NYCHA Extortion Take Down Inner City Press Reported First Before 6 AM Now Releases

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 6 – For days Inner City Press had heard from its sources there would be a "takedown" on February 6, each SDNY Magistrate Judge would handle seven to 10 defendants.

Arrests happen at 6 am. So at 5:55 am Inner City Press tweeted it, first to X subscribers with the spoiler alert: the expectation was that each of the current or former NYCHA employees would be released on bond the same day.  

And then hours later at 9:39 am the prosecutors announced it:

"11:00 a.m. - A press conference will be held today to announce the unsealing of Complaints charging 70 current and former NYCHA employees with bribery and extortion offenses.  The defendants have been charged with allegedly accepting cash payments from contractors in exchange for awarding NYCHA contracts.  Today’s charges constitute the largest number of federal bribery charges on a single day in Department of Justice history."

Media rushed around reporting it.   But Inner City Press had it first, and after discretely waiting, published it first.
