Gay City News's Duncan Osborne: "A company owned by Philip Anschutz, a leading funder of anti-LGBT organizations and candidates for public office, has applied to produce a major music festival in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens in 2016. Anschutz, a billionaire who lives in Colorado, operates the Anschutz Company, which owns oil and gas companies, a movie theater chain, sports teams, media outlets, and other interests. In November, AEG Live, a unit of the Anschutz Entertainment Group, applied for a permit to produce a music festival in the park.

-- "Julissa Ferreras-Copeland, the City Council member who represents the Queens district that includes the park, told Gay City News that there are another four applicants for major events in the park. In an indication of the ferocity of the competition, an individual who is affiliated with an applicant brought this story to Gay City News on the condition that they remain anonymous."

HILLARYWATCH -- "Clinton campaign raises $8 million at Manhattan fundraiser," by Politico's Gabe Debenedetti: "Convening its top fundraisers for a glitzy dinner and concert at the St. Regis hotel in Manhattan [last night,] Hillary Clinton's campaign brought in roughly $8 million for its joint fundraising group with the [DNC] and state parties ... The event - which featured remarks from both Bill and Hillary Clinton ... John Podesta and .... Dennis Cheng, as well as a concert by rocker Sting - was the campaign's first event for the Hillary Victory Fund. Roughly 160 fundraisers attended the reception, for which they paid a minimum of $33,400. Chairs of the event paid or raised at least $100,000."

MEDIA MORNING -- "Two Economist journalists join New York City bureau": "Gady Epstein is the media editor. Prior to that he took over as Beijing bureau chief of The Economist in 2014.

From 2011 to 2014 she was The Economist's health-care correspondent, covering the health industry, health-care policy in America and global health. From 2007 to 2011 she was The Economist's Midwest Correspondent, based in Chicago."

TRANSITIONS -- Biden aide Carri Twigg will join DKC's New York office as a Senior Vice President after two years at the White House where she served as both Director of Public Engagement for Vice President Biden and Associate Director in the Office of Public Engagement focusing on organized labor.
