Insiders reveal Eric Adams’s backdoor deal to try and secure a contract for his friend delayed the opening of a massive immigrant shelter

The decision to create massive “tent cities” for illegal aliens has left many New Yorkers seething.

The Big Apple’s sanctuary city status has allowed these illegals to come in unchallenged while also allowing the city to build new areas for housing.

Now, some insiders have revealed that Mayor Eric Adams made a backdoor deal to try and get his friend a contract, and it delayed the opening of one of the biggest immigrant shelters.

Adams delayed opening a tent shelter to make a deal with his friend

New York City Mayor Eric Adams was under massive pressure last summer to try and cut the huge price tag for sheltering tens of thousands of illegal aliens who were arriving at the Big Apple every day.

Adams decided to tell various agency heads to start implementing strategies that would keep costs down as much as possible.

As a result, officials started to look for vendors to help with a sprawling tent facility that was set to be constructed on a decommissioned federal military base known as Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn.

But one top adviser saw the directive as an opportunity to try and get one of the Mayor’s longtime friends in on the deal. 

According to Politico, Tim Pearson delayed the opening of the shelter at Floyd Bennett Field by wielding his influence within City Hall so he could pursue the contract.

The information comes amidst interviews with several people who were involved with the process and two of those people said Pearson was working to clinch the security contract with former NYPD detective Bo Dietl’s company.

Dietl runs a Manhattan-based security and private investigation firm and has raised money for Adam’s Mayoral campaign.

He’s also a one-time independent Mayoral candidate who has not just known Adams for years but has also supported him since his days in the New York State Senate.

Dietl threw a fundraiser for Adams in September 2021 which netted the campaign $13,850 according to campaign finance records. 

He reportedly spoke to donors at that event, saying, “We get rid of crime, real estate will go up, people will come back! Eric Adams, he will get it done – don’t listen to any bullsh–!”

However, despite Dietl’s connections to Adams, Pearson’s attempt to secure him the contract failed. 

The attempt highlights how New York City’s administration has an insatiable appetite to turn longtime friends and campaign donors into partners that perform crucial governmental tasks. 

The deal was in the works for some time

According to records obtained by Politico, Dietl has met with Schools Chancellor David Banks and Deputy Mayor for Public Safety Phil Banks since Adams took office.

Dietl has purportedly said he heard discussions about a contract opportunity last year, so he started to prepare his company Beau Dietl & Associates to get ready just in case his firm was chosen.

He also purchased additional weapon scanning equipment, hired more employees, and brought in a business partner who was going to help the company qualify for various contracts slated for minority and women-owned firms.

After telling Adams about all of the steps he took, Adams told Dietl that the company appeared to “check all the boxes.”

However, Dietl claims, “That was the last I heard,” and said that his friendship with Adams shouldn’t get in the way of any future chances to work with his administration.
