POLITICO New York Playbook: DELEGATION weighs local impact -- DE BLASIO digital officer departs -- CHRIS CUOMO vs. Trump chairman

07/21/2016 07:13 AM EDT

By Azi Paybarah in Cleveland and Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, with Daniel Lippman and Addy Baird

CLEVELAND CHAOS - POLITICO's Goldmacher, Glueck and Nussbaum: "Ted Cruz refused to endorse Donald Trump in daring and dramatic fashion on Wednesday, telling Republicans to "vote your conscience" in a 20-minute snub that played out in slow motion on national television. ... Cruz's rejection exposed the raw rifts still festering inside the Republican Party, overshadowed the planned coming-out speech for Trump's vice-presidential pick, Mike Pence, and all but guaranteed that Republicans would depart Cleveland a party divided."

-- But NY Republicans remain optimistic about Trump: State party leaders in Cleveland say they believe the outspoken political outsider will boost their effort to keep control of the upper chamber. "Well, I think he's going to drive up turnout. I think that's the most important part," Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan said.

-- Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Hillary delegate, declined to weigh in on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's speech at the Republican National Convention Tuesday.

-- Attorney General Eric Schneiderman knocked Trump's "endorsement of anti-semitic imagery."

-- "Carl Paladino and Michael Caputo are tied by history, friendship and politics. When Paladino ran for New York State governor in 2010, Caputo was his campaign manager and PR man. When Paladino signed on to help organize statewide support for Trump's presidential campaign, he asked Caputo to help. Now both men are working the Republican National Convention this week. But they bring different emotional energy to the job."

-- "Membership has its privileges. And, for Republican nominee Trump's home state of New York, delegates are resting their heads in some of the most luxurious beds in Cleveland."

SUMMER'S POLAR VORTEX? -- by New York Magazine's Jen Kirby and New York Metro Weather's John Homenuk: "Summer is here, and with it comes the latest apocalyptic-sounding weather phenomenon. A 'heat dome' is building in the central United States right now, and it's going to be so big and intense that a huge swath of the country could be sweating from 100-degree temperatures or higher."

NO BUFFALO BILLION UPDATE - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration on Wednesday failed to give a public progress report on the factory it is building for SolarCity as part of the Buffalo Billion initiative, breaking an earlier commitment that was made in exchange for legislative approval of construction funds. There was an unexpected dose of tension in May, when the Empire State Development corporation advanced $485.5 million in funding for the project at the RiverBend site in South Buffalo. Federal prosecutors working for U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara already were investigating the project, including how SUNY Polytechnic Institute and its affiliate, the Fort Schuyler Management Corporation, let contracts on the $900 million facility. The first to come at Wednesday's PACB meeting. But after gaining approval for $22.1 million in subsidies for a vent company, an organic peanut butter factory and several other things, Bradley Austin, a soft-spoken ESD lawyer, turned to leave. ... "There were clear expectations attached to this project and today Fort Schuyler, ESDC and DOB failed to meet their obligation," Assembly Republican leader Brian Kolb, whose conference cannot vote at the PACB, stated. "In May, before approving $485 million of public money, the PACB asked these agencies for monthly updates. Today we received nothing but a blank stare.

ANOTHER DE BLASIO DEPARTURE -- Singleton, chief digital officer, to leave -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: Jessica Singleton, Mayor Bill de Blasio's chief digital officer, is leaving his administration to attend business school, she announced Wednesday in a Medium post, making her the most recent in a string of departures from the mayor's office. Singleton was hired as de Blasio's digital director in January 2014, and became the chief digital officer last year. ... Singleton's plans to exit have been in the works for months (applying and being accepted to Harvard Business School is not an impulse decision), but her leaving follows the high-profile departures of five other administration staffers earlier this summer.

