Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) avoided answering a question concerning a scandal involving New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and a donor during an event with De Blasio on Monday.

A reporter asked Sanders about the scandal surrounding Jona Rechnitz, a wealthy donor to De Blasio who attempted to bribe the mayor.

The New York Post reported on the scandal:

“Jona Rechnitz, the government key cooperator in an NYPD-corruption probe, told the feds that his former businessman pal Jeremy Reichberg was with him every step of the way as he bribed city officials — including attempts at bribing Mayor Bill de Blasio, newly unsealed court documents show.”

Sanders motioned to de Blasio to take the question, deciding it would be best not to speak on the matter.

“It has been investigated. There were no further actions taken by any investigative authorities,” de Blasio told the reporter. “We have run a clean administration, an administration of integrity.”
