Sources described Gayle as a “go-to” Democratic political fundraiser in the borough, who was retained by the Orthodox Jewish community to expedite gun permits with the NYPD. Former NYPD Lt. Paul Dean, who is serving an 18-month sentence for failing to stop a bribery scheme that allowed well-connected New Yorkers obtain gun licenses quickly, told the FBI about a businesswoman close to de Blasio who regularly obtained VIP treatment at 1 Police Plaza for her clients, according to papers filed by Dean’s lawyer in Manhattan Federal Court as part of Dean’s bribery trial.

As always Cash is King.
God bless Tammany Hall.
