Did NYC Mayor De Blasio Strong Arm Bernie Sanders into a New York Debate?

That’s one accusation being levied against De Blasio’s camp by a watchdog group [1].

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, an ethics watchdog group, says that de Blasio strong-armed Sanders into agreeing to debate on Clinton’s terms by baiting the Vermont senator with permits for a rally in the city later this month. The group argues that de Blasio’s actions advanced the interests of Clinton, whom the mayor endorsed last October.
