Per The Brooklyn Paper, District Attorney’s Charles Hynes’ staff may be a little bitty bit busy running for the fucking hills to handle putting criminals (and innocent people) away for the foreseeable future. Or at least while their downtown offices get fumigated—again—for bedbugs.
The bloodsucking insects were discovered on the 20th floor, one story above the office of Hynes and other legal executives.
Hynes denied the latest outbreak, brushing past a reporter stationed outside his office complex in the Brooklyn Marriott tower, offering only a curt, “No,” when asked if his office had bed bugs.
Later, though, Hynes’s spokesman confirmed the infestation.
Okay, maybe they didn’t all leave. Hynes left some lowly ADAs to cower upon their cluttered desks. But that man has blown that popsicle stand. Any photos of him fleeing for his limo yet?
One assistant district attorney told us that frightened 20th-floor employees are shielding their chairs with garbage bags and bringing “safe clothes” in plastic bags — into which they change after the workday.
“How can I put the bad guys away when it feels like I’m being eaten alive?” she said.
