POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by Nuclear Matters: NYPD reaction to Paris -- FANTASY SITE lobby takes shape -- 'Bloomberg Gadfly' debut

11/16/2015 07:15 AM EDT

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

DRAFTKINGS AND FANDUEL PREPARE TO LOBBY - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind and Bill Mahoney: "Daily fantasy sports site are preparing for a legislative push, retaining some of New York's most prominent lobbyists in the wake of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's determination that the companies were facilitating illegal gambling. A day after Schneiderman, a Democrat, sent DraftKings and FanDuel cease-and-desist letters last week, Steve Harris of Cordo & Company signed a $9,500-a-month contract with the companies. It's the second firm that the companies, working with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, have retained. The three signed a $7,500-a-month retainer with the Parkside Group in August.

The new muscle in New York is on top of the advisers that have already been helping the companies on a national scale. FanDuel hired Marc La Vorgna - who served as a spokesman for former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg - in October to help with messaging. The company has also retained Bradley Tusk, who ran Bloomberg's 2013 re-election campaign, to do grassroots campaign work, which included a Friday morning rally outside Schneiderman's offices in Lower Manhattan. Spokespeople for both FanDuel and DraftKings declined to comment on their legislative strategy, and are currently focusing on a legal response to Schneiderman. On Friday, the companies filed legal petitions to stave off Schneiderman's immediate push, though FanDuel announced later it would stop taking deposits from New York customers. But everyone is predicting a policy push.

JURY SELECTION BEGINS IN SKELOS TRIAL - POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez: Federal prosecutors are set to begin their case against former Senate majority leader Dean Skelos and his son, Adam, on charges that the senator used his office and position to win payments for his son from companies that had business before the state. In an eight-count indictment, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara's office has charged the two men on charges of conspiracy, extortion and solicitation of bribes. Jury selection is slated to begin Monday. According to Gerald Benjamin, a professor of political science at SUNY New Paltz, the interactions between father and son could play in their favor."It involves [Dean Skelos'] family directly... I think that creates the potential for sympathy," Benjamin said.

-- "He was helping a son who was probably a little lost in life," consultant Bill O'Reilly told the Daily News.

-- "In my opinion, and in the opinion of many others, this is a prosecution that never should have been brought in the first place," Dean Skelos told reporters Friday. "I still have absolute faith in our judicial system. After trial, I am convinced that a jury will find my son and myself innocent."

BRATTON: PARIS ATTACKS SHOW DANGERS OF CELL PHONE ENCRYPTION - POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: The attackers who killed more than 100 people in coordinated attacks Friday in Paris were equipped with assault rifles, suicide belts, and, of particular concern to New York City's top police official, phones that may have prevented surveillance from law enforcement officials.

"ISIS, taking advantage of the technology that the head of the FBI has been complaining about, I've been complaining about, going dark, the ability to go dark, I think you're going to see that playing a significant factor in this event," New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said in an interview Sunday on ABC's This Week With George Stephanopoulos. Bratton - who has complained about cell phone makers selling devices with no ability to break their encryption - said he is "very interested to see what types of phones they were equipped with, what types of apps they had on those phones. Were they, in fact, even in communication with each other at all?" In another interview on CBS' Face the Nation Sunday, Bratton went further, saying the deadly events in Paris show why the issue of cell phone encryption needed to be debated immediately.

-- "Bratton: NYPD training for event like Paris attacks," by Post's Tina Moore: "The city's top cop called the terrorist attacks in Paris a 'game changer' Sunday morning and said the NYPD is training to deal with a similar event. 'The idea that every one of these people were apparently equipped with a suicide vest reinforces the idea that if they take hostages you have to go in because they're going to kill them,' NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said on ABC's Eyewitness News. ... He said the NYPD would be training to respond to an attack similar to the one in France while gathering intelligence to stay ahead of the threat."