GLIMPSE OF EVIDENCE AT NYPD CORRUPTION PROBE -- NYT's Benjamin Weiser: "When the authorities executed a search warrant last month at the home of Jeremiah Reichberg, a Brooklyn businessman arrested in a federal corruption investigation, they noticed one of Mr. Reichberg's family members trying to leave the house carrying various items, a prosecutor told a federal judge on Tuesday. Among the items, said the prosecutor, Martin S. Bell, were electronic devices, thumb drives, smartphones, data-containing disks and business cards, which related to people currently and formerly at the New York Police Department and elected officials in local politics. Mr. Bell, speaking at a hearing in Federal District Court in Manhattan, did not elaborate on the significance of the business cards and other materials seized in the search. The comment came as he described the case against Mr. Reichberg and his co-defendants ... But his statements offered a glimpse at some of the evidence that is under review in the case..."

NOT SO FAST -- Bratton, on police reform deal with the City Council -- POLITICO New York's Conor Skelding: Police commissioner Bill Bratton said it would take "upwards of almost a year" for the police department to put into action reforms promised as part of a deal with the mayor and City Council speaker that circumvented a package of police reform bills supported by a majority of the Council. "The arrangement with the City Council is that, rather than creating laws that are an unnecessary intrusion into my administrative powers, we are creating policies that will meet a lot of their concerns ... So it will take a period of time to write those policies, to provide the training. So the timing is over a period of time, upwards of almost a year before many of those issues are put into place."

FLASHBACK, July 13: "I believe we are getting reforms done, there are changes administratively, and in procedures and in operations that the NYPD will be implementing immediately," Mark-Viverito said. "There is no waiting game - this is within the next five months." POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino:


-- NEW MURDOCH ERA : "[T]he ouster of Ailes ... is not just an abrupt end to Ailes' career at 21st Century Fox, but ... a Murdoch coda," writes Michael Wolff. "For his sons, James and Lachlan, who became the co-operators of the $53 billion company a year ago ... getting rid of Ailes is their first transformative management step, one quite unimaginable under their father or under their predecessor, Chase Carey. ..[T]he company they want to lead will be a different one, with different values - in James' words, a different 'profile' --- than their father's company."

-- MUST WATCH : CNN's Chris Cuomo calling out Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort about Melania Trump's plagiarized convention speech and the campaign's "pattern of denying the obvious," and then Manafort obfuscating like the best of 'em, via Yahoo's Dylan Stableford: "I can't move on, because you keep lying about it. So I can't move on from it. Because I have to talk about what is true."

-- 'PRESS PASS, SCHPRESS PASS' : Hadas Gold reports from Cleveland: "Ken Kurson, editor of the New York Observer, is spending his second night in a row sitting in the Trump family box at the Republican National Convention. A number of people noted Kurson's seating arrangements on Twitter. ... The Observer is owned by Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and has come under fire for its treatment of Trump, from both outside observers and from some staff at the paper." Times political reporter (and Kaplan-era Observer alum) Jason Horowitz: "Press pass, Schpress pass!"

-- REVOLVING DOOR: Longtime New York Post staffer and current managing editor Lauren Ramsby is leaving the tabloid on August 4. "Lauren has been instrumental in a lot of the changes in the past decade, including redesigning the Sunday paper as editor of that edition, and then being a big part of our web site changes as managing editor," editor in chief Stephen Lynch told the newsroom in a memo yesterday. "Since she started in 2002, Lauren also has mentored countless reporters and editors (including me, for which I'm grateful). All while running marathons. She will be missed." Morning Media is told that Ramsby's leaving to pursue a new opportunity that she isn't ready to announce yet.

'FOOD DESERT' -- DNA Info's Dartunorro Clark: "The only independent supermarket left in East Harlem could be closing. City Fresh Market, which has been at 125 E. 116 St. for more than a decade, could close as soon as Aug. 1 as the property owner BLDG Management plans to develop into a residential building with a ground floor store it wants to lease to Walgreens, officials said. 'East Harlem has long been considered a food desert,' City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said in a letter to Walgreens CEO. 'Taking away the only supermarket that serves the needs of this community is heinous, immoral and economically unsound.'

