Staffer booted for blasting NYC mayor’s handling of ‘perilous’ immigrant influx in undercover sting

Following yet another undercover sting by a fearless Project Veritas reporter, a City Hall employee in the Big Apple has been fired after he was recorded slamming New York City Mayor Eric Adams over a bowl of pasta and a nice glass of wine.

Cristopher Baugh, whom the New York Post describes as “a member of Adams’ advance team,” called the stream of migrants entering New York in large part courtesy of a Texas bus ticket “a very perilous situation.”

“And I don’t know that Eric Adams is capable enough to navigate it,” he confided to the undercover reporter.

“The city is broke,” Baugh stated. “We’re housing immigrants right now from Texas. It would be very easy to be like, ‘nope, not anymore.'”

“We’re building a tent city. We’re parking these people in plastic tents on Randalls Island,” he continued. “They’re not getting good stuff. We’re kicking them out of hotels because it’s tourist season and hotels want to raise their rates. It’s a f–ked proposition any way you look at it.”

In another conversation recorded by Project Veritas, the chatty staffer also went off on unvaccinated members of the NYPD.

“Being a cop is like the cushiest gig in the city,” he said. “Like, you might get shot, but otherwise it’s very good.”

According to Baugh, the cops who were fired for refusing to take the experimental COVID-19 vaccine got what they deserved.

“They [former NYPD officers] chose not to do a very, very harmless thing that protects the rest of society — F–k ’em,” he said. “I don’t give a sh-t. They’re like ‘wah, this is unfair’ — f–king deal with it. I have no sympathy for them.”

It was for “disparaging first responders,” according to a spokesperson for Mayor Eric Adams, that Baugh was shown the door — not for his lack of faith in Hizzoner.

To hear Adams’ office tell it, Baugh wasn’t hired by the Adams administration and was just “a low-level staffer who had no private or special access to the mayor.”

And for disparaging the police in a city that has all but crippled their ability to do anything with progressive bail reform policies, Baugh got the boot.

“His comments today disparaging first responders are completely unacceptable, and we’ve terminated this employee effective immediately,” said Adams’ press secretary, Fabien Levy, in a statement. “Mayor Adams will always stand up for our first responders and have their backs.”

As for Baugh’s other comments, said Levy, consider the “shameful” source — that evil Project Veritas.

“Let’s also not forget that, time and again, Project Veritas has lied to spin false narratives and deceive the American people,” Levy said. “This is an enterprise run by a convicted criminal and one that admitted to lying about their identity and their intent just to secretly record and have conversations with this now-former employee.”

Over on Twitter, Levy’s comments are being met with a healthy dose of skepticism.

“Attempting to disparage project veritas is just pathetic,” one user tweeted. “There’s nothing to edit or manipulate when the person is literally speaking on camera! Smh,unreal!”

“[S]ounds like cancel culture run amok!!! when is the time for a free exchange of ideas???” asked another.

“Project Veritas exposing the very obvious to anyone with a brain and an intimate knowledge of history,” stated a third. “Follow the $$$$$$!”