PITCHED BATTLE OVER NYPD BILLS - Wall Street Journal's Mara Gay: "Three pending pieces of City Council legislation could bring to a head a looming battle in City Hall: whether policy changes quietly negotiated with New York Police Commissioner William Bratton, and not lawmaking, are a better way to transform the NYPD. One bill, proposed following the death last year of Eric Garner, would make the use of chokeholds a crime. Another would compel officers to identify themselves to those they stop by name, rank and command. A third would require them to ask permission before conducting some searches. The bills have enough votes to pass the City Council, according to their sponsors and an informal survey of lawmakers by The Wall Street Journal."

DE BLASIO, THE EQUALIZER - The Atlantic's Molly Ball: "De Blasio is an ungainly 6 foot 5, with the hooded eyes and dour countenance of Sam the Eagle, the Muppets' harrumphing, censorious patriot. He can sometimes be oblivious to the way his actions come across, and as we spoke, he rubbed moisturizer into the backs of his long, hairy hands. He periodically pulled a flip phone-which he keeps for personal use to supplement the BlackBerry holstered at his hip-out of his suit pocket to check his text messages...

"Even some allies fret that de Blasio is getting too big for his britches. 'When you're mayor, you have the latitude to do those things, but only after you tend to business at home,' David Axelrod, the Democratic strategist and former Obama adviser, who has known de Blasio for more than a decade, told me. 'He has to be very careful, I think, not to play so hard at the national game that he is perceived as neglecting his responsibilities.'"

THE GRASS IS GREENER -- After a long wait, Flushing Meadows gets a parks alliance -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein and Gloria Pazmino: Nearly 2 1/2 years after a Queens councilwoman convinced the United States Tennis Association to commit millions of dollars to help underwrite a privately-funded conservancy for Queens' largest park, that conservancy has finally formed. Today Mayor Bill de Blasio and Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras will announce the creation of the Flushing Meadows Corona Park Alliance.

MEDIA MORNING - "Bloomberg Gadfly debuts in bid to shake-up financial commentary space," by Joe Pompeo: "With succinct, newsy commentary about the day's business and financial headlines being churned out by franchises like The Wall Street Journal's Heard on the Street, The Financial Times' Lex and Reuters' Breakingviews, is there room for another player in this space? Bloomberg L.P. thinks so, which is why it created Bloomberg Gadfly, a new website that went live Sunday with an initial team of about two dozen journalists devoted to fast-turnaround analysis pieces in the range of 400 to 800 words. ... Tim O'Brien, executive editor of Bloomberg View and Gadfly, said that Gadfly would be 'more global' and cover a wider range of subjects than its competitors while drawing on the deep data and financial information of the Bloomberg Terminal." ...

THE OUTSTANDING TAB - POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: City Hall is owed nearly $1.6 billion in uncollected debt from fines and tickets-nearly half of which comes from related penalties and not the actual summonses themselves, a new report reveals. The initial fines adjudicated by the Environmental Control Board, which handled summonses for 13 city agencies, amount to close to $483 million. Default penalties for failing to attend subsequent judicial hearings top $709 million, and interest totals more than $386 million. Those figures are laid out in a recent, first-of-its-kind report from the city Department of Finance, which unveiled extensive details about the potential revenue the has long eluded city coffers.

SCHNEIDERMAN SAYS NO - Nick Reisman on State of Politics: "Democratic Attorney General Eric Schneiderman at Thursday's Politico New York lunch gave a definitive answer when asked, directly, about whether he would run for governor in 2018. The answer? A straight-up no. In an interview with Politico New York's Capitol bureau chief Jimmy Vielkind, Schniederman ruled out running to succeed incumbent Andrew Cuomo. 'Can you rule out a run for governor in 2018?' Vielkind asked, according to a video of the event . The AG responded: 'Yeah, I'm not running for governor in 2018.' "

FIRST LOOK -- Uber targeted in ads by wheelchair advocates -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: An accessibility advocacy group is launching ads today accusing Uber of "wheelchair discrimination," in what a spokesman for the group describes as the first phase of a million-dollar ad buy, on NY1 and cable television. It's almost the exact same ad that the Spinal Association ran in July.