LUNCH READ OF THE DAY: We Love 'Cats.' We Hate 'Cats.' from NYT's Lisa Birnbach: "When I learned that "Cats" was being revived on Broadway, one question quickly came to mind: Haven't we had a challenging enough summer? Who wants 'Cats' again? I posed the question to people of all stripes and have come to realize that the question is itself a theatrical acid test: It gives way to passionate replies on both sides. No one seems indifferent."


NO DEAL-"As property auction ends, city and land owner at impasse over Bushwick Inlet Park plan," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "As an auction closed Wednesday for a private Brooklyn waterfront parcel the de Blasio administration is hoping to acquire for a park, the mayor's team and the property owner remained at an impasse. Two city officials wrote separate letters to the local city councilman, Steve Levin, indicating the limited uses for the land: It is zoned for manufacturing construction with a maximum size of about 570,000 square feet. ... The letters were intended to send a message to the owner, Norman Brodsky, that if he does not accept the city's offer of $100 million for the 11-acre parcel that is home to a CitiStorage site, he will have a hard time selling the land for a higher price. The city wants the plot so it can complete its assemblage of the Bushwick Inlet Park."

FOREIGN EXCHANGE-"U.S. Links Malaysian Prime Minister to Millions Stolen From Development Fund," by Wall Street Journal's Bradley Hope and Tom Wright: "U.S. prosecutors have linked the prime minister of Malaysia, a key American ally in Asia, to hundreds of millions of dollars allegedly siphoned from one of the country's economic development funds, according to a civil lawsuit seeking the seizure of more than $1 billion of assets from other people connected to him. The assets, purchased by the stepson of Prime Minister Najib Razak and other persons connected to the fund, include high-end real estate and hotel properties in New York City, Los Angeles and London, artwork by Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, and a $35 million jet. They also include rights to the 2013 film 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' the civil-forfeiture complaints say."

PORT ATTACK- "N.Y. congressman calls Port Authority's bus terminal approach 'arrogant'," by POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: "U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler thinks the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is 'arrogant' because its still-formative plan for a new bus terminal is being 'imposed' on Manhattan's West Side. 'I will remind you and them, community groups on the West Side defeated Mayor Bloomberg's stadium, defeated Westway,' the New York Democrat said during a phone interview Wednesday. 'There is more expertise on how to stop bad projects here than anyplace else. So they had better pay attention.'"

FALLOUT FROM SCUTTLED POLICE BILLS -- WSJ's Mara Gay and Josh Dawsey: "In an interview, Ms. Mark-Viverito disputed the notion that she had deferred to the mayor, NYPD Commissioner William Bratton or anyone else on policy matters. She said she 'moved the needle way more than any other speaker in challenging the NYPD.' 'Six months ago the NYPD commissioner was describing these bills as anti-cop,' Ms. Mark-Viverito said. 'To have them arrive at a moment where they are now accepting some of the elements of these bills they were opposed to, I see that as a big victory.' A spokesman for Mr. de Blasio declined to comment."

MM-V's media criticism: "I still get a little bit appalled at times at the perspective of the press, that there's this assumption that when a tough decision has to be made, somehow I made a decision, I'm in the pocket of the mayor, right? ... I couldn't possibly have arrived at that decision on my own, right? ... A controversial, difficult decision - somehow I had to be forced into that because I could not have made that decision on my own. That's sexist...And when I say it's sexist, what do I get back? 'Oh you're always throwing the sex card around.'" Gotham Gazette's Libby Wetzler:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: State Sen. Phil Boyle of Long Island ... Jen Bluestein, who helped run Fernando Ferrer's 2005 mayoral campaign after David Axelrod and Chad Clanton departed ... Kristen Stavisky, chairwoman at the Rockland County Democratic Committee ... Lori Knipel, Democratic State Committee member ... Fernanda Santos, Times reporter in Arizona who previously covered City Hall ... Jason Otano, deputy general counsel at the New York City Council ... Lois Marbach , a Democratic political consultant who ran against Claire Shulman for Queens Borough President in 1986, in the wake of the Donald Manes corruption scandal ... Yankee pitcher CC Sabathia ... folk singer Cat Stevens ... the late actor Robin Williams ... and the late journalist, and author Ernest Hemingway.
