Emails appear to show New York mayor tried to hide extent of lead paint problem

Wednesday 08:07 GMT

Newly released emails show that a lead paint problem in New York City's public housing apartments was more widespread than Mayor Bill de Blasio had said publicly, CBS station WCBS-TV reported Monday.

The mayor made the comments amid a scandal that the New York City Housing Authority had failed to conduct mandatory lead paint inspections between 2012 and 2016. Emails released by City Hall show that de Blasio was told a day before announcing that four children had tested positive that there were actually more cases, WCBS-TV reports.