CITY LENDS SUPPORT TO TEACHERS' UNIONS IN FIGHT OVER DUES - POLITICO New York's Eliza Shapiro: Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration has filed an amicus brief in support of teachers unions in a national case that threatens to upend both the unions and organized labor around the country. De Blasio and Corporation Counsel Zachary Carter announced Sunday afternoon that New York City, along with many other city and state governments, had filed the brief with the United States Supreme Court in the Friedrichs vs. California Teachers Association case.

The Friedrichs case could determine whether unions can require employees who are not union members to pay dues. Local teachers unions and education reform groups in New York State have said the decision could fundamentally change how teachers unions, and other organized labor, do business. The city's brief focused almost exclusively on the potential danger to its long-standing collective bargaining agreements. The brief argues New York City helped create collective bargaining for public employees and that union dues are essential to fund that process.

REAL ESTATE -- FOREIGN EXCHANGE-"For Foreign Buyers, Family Homes Over Trophy Towers," by Times' Julie Satow: "Foreign buyers have been a mainstay of the New York real estate for years. But the profile of these buyers seems to be changing. Gone is the Chinese shopper snatching up apartments sight unseen on social media sites like WeChat, as are the Russian oligarchs who thought nothing of writing eight-figure checks for flashy penthouses with Central Park views. In many cases, those buyers left their apartments empty for much of the year. But now, many international buyers like Mr. Amaro are looking to purchase a home for their families."

MIDTOWN MOVES-"Eighth Avenue Transforms as Upscale Office Towers Rise," by WSJ's Keiko Morris: "On a stretch of Manhattan's Eighth Avenue, high-end office towers loom over low-rise retail shops. And filling up these skyscrapers are blue-chip companies and hedge funds along with big law firms. In less than a decade, the tract roughly from West 40th Street to Columbus Circle has added more than 3 million square feet of commercial space. Some real-estate executives are predicting more office buildings could rise at even a faster pace."

HOUSEKEEPING-"De Blasio, Been defend housing plan amid concerns over gentrification," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Mayor Bill de Blasio and his housing commissioner responded Friday to widespread concerns their zoning plan will displace residents of some of the city's poorest communities. In separate public appearances, de Blasio and Vicki Been defended their five-borough housing plan against fears about gentrification that have been raised during community meetings throughout the city in recent months."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Union exec Colavito , actor Adam Green, creator and star of the now defunct political comedy show, LunchBox with Adam Green, and scribe Bob Port and AARP's Bill Ferris (on Saturday)

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: The New York Cosmos won the NASL championship, 3-2, over the Ottawa Fury before a crowd of 10,166 at Hofstra's Shuart Stadium to send Raul and Marcos Senna into retirement as winners once again.

-- Patriots 27, Giants 26: About as close to a victory as a team can get without the win. A late Odell Beckham touchdown was overturned on replay. A late interception by Landon Collins that would have ended the game was dropped when Collins hit his head on the turf. And Stephen Gostkowski's 54-yard field goal barely slipped through the uprights.

-- Knicks 95, Pelicans 87: Carmelo Anthony's 29 points and 13 rebounds, paired with 12 points from noted Frenchman and reserve forward Kevin Seraphin proved too much for Anthony Davis' 36 points to overcome.

-- Rangers 4, Maple Leafs 3: Mats Zuccarello's third-period goal was the game winner.

-- The day ahead: the Islanders host the Coyotes at Barclays. The Columbia men's basketball team, led by Alex Rosenberg, have a chance to draw national attention with a 9 PM game at Kansas State. The top two women's teams in the country, Connecticut and Ohio State, face off as well. Make sure you see UConn's Breanna Stewart.
