Earlier this week, former Rep. Anthony Weiner of NY was released from a Bronx halfway house after serving a prison sentence for sexting an teenage girl. De Blasio's administration has also implemented police reforms, paid sick leave, increases in the minimum wage and new identification cards that allow illegal immigrants to access city services.
