Remove Michael Bloomberg as mayor of New York sign now

As you know, New York City and Mayor Michael Bloomberg are being sued in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York for their role in denying permits for protests during the 2004 Republican National Convention. Mayor Bloomberg gave a sworn statement in which he claimed no unique knowledge of the denials. However, the July 31 New York Times reports that according to court documents, Bloomberg had direct knowledge of the denials. Moreover, these documents appear to show that these denials were politically motivated, and not made out of concern for public safety or damaging the Great Lawn as city officials claim. For example, one document appears to indicate there was a blackout on any political gatherings in the Great Lawn during the convention.

The documents in question appear to show that Bloomberg received regular updates from the city Parks Department regarding the status of the permits. Therefore, it is possible that Mayor Bloomberg is guilty of failing to prevent this violation of civil rights, as well as making a perjurous sworn statement.

Under Chapter 1, section 9 of the New York City charter, the governor is the only one who can remove the mayor from office. The charter requires the mayor to be suspended for no more than 30 days pending investigation of any charges against him. It is inconceivable that failing to prevent the denial of civil rights and making a perjurous sworn statement are not grounds for removal. We, the undersigned, ask you to begin the process of removing Mayor Bloomberg from office.
