Well This Kinda Proves IT.....

BLOOMBAG ....Our Former POS Mayor IN Bed With Ubah .....
The ONE Guy Responsible for Turning OUR Medallions into Real TIN........
This is from the NY Post .........

..
Uber agreed to put a “Bloomberg button” on its app on Election Day and give every American free rides to and from the polls — with trip costs covered by the campaign.

The ride-company’s then-CEO Travis Kalanick also offered up Uber’s top drivers for campaign work. Airbnb properties were proposed for Bloomberg yard signs. And DoorDash delivery people would have slipped literature under doors during food runs.

Tusk is convinced these nontraditional approaches proposed in 2016 could bolster Bloomberg’s chances in 2020

Bloomberg gave 80 million dollars to the Demoncrats for the upcoming election.

Let’s see what 80 million buys you.

After serving as campaign manager of Mr. Bloomberg’s reelection effort, in 2010 Mr. Tusk founded Tusk Strategies with the goal of running campaigns for companies and institutions rather than politicians. At the time, Walmart was looking for a way to enter markets without pushback from powerful unions. Mr. Tusk urged city councils, including New York’s, to stop blocking its entry by polling customers, launching television ads and mobilizing constituents who wanted the choice of shopping at Walmart.

Then one of Mr. Bloomberg’s former deputy mayors called him with a proposition: “There’s this guy with a small transportation startup. He’s having some regulatory problems. Would you mind talking to him?” It was Uber. The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission had sent Uber a cease and desist letter, and its then-CEO Travis Kalanick needed someone who understood New York politics. Mr. Tusk mounted successful campaigns on behalf of the company in New York and other cities, including Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/how-bradley-tusk-went-from-political-insider-to-making-politicians-crazy-1535726695&ved=2ahUKEwiCutnt7dTdAhUpc98KHX0GBXwQFjAAegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw1URUNjomF3x5TQVyWIIO8i&ampcf=1

Which one of Mr. Bloomberg's former deputy mayors introduced Mr.Tusk to Mr. Kalanick? I think it wasHoward Wolfson. From 2010 to 2013, Wolfson was the New York City Deputy Mayor for Government Affairs and Communications. In this capacity, Wolfson oversaw local, state and federal government relations in addition to helping to craft the Bloomberg Administration’s overall communications strategy. He was particularly involved in the education, transportation, and technology sectors.
Wolfson served as the communications director for Hillary Clinton’s history-making run for the presidency in 2008. He has worked in and out of government, serving as Chief of Staff to Congresswoman Nita Lowey, and as the Executive Director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Wolfson has worked on campaigns at every level of government, advising Charles Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Andrew Cuomo, among others.
Now Mr. Wolfson, Democratic political strategist and close Bloomberg aide, confirmed to The Washington Post he will oversee Mr. Bloomberg's $80 million spending effort in the 2018 midterm cycle, largely to support Democratic efforts to regain the majority of the House.

This revelation is MIND BLOWING. So, the TLC went from a Cease and Desist letter to opening the doors wide for UBER.   The TLC was enforcing the rules and Bloomberg turned it around for his own satisfaction. Rules! What Rules? And, those in the TLC that helped him are still running the show, at least it appears so.

From July 14 2014:

Uber is looking to hire a senior executive with either experience running political campaigns or running cities, Kara Swisher of Re/Code reports.

"We're in a political campaign, and the candidate is Uber and the opponent is an an [expletive] named Taxi," Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said on stage at the Code Conference in May.

So it makes sense he'd go after someone with political experience.

Kalanick has since been in talks with people like Democratic strategist Howard Wolfson. He's the candidate who has gotten furthest along in the hunt, according to Re/Code. The talks between Wolfson and Uber have reportedly ended, though.

Uber already has the former deputy commissioner for policy and planning at the New York Taxi and Limousine Commission, Ashwini Chhabra, working for the startup. But Kalanick is still trying to beef up his staff.

I stand corrected!  Either way it always  comes back  to Mr.Oz/Mr.Bloomberg.

According to the below Recode article from September 26, 2016, it's not Mr.Wolfson that called Mr. Tusk  it was Kevin Sheekey. Sheekey was hired by Bloomberg L.P. in 1997 to work as the company's chief Washington lobbyist. He followed Bloomberg into politics in 2001, designated "the architect of Mr. Bloomberg's unlikely mayoral bid" by The New York Times.As part of the Bloomberg administration, Sheekey served as president of the New York Host Committee, the organization in charge of overseeing the Republican National Convention, and later, as Bloomberg's deputy mayor of government affairs.

