Mr. BDB has been feeling the heat over the condition of the city's subways, so he thought it was a good idea to hold a press conference underground back in July in order to deny responsibility and blame the Governor. This photo op backfired when it was revealed by newspapers and confirmed by the NYPD that the mayor ordered the transit bureau to sweep all homeless persons out of the stations he was planning to visit so the press wouldn't take any embarrassing photographs. His face was red anyway.
