De Blasio, Bratton targets of Ben Brafman’s gibe
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton
was barely out of earshot, having exited Wednesday’s PAL (Police Athletic League) lunch at the Pierre, when defense lawyer
made him the butt of a joke.
Brafman — whose firm has represented Jacob (the Jeweler) Arabo
Plaxico Burress, Sean Combs, “Sammy the Bull” Gravano, Charles Kushner
— was being honored along with former
Police Commissioner Robert J. McGuire.
“Police Commissioner Bratton just got a call and had to leave immediately because a very high-profile person was just arrested for jaywalking,” Brafman said. “… Mayor de Blasio.”
Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance, Margo
and John Catsimatidis, Hampton Sheet publisher Joan Jedell
and bachelor billionaire
erupted in laughter.
Brafman also said an invite to the luncheon had mistakenly been sent to a client who is serving 15 years in prison. “I would donate to the cause but I have no more money,” the man phoned Brafman.
“I gave you all my money.”