Sheekey played a prominent role in developing projects such as PlaNYC and obtaining billions in school construction funds for New York City from state legislators. He is also known for exploring and organizing Bloomberg's potential presidential run in 2008. The mayor eventually opted to complete his second term rather than run for president.

Sheekey returned to Bloomberg L.P. in 2010 to oversee government relations and communications for the company and serve as chairman of Bloomberg Government, a subscription data service providing aggregated government news and analysis. He eventually rose within Bloomberg L.P. to the role of Global Head of Communications, Government Relations and Marketing. He is based part-time in London where he represents Bloomberg L.P.'s global business presence.

In May 2016, Sheekey became a board member of Tech:NYC, a non profit organization that represents the interest of New York City's technology sector through the support of member companies like Google, Bloomberg, Uber, and Facebook.



Bradley Tusk never intended to become a startup consigliere. That changed when fellow Michael Bloomberg adviser Kevin Sheekey called Tusk, asking him to take a meeting with Uber CEO Travis Kalanick.

"He says, ‘Hey, there’s a guy with a small transportation startup. He’s having some regulatory problems; would you mind talking to him?’" Tusk recalled on the latest Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher. "Later that day, I become Uber’s first political consultant."

"[Kalanick] called back and said ‘Hey, your fee’s a little steep, would you take some equity?’ Thank God I said .

FOLLOW THE MONEY!

Bloomberg’s 80 million dollar contribution to Democrats will not buy him the presidency -

BUT IT WILL BUY HIM THE OBEISANCE OF DEMOCRATIC ELECTED AND APPOINTED OFFICIALS!

Yesterday, JP Morgan came out with numbers that indicate that app drivers are earning half of what they earned in 2014. Today they announced that they will guide Lyft in their IPO.  Drivers earning subsistence pay is part of the sales pitch.

Welcome investors to the mobile plantation!

Let's hope Michael Bloomberg is the next famous person toppled by the MeToo movement. The movement should shine a light on Michael Bloomberg's long well-documented History of Sexism?

From 2007:

possible presidential bid by Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, could be threatened by new details of a sexual harassment lawsuit that alleged he said "kill it!" to an executive who told him that she was pregnant.

Apart from being accused of suggesting that Sekiko Sakai Garrison abort her baby, he also allegedly said to her: "Great! Number 16!", an apparent reference to the number of pregnancies among his staff.

The billionaire businessman is also claimed to have pointed out a woman to Mrs Garrison, and said: "If you looked like that, I would do you in a second."

The suit accused him of referring to Mexican clients as "jumping beans" and saying of a female worker who was having trouble finding a nanny that "all you need is some black who doesn't even have to speak English to rescue it from a burning building".
Mr Bloomberg, 65, settled the lawsuit in 2000. A gag clause on both sides was part of the deal but details of the allegations made against him were leaked yesterday to the Associated Press.

Michael Bloomberg to donate $100 million to House Democrats for ...
2018-midterm-elections

Michael Bloomberg's spending on House races in the midterms has passed the $80 million he promised for the cycle and is heading toward $100 million as he sees an increasing chance for Democrats to win control.

Some more propaganda:

Bradley Tusk is aventure capitalist who offers his expertise to startups facing regulatory hurdles. (He was also former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg’s campaign manager and Senator Chuck Schumer’s communications director.) Tusk was one of Uber’s earliest investors, and he’s had a front seat to the company’s—and the industry’s—struggles with local governments. “I’m probably the only Uber investor who would say this, ” he says of the IDG, “but I’m a fan of theirs.” Like Campbell, Tusk also thinks the utilization algorithm component is key—those who are actively driving full-time could qualify for the minimum wage. But beyond providing better conditions and earnings for workers, Tusk thinks the minimum wage is just good business. Better wages retain employees, and retaining employees means a business has happier workers who also know how to do a job well—and that ultimately keeps customers happy.

Tusk acknowledges that given his position as an Uber investor, his are unlikely opinions on the matter: “I’d probably get in trouble for saying this, but I’m not sure that [minimum wage] is a terrible idea from a business perspective.” He also believes that while Uber needed to take an aggressive stance at launch in order to break into the transportation market, the company can now use a more cooperative approach when working with local governments. Whether the ridesharing industry feels compelled to do so in regards to minimum wage, says Tusk, will depend on what gets a better short-term reception. Both Uber and Lyft are planning to file for IPOs in 2019. “It’s whatever narrative plays best to the market,” says Tusk. “Not sure which way it will go, but that will drive the decision in the short term more than anything else.” And what matters to these companies in the short term will likely have lasting effects on the futures of rideshare drivers.

I’m shocked, I’m shocked! 

Uber’s former Minister of Propaganda (circa 2015) is FOR the app driver pay rules.

Is this another case of tail wags dog?
